Comments: Beautiful piece! I have this and the nightstand in my master bedroom. I absolutely love it and received a lot of compliments on it during my housewarming party. I looked for months and am so glad I settled on this. Two things to be aware of - the drawers close very loudly so if you have a baby or are nervous about that, keep in mind. 2) the piece is extremely heavy; luckily R&B delivered it to my room for me, which was great since I'm in a 4th floor walkup. :)

Comments: I purchased this dresser and nightstands online based on Room & Board's wonderland reputation and I'm happy I did. I searched online and at several furniture stores for months and couldn't quite find what I wanted. After ten minutes on Room & Board's website I had finally found the missing pieces to my bedroom. This piece is extremely heavy but the delivery men were very patient and careful when bringing my furniture to my upstairs bedroom oh and they also wore booties on their feet being careful not to track in dirt. My favorite thing about this dresser is the deep sturdy drawers which provide ample storage.

Comments: It's been about a month since my husband and I ordered the Bennett bedroom set and we couldn't be happier. While it took a little magic on the part of the delivery crew (our ceiling was too low in the stairway to allow the dresser to get upstairs easily), it was worth it! The finish on the dresser seems to be very durable and so far, we have no scratches anywhere. The drawers are deeper than our previous dresser, which has allowed us to clear out some things from our closet as well. And our room still smells like real wood, which has been wonderful. I look forward to having this dresser for many years to come! A side note for internet customers: we ordered a swatch from online and I will say that the actual finish of the furniture is much darker than the warm brown paper swatch - more of a black-brown. We weren't trying to match anything, so it wasn't a big deal, but you might want to get to a Room & Board store to see the actual color if you do have something you're trying to match.

Comments: The Bennett line is truly wonderful in every way. We purchased two 2-drawer night stands, the 9-drawer dresser and the large 10-drawer chest. We almost ordered the predecessor line from 2011 and I am really glad we waited. The Bennett drawers are much more roomy and the width appears to be designed for full stacks of clothes (rather than have a few extra inches that you can not use). We ended up with so much more drawer space that we use the bottom drawers for overflow from the linen closet. The finish is very smooth and easy to clean with a wet cloth. I particularly like the "Shell Stain" color which is grey. This color was a bit daring for us, but it has turned out beautifully, as it goes with warm and cool bedding. The style is very transitional so it goes with our mostly traditional pieces, but I would not hesitate to add a modern piece to the room. The drawers operate very smoothly! And make a really nice sound! A few really minor points to note: 1) the corners are really sharp! I have bumped into it a few times and it is very painful. 2) The pieces are on the large side so measure first and insist that the delivery people remove the drawers when carrying up stairs. It was really heavy and scary to watch them struggle over the weight and size of this piece going up the stairs. 3) I am picky about dust, so when I got the pieces, I wiped down all the drawers with a slightly damp cloth and found lots of fine saw dust all over it. It would have been nice if the finishing steps included a comprehensive vacuuming of the drawers and inside the cabinet. I highly recommend the Bennett pieces!!!

Comments: I had been eying this dresser for a few weeks and stopped in to the store in downtown Chicago to look at it and had to have it. The salesperson [@] made the purchase and delivery plans a pleasure and was just about as excited as we were! I let her know I was off Friday in a week and she said it could be delivered that day. Let me tell you that I did measure our place but did not really account for the twists and turns, and the ten drawer chest is REALLY heavy and large. [@] were the same delivery men we had on a previous order and knew the building and showed up on time. They somehow miraculously got this into our bedroom, and it took some work on their part. I can't say enough about the delivery service that R&B offers. They are second to none.This piece is extremely beautiful and should last. I just hope if we move we can get movers that are a good as R&B delivery people. I would highly recommend this dresser.

Comments: We got this dresser in the grey finish. It looks amazing in our bedroom. The scale is great. Big roomy drawers that are easy glide. at first I wasn't sure about the drawers. They slide very nice and are very large for storage, but they felt a little light and cheap? But I have filled all the drawers and now they feel more heavy when you open them. I guess they make them light weight so they are easy to open. Overall this is a great piece I would recommend.

Comments: We bought this dresser for our bedroom and like the design so much that we are considering getting the five-drawer chest to go along with it. We went with the shell finish, which is beautifully done. The drawers slide in and out easily. Great product.

Comments: I love this dresser for my one year old son. We get compliments from EVERYONE who sees it. Whether in the background of a picture or in person they just love it. It isn't just for a babies room either - it's something he can grow into and isn't matchy matchy with his crib so I can do whatever we want when it comes time to switch to a big boy bed. Can't say enough about this piece! We just love it!
The Bennett bedroom furniture collection is based on a 19th-century French cabinet we discovered in an antique shop. Featuring quality craftsmanship by Pennsylvania woodworkers, Bennett is an updated twist on a classic design and is built to last.

- Material Description: Maple is a durable, timeless hardwood. Even after maple 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 may change color over time as it's exposed to air, sunlight and wear. Our maple with shell stain features a hand-applied stain that was inspired by a sea shell. The color was designed to easily mix with other woods and materials and to brighten up a space.
- Secondary Material: natural steel See full material details
- Finish: lacquer
- Material Description: Our natural steel is domestically sourced from 99% recycled raw materials and hand-selected for consistent color and texture. Hand-welding can create unique markings, as well as color change, due to the heating and shaping of the steel. Subtle variations in color, along with the individuality of each craftsmans work, ensure that no two pieces are alike.
