Customers who purchase a protection plan are covered for the above-mentioned damages as soon as their drawers are delivered.

Pros

Most customers were quite satisfied with their purchase of this item. Some went so far as to call it a fabulous piece of furniture, while others praised the ease with which it could be assembled. It comes with instructions that are pretty clear, and it fits well with many different types of room layouts, themes, and moods. This is one of those dressers that are simple, yet elegant, low on cost, yet sturdy, and simple and easy to assemble, yet with a high customer rating for durability. It even comes with great customer care and round the clock online and phone care service.

The drawers are wide and deep, although there were a few customers who said that they wanted deeper drawers, and that they were unable to fit everything they wanted to in the three drawers that this item comes with. The surfaces are easily maintained, the real-life colors of the product are pretty true to the online depiction, and it fits cozily into most spaces, unless of course you need it for a very niche or small corner, walkway, or entryway.

All in all, this is a drawer that gives you what you need in a simple and functional storage solution, and it has numerous furniture items that it goes well with in the same collection by Mercury Row (not to mention countless items across different Wayfair product listings that all match the same design and theme as this item). This is an easy and straightforward item to go with, and the overall rating of 3.7 stars out of a possible 5 is good enough for most customers.

Cons

Some customers complained about the size of this item. It has been stated that the inside of the chest (the parts that guides the drawers in and out when you open and close it, ie. the gliders) are made of plastic, although they are stated to be made of metal. The drawers are supposed to slip into a plastic slot and that is how they open and close, but when you try to put the drawer into the chest, the paint and plastic starts to peel away from the wood, making it impossible at times to even get the drawers in. The customer who faced this issue had to eventually nail the painted plastic parts to the wood in order to simply get the drawer to fit inside the chest, which for them was way too much effort for something that risks falling apart and is somewhat lacking in terms of functionality and sturdiness.

Other customers said that because there were no words on the assembly instructions and only pictures of each step in the assembly process, some materials suffered dents and damage and became bruised. There were even missing pieces in some sets, although there are sometimes extras that can be ordered at no additional charge.

Overall, in terms of looks, this chest of drawers left most customers pleased and satisfied, and the only consistent issues were with the functionality of the drawers. It takes effort to open each drawer and they are not heavy enough to put anything fragile on top because of the amount of force needed to open them, although this type of shortcoming may be somewhat expected at such a low price point.

Conclusion

The bottom line for this item is that it looks nice, but the quality is slightly poor. However, quality issues are somewhat expected for an item in the sub-$100 price range. If you want a sturdy, long-term item, perhaps look for something else to buy, but if you want an eye-pleaser that you can afford to replace or dispose of after a short stint of use, this item is as good as and beautiful as any.

Because this is an item that does not really cost that much (this much should be obvious from the fact that there isn’t even a monthly payment plan as is often found with general and pricier home furnishing items), buying it for simple and functional storage is perfectly fine. The color schemes that are available, the space that it takes up, the fact that it is made from environmental-friendly materials, and the fact that it comes with easy and hassle-free delivery all make this a great item to buy.

On the downside, there are often issues with drawer functionality, and the drawers not only have a limited amount of storage capacity, but they are limited as well in terms of the weight that they are able to sustain. This is a rather light product, and you cannot overload the top of the drawers with open items such as books or decorations, because the product itself simply cannot take them.

If you want something long-terms, then go for a solid-wood furniture item. There are plenty from which to choose on Wayfair, including Mercury Row items. Otherwise, if you want something quick and simple, something that is cheap and easy to replace, then the Conder 3 Drawer Dresser is as good a chest of drawers as any.

In closing, we do not accept money, gifts or samples from furniture companies in exchange for special consideration in the preparation of our reviews.
