Family area tables do not should just be practical, they could 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 buy a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables can be just as much fun as practical ones. They are utilized to display freshly cut figurines, pictures and flowers or whatever 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 interior design statement. A living room is not just a room where the TV is stored, and a table can be quite a great centerpiece for your room where the concept of living is something apart from watching TV.
