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 living area, then perhaps you want to select a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables may be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut flowers, pictures and figurines or anything 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 where the TV is stored, and a table may be a great centerpiece for the room where the thought of living is something aside from watching TV.
