Where did it come from?
Imagine some old times, a worn-out trunk that was used for storing clothes. Now let’s imagine again, a furniture item that is used for a similar purpose but consists of various drawers. The drawers make the accessibility of clothes way easier.
Whereas Chester might be any manufacturer or an individual, it could be a brand name or the place where the piece of furniture first originated such as Chester, England. It could be a possibility that the shortening of the chest of drawers to a Chester created some confusion about the fact these two terms are the same and it led to this miscommunication and people think it is the same.

Also, to prevent yourself from falling into situations where you could potentially embarrass yourself by saying the wrong term it is best to have a decent amount of knowledge about the said topic/term that is going to save you. And, the knowledge about anything is always going to come in handy.
