Table Style Preview

As previews for tables need more space, what if we have an preview at the bottom of the Styles sidebar? there you can show the previews which are already available in the dialog.

Problem, when you select a style you see the preview, but the style of the tabel change also.

Good idea. I think at the bottom is the best place. How is it visually separated from the styles list?

One click: preview is shown but style is not assigned to table.
Double-click: preview is shown and style is assigned to table.
I see no problem here?
