I purchased this chest for my living room and absolutely L~O~V~E it! It looks like an actual French antique! The painting is very beautifully done in gorgeous gray tones. As others have said it doesnt have slides in the drawers but this certainly isnt a problem. The drawers still open and close quite easily. Im storing extra napkins and linens in mine and love looking at it everyday!
It truly is a beautiful piece of furniture. Its heavy and i like the size of it. Its got lots of details and distress. The drawers dont have rails so it may not be ideal for everyday use. A perfect addition to my living room.
I love the look of this chest I purchased from Wisteria but was very disappointed with the overall quality of the piece. The drawers are not solid wood - even though it appears that way from the outside the inside of the drawers are manufactured wood that have a plastic appearance and a distinct odor. Also the pulls on the top drawer are already falling off after very little use. I would not recommend this chest for the price unless its on major sale.
We bought this dresser and stored it for a few months. It was similar to another one we bought here so we thought we would use as nightstands. Well this dresser does not have tracks and is very hard to open and close due to the small rings for handle and no tracks. It also smells so bad we are trying to rid the smell so we can finally use. I would have returned this one if I found all this out earlier.
**Update to previous reviewAfter Wisteria learned of the problem I was having with the drawers of this chest they graciously offered to fix the problem and replace the disfunctional chest. The new chest arrived and the drawers work very well easily open and close. I can now happily report that the function of this piece is as wonderful as its looks. Thanks so much Wisteria!
I absolutely love the design and look of this chest. It looks very delicate and unique; the painting and distressing is simply gorgeous. BUT the downside is: because there is no slides its extremely frustrating to close. Im using this as an everyday dresser in my bedroom which its just not equipped for. Its too pretty to even consider replacing but I would definitely suggest this as an occasional/side chest that isnt used constantly.
The drawers do not open and close well at all. In fact my husband curses me every morning when he gets dressed for work. I purchased it for my bedroom after losing all my furniture in hurricane sandy. This dresser is as dissapointing as the storm!
Dresser is very pretty and looks exactly as pictured - however the drawers have no tracks and the stops are awkward. It is very difficult to open and close the drawers as it requires two hands and is not smooth at all. The drawers are absolutely not ideal for everyday/frequent use. This dresser is not as high quality as the price would suggest and is much lower quality than other Wisteria items I own.
I too bought this piece for everyday use and found the drawers to be very difficult to open and close. If you will take them out turn them over and put furniture wax aka bowling alley wax and the drawers and the slides the problem is solved!!I too was ready to replace or contact Wisteria. Simple fix. Now easy to use and drawers slide well.
