The Parlor Room

76

In the 19th century, parlor rooms or “sacred rooms” were established to be sitting rooms for families. These large rooms would occupy families where they would sit with one another & do various activities. Sometimes, the man of the house would read aloud while the women did knitwork. When the man was absent, the women would take turns reading. This room also served as a meeting room for women to socialize with one another; friend or relative. A lot of friendships were formed in parlor rooms as they bonded over various topics, discussions, & interests. BRENLEY wants to uphold the same customs & traditions with its own version of The Parlor Room.
