    Love the design and the quality. It should last for years. I simply wish, at this price point, that R&B would provide better hardware (soft close). It costs very little more, and it much nicer to use.

    Customer comments about Berkeley 72w 43h Ten-Drawer Dresser:

    It's amazing the foreign-made junk you'll find in most furniture stores at prices the same or higher than Room and Board's. We searched online, and in dozens of brick and mortar stores from Sacramento to San Francisco, looking for quality case goods at a fair price, until we stumbled upon Room and Board online. Liked the designs, so checked out their offerings in their San Francisco store. Without a doubt R&B offers the best compromise between quality, style, and price. Quality: Solid wood where it counts, wood laminate where it makes economic sense without compromising design or construction, dovetail drawer joints, reliable drawer slides. Style: You're either drawn to R&B's design aesthetic or you're not. If you're reading this, you probably are. R&B's goods provide the most aesthetically pleasing design consistency we've seen in any store. Price: The best thing about R&B is that you're getting quality that is actually commensurate with price. We've found higher priced case goods that were of significantly lower quality, and we've found lower priced goods that are not even worthy of discussion. So how about this piece specifically? It does not disappoint. Very solid construction, beautifully finished to the eye and touch, generous interior proportions. It has only two minor shortcomings: 1) The drawers are mounted on very good quality full extension side mounted ball bearing slide rails, but I've seen (and have) better, and would have preferred concealed undermount self-closing slides to the side mount slides. 2) The bottom of the drawer interiors have a slightly rough finish to the touch, which seems a little odd, considering that the interior sides have a very smooth finish. It's not a deal breaker by any means, but a slick-smooth finish to the drawer interiors would have been preferred. These two minor issues were a cost compromise in material and labor, I'm sure. Having seen and touched the piece in the store, we were aware of these minor shortcomings, factored them into the overall cost/quality/design equation, and bought this piece as well as the Berkeley four drawer dresser and two nightstands. Having bought four pieces in the Berkeley line of case goods, I'm impressed with the consistency of construction, design, and finish. Bottom line: I don't see how you could possibly go wrong with R&B's Berkeley line.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Wow. Where to start? I view the term Customer Service primarily as a marketing concept. Been to a Home Depot or Lowes lately? Every employee has been ordered to ask how your day is and whether they can help you. Fact is, they don't care. Verizon, AT&T? Customer service? Seriously? Comparing Room and Board's version of Customer Service to my typical day-to-day customer service experience was something of a shock. In a word: Awesome. I ordered four pieces online, and after the order completed I found another piece I wanted to add to the order. Wanting to take advantage of the one price delivery charge, I looked for a way online to add the extra piece to my original order. Failed. Called customer service, explained the situation, and had the extra piece added to my order within two minutes. The online order information stated that our order would ship by a certain date, that the shipment would arrive within a two to three week time frame after that date, and that we would be called on the ship date to confirm delivery details. The first call confirmed the order details and shipping information, and I was told that I would receive another call on a specific date that would provide a specific delivery date. That happened. On that call I was told that the driver (Gary!) would call the day before delivery to confirm that he would, in fact, arrive on the scheduled delivery date within a specific time window. That happened. When Gary called the day prior to delivery, he said he would call when he was within a half hour or so away. That happened. I guess the point here is that R&B actually proactively did everything they said they would, and then some. The delivery guys (Gary and Jeff) couldn't get their entire tractor trailer rig to our house via our narrow windy rural roads, so they unhitched the trailer, and moved our furniture from the trailer to the back of the tractor piece by piece to get them to our house. Once at our house, they brought it DOWN our side-of-a-hill driveway, then UP two flights of stairs to our bedroom. No scratches or damage to either the new furniture or the house, all the packing material went away with them, and they were pleasant the entire time. From a cynic's perspective the whole experience was somewhat surreal. I could be wrong, but I think the experience was probably typical of doing business with R&B. It just went too smoothly to have been a fluke.

    Customer comments about Berkeley 72w 43h Ten-Drawer Dresser:

    the hardware should be soft close.. right now it needs to be pushed
    with little effort .. but still effort.. and who needs that..
    I wiped the drawer slides and sprayed WD40
    it improved but hopefully with time they will push back all the way
    easily and be flush.. because now they project out 1/8" beyond the face of the cabinet, until you push it back.

      I am obsessed with this dresser! I agonized about purchasing it because the top and side panels are veneer and I didn't want to waste my money. But it looks flawless and is so big that it serves as the only dresser for both me and my husband! It is beautifully constructed.

                This line is gorgeous! We actually ordered the Bennett, had it delivered and when they unwrapped it they discovered the top of one dresser had been damaged. They left the dressers there until they could bring back a replacement dresser. In the meantime, I realized I was not happy with the stain we chose and the drawers seemed not very sturdy. We exchanged the Bennett for Berkeley and I am over the moon happy with it. The walnut finish is gorgeous and warm, the drawers feel heavy and solid and although the Berkeley measures roughly the same as the Bennett, it has a smaller presence than the Bennett. It doesn't overpower the room. It's sleek and stylish but classic and will not look dated in 10 years. So happy we switched!

                    I have both the 72" 6 drawer dresser and the larger nightstand side tables. My finish is walnut with the natural steel pulls. The finish of the wood is flawless...rich, deep with natural shadings. It's a vibrant finish and not at all flat looking. While it's not serious enough to be a "con", I feel I'll have to be careful with the finish and always make sure it's protected by a coaster when using a glass or cup.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    The furniture arrived in perfect condition. There was a two week delay in its arrival due to manufacturer delay but I received an email informing me of this. Delivery service was courteous and helpful with correct placement.

                              A:

                              For the Berkeley collection, the base material is a premium grade of industrial MDF; on the tops we use 1” and on the side panels we use ¾” material. The veneers are made by carefully choosing high quality boards and re-sawing them to a veneer strip that starts at 3/16” thick. Some material is removed during the leveling process, and we strive for a 1/8” thick veneer on the panels. Whereas, throughout the industry, most wood veneers run about 1/42 of an inch. Veneers are on the inner top surrounded by solid wood framing, and veneers are on the side panels between the solid wood legs.
