What is an apron?
No you don’t wear it. And I am not planning a post on sinks. This post is about furniture, specifically a furniture part.
APRON: A part of furniture found on chairs, tables, chests and cabinets. It is the surface placed at a right angle to the top of a chair or table connecting the top surface to the legs. Also refers to the bottom of a chest or cabinet. It can be either plain, or decorated with piercing or carving. Sometimes it is the most decorative element on an otherwise unadorned piece. It also provides structural support.
