I looked for night stands for months and was determined not to spend $1500 on a pair. I finally caved in and took a chance on these, which I had been reluctant to try.
Yes, there are some cons at this price point -- the drawer slides are not very nice and the back is plywood. Also, its not "made in the USA" as the Overstock Q&A claims -- it says "made in Malaysia" all over the place when you open the box.
HOWEVER -- it is absolutely gorgeous. It looks identical to those I found at more expensive furniture retailers (one of which rhymes with "boom and cord") for quadruple the price. The wood is beautiful - a much richer brown than in the picture, and the piece is very solid. I am VERY picky, and I love this night stand. Again, I don't expect perfection at this price point, so the final piece far exceeded my expectations. I have it up against a wall, so you don't notice the plywood back -- I would caution somebody not to buy this though, if they planned to put it out in the open where the back was exposed...then it wouldn't look very nice. For the typical scenario where its up against a wall and you only see the front and sides, it is really stunning.
As far as assembly goes, it wasn't bad. The first one took about an hour, and the second one took about 20 minutes. I had some trouble with the drawer slides the first time, but just did a quick online search on how to assembly drawer slides and figured it out.
I am thrilled at the money I saved and the final look!

Just got these in tonight :) put (2) together by myself in about 2 hours of TV watching. Very simple directions. I did find that the directions for the drawer tracks seemed backwards, (maybe a labeling mistake on my 2 and 3 pieces or on the print out) I looked at my kitchen drawers and adjusted them myself and now they work perfectly. I did this up front to be sure and it saved me on the back end. I think for the price quality is good. I would prefer the back piece to be solid. Color is a rich brown tobacco, very appealing. A few minor things (detailed directions just so I didn't 2nd guess myself, solid back) and I would give it 10 stars :)
We have yet to use these very much and they haven't had to survive a move yet but I have high hopes!
Would recommend. Great purchase!

Love this night stand. Was not to hard to put together. You just need to be real sure when you put on the brackets for the drawer. The drawing does not really look like the bracket, so I ended up putting the first one on backwards. Other than that, a great nightstand. Looks like I spent more money and the legs give it a great look that many other ones I seen looked so cheap.

We were nervous buying an entire bedroom set online but Overstock has never let us down before. This bed and coordinating pieces are exactly what we were looking for. I'd never heard of rubberwood before so was a little skeptical but it is a solid piece. The nightstand looks sleek and modern. The color is very rich and matches todays decor style. I only wish there were more storage but I knew that before ordering.
The boxes were damaged when delivered but items were packed well and arrived fast and in perfect condition.
My 10 year old and I put the piece together ourselves. Fun project.
We are thrilled with the price and quality. Highly recommended and no complaints at all.

I bought an entire bedroom set of the Vilas line (king bed, 2 night stands, chest, and dresser) and I am very satisfied with each piece. I love mid century modern style, but it is difficult to find a complete vintage bedroom set and almost impossible to find one in king size. After searching through both legitimate vintage pieces and reproductions, this was by far the best value around. The quality of the wood is outstanding on the visible sides of the pieces. But, like with almost all pieces made today, the back is a thin piece of plywood. Nice plywood, but it isn't fit to have show; you have to have the pieces against a wall. The knobs are actually quite cute (you can't really see them in the photos). I'm planning on painting them brass to go more mid century.
The ASSEMBLY. The set came in a total of 10 boxes, very heavy boxes, most of which I could not lift on my own. For all 6 pieces it took me and my husband 2 days to put everything together. At times the diagrams were hard to read, but overall the assembly is do-able on your own with a power drill/power screwdriver. The 6 drawer dresser was the hardest of the set and had over 100 pieces of hardware. After the pieces were assembled they were very heavy (due to the quality of the wood), so make sure you assemble them in the room where they'll be staying.
With these pieces you have high quality at a good price, but you're getting that value because of the considerable amount of assembly required. Take some time and after you've put them together, it's a very lovely and solid collection. I only wish it came in different wood finishes.

