rfv-sense: living room (US). I think of it as a place for informal, often male, entertaining. DCDuringTALK 19:27, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
The sense you know is the next sense listed. I don't know the tagged sense either, except to the extent "living" room means the other sense (it does include it, after all).—msh210℠ 20:13, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
I'd inserted that sense. Other dictionaries specifically refer to a den as being "secluded", consistent with the "lair" origins of the term. I think we might have to just wait to see if the RfVd sense rings a bell with anyone. Probably hard to differentiate those two senses from our usual sources. DCDuringTALK 21:30, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
In my experience, in a house with only one living room, it’s called the living room. In a larger house with two living rooms, the one used only on formal occasions is called the living room, and the one used for everyday living throughout the year is called the den (in other words, the real living room). The room known as the living room goes unused except at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and for wedding receptions, funerals, etc., so it really is not a living room at all. —Stephen 17:31, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
In such a house, the more commonly used room is also called a family room, btw.—msh210℠ 19:02, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
