Their roots in the American lifestyle are deep, as 97 percent of their furniture is made in the USA.

Local and environmental ethics combined with timeless and elegant furniture is their signature.
Like the dresser, I am very happy with this chest. The molding and hardware on this piece are quite exquisite, and the drawers a very wide, deep, and they slide open with ease. There's nothing worse than having a warped drawer that you have to struggle to open, and neither the chest or dresser have that issue. They are very well-made pieces of furniture!
The chest comes with tipping restraints that you can install. I don't plan on installing it, but I would imagine such a thing might be necessary if you have kids around (I do not). It weighs 155 lbs, and it feels pretty sturdy on its own, so I don't see the need.
Service and delivery comments:
My dresser, chest, and nightstand all come in one shipment. Like the dresser, the chest was packaged with care and arrived in perfect condition.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
