Living room area tables do not only need to be practical, they may 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 might be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut figurines, pictures and flowers or everything 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 in which the TV is stored, and a table might be a great centerpiece for the room where the thought of living is something other than watching TV.
