Months of searching for an armoire in the color, size and style desired for a reasonable price was exhausting. Although the Aristo wasn't the color of choice, the depth was the next important feature. I am very pleased with this purchase. I put it together by myself and took most of my Saturday. The instructions were easy to follow except for a few of the details in pictures were not clear (drawer slides and pieces L & M). Just took extra time to figure out. Also a few of the pre-drilled holes for the wooden dowels were not drilled deep enough and holes for the camlock screws were not drilled all the way through in step 8 when attaching top B to side panels. If using a power drill be cautious with the screws, go slow- the heads will break off with speed. I am using this armoire for clothing and all hangs freely without touching the doors. Love the doors, they fold back against the sides of the armoire. There is not room to use the shelves when using the clothing rod. Shelves will be utilized best if using for a TV or smaller childlike clothing. This armoire is very solid and the drawer bottoms are well made, not flimsy. The drawers slide easily and smoothly. Four stars because of assembly issues, but love this piece.
This is a good choice if you (or your partner) is tired of your clothes hanging out of over-stuffed dresser drawers. It's taller, wider and deeper than the traditional dressers I was looking at. Swallowed everything that my old IKEA dresser held, with plenty of room to spare. Assembly was fairly simple from a technical standpoint, but time consuming. Manipulating the sides and swinging door into place required some muscle. Worth it, though. The piece looks, feels and smells like quality. I am especially impressed with the rich walnut finish.
Great looking piece. It's not something that will be passed down through generations, but it works for what we needed it for right now. Took my husband and son roughly 4 hours to put together. You have to assemble everything. We ended up missing 1 of the knobs for the doors but overstock was very quick to send a new part. Pine is not my favorite wood but it is stained a beautiful color. Lots of storage to hang extra clothes and store sheets in. I feel like the bar provided is a little flimsy and may break soon. We'll figure out what to do when that happens. In the meantime, I am happy with the choice and that we didn't have to spend a fortune.
