Yeah that is what we call a dresser - that is, if the top part I can see is part of the bottom part. Its often called a Welsh dresser.

Hmmmm, a dresser over here is a piece of bedroom furniture. You store clothing in it. They often have a mirror on top of them. Not to be confused with a chest of drawers, which is taller and does not have a mirror. With couples, the woman usually has the dresser, and the man has the chest of drawers.

I have heard them called all different kinds of things in various parts of the US: hutch, dish cabinet, buffet, etc. but dressers are for clothes in the US., not dishes.

My wife took both. Hmmmm... 🤔

She has the dresser, chest of drawers, nightstand, a small hutch (yes, for dishes, but she has her stuff in it), and the walk-in closet.

I have a dresser, and a very small chest of drawers, and two regular closets. When I get dressed in the morning, I have to visit three rooms. :laugh:

I have two armoires and a walk-in closet. I keep some my delicates in a drawer of my nightstand and also in the drawers inside of my closet. I do not have any dressers or chests of drawers, though I do have a storage trunk (chest) by the window I keep blankets in.

The funny thing is, I much more clothes-focused than MrsTasty is. She'd wear a burlap sack if she could get away with it.

It would be a bit itchy.

I do wear house-dresses quite often now that I am homebound, but they aren't ugly. I am way more clothes focused than my hubby is, but since I never go anywhere, I don't wear them. Or my jewelry.

Exactly right......unless you're married to my wife. My dresser has the same as yours but I only got one drawer and a small half drawer as well. Wife says I don't need that much room. She has more need than me. Lol.
