Living room tables do not should just be practical, they are able to 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 area, then perhaps you want to choose 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 flowers, pictures and figurines or something that is important to you. Some living rooms are homey and lived in, where others are hardly used at all and are also more of an interior decorating statement. A living room is not just a room where the TV is stored, and a table could be a great centerpiece for any room where the concept of living is something other than watching TV.
