Living room area tables do not just need to be practical, they can also add to your décor. Perhaps you want to select 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 family area. Decorative tables might 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 planning 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 idea of living is something besides watching TV.
