I bought this 6-drawer dresser one month ago, and I was very pleased with the assembly, delivery, and appearance...BUT...the inside of the drawers have stained all of my clothes! I had white and light colored clothing in the drawers for only this short time, and I noticed a couple of days ago that there is yellow stain from the bottom and sides of drawers rubbing off on all of my clothes! I have to wash all of my clothing now, and just hope that the furniture stain comes out...if not, then I guess this dresser was not worth the sacrifice of my entire wardrobe.Please be warned to use drawer liners before putting anything into these drawers!!!! Please do not make the same mistake that I did! If you are not willing to line the entire set of drawers (sides and bottom) then I would not recommend this dresser for you. I can only assume that the whole set of this Aristo furniture would be the same way.
My girlfriend and I saw this set of furniture on Overstock at separate times, independent of each other. When I sent her the link to ask her opinion she had already seen it and was already thinking of buying. I took the plunge first ordering the 6-drawer chest, 5 drawer lingerie and a nightstand (limited room for two night stands). The reviews were all very good so I was pretty confident that I would like it when it arrived. i was not disappointed. The items came in a total of 5 boxes, about a week after I ordered them. I knew I did good when I saw how heavy the boxes were. I opened the first box (the nightstand) and was impressed with what I saw. The pieces were very well packed to minimize movement, and individually wrapped in soft foam to protect the finishes. The finish and feel was fantastic, having a nice dark, warm tone to it. My girlfriend and I put it together, and the first thing I wanna say is powertools ;-). With all the screws using a drill or power screwdriver will make things go much faster, unless of course you want your wrist/arm to get a work out. The instructions were pretty clear , and once we had all the parts laid out it was simple to follow. Didn't run into any problems with screw holes not matching, as everything fit together well. As someone who has put together my fair share of furniture I was pretty impressed with that. It did take us close to three hours to put together, but thats cause we were taking our time (and did make one mistake). Once we had it put together we were both impressed with the finished product. Very stable and solid feeling, with good weight behind it. We were both very happy with the look, and were looking forward to assembling the other two pieces. Those two went faster (about 2 hours each) since we already had some practice in with the nightstand. Same good quality as the first piece, and they look great. In these larger pieces we noticed some areas where edges didn't quite line up or fit exactly, but very minor and hard to notice unless you know its there. One of the drawer fronts had a small scratch, but Overstock is already working on sending the replacement, so it all good.
So, to conclude, we both like the set very much, to the point that she has ordered 4 pieces for her place and I ordered another night stand and 4 drawer chest. It's great quality and you can't go wrong with the price. Don't be put off with the assembly - once you put together one piece you'll the other pieces will go much faster, as the layout and technique is the same for all.
A couple of items to note for assembly:
1) use power tools if available,
2) layout and organize the pieces (there will be lots of them),
3) checkout the position and layout of the drawer rails (that was our first mistake)
4) easy with the screws, as the heads do strip, especially if using a power tool.

Bought this chest, the 4 drawer dresser and the night stand after looking around town for something less expensive. My concern was putting it together after reading the other reviews. It took a couple of hours each for the two big pieces. It was simple if you follow the instructions. I love it!. I painted my walls a deep tangerine and this furniture looks wonderful in the room.Heavy REAL WOOD. All the drilled holes were percise making all the drawers line up perfectly. I wish I had room for another piece. With the shipping price as low as it was, it was well worth putting it together. I sit back looking at it all and can hardly believe I did it myself! I will take the tips about lining the drawers. Thanks!

