This dresser turned out to be better than expected. The drawers are wide and deep, and perfect for storing my jeans and sweaters. For a single guy, I have a lot of clothes, but there's plenty of room for everything (there are even a few drawers empty).
The felt lining is perfect for keeping socks or ties, or anything delicate. There's nothing worse than pulling one of these out and finding that's its caught on a splinter. So, that's a very nice feature of this piece.
I did not order the mirror and simply because I wouldn't need it. I have every intention of putting a television in the bedroom and on top of this dresser, so it seemed rather pointless to opt for the mirror.
The drawers open smoothly, and the hardware is beautiful and quite easy to install (have a Philips head screwdriver handy). I'd highly recommend this piece!
Service and delivery comments:
With a delivery time of 2:00-6:00 p.m., they arrived at 3:00 p.m. and were in and out in less than 30 minutes. Not having to wait too long is always much appreciated.
The dresser arrived in pristine condition, and the deliverymen unwrapped it and took away all of the packaging.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
