The parlour was the most important room in the house in the Victorian era. This was invariably the room in which guests were entertained and for that reason was decorated with the best and most expensive furniture. Often this furniture was handmade to specification by cabinet makers such as Oetzmann & Co. They would have used dark wood such as rosewood and mahogany to create sofas, chairs, dining tables, sideboards and display cabinets. At around the same time, furniture makers began to produce catalogues of their wares from which wealthy clients could furnish their entire houses.
