Finding the Right lowboys for You

Tables and chests that are low in height are known as lowboys. Vintage, new and antique lowboys are versatile furniture pieces, serving as coffee and cocktail tables, end tables, chests and nightstands.

With their compact size, lowboys can be utilized in entryways, living rooms, dining rooms and studies as well as boudoirs and bathrooms.

A tallboy, on the other hand, might include a wardrobe on top of a set of drawers, while a highboy is usually a simple tall chest of drawers. (If you’re interested in vintage case pieces, we’ve got a guide for that.)

Lowboys became popular as dressing tables in the 18th century in England and America. Chippendale lowboys reflect this heritage, while other antique lowboys have vintage charm. Mid-century modern lowboys often channel the clean lines that we’ve come to associate with furniture in that style.

Lowboys are a design staple because of their adaptability to a variety of spaces. For a project in ​​Portland, Oregon, interior designer Jessica Helgerson featured a Terranova lowboy coffee table among Tudor decor, while designer Charles de Lisle’s California style regularly incorporates cocktail tables and other lowboys as part of a welcoming but sophisticated aesthetic.
