Edwardian Conservatories are so called because they first appeared in England during the Edwardian period. During the Edwardian period it became fashionable for architects to design buildings that were a far cry from the usual box design & began to design and build architects grew bored of designing the same old buildings, and began to design and build more flamboyant and decorative styled buildings which featrued the usual, rectangular build styles with some more decorative features. Back when Edwardian conservatories were first built, they were designed as rooms for keeping plants, the full glass roof and sides of the Edwardian design meant plants receive the maximum amount of sunlight possible. Of course these days Edwardian conservatories are still a popular design choice, however they are used more for entertaining guests and chilling out in than growing plants, although you can still grow plants in them.
