The main focal point of a southwest dining room is the dining table. Wood is a perfect choice as well as painted wood with wrought iron accents. Depending on the size of your space available, the rule of thumb is to choose the chunkiest wood table your space allows. Dings and dents in the wood add character and also allow families who have children or entertain frequently to relax and enjoy time well spent in the room. Bench seating is a good choice as it will seat more people and looks so welcome in a rustic style southwestern hacienda.
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.
