- n. a suite of furniture for the bedroom
Sorry, no etymologies found.
I was mistress of the bog-wood bedroom set -- a set wholly out of harmony with everything else I possessed, and so huge and massive that two men were required to lift the head-board alone.
Usually, cautious friends accompanied me on my auction - room expeditions and restrained my ardor; but this time I got away alone and found myself bidding at the sale of a solid bog-wood bedroom set which had been exhibited as a show-piece at the World's Fair, and was now, in the words of the auctioneer, "going for a song."
