Living area tables do not just need to be practical, they can also add to your décor. Perhaps you want to purchase 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 area. Decorative tables may be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut pictures, figurines and flowers 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 decorating statement. A living room is not just a room where TV is stored, and a table can be a great centerpiece to get a room where the idea of living is something apart from watching TV.
