If you have a home that is pre-open space plan, then you know how hard it can be to get people to feel at ease in your living room. But with the right décor and furnishings - including living room tables - you can turn this once little used space in to a beehive of activity, not only for visitors and guests, though the family as well. If you have the advantage of doing a complete revamp of your room, you really should consider going with a little less formal look. Currently, homes are more relaxed in their décor, more and more inviting to visitors and family. Picking a different style of furniture or a more colorful pattern of fabric can make the room more user friendly.
