Living area tables do not only need to be practical, they can also add to your décor. Perhaps you want to choose 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 family area. Decorative tables might be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut pictures, flowers and figurines or whatever that 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 home design statement. A living room is not just a room where TV is stored, and a table could be a great centerpiece for your room where the notion of living is something besides watching TV.
