Living room tables do not should just be practical, they can 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 area, then perhaps you want to choose a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables might be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut figurines, flowers 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 therefore are more of an home design statement. A living room is not just a room in which the TV is stored, and a table can be quite a great centerpiece for your room where the very idea of living is something in addition to watching TV.
