Living area tables do not only need to be practical, they will 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 area, then perhaps you want to select a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables might be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut flowers, figurines and pictures or everything that 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 in which the TV is stored, and a table may be a great centerpiece for the room where the notion of living is something besides watching TV.