Love these nightstands! I ordered these to go with the Alsa King Platform Bed (The Vilas headboard was taller than I wanted) and they work great! The drawers are handy and the space beneath holds a variety of items. Great little tables, and pretty easy to put together.
I recently purchased and assembled two of these for our master bedroom. I can't speak to its quality after years of use or a move, but I wanted to share some initial thoughts. First, I've seen tons of reviews that indicate this is the same quality/look as those costing twice as much at more upscale furniture and home stores. It's not. I was close to spending $499 each for a similar looking nightstand from one of these stores, but settled for this based on budget. There is no contest that the more expensive one was much nicer and more sturdy. However, I'm not being negative. For the money, I am really happy with the look and feel of this piece. It's sturdy, decent heft. It blows anything else in the under $225 per piece price range out of the water. And the style is great. Everything else in this price point is cheap looking, cheap feeling or very simple in style (even that famous Swedish superstore located in key markets). So I'm VERY happy with my purchase. Just wanted to set expectations. I feel like I got more than I paid for in quality in style, but these nightstands, side by side, would not be confused with a $500 piece. I mention that as I feel some of the negative reviews are making that comparison and it's not fair, and the positive reviews are making that comparison and it's not accurate. The nightstands are right in the middle, quality-wise, and the price was GREAT.
Customer service and shipping were excellent. Product was delivered in good shape, very well packed. Delivered three days earlier than noted with clear communication of the process/tracking.
The piece itself is exactly as presented on the website. Maybe a bit smaller than expected, and the color is maybe a bit darker (which is actually nicer- it really does look better in person).
Assembly was a breeze. I do a lot of research before committing to purchase and read all of the reviews. Obviously, different folks have different expectations and a different tolerance and ability to put this type of stuff together, so I take that into consideration. I noticed that too many negative reviews to discount mentioned the assembly as being impossible, cheap hardware, screw holes not accurate, bad instructions, etc. I didn't notice any of that. They may have changed the manufacturing/hardware, thought, as most of these reviews were a couple of years ago. The only challenge, if you can call it that, is the drawer runners, as the picture in the instructions is too small to really see it (they show it in situation, and separately as an image and text stating which way it should go, but it's not CRYSTAL clear). However, overall, product is labelled much clearer than that Swedish superstore's furniture and if you've put those together with some regularity (or any of the big box chain stores' furniture), you should have no problem. Lay out all of the parts, read the instructions through and you should be fine.
I had been looking for matching nightstands to match my walnut MCM dresser for awhile. It was very difficult trying to find something with the same look at an affordable price. I would describe the color between walnut and expresso, it blends in well especially since its on the opposite side of the room from my dresser. The nightstand is glued up pieces of wood versus a solid piece on the top, sides, and drawer front. Also the drawer base and sides are veneered MDF. Overall it was very easy to assemble myself and a great addition to my bedroom.
I ordered this nightstand because I love how it looks, and it's WAY cheaper than nightstands of a similar look from designer stores. Although I do LOVE the way it looks (it's absolutely perfect) I am disappointed in the quality. In the initial shipment, one of the main pieces of wood was broken (splintered near one of the screw holes, so it wouldn't have stayed together). I will say that customer service was EXCELLENT, and they quickly shipped me a replacement part at no charge. Unfortunately, the replacement piece was even MORE splintered. I am sure they will be happy to send me a new one, but I'm sick of waiting so I just assembled it last night using one of the semi-broken pieces. It took a few hours to put the whole thing together, but the instructions were pretty clear. I was very gentle with it (VERY gentle) yet still the wood splintered in 3 or 4 places as I gently screwed it together (disappointing) and the top surface scratched VERY easily. Once it is assembled, it does feel quite sturdy, thankfully.
Overall, I still love it, but for the quality it should really be more like ***. I wish I would have searched longer to see if I could find one of actual good quality for maybe more like *** at a designer store. I will still love it and enjoy it because it is perfect.
I definitely would NOT purchase the Vilas dresser based on this experience. The material is just a poor quality. It's not worth it.
Hello onlineshopper999, this is solid wood and the back is ply wood. Have a great day! overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 18, 2014
This is rubberwood and is solid. The drawer bottom is thin "balsa" type wood as is the nightstand back.foxydoc on Jul 22, 2014
Interesting - @overstockcustomercare1 can you confirm that what @foxydoc says is true that it is not plywood on back?onlineshopper999 on Jul 22, 2014
