The Octagon

In the early 1800s, the majority of people lived in structures with only two to four rooms; rooms were multi-purpose. For only the wealthiest people, dining rooms became independent rooms in houses and were used only for the serving of food. Matched sets of dishes became fashionable for the first time and table manners were some of the most important distinctions in determining gentility.
