A Commode is any of several pieces of furniture.
Originally, in furniture it meant a cabinet, with one or more doors, which served as a washstand with a washbasin and water pitcher, and which also offered an enclosed area below for storing a chamberpot. A chamberpot enclosed in a commode was called a close-stool. Convenience cabinets called commodes often furnished middle-class bedrooms before the days of indoor plumbing.
commode in Spanish: Cómoda
