At first I loved the look of this dresser. It is very sturdy and made well. PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU PURCHASE!!!! I used it for clothing and after about 5 months I noticed that all of my items on the bottom of each drawer were stained YELLOW and BROWN!! I was shocked to say the least and quite upset that I thought I was getting a beautiful dresser only to realize it is useless since I cannot store clothing in it. I tried to wash out the items but the stains remained. I now see that several other people have reviewed this same issue with this entire line. If you are planning to use this for items OTHER THAN CLOTHING then this would be a nice peice but beware of the Staining issue. Tears come to my eyes when I think of all the clothing that is now ruined and hundreds of dallors down the drain :(
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
I'm very disappointed in this piece. I read to make sure i was not buying particle board. which indeed it turned out to be. It was very well painted to look otherwise. It took me a little over 2 hours to put together alone. All 5 drawers split on the bottoms when following directions to screw on the drawer slides for each. which made me start looking very carefully at the material used. It was intentionally trying to be covered up.. I think i paid too much money for the cheap materials it was made from. I was looking for a piece to be around for a long time.. i dont see that happening. It is nice and it looks like the picture but when you are looking for a real material and find out it is all well painted instead it is disappointing.. It would cost to much to time and money to take apart and send back. Lesson learned to be leary of Rubberwood products being expensive well painted particle board. I thought about ordering other pieces of furniture but am very leary now. Dont want to make the same costly mistake twice... BE Ware and READ Carefully...
Let me begin by saying, I absolutely LOVE this piece. I'm glad I got it. I bought the dresser drawer, two nightstands and this lingerie chest... My ONLY regret is that I did not know that the inside of the drawers would rub off and discolor my white garments. The good thing is that the stain (like a deep lime green color) washes off in the laundry. No bleaching and extra stain-removing needed. So, I got some clear contact paper and lined the bottom of the drawers. Worked like a charm.. until, I learned that the SIDES of the drawers were also rubbing off on the whites... AMAZING..!! I haven't had the energy to go in and cover the sides, right now, I'm just keeping the white clothes in the middle of the drawer. Strangely enough, the sides DO NOT rub off on the other colors, even light colors like pink or yellow... Go Figure...So, overall, love the piece, love the entire line of Aristo furniture, just know what you're getting into and factor in lining the drawers when you assemble. Unless and until Aristo does something about the bleeding...Hope this helps....
I've put together the Aristo nightstand before, and did the 6 drawer dresser the weekend before. This is pretty straightforward with decent instructions. Just remember that the grooves on the legs of the panels indicate the backside of the dresser. Also that the fixed panel (shelf on top), the bottom holes face towards the back as well. Laying everything out to know where the pieces are makes things go a lot faster then trying to rummage through the boxes once you start. I did have trouble with one of the knobs. The screw was a bit stripped so I had to glue the knob onto the screw so it wouldn't spin. Minor issue, though, still a great value.
We ordered this as well as the matching night stand, and after reading some of the not so stellar reviews, I was a little worried. I can honestly say this is a great buy for the price paid. Very solid feeling and simply, artistically beautiful. Bought for our guest room down stairs, the color was bang on and very complimentary to the existing décor. Since we are using ORB in this room, we bought different knobs than what this comes with. Yes it comes in (2) boxes, and yes in quite a few pieces, however, as long as you follow the directions you simply will not go awry. Words of advice, take note that there are week points to the assembly. mainly the camber locks. They are for some reason a little malleable at the point where the Phillips screw driver is used to tighten it. Use caution as you may only get 1 shot at tightening them. The only other issue I noticed was that where the drawer glides install, the holes are NOT pre drilled...the instructions also inform you of this, but trust me, to prevent any possible wood splitting, align the guides on the drawer 1 at a time, and drill pilot holes using an 1/8" drill bit or slightly smaller. At this point installation is a breeze of the guides on the drawers. The guides that install on the inside of the cabinet are pre drilled and you will have no issues with them. I put this and the night stand together, by myself, in about 1 hour or so. Proving that you do not need another person, just common sense. :) Thought about issues of staining as some have complained about, and perhaps would have sealed the bottom of the drawers just to be safe, but it looks as if they may have corrected this. Not sure, time will tell. can always be done later if an issue arises, and will permanently fix the issue. Nice weight once fully assembled, so if moving into another location after assembly, move installed cabinet/chest of drawers without the drawers installed. I had ZERO issues otherwise with assembly. FTR I am retired, 40 years old, and an expert with tools. If you are buying another piece of the same group, after assembly of one, the other(s) are very easy as the process is exactly the same. Drawers glide very smooth with no binding, and all are aligned as designed/pictured on the website. Wish they made a matching sofa/console table in this collection. Hope this helps someone either decide to buy and or with assembly. Its not that bad. :)
Love this chest! It fits perfectly between my closet and bathroom. Now I have plenty of room for my underwear and bottom drawer for socks? I have other pieces made from this manufacturer and I would definitely recommend product to a friend!
While it took my husband five hours to put together (and he's handy), these tall, narrow dressers are the perfect fit for our small master bedroom. It really opened up the room and updated the room to get our traditional out.
The top shelf portion was damaged so I substituted the same piece from nightstand and ordered a new shelf for the nightstand. Overstock staff responded to my requests for assistance in a timely way and I received the replacement shelf ,free of charge, quickly. I did not have to return the damaged shelf so the interaction was very convenient for me. My client is very pleased with the design and quality of the furniture.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Good comparison
Please tell us about the quality of the product. This is solid wood and is very attractive when assembled. Drawers glide smoothly.

Is this actually made from real wood ? Product description says rubberwood which is indeed a real hardwood (http://www.oakplus.com/rubberwood.htm), but some of the reviews say particle board. Any insight would be helpful, thankssycophant234 on Jun 3, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
