While most of us might take dining room for granted, we don’t realize the important role that it plays in our lives. In ancient times, Greeks used to have this concept of Hearth, a central pit of fire inside a home, where families would gather around to enjoy food, talk about their daily lives and have some happier moments. This even extended to the town centres of the ancient cities, where anyone could claim guest privileges to be treated well when they were travelling. Hearth was, in essence, the heart of every home. In modern times, however, the hearth has been replaced by kitchens, where we cook our food. But one thing that hasn’t gone out of practice is our habit of congregating in one place to enjoy delicious meals and have a lively chatter. That responsibility now lies on the hefty shoulders of a dining room. And when it is equipped with the right settings, then it becomes the perfect place and, truly, the heart of every home.
Finally, mission dining tables are very homey. There is something very comfortable and family-like about sitting together around a large, rectangular mission dining room table with all the meals and viands lined up in front of you, with everyone digging in for their share. In a party setting, however, the mission dining room table can be made to look very banquet-like, especially if you have an extensive and colorful array of dishes to offer your guests.
