Living room tables do not simply need to be practical, they are able to also add to your décor. If you do not have a family or have a small family and do not spend much time in the family room, then perhaps you want to buy a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables is often just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut flowers, figurines and pictures or everything that is important to you. Some living rooms are homey and lived in, where others are hardly used at all and so are more of an decor statement. A living room is not just a room in which the TV is stored, and a table may be a great centerpiece for a room where the notion of living is something other than watching TV.
