Family area tables do not only need to be practical, they may also add to your décor. Perhaps you want to select 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 living 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 therefore are more of an decor statement. A living room is not just a room the place that the TV is stored, and a table can be quite a great centerpiece to get a room where the notion of living is something other than watching TV.
