Custom Furnishings and Fabrications Where Access Teas Bring Worldly Flavors
Hallways in great American manor houses were often gathering places for
guests. When "calling," it was customary to be recieved in a spacious
hall, where one's card could be placed in a calling card receiver, often
held on a side table, perhaps a coat or hat were taken to be hung up. A
chair or bench was offered for the waiting vistior or perhaps they were
taken to a parlor to wait.
Present day hallways where family and friends are received are also called
entryways. It is located at the front entrance of a home. Hallways have
downsized and re-purposed in comparision to the spacious areas of earlier
architectural styles. It is now served as an area to prepare to go out.
The entryway furnishings may include a chest for storage, a gorgeous mirror and an
ocassional chair or two flanking the entryway chest. Perhaps it may include
an entry bench.
