Unless you are the son or daughter of Einstein and Mother Theresa, and earned a PhD in cryptography, expect to spend days on end pulling your hair out and cursing the heavens for the mess you have gotten yourself into. So difficult to put together even though I am usually decent at assembling furniture. Otherwise, beautiful dresser.

This dresser looks beautiful and really classes up our master bedroom, which was suffering from a lack of cohesion due to using two tiny cast-off mismatched dressers. The drawers are nice and wide and we can fit much more in its six drawers than we did in the 4-drawer and 3-drawer dressers (combined) we had previously. Two people assembling this together took a few hours; the frame came together in about 1.5-2 hours, and each drawer took an average of maybe 10-15 minutes, working at a relaxed pace with distractions. I would not recommend assembling this yourself as it is quite heavy and difficult to turn over. Maybe the word is just "unwieldy," although it is pretty heavy, especially compared to our previous dressers.
The product does have an "offgassing" smell for several days both in the box as well as once put assembled. I can only guess it's due to the processing or finish. I seem to remember this about a TV stand we bought from Overstock as well. The smell has dissipated a bit and we are burning candles to aide in the process.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Finish is even more interesting in person, a nice warm grey.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. This is better quality than IKEA for not too much more money, considering how large the dresser is. Followed instructions carefully and product appears sturdy.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate.
Dresser is average, finish, and color is just what I wanted. The sturdiness of the dresser after putting it together is questionable. I definitely will not be too forceful with it because I want it to last - and get my money's worth. For the price, I thought it would be a better than your basic Ikea furniture.

Looks awesome in our midcentury ranch house master bedroom. Modern yet respectful of the period. Nice heavy inverted cone cabinet pulls. This was on sale under $400 which is a great deal. I would consider it high quality for its price range. There are other color variations but we chose this "charcoal" color. Website pictures are accurate however the piece seems to pick up some color characteristics of the room depending on lighting conditions. Color is not dark. Think toffee or driftwood. Solid wood except rear backer. Some reviewers complain that it is difficult to assemble. The number of parts can appear overwhelming. However advance sorting, organization, review of the instructions prior to commencing assembly as well as using a low torque electric screwdriver would help in getting this assembled in under an hour. There was one hiccup. The top arrive damaged. However, Overstock was quick to address the issue and sent a replacement.

Great item to add to the guest room. It does come in 3 boxes which all need to be assembled. Easily done by one person. Only complaint was that one of the knobs to a drawer did not easily screw on and is a little loose.
Other than that, the item is great.
Exactly what I expected from the picture. Nice finish. Solid piece. Looks great with my darker furniture too! Wasn't too hard to put together. Came in 3 large boxes that were very heavy so be sure to be home for delivery or you'll need help picking up from UPS.
I know others have said the assembly was difficult, but if you have any basic furniture assembly experience, this will be a snap. It took 2 people 2 hours, with the aid of a power screw driver. Yes, there are 3 boxes but don't let that deter you - the end product is definitely worth it! I now have a beautiful, deep-drawered dresser that fits ALL of my clothes.
The assembly is as others said, a nightmare. I was determined to study the tiny pictures and lack of written instructions, and complete the assembly. It took hours! The top did arrive damaged, but Overstock was quick to send another. I do love the color and look. The screws on the drawer slides seem too long for the wood width and stick out causing the drawer glides to stick. I am unable to get the screws in tighter. I need to hire a handyman after all to remedy this. I also used a lot of wood glue wherever possible, which I recommend. The dresser wood parts are heavy, and the dresser is unwieldy to move. I don't mind the assembly challenge, but in hindsight, I would have been better off to buy a preassembled, working product.
