Gunda's home had two rooms and a kitchen. One of the rooms was a living room in the day and a bed room at night. It was furnished with a divan, a table, a rocking chair and a chest of drawers. The other room was the dining room, only used for special occasions. These two traits, the rearranging of the room between day and night, and the seldom used best room, were both typical for the mid-century working class way of life.
Gunda's combined living room and bedroom with plain and cheap furniture. Her divan is simply a bed of iron with a mattress and embroidered pillows. On the table the Bible she was given at Sunday school. The dining room furniture made of oak in late neo-renaissance was bought second hand at Gunda's wedding in 1924.
