    I remember my Grandma calling the couch a "devonette".
    The table in the kitchen/dining room was always called the "Dinner Table" (never Lunch/Breakfast table), but was sometimes referred to as the "Supper Table".
    I've heard chest of drawers and even a freestanding closet called a "wardrobe".
    Rainboots were called "Rubbers" or "Galoshes".
    Young troublemakers were "Hoodlums", "Hoods", "Hooligans".
