I purchased the 9 drawer dresser, 6 drawer chest and 2 night stands. The furniture is beatiful. It is very dark-almost black. It looks sleek and modern and beautiful in the bedroom. The pieces are big, so make sure you measure before you buy. The drawer capacity if great compared to what I had before and they roll nice and easy. Assembly was not too hard, just time consuming. I think the first piece took about 3 hours, but once you get the hang of it they pretty much all go together the same way. I would definately buy this furniture again.
This is a gorgeous dresser, very solid and well-designed. But be forewarned, it comes in three large, heavy boxes of pieces, and has to be totally assembled. It took my husband and me the better part of a day to do it, but I will say that the pieces were very well designed and cut, and everything fit together beautifully. It is almost black in color and fairly large, with nice-sized drawers. It's a heavy piece of furniture. I'd recommend it to anyone with the time and facility to do a full assembly (there were over 25 different sizes of wood pieces, for example, all labelled with letters and numbers, and over 14 different types of hardware). If you don't mind building it from the ground up, you'll have a very nice piece of furniture.
I sooooo looked forward to this dresser!! It is beautiful indeed. It is as others have stated made of real solid wood (pretty heavy) and a classy, beautiful dark brown color. In fact...it matches furniture that I purchased from other very pricey retailers PERFECTLY!I had to have "one of the guys" put it together for me. It took him about 5 hours to assemble alone.BIG WATCH OUT!!! LINE THE DRAWERS!!! I have now had the dresser a few months...and I had some white shirts in the drawers and wherever they touched the drawer (bottom and on the sides)...it YELLOWED all of my white clothes. I am trying to bleach them now. Just line the drawers and you will be a very happy camper!!
Overall I am extremely pleased with this purchase and I would recommend this. Relative to furniture one must assemble, this is definitely much higher quality than most. It was easy to put together, although it does take time. I glued every dowel and joint as well as the mechanical connections and the furniture is rock solid. Other reviews are correct in the fact that you must pay attention to the finished side of the pieces of wood, some of the pieces have a less finished side which would be noticeable. I bought 2 night stands, chest, and dresser and it took me most of a Saturday to put it together by myself. The dresser was the only problematic piece in the fact that the 2 front facing horizontals between the drawers had a slight bow to it, so it would have stuck out of and looked bad. I simply countersunk screws into the vertical to align it perfectly. I took heed of the warnings in other reviews concerning discoloration of clothing from the drawers. Prior to assembling the drawers I attached clear contact paper to each drawer bottom (much easier to do it in advance so you can simply trim the edges) and have had no issues with discoloration. Not sure if it would/would not have been an issue but it most certainly was not worth the risk.
Overall the pieces look great and am happy with my purchase. If I could, I would have changed the design so that the vertical ends on each piece of furniture fit underneath the top surface of the furniture. It would have made a more refined and more expensive look. Furthermore, the 9 drawer dresser has 2 vertical legs in the middle aligned with the vertical separation of the 3 columns of drawers. While this is great for support and strength, it is a bit annoying for moving the furniture. I would prefer to have seen some stronger horizontal 2x3 type pieces spanning the distance for the same strength as well ease of movement after the fact.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was slightly darker, but I liked it better
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality
This is a great looking set - high quality and graceful. However, the number of pieces is overwhelming and the directions are quite complicated. My husband is an engineer and even he was surprised at complexity of the assembly. So if you decide to purchase it, the end result is worth the effort, but the amount of time it takes cannot be understated.

My husband and I said over and over that we couldn't believe how heavy each piece was. We bought 2 nightstands, the dresser and the chest. Make sure you register for Club O. You'll get about **** back on all this. Also, put it in your cart and leave it for a day if you can't find an extra coupon code. They will send you one to prompt you to buy. Or you can check out Retailmenot.com.
You cannot scratch the surface with your fingernail as one reviewer said, unless you are determined to do it. The quality is very high and they don't cut corners. The bottom of the drawers are made of super high quality partible board (not the kind that falls apart, warps or chips away). No problems there.
READ BEFORE ASSEMBLY: I cannot imagine doing this project without a drill. No way. Make sure your torque is low. When you are screwing on the rollers to the bottom of the drawers PRE-DRILL the holes. It is the only place they are not pre-drilled and we split the wood on the first drawer. It's worth the extra effort not to ruin it.
Before you attach the long, skinny middle boards that go between the drawers on the dresser make sure it is not warped at all. Ours is and the the drawer hits it a little when closing.
That being said, it's high quality and worth every penny. The self-assembly is TOTALLY worth not having veneers for the same price or more. I would do this all over again. Assembly is not hard; it just takes time.
Bought the dresser with two nightstands....took about 16 hours to put it all together. Missing a board for the bottom inside dresser drawer...my husband had to duplicate with a piece of plywood. Still love it. After you factor in the time of labor you could buy something at the local furniture stores for same price. However, this is better quality and style than what I saw locally in Southwest Florida.
The dresser looks very nice and expensive and it is big with enough space. A few of the draws came scratched but will quickly replace by Overstock. However, this dresser scratches easily, even your finger nails can make a scratch , so I have had the dresser up for about a month and it has 3 scratches already and I have tried to be careful. IMO it not worth the money, because it will look old in a few months.
I'd like to line the drawers before assembling it. Do you think it would be best to use contact paper or can I use fabric (thin)? I would like to do it beforehand to make it easier but I'm wondering if it overlapped the edge of the bottom board would it make it impossible to put together. I've read that the pieces fit together like a glove so there may not be space for even thin fabric to fit between pieces.
Also, do you recommend gluing the dowels etc?smcpherson05 on Nov 7, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello smcpherson05, With the Wavelength 9-drawer Dresser, if you were planning on lining the drawers I think that contact paper would work best, but overlapped the edge would make it real hard to put the drawers together, and everything else separably. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions. Thank you for shopping with us!overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 15, 2013
Are the bottoms of the drawers solid wood as well? The last dresser I purchased from Overstock has thin wood/cardboard bottoms that break/fall out.sbascom on Jun 13, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
