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.
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.
