We no longer live in houses with parlours and drawing rooms, but one room that has remained popular is the one for dining. Many of us have a room for dining, and even smaller houses that are more modest have at least a dining space. There has been an increase in popularity of the kitchen diner, and whilst this may not be as grand a place to eat as a dining room, it still contains the basic dining room furniture. It doesn’t matter where it is you dine; you still need a chair to sit on and a table to rest your plate of food on.
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.
