Bungalow Basics: Dining rooms
Bungalow dining rooms were an agreeable mix of the old and the new, offering early-twentieth-century homeowners the latest in modern conveniences and a way to maintain important domestic traditions. Today we admire bungalow dining rooms primarily for their innovative and distinctive design elements: natural-finished woodwork, including rich wainscoting; inviting entryways, sometimes highlighted with colonnades; colorful art-glass windows and lighting fixtures; box-beamed ceilings; massive built-in sideboards; and other built-in furniture. Exceptional photographs, archival images from period publications, and informed text illustrate the beauty and practicality of the bungalow dining room, which served up not only family fare but provided an enjoyable living space.
