So, we've all been impressed by the interior of Erebor... Can't Post

it's spectacular, and I'm under the impression none of us had imagined it to be so splendid and vast. The throne hall is breathtaking, with its vastness; the throne itself is hewn from living stone and veins of gold and...green...(what mineral *is* that?) in the stalactite-like rock above it; the areas for forging and mining are huge and unimaginably deep; the area where jewels are sorted sparkle also with veins of gold and green...you've seen it all; you know of what I speak.

But we haven't seen the living quarters.

Has anyone else wondered what the living quarters are like? Apartments? Communal rooms? Kitchens? Bedrooms? Does the Dwarves' idea of luxury include soft squooshy chairs and beds and fur rugs in front of cozy fires, or do they sit and sleep on chairs and beds of rock? Beautiful rock, probably, but rock nonetheless. Do they have windows and if so is that a desirable thing or do they prefer light from candles and torches? Do they suffer from Vitamin D deficiency? Wait, I digress...

Anyways, just wondering if anyone else has pondered these things, and what your thoughts might be.
