Family area 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 room area, then perhaps you want to select a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables could be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut flowers, figurines and pictures or whatever that is important to you. Some living rooms are homey and lived in, where others are hardly used at all and they are more of an interior design statement. A living room is not just a room the place that the TV is stored, and a table can be a great centerpiece for the room where the idea of living is something in addition to watching TV.
