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.
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!!
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.
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.

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.

I almost didn't order this set because everyone talked about the assembly process. It is not nearly as bad as they made it seem. My husband and I put the dresser together in about 3 hours and saved the drawers for the next day only because we started the project late and were sleepy. The next day we built the drawers in about an hour or so. It is very intimidating when you first open the box and see all the hardware but it really isn't that bad. I love the way it looks and it's sturdy. Dark wood is always so elegant looking. It goes perfect with the plum upholstered headboard that we ordered on Overstock as well. I highly recommend this dresser.
The Wavelength 9-drawer Dresser is my second addition to the collection I am trying to complete. About one years ago I had purchased the 6-drawer and discovered the 9-drawer wavelength. Solid product, well priced and it is sturdy and solid and I have not had a single incident with it. And appears expensive and elegant and it does get used daily. I never write reviews and this had to be done. thanks
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.
I'm always game for assemble it yourself furniture. Some is good - some is bad. Some easy - some tough... This thing set a new record for difficulty and time consumption.
So for reference, I'm a licensed contractor, licensed auto mechanic, and a fire-fighter. A hands on guy.
The dresser is still in my front room, close to being done - but still so far away. It's not impossible - it's do-able. But not worth the hours it will take you to put together. Hours - and hours - and I'm using power tools.
There must be several hundred pieces. Literally. To give them credit, it's heavy, solid. In fact, when it's done I'm going to need help moving it in to position. To make matters difficult, the cam locks provided are junk. Really. I read that in other reviews that said that too - but took a chance. What a mistake.
For not that much more, I could have ordered a similar dresser from Costco - and had the Costco dresser delivered in room - like I did for my master bedroom.
Feel free to take a chance - but make sure you have 10 hours set aside for assembly - and don't over tighten anything. The hardware will break. I've been using glue on the dowels to compensate for junk hardware.
Beautiful piece. However it was so difficult to put together I had to hire a handyman adding $XXX to the price and he did not complete it correctly. Must be good at putting furniture together to purchase this.

Hello toca07, thank you for your inquiry! You will be contacted by customer care. overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 13, 2014
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
