Dining rooms have been around for a long time. Medieval dining would have been in vast halls, which were cold, draughty and probably very noisy. Dining room furniture was basic, solid and functional. Huge open fires, stone floor and very little comfort would have been other features of medieval dining. Gradually there was a shift away from the large dining halls to smaller more compact and no doubt cosier parlours. Initially the room would have been next to the great hall, but grew in popularity as somewhere to dine.
Many people are tempted to design their dining room in a formal way where everything is perfectly matched, looking like they are living among Better Homes and Garden magazine pages. This style may please some, but for others, creative energies are better delighted using a Southwestern theme decor. A southwest style dining room lends warmth and says ”welcome.” An important idea to keep in mind when developing such a dining room, is to bring in a casual, comfortable, and imperfect feel. While shopping for items for a Southwest dining room, places like flea markets and second hand stores can be a great source for finding just the right distressed piece.
When it comes to dining room furniture most of us overlook the fact that dining room chairs are as important as the tables to make the room appealing. Dining chairs should compliment the style and structure of the tables and also be comfortable. When buying dining room chairs it is always better to keep certain key points in mind such as your dining table’s finish, style and dimensions. Dining room chairs come in various styles like dining arm chairs and chairs without arms in wood or leather finish, upholstered, etc. With so many varieties of dining table chairs we need to carefully consider our requirements as well as our personal liking. Moreover, the chairs have to complement the table for which you need to consider the size, design and finish of both the table and chairs you select.
It got to the stage where the great dining hall would have been used only for celebrations and special occasions. Dining room furniture would have had to be scaled down to use in the smaller parlour room. The room for dining had been born, and it has continued to evolve and change over the centuries. The changes to dining room furniture have been gradual, but in many respects, there are still the same elements in any room used for dining. We have the table of course and the chairs.
