In the early 20th century, bungalows represented the hight of efficiency and convenience to middle class home-owners. Americans wanted houses that could accommodate an increasingly hectic, mobile lifestyle, they did not want to sacrifice certain domestic traditions - such as having a dining room in which to enjoy special (or even daily) family feasts.

Fortunately, the old-fashioned dining room underwent a transformation when translated to this new, modern setting: revitalised by the bungalow's open floor plans, built-in cabinetry, and Arts and Crafts sensibility, it shed its stuffy, sequestered image to become a living space that was as stylish as it was functional.

With historical and design analysis by Paul Duchscherer, dozens on vivid photographs by Douglas Keister, and archival images from period publications, Bungalow Basics: Dining Rooms is part of a series of little books highlighting specific aspects of American bungalows.
