Family area tables do not just 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 select a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables might be just as much fun as practical ones. They are utilized to display freshly cut flowers, pictures and figurines 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 the location where the TV is stored, and a table could be a great centerpiece for a room where the notion of living is something aside from watching TV.
