We bought this dresser to use as a dresser/changing table for our nursery. Love the clean lines and slight mid-century modern look. Setup did take an hour or two, but wasn't complicated for my (non-handy) husband and me. I noticed a slight chemical smell when unpacking the pieces, but haven't noticed anything since. I can't believe how nice-looking and sturdy it is, especially because it's a fraction of the price of other similar dressers. Definitely recommend. Oh, and we also have the matching Vilas King bed in our bedroom, which we have had for the past 2 years and it still looks amazing!
Not the easiest dresser to put together - I actually had to drill some extra holes for the drawer tracks. But I'm pretty handy, so it wasn't too big of a deal - but if you're not handy, then good luck! Overall though, it's such a pretty dresser!! The color is perfect - not too red; a true brown. Nice size. And so on.
The dresser is indeed gorgeous, the wood is high quality and the finish is beautiful. However, it is VERY difficult to put together and the instructions are totally asinine. The pre-drilled holes are completely insufficient, you will have to deepen them with a special screwdriver/pick. Also the instructions are not clear as to how to orient the drawer brackets (directions say to make sure the wheels face the front of the drawer but NOT whether or not the wheel should be oriented up or down). Because of this i had to almost completely re-assemble the entire unit after i had almost finished assembling it. I would definitely not recommend this product to someone with only moderate experience in putting furniture together. If you know a handyman or contractor, you're better off hiring them to put it together for you.
this is a nice looking and large dresser. we had an experienced handyman assemble it for us -- we bought two units to match. however, nearly immediately the drawer rollers/tracks began to fail, and some of the drawer facings separated from the drawer sides. we'll probably donate this to charity rather than change out all the parts. very disappointing product quality.
I love this dresser! Some work to put all the pieces together, but once it was completed it looks beautiful! I am extremely pleased with this purchase. As an FYI i think it took about 6 hours for me to assemble. Instructions were clear.
Overall, this piece was a very good buy for the money. I had looked at similar styles on other websites for twice the price. The first shipment did arrive with several of the pieces damaged, which we were bummed about. It was honestly a real drawback and I thought it would deter me from liking the furniture. However, the Overstock team did an amazing job at getting the problem corrected! With just one phone call, they sent me the replacement pieces within a few days and kept me informed about the process the entire way through. The instructions were easy to follow, although it did take 3-4 hours to assemble it. My fiancé and I are very happy with the piece. It is beautiful and timeless, the color very rich and pretty. I would definitely recommend this product.
Dresser came in a million pieces took over2 hrs to assemble. Dresser drawers did not function properly when completed. Very frustrating, a waste of our time. This is the first time we ordered furniture on line and it will definitely be the last time we order from Overstock.com. We are now left with a bed frame that does not match the dresser. Highly unsatisfied customer!!
I was very hesitant to buy this due to all the negative reviews. I was mostly worried about it coming with the wrong parts. I debated buying it for at least 6 months. However I couldn't find another simple dresser with cone legs so I finally decided to give it a try and I am very happy I did! It arrived 2 days after I ordered it! It came in 3 boxes and had all the pieces. The instructions were very easy and understandable. I really do not know why people say they are useless because out of all the furniture I've put together (about 7 pieces) these were the easiest instructions to understand of all. I used a manual screw driver since I did not have an electric one and it took me about 5 hours to put together. With a electric screw driver it probably would have taken about one third the time. For the people who say the drawers do not shut it is because they have not screwed the screws holding the track rails flat. I had the problem at first but I just screwed the screws flat and now they slide perfectly. Also the drawers are not interchangeable. Three have to go on the left and three have to go on the right. They don't fit the other way around so that could have been their problem too. As for the people saying the drawer fronts are coming off I have no idea how that is even possible. I have not had that problem at all. The only thing I did not like about this is that the leg in the middle is not tapered like in the picture. It is just a block of wood and is unfinished but it only shows when you are at a low angle. I've had this for a year now and it has held up perfectly. It looks like it was just bought yesterday. It is heavy but the weight is in the drawers so if you wanted to move this you'd just have to take the drawers out and it is a LOT lighter. I would recommend this. You should always remember that when looking at reviews it is the buyers with the bad experience that tend to want to share.
Nice dresser, fairly easy to assemble. I bought this dresser to go with the Vilas nightstands and the Alsa king platform bed. Everything look great together and the large dresser is great for both my husband's and my things. And the large top is great for a large flatcreen TV. It looks great in my master which is fairly large.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! I cannot believe how beautiful this piece of furniture really is. Especially for the price it is a great steal! Has mid-century design, material is real wood so this beauty has weight to it. Spray painted the knobs gold & looked even better. But I contemplated doing that because it was already perfect with the black knobs it came with.
I am impressed with the quality and design of the dresser! I even forgot how long it took to build it ( it was not me who built it haha). We are very happy with it! It is outstanding contemporary furniture. I put on top of it to decorate a big mirror and my room look like a 5 stars hotel room. Thanks overstock.com you guys are the best!!!!!
The end result of the product is very beautiful, and good quality. I purchased many product from overstock and I am always satisfied. However, this dresser was very hard to put together ,very time consuming, and frustrating. The drawers were getting stuck on the racks . so please make sure all screws are down flat.
We read the product reviews and saw that most people were unable to put the dresser together in a normal amount of time. We ordered it anyways. It came in three boxes and was a nightmare ! Luckily we have a very handy friend-he put the dresser together beautifully, and by himself, in under two hours. It looks amazing and the drawers work smoothly. But I wouldn't recommend this to the less-handy folk, it's probably not worth the frustration and you can find an assembled piece for a similar price.
My fiancée and I bought this dresser for our master bedroom. We are pretty good with tools, so we didn't have many issues with putting it together. It took a couple of hours, but definitely do-able. The finished look is stunning, and the quality is quite good for the bargain price. I definitely recommend this dresser!
As other people have said, this took hours to put together. I even got a blister on my hand from screwing in so many screws. The chemical smell is also pretty bad. I put it together four days ago and I still haven't moved my clothes into it lest they absorb the smell. Now I have some dryer sheets in the drawers to try to speed up the off-gassing process. I hope they help as the dresser looks beautiful and I can't wait to use it!