Great piece of furniture. Came in 2 large boxes. Instructions were easy to follow, yet could have been more clear in a few areas. However, if you take your time, this piece is easy to put together. I did it by myself and it took about 3.5 to 4 hours. Well worth it. It's sturdy and looks great. Everything fit together perfectly. The drawers are all lined up well, etc. Sometimes this doesn't occur with mailed furniture that requires home assembly. I would definitely recommend this dresser, especially at this price point. Great value. It really looks great.
This chest of drawers is heavy after it is put together. All pieces were there and no damaged pieces.
I chose it because of the space under the top to put a dvd player. Just under the flat screen tv on the wall right over the chest. I also ordered the matching night stands that are a great size to fit in a smaller room with a king bed.
If you have the time to put it together it's great. I have the end tables as well. But putting this thing together is not easy. It took me a day. But after it was done it looks great! You definitely need a partner to help. Two heads are better than one. The wood is very pretty and heavy.
I really love the look. and the shelve at the top is great for charging iPhone or iPad at night.
Assembly of this chest takes on A LOT of work. The chest comes in 2 boxes weighting approximately 85 Lbs each. There are over 100 pieces of various components that require assembly. I have assemble many furnitures before and this assembly requires 2 people and about 5 hours to complete. If you are not good with putting 100+ pieces of components together, this may not be ideal for you. The instruction manual is a bit faulty too, if you follow it precisely as the picture exhibit on the instruction, it will be wrong.
This chest of drawers is beautiful. The main reason I bought this was so my DVD player and TiVo could sit below the tv in that cubby shelf area. The picture makes it appears more black than what it is. I was looking for black but when it came I was surprised how brown it is. It's more of a dark brown but still brown none the less. But it's a beautiful brown and I'm so happy with it. The biggest concern that I haven't seen addressed in the reviews that I think people should know that all the holes for the screws com pre-drilled except for the ones when you attached the drawer brackets to the shelves. If you have a drill it's an easy fix but if you don't the wood will split. But I'm very happy with this piece. I love it.
Who is the manufacturer and what is the number. I can't find it anywhere and one of the pieces has holes that are mal-aligned.amberart on Apr 7, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

How do the drawer bottoms attach? Do they just slip into grooves in the sides or do they have any support pieces underneath them? I'm concerned that with jeans & other heavy items the drawer bottoms will fall out after a year or so, as I've had happen with other dressers.khalifasmama on Jan 20, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
There are glides on the sides that each drawer fits into.Under the bottom drawer is a piece of wood. This is one of the best constructed dressers I have seen anywhere. Everything is made of wood not particle board. Jeans, blankets, shoes can all be stored easily. An excellent product. I bought the entire set.salsasue123 on Jan 25, 2014
We have had this unit for about 2 years now. We have had no problem with the bottom falling out at all. I have all kinds of clothing stored in the unit. I keep the drawers full, but I do not overstuff them or have to push down to close the drawer. They are just full and I can close the drawers easily. We love this piece of furniture. I just changed the pulls that came with it to match the other furniture I have in the room. But we have been very pleased with it.msjoanne on Feb 12, 2014
Are the bottom of the drawers solid wood or that flimsy cardboard-ish material?emily6109 on Dec 27, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Neither. It's not solid wood, but a sturdy particle board that is stained the same color as the rest of the piece. I've had this dresser for 5 years and I'm still thrilled with it.gina1974 on Dec 28, 2013
Not wood and not cardboard-ish material. Installed like cardboard-ish material but sturdier. My only complaint on the dresser is the square nobs always have to be adjusted so they are straight.blondelf on Dec 29, 2013
Hello emily6109, reviewers have noted that the drawer bottoms are particle board. I hope this helps you!overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 30, 2013

Directions where included in the furniture. I am not aware of online assembly directions.lorrainelongisland on Jun 17, 2013
Thank you for contacting us, you will be contacted by Customer Care. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 17, 2013
They should have been supplied with the hardware, but the company customer service can hook you up with them I would think. Take ur time and if you are smart you won't need them.assembyman on Jun 19, 2013
Yes. There are roller tracks on the sides of the drawers. I've had this piece for about 4 years and have had no problems, even in the drawers that hold heavier items.captastic on Apr 27, 2013
Yes, they are. I really live this piece and selected it because it is tall enough to put a TV on to watch from bed. The space between the drawers and the top is perfect for the cable box and DVR.irascibella on Apr 29, 2013
Yes, but even if they weren't you can buy the roller top and bottom plates for $4 or $5 a draw. The holes for mounting them are pre drilled so you can see where they go. Put a screw in the rear if the drawers don't stop in the right place.assembyman on Jun 19, 2013
I understand that your measurements are approximate, but... if the INSIDE of the drawers measure 19", then why does the product description say that the total depth of this item is 19.69"? Thank youruotsi on Mar 11, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The insides of the big drawers measure 17" X 30". The exterior of the chest is 19.75" deep, 35.6" wide, and 46.6" tall. The insides of the two upper small drawers measure 17" deep and 13" wide.ltayl41 on Mar 19, 2013
Thank you!!!!! I have called overstock.com, spoken to their Live Chat reps, and posted the question twice, but nobody from overstock.com gave me the answer that I needed. (One rep even told me, "oh, just buy it!"). This chest would replace a dresser that I bought just a year ago that has not-so-deep drawers, and I wanted to be sure that I wasn't buying a new one with the same shallow drawers. Thank you so much :)ruotsi on Mar 19, 2013
