We looked in many furniture stores before deciding to purchase this bedroom set. We wanted something that was solid wood instead of veneer and not overly priced. We're very pleased with the overall quality of the bedroom set. It seems to be great value for the money--solid wood, well made, and attractive. The dressers aren't large, but that suits our bedroom well. The drawers are fairly roomy, unlike some dressers we looked at. It was easy to assemble--the night stand and dressers just needed the knobs and feet attached and the bed frame wasn't too complicated. We paid a little extra for white glove delivery, so all of the pieces were taken from their boxes and delivered to our room. Attaching the mirror was the most complicated part of setting it up. When the furniture was delivered, one box that held the side rails for the bed was damaged and one piece was scratched. Overstock dealt promptly with the problem, offering us a partial refund or replacement of the piece. The set only comes with one night stand. We found one elsewhere, but I much prefer dealing with Overstock. We had a very bad experience with the other company.

Product Review My husband and I were very satisfied with the furniture when it arrived. The Piston 5-piece Black Bedroom set is elegant and eye-catching. Adding the set to our home made the overall feel of the home seem more spacious and supreme. We often get compliments when our company sees it for the first time. The set is crafted quite beautifully. I love the color. It suits our family; however, something to consider about the darker furniture is that it catches noticeable dust faster. (Personally, this wouldn't sway me away from purchasing the product.) The furniture has a unique design on the top drawers, as well as, on the top of the headboard. This is what made me initially fall in love with the set, and it is only more beautiful in person. Something I was weary about before purchasing this product is that the bed seems to stand quite tall above the foot board of the bed in the picture. We were able to fit a low-profile box spring perfectly. A high-profile box spring would likely look silly with this set. (An alternative. if you do love this set and already have a high-profile box spring would be to not attach the side rails and foot board and just place the headboard behind the bed. We actually did this for awhile before we had the opportunity to complete the set, and I liked it so much that I am still considering going back to that look and just doing away with the foot board. Our main reason for using it now is for the storage that the raised bed provides beneath.) I love that the set is tall. The "feet" of the furniture take second place in my favorites list. Love them!! I would surely recommend this set to family and friends! Delivery We did experience some very frustrating problems with the delivery that have now been completely resolved and amended for by Overstock. The first time our furniture arrived it was damaged. The boxes were in perfect condition, but the furniture pieces were damaged suggesting that it had been packaged damaged. The dresser and nightstand and headboard were in perfect condition (which explains why I had the headboard only for awhile). However, the chest was damaged in two corners, the bottom drawer was broker and missing screws, there was a very noticeable nick and splinted wood on the front of the chest, and one of the wooden pieces between the draws was broken so that it would slip down when the drawer was opened. It was in bad shape and unacceptable. Along with that damage, one of the supporting boards on the bed seemed to have broken off, and it was "fixed" apparently by a carpenter, but not completely. The piece was wobbly, and likely would not support the bed if we continued with the set up. A patched up furniture set and broken pieces was not what we ordered, and I was very frustrated. I contacted Overstock about the broken pieces, and after I submitted pictures of the broken pieces, they issued a full-replacement of the broken parts. Unfortunately, this took a ton of tugging and pulling on my end to get the issue resolved. I spent many hours on the phone with Overstock on hold and with them telling me to wait for the issue to be resolved. Fifty days after I purchased the original product, my bedroom set was FINALLY delivered in complete. I was very irate with Overstock for making me do most of the effort to get my replacement product when the whole thing was their issue in the first place. The manager was understanding and issued me a 200$ refund, which made me feel better. Also, they let me keep the damaged chest. We still have not had the chance to fix it, but having two chests makes amends as well. Even through all the frustrating ordeal, I feel that I was treated very professionally by Overstock when they learned of my frustrations and finally took action. I only hope this does not happen to you. Needless to say, It was all worth it. Also, I was not impressed with the first delivery company. Overstock hires different companies to deliver over-sized items for them. I will never order another product from overstock unless they let me use Cevalogistics. They delivered my second set. Their company is punctual, polite, and professional; the first was a nightmare, I believe it was United something... Thanks for reading my review and good luck!!
Easy to assmble, great condition. Aired out the drawers for a few days since they had that "new/varnish/etc" smell, which has since gone away. Apart from a few small nicks on the bed frame and dresser, the condition was excellent. I filled these in with permanent marker.
The condition of the furniture when I received it was terrible. All the boxes were damaged. The dresser and headboard both sustained damage and needed to be replaced. The furniture itself is very nice for the price but the shipping method/ shipper Overstock uses needs to be replace. Very disappointing to spend that kind of money and it comes in the condition it did.
We purchased this bedroom set after moving into a new house. After shopping around this set had the most attractive design and best price for a solid wood set. The boxes weigh quite a bit and two guys were needed to carry most of the pieces to the second floor of our house. There were only a few knobs and legs to screw in on nearly all of the pieces. The bed frame required assembly and took us about a half hour. There are some minor imperfections with the finish if you look closely but nothing that I feel detracted from the value. We chose not to use the mirror and instead have a 32" LCD TV on the bureau which is at the perfect height while laying in bed. We've had the set for 7 months now with no major complaints. My only qualms are that the bed frame creaks somewhat and one drawer of the chest slides out too easily (we opted not to mount the chest to the wall so this may be contributing). Overall, I'm very pleased with the set and highly recommend it for the value.
I bought a bedroom set that came with a bed, side table, a chest and a dresser. I find all items okay except for the bed. The bed is not properly designed. There is no easy way to put a mattress on top of the bed. The side-piece, that holds the wooden bars to place mattress on top of it, broke while i was sleeping and i am living in a different bedroom since then. My bed is unusable at the moment and i can't think of an easy way to fix it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color matched with the website.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. As for the quality, the products are of mediocre quality. The side-piece that holds the bars to keep mattress on top broke while i was sleeping and i fell to the ground. Luckily i have a bed in the guestroom for me to sleep on.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? It was quite accurate. However, I would have liked to see more pictures that showed what is underneath the mattress showing the bed-frame.
Love the furniture. It looks great and will serve as a child's bedroom furniture but nice enough to use for guests - win-win! Would definitely purchase it again. Paid a small fee for the white glove delivery as it had to go up two flights of stairs. My only complaint is that rather than take the four weeks as expected, I received it in a week or less.....it was super fast!

