Given that there is no article used in Latin and it is impossible to distinguish between 'a' and 'the' the translation if ' in triclinio' should be accepted. It is the more probable since most homes ( Pliny' apart!) would have one dining room so 'the' her makes most sense.

who would ever say they are in "a dining room" like they just woke up confused and discovered they were in "a dining room" of sorts

Why is "there are.." wrong
