Living room tables do not simply need to be practical, they can 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 family area, then perhaps you want to purchase a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables is often just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut pictures, figurines and flowers or anything that is important to you. Some living rooms are homey and lived in, where others are hardly used at all and so are more of an interior design statement. A living room is not just a room where the TV is stored, and a table can be a great centerpiece for any room where the concept of living is something besides watching TV.
