Waring & Gillow - London, publisher, 1905 - 1915
This image shows a dining room as advertised in a catalogue of London-based manufacturers Waring & Gillow, published between 1905 and 1915.
British homes at the turn of the century had separate dining rooms. These rooms were used for family meals and to entertain guests.
This dining room is decorated in shades of red, green and blue with a Turkey rug to match. These rich colours remained popular in dining rooms throughout the turn of the century.
