Living 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 room, then perhaps you want to select a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables may 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 they are more of an decor statement. A living room is not just a room where TV is stored, and a table might be a great centerpiece to get a room where the concept of living is something in addition to watching TV.
