Living area tables do not should just be practical, they will 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 purchase a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables can be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut figurines, pictures and flowers or whatever that 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 planning 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 notion of living is something besides watching TV.
