Casegoods are items of furniture that are built with interior compartments for storage. It is an American English term for "wooden furniture designed for storage, such as cupboards, chests of drawers, etc.". A synonym is "case furniture".
The term "casegoods" is sometimes used to refer to commercial use furniture such as beds and sideboards that would be used in a hotel, dormitory or student accommodation. The same terminology would not generally be used when referring to domestic furniture.
Casegoods are one of the three classifications of furniture, the others being upholstery and occasional. Upholstery refers to furniture that has fabric or leather and padding stretched over a frame. Occasional furniture includes coffee tables, end tables, nesting tables, ottomans, and accent stools.
