“Lowboy” is often thought of as an American term – they are in much demand there – also known as a “Vanity”. In England sometimes they are referred to as a “dressing table”. This works well with a dressing table mirror, in fact earlier versions sometimes show lowboy and dressing table mirror constructed as one unit.
