Solid, Understated Elegance

This review is from: Modus Furniture Nevis Seven Drawer Dresser, Espresso (Kitchen)
Fourth piece of furniture from Modus Furniture International, all from the Nevis Espresso collection. All pieces shipped fast and were so well packed that no damage resulted, not even minor scratches. Far superior to the 10-or-so other large items we've ordered on-line. The measurements listed here were within a quarter inch of accuracy for this 7-drawer dresser. It came completely assembled, only requiring reversal of the drawer handles using a medium-size Phillips screwdriver. On a side note, the nightstand had minor, but significant damage on the bottom of its single drawer. The screws used to secure its steel sliding rail split the wood. Could easily have been prevented by pre-drilling the screw holes. The company promptly sent a replacement drawer that wasn't a great color/grain match, so ended up gluing the drawer bottom pieces back on and re-fastening with longer screws. Sorry, a little off topic, but it's the same company MFI. Love the fit, finish and color of all the Nevis collection: 7-drawer dresser, nightstand, queen bed and twin bed -- all ordered separately over two years. All are very solidly built, should last a lifetime. Glad Amazon is listed as the seller of this piece, that's an extra 3% off using our Amazon/Visa rewards card! Even the insides of all the drawers are finished to the same color, sheen, and smoothness as the outside of the piece. The top nicely presents the characteristics of wood grain, but the underlying wood stain application is evenly applied throughout. Moreover, it is very smooth to the touch. A quality piece at a fair price. Very pleased.
