Family area tables do not only need to be practical, they will 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 purchase a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables is often just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut figurines, pictures and flowers 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 decor statement. A living room is not just a room the place that the TV is stored, and a table can be a great centerpiece for the room where the idea of living is something apart from watching TV.
