Living room tables do not should just 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 choose 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 figurines, flowers and pictures or whatever is important to you. Some living rooms are homey and lived in, where others are hardly used at all and are more of an interior decorating statement. A living room is not just a room the location where the TV is stored, and a table could be a great centerpiece for the room where the notion of living is something in addition to watching TV.
