Origin of the Dining Room

by Roger Hollenbeck on 05/25/14

In Bill Bryson's book At Home Bill writes an amusing part about what caused dining rooms to come into existence.  Bill writes: The dining room didn't acquire its modern meaning until the late seventeen century.  "When Thomas Jefferson put a dining room in Monticello, it was quite a dashing thing to do.  Previously, meals had been served at little tables in any convenient room.   It "wasn't the sudden universal urge to dine in a space exclusively dedicated to the purpose, but rather, by and large, a simple desire on the part of the mistress of the house to save her lovely upholstered furniture from greasy desecration.  Upholstered furniture was expensive and the last thing a proud owner wanted was to have anyone wiping fingers on it.
