These tended to be rectangular in design, although as many TV's are positioned in the corner of the room, it wasn't long before corner TV stands were developed.
In the early days of flat panel televisions, the vast majority of TV units were glass TV stands.
Flat screen TV cabinets (sometimes called a credenza) are a slightly different option when compared to the other types of stand discussed here.
Another good reason to consider a mount-style stand is the fact that, for models that include the shelves for your equipment underneath, your TV will be fixed above the shelves rather than sitting on the top shelf.
With a traditional glass or wooden stand, your TV will often be standing on the top of the unit (unless you have it separately wall mounted). Therefore, this leaves less surface area to place your external hardware.
One potential drawback with these corner designs is that they can provide limited space for your AV equipment - especially if the rear goes to a point to fit exactly in the corner. Therefore, if you have a range of amplifiers, players and games consoles to install, then you might need to consider where they are all going to go.
