I bought these, wanting something tall enough for a large California king bed that's about 36 inches tall. These fit the bill well. I've had these for more than two years, and they've stood up reasonably--only a minor scratch on one from a cat who was a little too excited. As other reviewers said, you can't open the drawer if you have things next to it, so it's not ideal next to the bed--unless you don't put anything in the drawers. One minor gripe with them is that the parts that are routed out on the top and some parts of the carving are a little rough. This means it can be hard to dust in those grooves. A microfiber cloth with some furniture polish does a reasonable job. Another minor problem is that it's hard to find other pieces that match or go with it. They're close to black, but not quite black. They do go OK with other black items, though. Overall, I was pleased with these.
