We bought the dresser and two night stands to go with our dark expresso bed frame. The set looks very good and is solid.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Darker than picture, which is what I wanted
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It is heavy and well constructed
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate description
First, this is a great value if you can catch it on sale or when Overstock offers % off coupons. It's heavy - 175#, so don't expect to drag the box upstairs on your own. I read many, many reviews about this "suite" of bedroom furniture before buying. A consistent comment I read was that the finish/color is darker than the picture. I would clarify by saying the actual finish is traditional mahogany (distinct red undertone), rather than a 'truffle' or brown undertone as shown in the photos. I should have known better based on "mahogany" in the name, but based on photos and reviews, I thought it was going to have a brown stain. If I had known it was red undertones, I would have kept looking. :( That said, its still very pretty and seems well-made, so I'm keeping it. I can't imagine what a hassle it would be to return, so, I'll just buy other pieces to compliment the red. One drawer doesn't open/close properly (appears to me the drawer is not square, so the glides don't work properly). I've contacted OS, and am hoping all the rave reviews about their customer service prove true here. There were two "mystery" pieces of wood trim in the box that neither of us (both very handy types) can figure out their purpose. :) Overall, great quality for the price and very pretty if you have an affinity for the red undertones. Drawer depths are (approx.) 7.25" deep for the bottom drawer, ~6" deep for the middle two, and 5.75" deep for the top drawer.
I ordered this dresser as I was thrilled with the 2 Shaker nightstands I ordered earlier. The dresser arrived in perfect condition. I had debated about a larger item delivery. I was very happy that this oversized shipment went so smoothly. Absolutely no problem! Love the dresser as I do the matching nightstands. Exceptional quality! Thanks Overstock
It was delivered damaged and has been sitting with the white glove shipper for one week. I have never seen it nor offered any options other than they will contact me. Overstock always handles problems very professionally. I don't know whats happened to this Dresser I've been waiting about a month now.
