    • Material Description: Walnut adds timeless depth and character to your room. Even after walnut is harvested and made into furniture, it continues to be a living, breathing material that responds to its environment - it expands and contracts with changes in humidity and also changes color over time as it's exposed to air, sunlight and wear. New walnut starts as a dark chocolate brown and beautifully ages to lighter brown or honey color over time.
    • Hardware: nickel
    • Finish: brushed
BERKELEY CONSTRUCTION DETAILS

BERKELEY CONSTRUCTION DETAILS

Learn how every part of our American-made Berkeley collection is created, from the materials and hardware to construction methods and finish details.
Benchmade Construction

Benchmade Construction

Each Berkeley piece is constructed one at a time by an expert artisan. The entire case is reinforced with time-tested joinery, built and assembled by hand and then hand sanded and finished before it comes to you as a fully assembled piece. Our commitment to benchmade construction ensures you receive furniture that's built to last a lifetime.

Solid Wood

Solid Wood

We source our solid woods within the U.S., which has some of the strictest forestry standards in the world. Every board is hand selected for color consistency and strategically placed to create a cohesive appearance. The natural markings of the wood make each Berkeley piece one of a kind. The Berkeley collection features solid wood frames, doors, drawer fronts and bases.

Wood Veneer Reinforcement

Wood Veneer Reinforcement

Berkeley pieces have wood veneer tops, sides and interior panels, and unfinished wood veneer exterior back panels. Berkeley’s wood veneer is made by applying a layer of solid wood to premium grade particle board. This combination of materials increases structural integrity because it doesn’t expand or contract with seasonal humidity changes like solid wood. Berkeley’s wood veneer is thicker than the industry standard and CARB 2 compliant for low emissions.

Finish

Finish

Berkeley is available in a beautiful range of natural and stained woods. Stain colors are meticulously applied by hand and layered until the perfect color is achieved. A clear low-sheen lacquer is used on both natural and stained woods to protect and seal the surface. Regardless of your material selection, the grain of the wood is allowed to show through for a natural look.

Drawers and Glides

Drawers and Glides

Each drawer front is solid wood and perfectly aligned within the frame of the piece. The drawer boxes have Baltic birch plywood sides connected with dovetail joinery and a wood veneer bottom. Full-extension ball-bearing glides allow you to see the entire drawer when fully open and glide smoothly even when the drawer is filled to its 100-pound capacity. Drawer interiors are hand sanded and sealed with lacquer for a smooth, snag-free finish.

Doors, Shelves and Hardware

Doors, Shelves and Hardware

Select Berkeley pieces feature sliding doors with paper cord panels. Woven in Iowa using traditional methods, the paper cord panels are framed in solid wood. Hidden premium hardware allows doors to glide smoothly. Some storage pieces have solid wood doors with concealed, fully adjustable, soft-close hinges that open 110 degrees. Shelves are made from wood veneer and rest on adjustable steel pins. We designed Berkeley’s distinctive steel pulls exclusively for this collection.

    This is a large dresser that offers ample storage. My master bedroom is quite large and I needed a piece that would anchor the space. The quality is worth the money. I feel the style would translate to many homes and many uses.

      this dresser is great, we needed a lot of storage in our apartment because there is only one closet, and we had room for almost everything in this dresser. It is solid and well-made, I'm glad we got it.

      The delivery service was great, I picked a date that worked for me at check out, and the morning of I got a call from the delivery men. They were friendly and efficient.

      Quality control problems

        Best Uses

          Customer comments about Berkeley 72w 20d 43h Ten-Drawer Dresser:

          The dresser is absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately ours was delivered with parts of it separating. This is clearly a manufacturer defect and not a delivery issue. Room and Board sent a second dresser with the exact same problem. So far I have been waiting for over a month for our dresser and Room and Board has yet been able to deliver a unit that isn't defective. It would seem to make sense for someone to inspect it before sending it out for delivery. I understand that this can happen once but delivering a unit two separate times with the same defect tells me that there must be a problem with the quality of this and also that no one from Room and Board is keeping an eye on quality and customer service. I am very disappointed by this.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Our delivery person "Able" was first rate and he is the one that pointed out the flaws before we noticed them. Able is a great asset to this company.

          Customer comments about Berkeley 72w 20d 43h Ten-Drawer Dresser:

          This is a gorgeous, well made, heavy piece of furniture. Our dresser shopping experience included a lot of online research, and we weren't entirely sure what we wanted (or wanted to invest). But I kept coming back to this piece because of its clean lines and simple design paired with rich finish on what appeared to be really nice quality wood. It just isn't something you find easily. We are so glad this is what we chose. It looks exactly as it does on the website, only it feels more substantial in person - no amount of measuring and space planning really captured it's heft. It's is a statement piece even with it's simplicity.

          A couple of the drawer glides stick and the design requires some adjusting to keep the drawers plumb. Worth it.

          Now we're shopping for nightstands and I have a feeling we will end up with a matching table.

            We already owned the Berkeley nightstands and were excited to add in a dresser. It is a beautiful piece of furniture and also very functional. We have had no trouble with the drawers or construction of any of our pieces. We couldn't be happier with the purchase.

                The Berkeley bedroom set is pricey but you get what you pay for - very sturdy, high quality pieces that are beautiful. This piece in particular is awesome - it has a deceiving large amount of storage space - my wife and I each have our own side. It feels like a very quality piece with excellent finishes with drawers that function better than any dresser I've ever had.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Delivery was awesome. It is not outsourced so the delivery guys take pride in their work. There was a minor delivery issue - and Room & Board refunded the delivery charge and gave us a $200 gift card - we didn't even ask - the delivery team just proactively did this because they wanted to make sure we were happy (and we weren't upset in the first place).

                      The last review I read on this set of dressers was not favorable and nearly made me reconsider the purchase. But I went ahead and ordered the 55" and 37" wide dressers, and I'm so glad I did. The finish is strong and beautiful and the dresser style is distinctive. The bottom boards of the drawers may be a bit thin so I would think it's important not to overstuff the drawers. And yes, the drawers are a little sticky when closing but I think this will resolve itself over time. So...another fine product from R&B.

                      Free Returns and Exchanges

                      We offer free return or exchange delivery service on any item you buy from us. We understand that it can take a few days to a few weeks to determine if your new furniture will work for you. We encourage you to return or exchange items in a timely manner because damage or wear will result in an adjustment to your final refund.