Got my furniture the head board had a split it the back so the wood was showing on that (luckily it was in the back). The dresser had a huge gouge taken out of it.(wood exposed and looked like it got wet before packaging because it was swollen) the mirror has a huge scratch in it. My nightstand and chest looked perfect except for when i opened the bottom drawer on the night stand. The track was not even on the nightstand and all the screws were down in the drawer. Well after having my dad spray paint all the bad stuff on this furniture black so they would not show wood he fixed my drawer as well... Then my 115lb body went to sleep on my bed the first not apparently was to heavy for it because the side rail snapped!!! Of course dad to the rescue again he had to rebuild the frame to what it actually should have been. If your buying this bed please note u will have alot of hassle to deal with!! It defiantly was not worth the money!!! Its cheap and its like whoever constructed it and shipped it (1guy showed up for delivery mind u for all that furniture) didnt care about the customer!!!

I was kind of skeptical before placing the order. Not sure if the look and finish would be same as in pictures. However it turned out to be similar to the picture. Only regret is not to request for a white glove delivery. I live in a 4 floor apt and had to help the delivery personal with moving the package to my apt. Other than that worth the money.

I chose this set for two reasons. One, I was looking for a black bedroom set and they are hard to find. Two, the reputation of Ethan Allen. Unfortunately I was quite disaapointed in the quality. I expected the pieces to be finished much better then they are. I will say all are solid wood. The dresser mirror in particular came slightly damaged and so I asked for a replacement. Unfortunately the replacement came shattered. I ended up keeping the original mirror and Overstock gave me a credit for the damage and inconvenience. This is by no means a reflection on Overstock as they did all they could to rectify the problem. It is merely to say that Ethan Allen's quality has most certainly gone downhill. All in all if you are looking for a black bedroom set in solid wood this fits the bill but be prepared for imperfections.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Dark Black as listed.

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description is very accurate.
After less than a month of physically owning the bed, the supports on one of the top corners of the bed gave out. It literally ripped the screws from the wood. I'm giving the product a second chance to see if the replacement rail will be better constructed because I don't want to have to return the rest of the set but I imagine I will go through with returning it all if this happens again.
