Family area tables do not should just 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, then perhaps you want to invest in 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 figurines, pictures 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 they are more of an decor statement. A living room is not just a room the location where the TV is stored, and a table might be a great centerpiece for the room where the very idea of living is something besides watching TV.
