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.
Surround yourself with the things you love to create a fun and relaxing feeling. Display special pieces you have acquired throughout your years of travel. Or maybe you have found pottery predominant of the southwest or figurines of saints at flea markets. Consider displaying them in your hutch or sideboard. Small pieces may be used as center pieces on your table. If you switch your accessories around often, each piece will get the attention it deserves. Placemats and table runners will add a soft colorful touch to your dining table.
