Despite the many, many negative reviews on this product, I ordered it anyway, hoping that I could prove them wrong. Well, I think I did. We received this dresser earlier than expected. It was purchased for our nursery as a dresser/changing table combination. First, the packaging looked damaged when I saw it on the front porch. I was really concerned until I realized that the box was packaged with additional padding around the sides/corners. It was the padding that was smashed a bit, but the box itself was in perfect condition. We took inventory of all the parts before we started to assemble, and everything was there, in flawless condition. Now, I will say the instructions are a big vague, so we read through them first, laid out the pieces in order of assembly, and made sure we had all the right tools (you will only need a hammer and a Phillips head screwdriver). It went together beautifully, and it is one SOLID piece of furniture. One piece of advice – pay attention to the letters on the pieces. I read some reviews that stated the drawers didn’t line up right… we experienced that too, until we realized that there were three drawers labeled “R” and three labeled “R II.” Turns out all of the “R” drawers went on the left side of the dresser and all of the “R II” drawers went on the right side of the dresser (when looking at the dresser front). Once we did this, the drawers lined up perfectly!

I purchased this dresser to color match and compliment a babies crib. I was totally surprised!! This dresser is perfect!! First I will say, the box was so heavy I had to have help getting it inside the house (not a bad thing). It’s pretty but not ornate, was easy to assemble, color matches the crib perfectly, and was an excellent price. Couldn’t be more pleased with this dresser
I purchased two nightstands, 6-drawer dresser and attaching mirror a couple of weeks ago and I love them all!
First of all, I did the free shipping and it arrived two days before the estimated date. However, the boxes were a little wrinkled/crushed when I received them.
The nightstands came in perfect condition though – no dents or dings on any of the pieces. The dresser pieces did come with a few dings on a few corners/edges but nothing the touch up pen couldn’t take care of. (I’m pretty much a perfectionist and I don’t notice them)
All look great and weren’t too hard to assemble. I thought the instructions were clear and precise for the most part. Sometimes you just have to use common knowledge! The nightstands took about an hour to assemble each and the dresser + mirror took about two hours. Be aware that the drawers for the dresser are side specific. We put it together and tried to just mix and match and I about had a heart attack when they wouldn’t fit. But with drawer rearranging, they fit perfect.
All three are sturdy, have even legs and easy sliding drawers. I was a little worried about the plastic drawer sliders instead of metal, but they were easy to assemble and slide great. The knobs are real metal as well — which makes them look really good.
I’ve only had them for about two weeks so I cannot say how long they will last, but they are good quality for the price. If you are looking for something modern, good-looking and cheap — this is the way to go!
I bought this dresser back in Nov 2010 for my daughter, who is particularly hard on furniture (she was 15 at the time), and it has held up wonderfully this whole time, which is why I gave it 5 stars. I didn’t have any problems with missing pieces, but I do recommend doing a thorough inventory of all the parts and pieces before getting started. Assembly took a while, about 2 hours by myself, but it wasn’t particularly difficult. The rails that the drawers slide on are great, and they glide smoothly. The drawers are a nice size, too. The knobs are simple, yet classy, and will go with most decor, but if you wanted you could easily replace them with whatever knobs you like. This is a great furniture piece for a teen or a spare bedroom. I will be ordering the tall dresser from this collection for my boys’ rooms soon.
I ordered a bunch of the South Shore Vito collection (2x Nightstands, 2x 6 Drawer double dressers, the Storage bed, and Bookcase Headboard). All items were shipped and delivered quickly. The boxes are very heavy (the Night stands are fairly lightweight but dressers and especially the bed frame are very hard (the bed frame nearly impossible! to move by yourself). The UPS guy was kind enough to help me move all of them inside my 2nd floor apartment (thank god there is an elevator!). All items were packaged extremely well, no damage to any of the pieces, and all parts were included.
Assembly was very easy, just kind of time consuming (this was my first time assembling any furniture so if I can do it anyone can). All you need is a Phillips head screwdriver and a hammer. I assembled the two Nightstands and one of the 6 drawer dressers the first day while watching Scarface (so over the span of a little over 2 hours) by myself, having two or more people would definitely be awesome, not required at all as I had no difficulty assembling everything alone, but would definitely save you alot of time if you have more than one item to assemble.
After assembly I wiped all the packaging dust off and applied a little windex, all the pieces are very sturdy (I have a loft apartment, bedroom is upstairs, as I was by myself I flipped the double dresser over and over up the stairs to get it up, the piece felt very solid, no loose parts or flimsyness) and everything looks great! I sent one of the double dressers back (without taking it out of the package) only because I underestimated their size, they are quite large, more than adequate in the space department, I have some closet space and along with one of these would be hard pressed to fill up the one, let alone two ha.
Overall very satisfied with all the South Shore Items I ordered and assembled and would gladly order from them in the future.
