Living area tables do not should just be practical, they are able to also add to your décor. Perhaps you want to invest in 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 could be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut flowers, pictures and figurines 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 interior decorating statement. A living room is not just a room where TV is stored, and a table could be a great centerpiece for any room where the notion of living is something apart from watching TV.
