I'd never ordered furniture on line, sight unseen before--but this set was a great price and had exactly the pieces we wanted. The items came quickly. Be aware that this furniture is totally unassembled, and the boxes are very heavy. My husband put the furniture together, the task would have been totally beyond me. He reported that the components were nicely packed and each arrived in perfect shape. Assembly instructions were clear and easy to follow, and all the promised hardware was there, and each screw, nut etc. had an extra piece just in case. The parts you see are solid wood-- which is attached to some particle board pieces inside. The furniture looks terrific, and compared to the furniture we had shopped in stores, this was about have the price and much better looking and better quality. Overall, we are delighted. However, the construction of the pieces is not for the faint of heart, there are many many steps and many many pieces, so be sure you are up for the task! We also had to enlist help to get some of the boxes upstairs as they are very heavy. All in all, very worth the effort!
This set was easy to put together and much better engineered than other furniture of this type I've had to assemble. Most of the hardware is hidden and even the stickers that denote the piece are in places where, once assembled, can't be seen (bonus for all of us who've had to remove visible stickers that always leave behind a sticky residue). The only downside to this collection I found was, once assemble, the night stand had a bit of a gap on one side. If I were an OCD person this would probably drive me nuts. I checked, and re-checked, to be sure I assembled the unit properly. It looks like the pieces that hold the front together were either drilled a little wrong or the master from which these are copied has warn in one direction thus leading to the gap. Other that that, there was a minor blemish on the chest that I fixed with some Old English. The packaging was good and protected the wood finishes even though the boxes had minor shipping damage. Looks great in our guest bedroom. Note: The "Wood Frame" that is pictured as attached to the headboard is NOT included with this set. I had read that note but I can see how this could be missed.
This furniture arrived quickly, was boxed thoroughly and was somewhat easy to put together. My husband and I put it together with no major problems at all. The price was wonderful compared to retail. I will order furniture again through Overstock!
