Living room area tables do not simply need to 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 room, then perhaps you want to choose 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 something 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 a great centerpiece for a room where the thought of living is something aside from watching TV.
