Living area tables do not should just be practical, they can also add to your décor. Perhaps you want to choose a more decorative table rather than a functional table if you do not have a family or have a small family and do not spend much time in the family room. Decorative tables can be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut flowers, figurines 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 design statement. A living room is not just a room where TV is stored, and a table can be quite a great centerpiece for a room where the concept of living is something apart from watching TV.
