Living room tables do not only need to be practical, they could 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, then perhaps you want to invest in a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables may be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut figurines, flowers and pictures or whatever that is important to you. Some living rooms are homey and lived in, where others are hardly used at all and so are more of an home design statement. A living room is not just a room the place that the TV is stored, and a table could be a great centerpiece for your room where the concept of living is something besides watching TV.
