bedroom tallboy

Still in the house, today’s word is tallboy. Now, it is not at all easy to imagine what a tallboy might be, and you might be surprised to discover that it is a piece of furniture, normally found in a bedroom. Tallboys usually comprise several drawers, and sometimes a cupboard, in a standalone piece of furniture, and are intended to hold smaller pieces of clothing, such as underwear, socks and ties etc. Tallboys have been largely superceded by fitted bedroom wardrobes.
