Parlor

a word in English usage meaning the common room of the family, and hence probably in Authorized Version denoting the king's audience-chamber, so used in reference to Eglon. (Judges 3:20-25)

Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (n.) A room for business or social conversation; for the reception of guests.

2. (n.) The apartment in a monastery or nunnery where the inmates are permitted to meet and converse with each other, or with visitors and friends from without.

3. (n.) In large private houses, a sitting room for the family and for familiar guests, -- a room for less formal uses than the drawing-room. Esp., in modern times, the dining room of a house having few apartments, as a London house, where the dining parlor is usually on the ground floor.

4. (n.) Commonly, in the United States, a drawing-room, or the room where visitors are received and entertained.
