Living room tables do not should just be practical, they may 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 area, then perhaps you want to select a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables can 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 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 any room where the thought of living is something besides watching TV.
