    Hola a todos, necesito saber cómo se dice cómoda en inglés, me estoy refiriendo al mueble dentro de la habitación con cajones para guardar las cosas, contexto:

    "Las cartas están guardadas dentro de la cómoda."

    Me dijeron que drawer pero no estoy seguro, para mi eso es un buró, no una cómoda.

    Gracias de antemano

    sure thing VenusEnvy, i looked for it but did not satisfied me, sometimes translations are innacurate, and chest of drawers sounded awkard, like "where's my blue shirt? Righ there on the chest of drawers" I just wanted to know if it was commonly used, that's all.

    Perrito: Ahh, I understand. Mil perdons for jumping to conlusions. ;)

    When I google image search "comoda" I get a lot of photos that look to me like what we might call a bureau, dresser, or simply a chest.

    A bureau and a chest can be in any room, but for me a dresser is only in a bedroom.

    I hope this helps you a bit!

    Cómoda se dice "night table" en inglés. Es la mesa pequeña con cajones que se coloca al lado de la cama.

    En España, la cómoda no es la mesa pequeña que se coloca al lado de la cama; eso es la mesa o mesita de noche. La cómoda es un mueble más grande, habitualmente con cajones, para guardar ropa.

    This thread is dated, but Chest of drawers or dresser.
