        Customer comments about Whitney 66w 36h Ten-Drawer Dresser:

        I purchased the Whitney ten drawer dresser and two door/nine drawer storage cabinet in cherry together last fall. Overall, we are very happy with the units. We viewed the Linear units in the Washington, D.C. store before deciding on the Whitney line. The rounded edges offer something of a unique look that should remain pleasing over time.

        In regard to another reviewer's comment on the storage capacity, be mindful of the dimensions: these units are not as large as some others offered by R&B. The storage provided is versatile and accomodates a range of items. The slightly smaller size allows the units to fit into an average size bedroom without crowding.

        R&B customer service was commendable. We took delivery of three sets as the first two unfortunately arrived with some flaws and damage from transit. The delivery team noted the issues and customer service was very responsive to the circumstances and worked hard to make the situation right. Despite some bad luck, I would give my business to R&B again in the future.

        My only complaint lies with the drawer slides on the ten drawer dresser. Simply put, they seem cheap (noisy and wobbly) and not fitting of an otherwise high quality piece of furniture. The slides on the storage cabinet (which costs less than the dresser) are full-extension stainless that close softly. These are the slides that I viewed in-store on the Linear storage cabinet. An e-mail exchange with a design associate prior to order assured me that the slides on the dresser and the cabinet only differed in their extension. This was not accurate. Given the other issues we had taking receipt of the furniture, the subpar slides escaped my attention. In retrospect, I wish I had insisted that the dresser be equipped with the same slides as the cabinet. Given that the dresser has a metal base and our floors are wood, the sound of the noisy slides on the dresser are audible from the floor below: not a great feature in a house with a small child.

              Customer comments about Whitney 25w 53h Six-Drawer Dresser:

              Hasn't been delivered yet. Why do stores send these review surveys when they know the product hasn't been delivered yet? Beats me! Hopefully if they get enough dumb reviews like this one, they'll figure out how to better manage this stuff.

              Service and delivery comments:

              My initial delivery was scheduled for April 25th. I scheduled a trip out of town to be back and ready for delivery on the 25th. The driver was supposed to call on the 24th to confirm delivery time on the 25th. On April 18th I recieved a voice mail from Room and Board stating that the color was not right on the item and they wished to replace it but since they did not talk to me in person they would send the original dresser so that I had something to use while waiting for the replacement. I called customer service back within the hour and spoke with a different representative who said that there was no color issue but that there was a big scratch on the item. I said it's fine either way, but there is no need to send out the defective item as I had a dresser that I was using. The lady said 'ok'. Since I didn't have to be back for the delivery I rescheduled my return in order to have more time with my grandmother. Imagine my surprise when on the 25th I received a phone call from the driver advising me that he'd be at my house in a couple hours to deliver the dresser. (No call on the 24th mind you he only called when he was already on the road). I explained my situation to him and told him to call Room and Board to clarify. I also made another call to Room and Board. They said that the second customer service agent had not annotated things properly. Anyhoo...on May 14th I recieved another phone call from Room and Board letting me know that the new unit was ready and would be delivered on May 24th. (Just for reference, the item was ordered on March 19th.) Based on the courtesey of the staff I've spoken with I'm pretty sure that eventually I will have the item and it will be great. It's just taking quite a bit of time and since it hasn't been delivered yet, I think it's kind of silly that they sent me this link asking me to review the product etc etc...

              We love the simplistic look and detailing of the rounded edges on this item. Wish we had a larger one because we have more clothes to store.

              Delivery was prompt. Wood was oiled prior to delivery and the setup was quick.

                This dresser has been a great addition to my bedroom. I purchased the cherry finish and it has become darker and more beautiful over time. The drawers are deep enough to put a blanket and glide very easily. The media hole in the back allows me to put my phone charger and other devices inside the cabinet. Many people have commented on how much they like the rounded corners on the piece. The timeless design will allow me to keep this dresser for many years. There was a little sawdust in the drawers, but after a quick vacuum, I haven't had any issues with things being dusty.

                    I never write reviews, but felt it was worthwhile on this purchase. One of our Whitney nightstands arrived with some surface scratches that had damaged the finish of a shelf. R&B sales rep called to followup on our purchase. I let her know about the problem and they corrected it quickly without any major ordeal. Very good product with outstanding service means I will likely be back to R&B again!

                      This dresser was a beautiful addition to my master bedroom. The drawers are deeper than some others, but not so deep that your items could get lost. The low profile is great for visually expanding the room.

                              This design is beautiful and sleek. However, if I could do it all over again, I wouldn't buy this dresser. There was a tremendous amount of sawdust in the drawers and I spent a lot of time cleaning the piece before I put my clothes into it. That wasn't enough. Every time I open a drawer, there is sawdust on the clothing. I have stopped putting clothes in the drawers because of this, making it not too useful as a dresser.

                                  Because the Whitney in solid walnut has an oil and wax finish, we recommend our Satin Wax for the care and maintenance of the wood.
