Ideas for TV?

So, as I mentioned before, my husband and I are moving to a new apartment in a little over a month (woo hoo!). We also decided to upgrade our TV to a 42" LCD one. Currently, we have a flat screen (but still a normal tube TV) that came with a matching silver stand. so it's very neat and clean looking. Our new TV will need a stand of some sort. I don't really want a silver or black one, because I want the room to look soft & inviting. But, on the other hand, I don't want to get something in a wood (our furniture is cherry) and have it be a clashing shade. Should I get something totally different? My mother-in-law is going to give me her small curio, which is kind of an oak. Should I maybe play off of that? And I think I want something long, so that I'd be able to dress it up a bit on the sides. The other dilemma is that I don't want anything too expensive. I'm hoping to stay like $300 and under... I think the reason it's such a big deal is that it's going to be a focal point in the room. The whole kitchen/dining/living area is very open, and I want to be able to see the TV from every angle. Anyone have any thoughts? :)
