I love the look of the dresser, and it seems sturdy, but it took about 2.5 hours to assemble, this was after I had already assembled the night stands that went with it, which took another 2 hours. Three of the drawer facings were damaged, so I called the company and they were willing to replace them for free, but it would be 8 weeks until I receive the parts because they were shipping them from overseas. I wish I would have known the extent of assembly required prior to purchasing this dresser and the night stands.
Nice style, attractive for contemporary and modern looks. This dresser is somewhat difficult to put together. As with most build it yourself furniture the instructions are not very detailed and that can lead to big problems. A lot of these types of furniture are manufactured in Asia and they have a different way of doing things. Watch out when assembling this particularly when doing the center piece "E". Also I discovered at the finishing steps that there were not enough of the No. 3 and No. 7 screws!
I assembled the drawers over a few evenings and then did the frame in about 90 minutes. Once I figured out the trick with the CAM locks, it actually wasn't difficult to put them together (put the CAM lock in AFTER you slide the bolt into the holes). The frame is very solid and sturdy once assembled. The problem is the drawers, they don't line up quite right and the drawers don't slide easily. One of the drawers wheels arrived broken but I didn't notice until after I put the thing together. It's good enough for the price but I probably wouldn't buy again. Nightstands are nicer.
The dresser arrived mostly undamaged except for a small scratch on one side. It seems sturdy enough and looks great. One suggestion is to improve the directions for assembling the piece. They are not the best and it takes at least 3-4 hours to assemble. Note, you will need a power drill to assemble this piece. We were pleased with this purchase but the instruction manual really needs to be improved upon.
