I ordered two of these dressers, and I just put one of them together. It took me about 6 hours to assemble, but I was working by myself. For the most part, the directions were intuitive and they even threw in a few extra screws/dowels/etc. for good measure. Each dresser came in three large boxes weighing about 50-60 lbs each. They were packed very well--not a nick or scratch on any of the pieces as I inspected them right out of the box. You really need to pre-drill some tiny holes in the drawers before attaching the rails with the screws, otherwise you risk splitting the wood (everything else came pre-drilled). When all is said and done, I think it's worth it to save a few hundred dollars to assemble the furniture yourself. I would put this furniture quality on par with xxxxxx or some other shops like xxxxxxx, etc.

This is a great value for the money - with one caveat - it's extremely labor intensive to put together. There were so many pieces. Fortunately they were labeled, but it still took over three hours to assemble. All the drawer slides had to be installed as well as everything else being assembled. However, it was well worth the time and money. It's a quality piece of furniture. I couldn't find anything in a store for double the price that came close to the quality.

The dresser takes a while to put together. I would recommend using an electric screwdriver if possible because my hands/fingers are a bit sore/blistered from the assembly. Overall the dresser is a nice size. Tall, roomy but not too bulky. The directions are pretty straightforward, and all the necessary pieces were included. I bought this to go with a simple platform bed (not of the same set) but the wood colors seem to match and I'm relieved that I can fit a lot of clothes into this dresser and unclutter my closet! Probably the best dresser I've owned in terms of appearance and space. Plus the price is a lot better than other dressers I've shopped for online.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes

I did get this on sale, but even at the regular price I think this item is a great value. The pieces are nicely made and the wood is solid. Drawers fit and glide nicely, and seem to be able to hold a decent amount of weight. The color is just as pictured on the site.
As other reviewers have noted, it is an extensive assembly. I have a decent amount of experience assembling this type of furniture, and I am very handy. I bought two- the first one took me 4 hours, the second one took 3. As long as you take care to double check you haven't missed one of the very numerous steps it is straight forward, and the instructions and hardware kit are complete. Once assembled properly it feels quite sturdy and solid. I do highly recommend a power screwdriver, as there are a bazillion screws and cam locks. I also had to employ a hand held sledge with a towel wrapped piece of scrap wood to protect the furniture from the hammer, as getting the pieces to fully squeeze together required this extra power.
I would recommend this to anyone desiring a mid-grade quality piece of furniture. It is a massive step up from the Swedish design type MDF furniture I am replacing, and for a comparable price as the lower quality stuff.

After having shopped around at the local stores for furniture I decided to take my chances on Overstock.com. So glad I did! Most furniture we found was 2-3 times the price of this furniture line (wavelength) AND was very cheaply constructed. We purchased two night stands, the dresser and the chest. It took my husband and I ALL day to put everything together but with what we saved and the quality of the furniture it was a day well spent!
The furniture is SOLID. No flimsy drawer bottoms or backings! There are ALOT of pieces and you need to be good at reading directions but everything fits together well. You MUST use an electric drill. If you screw everything in by hand you will probably get carpal tunnels syndrome AND take 3 weeks to put everything together. Our recommendation is to divide up all your parts and then start with the drawers. We had a little system going when I did what I could with popping in the metal screws and using a rubber mallet on the wooden pegs; then my husband used the screw driver to tighten the screws and lock down the tracks. This worked really well!
Make sure you pay attention to details. Thank goodness we made the mistake in the beginning on a nightstand. There IS a right and wrong side for some of the wooden dividers that go on the front of the furniture. After putting together a night stand we noticed we used the almost black side of the wood for one piece instead of the brown side. It's hard to tell until you line the pieces up side by side but then you see the difference. BE DETAIL ORIENTED!
The only con we found with this furniture is on both of the large items- the chest and the dresser, there is one drawer on each that seems tighter than the rest. It's not a big deal but it will probably be an uavoidable aspect of assembling your own furniture.
All in all we are super happy with this purchase!
I crossed my fingers that the style, quality and price stars had all fallen into alignment with this furniture and bought both the 6 and 9 drawer dressers plus 2 nightstands. I was nervous to make such an important purchase online without having seen the furniture in person, but I trusted the strong reviews. We were not disappointed. We LOVE the furniture! The style is unique and everyone has loved it. The quality is very good - heavy, rubberwood (a material used in quality furniture), and well built. I found this same set elsewhere online and saved over $1000 buying it from Overstock.com. It took 3 of us about 5 hours to build the 4 pieces of furniture. There are a lot of pieces but once you get the first piece of furniture constructed, they all go together the same way. The instructions were good and they include plenty of extra pieces of the screws, etc. We started assembly with the nightstand and would suggest that to everyone. We weren't home when the 8 heavy boxes were delivered. Good thing we own a hand truck or it would have been hard to transport everything where we needed to put it.
Chest came undamaged in 3 large boxes. Putting the chest together was straight forward. Installing the drawer slides, not so much. Orientation of the chest drawer slides is unclear in figure 2. The orientation of the slides is better shown in figure 3. The open side at the end of the slide should be oriented upward to allow the drawer to be inserted from above. Figure 11 is more confusing, the drawer slide attachment is shown as is it should be attached to the bottom of the drawer and extend downward. The drawer slide angle in fact covers the bottom of the drawer side and the wheel flange extends along the side of the drawer. Once you have this right, the drawers fit perfectly. The 6 drawer chest is well made, however you are working with chip board and it is advisable to drill pilot holes for any screws to prevent the chip board from splitting.
I purchased the dresser the chest of drawers and two night stands, it takes a while to put together but overall it was more than i expected it to be. I love the look and color, I would recommended this to anyone!
The reason this bureau is rated good rather than excellent is because it is very time consuming to assemble. We ordered two of them. The first one took two almost full days to assemble; the second, a day and a half.
We had a problem because one of the drawer pulls was defective, but Overstock.com was able to have a replacement shipped to us at no additional cost.
Once assembled with functioning hardware, they are quite lovely, and look and feel far more expensive than their cost.
They replaced a large antique bureau, and their slender lines make our bedroom look larger without any apparent loss of storage space.
