When deciding on a dresser style, think not only about how much space you have but also about what you will put in it and how a child will use it. It will be used much longer than the crib, so choose with an eye to the future. You may even want to buy this piece at an "adult" furniture store. You can also get an inexpensive dresser at an unfinished furniture store, then paint or stain it to match your crib or other furniture you may already have chosen. Spend a little extra on unique knobs, and you'll have a custom piece for a fraction of the price.
For a nice classy chest of drawers for adults with relatively classic tastes, go with a bold, varnished wood like cherry. Certain sets may be stacked shoulder-high with only drawers, whereas others may have several drawers coming up to waist-height or less, and a wardrobe placed on top (either all in one piece or removable, it's up to you). For a classy touch, get one with an elaborate, curvy top piece; most come with flat tops, but if it's so high up that you won't be resting anything on it, why not go for the aesthetic bonus of fine carpentry.
Think about how the dresser will function in the future. Some models are part of a set that allows you to add a hutch on top or a corner shelf unit (also called a "radius shelf"') on either side. Your child's storage needs will only grow, so plan accordingly.
