The Bulgarian word for living room is 'Hol', ironically meaning 'Hall' as in a large room for assembly, meetings or entertainment in the English language. However, these typical Bulgarian cabinets located in the 'Hols' of the high-rise communist era, standard town and city apartments are in fact the grandest item in the living room and the whole apartment. Shared also with a suite of furniture. A large part of these cabinets is used for storage, another part for displaying the families' most prized possessions, another for photographs and souvenirs from around the world. The sitting areas outside are resident-made extensions of the 'Hol', where they gather in the evening as an extension of the living, meeting and entertaining space.
