For the price, I wouldn't buy it again. If I had seen it in a store, I would not have purchased. I do like the design, and aesthetically it looks great in the room. I like the leg design, and the drawers without pulls. I feel it looks very midcentury. It's just the quality of it I'm not happy with. The piece arrives in a box assembled except for the legs - no problem to put them on. All the drawers were mis aligned and had to be removed, somewhat forceably and put back in. Now they work fine. But, for example, there are no soft close features with this dresser. It's very plywood inside the drawers, the stacked birch does not feel substantial in any way. I told my husband it cost 13 the price, and he said it was cheap, but looked ok. Basically, I agree. Too bad it was so darn expensive!! (For what you get) We have a Nursery Works set that is beautiful and much higher quality.
