The dresser arrived within days of purchase online. The dresser came in three separate boxes and took my husband and brother a couple of hours to assemble. Don't be alarmed if some of the wood panels are scratched. If you flip it over, it is perfect and polished. The scratched imperfections, once you assemble the dresser, will actually face the inside of the dresser, never to be seen again. The dresser is made of solid wood and is very sturdy. Though the dresser is quite compact and sits low to the ground, the drawers themselves are quite roomy and housed so many of my clothes and accessories. The color of the dresser is a beautiful wenge/ espresso color. The style of the dresser is modern but because it has such clean lines, it would suit any style decor.

I love the way this dresser looks in my room. I researched dressers for a couple weeks and kept coming back to this one. I love the style, quality, and price of this piece. It looks exactly like it does in the images. The dresser is built quite sturdy with quality materials. The drawers glide smoothly, and feel like they can hold a substantial amount of stuff. The drawers are deep and the bottoms are fairly sturdy. The top and drawer fronts are made of solid wood panels while the majority of the other pieces are compressed wood, but even the compressed wood seems to be of a high quality. The compressed wood is stained to match the finish and it wasn't obvious which pieces were compressed wood with veneer and which were solid wood at first glance. The package arrived in three boxes and the largest box started to come apart in shipping. It was clearly re-taped by the shipper before delivery and the pieces were not as nicely packed as the other packages were since they had shifted around a bit. Fortunately, there were only a few minor scratches or scuffs on a few pieces. Building this was a chore. The instructions were as clear as any other furniture assembly instructions are. So, while they could be a little better, they weren't confusing and they were relatively easy to follow. There are a million and two parts to this dresser and it took me quite some time to build. Fortunately I took things slowly, took breaks, and patiently worked at it. If you don't have patience this may not be a project for you. If you have plenty of patience and can follow instructions then this is a great project. I enjoyed watching it come together as it is a beautiful piece. Just a note, make sure you check your measurements. This is a bit smaller than similar Items I've seen in person and it was the one factor that almost made me choose a different item. Now that I have it, I'm glad I got it, although the size may be a deal breaker for many.
I tried to back it down to four stars because of the finish, it's not too difficult to scratch or chip it. I am careful, but my boyfriend was not & he put a ding on the side back while we were assembling it. The overall look is beautiful and the drawers glide well if you put them in the correct spot. (Something not mentioned in the instructions.)
Dont know if this was easy to build, hired someone to put it together. But the wood is real, it's heavy, the drawers open and close seamlessly. I wish the drawers were deeper but at the same time I felt I really got quality and a great look with nice sized drawers so I can't be disappointed especially for the price. My bf and I love this dresser and glad we went to overstock to get this dresser. We'd definitely recommend to anyone looking for a dresser for their bedroom.
Love this dresser! Looks exactly as pictured and the price was unbelievable. It took about 4 hours though I did it alone in between cooking and watching TV. It is flawed and matched a platform bed I purchased years ago. It was for my sons room and it held his TV, Bose stereo and DVD player on top with plenty of storage for jeans and shirts. Once again Overstock, you are the best retailer I know.
Really love this dresser, it has a modern aesthetic that blends well with the mid-century/modern styles in my bedroom and is short enough to compliment my low bed. The color of the wood in the pictures is spot on but it was delivered with some major scratches along the sides and base. It took fairly long assembling this as there are a ton of screws to get in place but it's sturdy once properly done. Would have given it five stars were it not for the "sticky" drawers that need to be closed very particularly, almost at an angle to shut properly (I do not believe this has anything to do with putting it together as I've assembled every other piece of furniture in my house without issue). Another issue I have is the actual size of the drawers, compared to say a standard **** dresser, each drawer has almost half the space available and are very shallow. I've resorted to hanging most of my clothes and using this for smaller items like tank tops and socks.
PROS: Nicely built, solid wood, good quality overall. CONS: Hardware drawer sliders don't work very smoothly for some reason, although some have broken in after a while. One is still constantly scraping the wood and metal and needs adjustment. Still, good purchase for the price.
