I received my order in time but 1 of the 4 bookcases I ordered had parts completely broken. The quality is very low even considering the price. Some parts could not be put together because they had too big holes for the skrews to be fixed. The back panels were simply of paper and they arrived damaged as well. I asked for new parts to replace the broken ones. The delivery service was very good and this time I received even a little better quality for the new parts. Considering the amount of work to put the bookcases together, I will suggest to look for a better quality to avoid a waste of time and, eventually, of money!
I didn't realize that my furniture I purchase had to be assemble. The instruction was fairly easy but time consuming although the quality of it was very good. I would recommend this to a friend or family member which I have done. Hopefully, they will be purchasing an item soon.
Ran out of some screws & brads (able to use my own collection of brads), had some trouble lining up holes to drawer brackets but feel this "tightness" lends to strength of drawer. Dresser much lighter/paler in color than picture (disappointment). However, I was replacing a similar dresser in our summer rental unit - this dresser seems much studier than the original & certainly far more spacious. Very classy looking. Same dent in shipping box, probable cause of small dent on bottom surface of dresser top-no problem, cannot be seen, does not affect overall appearance nor sturdiness of dresser.
It is the perfect size for my bedroom and better than expected quality. It was a little difficult to put together (time consumming)but the results were well worth it. Am really enjoying it and the look of it.

The box was VERY heavy! Once opened, I took out all pieces/parts to assure everything was received. I am THRILLED at how this youth bed went together. VERY precise instructions - I was EXTREMELY IMPRESSED how each and every hole and screw and section were aligned and fit PERFECTLY together. It took me a couple of hours to assemble only because I did it on my own and without power tools but I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BED - looks, assembly, price, strength all 100%!
We received the TV stand and love it! The instructions for putting it together were extremely clear. We had been looking and looking for a TV stand that would compliment our decor and are so pleased with the look and quality of this piece! Thank you!

The box was not marked "Heavy" anywhere. Thus it looked like it had been dropped several times. After we started the assembly, we discovered that some pieces were crushed on the corners. If we could of packed this back up, we probably would not of kept it.
FIRST, be fore warned, you will have to assemble this dresser yourself. I did it by myself but having someone there to assist you will make it much easier. The dresser itself is quite beautiful. But the drawer sliders are made of plastic. You get what you pay for. They work just fine but plastic just doesn't hold up to general wear and tear like metal.
It was fairly easy to install. took about 3 hr. Missing a piece and call them and the missing piece was expressed shipped to us in a week. Frame is simple and beautiful and pretty solid. would recommend.
Got this on sale, it holds most of my clothes (* I have more than I should) and looks great while doing so, feels very strong and sturdy. I lack space in my bedroom and this armoire was a great and helpful addition. 10 out of 10 would buy again. It did take me longer than expected to build it but once I got into the swing of things it was kind of a fun puzzle to put together. Could use slightly better instructions for the metal wheel parts for the drawers. Recommend having a friend with you, I''m heavily pregnant and the boxes were very heavy and hard to open just by hand...but I''m a weakling, so that might have been a personal issue -- and too lazy to get up to get a knife to open it once I had sat down in preparation of building the unit.
The drawers can’t handle the weight of a 10 year old''s clothes. The bottom falls off and the fronts keep popping off. I had to reinforce each drawer and fix the front of each one by one as it falls apart; and we have only had the bed 3 months!
You may say it''s the builder, but my amateur years of building Ikea furniture says different. Those Ikea drawers are still holding together after all these years. My Lego skills are mad decent!!! If I do say so myself. Its pretty clear why you can’t buy this bed and accessories in store. Because they don’t want you too see the cheap quality that it really is. The finish is already pealing in some spots. How many brown pens does it take to fix this? Not enough!
If I was rich, I would with anger chop the bed apart with true temper and have the splinters and wood shipped back with a red bow. Or simply take the bed outside and burn it with great satisfaction. A bon fire of angry heat and flames. Then ship back the ashes in a coffee container, maybe a red bow too, but I’m poor and I value my time and money. I will keep it because the boy needs a bed to sleep in. Thank the gods for free shipping! Plus to add to it, they sent a weak little delivery man and my pregnant girlfriend had to help him.
Since there is space under the bed. I was going to take advantage of it and make a secret layer in the back. Since I don’t care cutting and modifying because of how crappy the bed is. I’m going to cut out the side shelves and reinforce it and make a secret door that leads to a secret room under the bed. And all the places where the material is coming off. I’m going make and add stickers of computer circuits. Give it a steam punk vibe. Thank you South Shore Furniture and Lowe’s. Never stop improving and that''s what I will do with this bed…..
We were extremely disappointed with this south shore line of bedroom furniture. It is made of cheap plasterboard. The backs of the dresser and chest of drawers are made of cardboard. The drawer brackets are flimsy plastic. I have never seen bedroom furniture this poor quality and am frankly disappointed Lowe''s carries it. We are returning our purchase as it is essentially disposable.
Quality seems good. The instructions have good pictures and are a good starting point, but the pieces aren''t labeled and the top and bottom can be interchanged to a point and have to be oriented right. I first put the top piece on the bottom and noticed the other piece wasn''t painted right to be on top, so had to switch out. Then I put the top piece in the correct place but later discovered it was upside down to attach the front stiffener, so had to do it over. You must pay very close attention to each piece and what holes are in it and also which surfaces are painted and which are not. Maybe do a mock up without installing fasteners to save yourself some hassles. All of this could have been avoided by labeling the pieces and a few more words in the instructions.
Will be returning ours. Came broken and when we were assembling it, the plugs you place into the wood to screw it together did not properly fit so it would not hold a proper structure and literally collapsed.
This bed looks really nice and feels very solid. Had read some reviews about the drawers not fitting properly, but not this bed. They work great! It''s exactly what we were looking for and so far we are very happy with our purchase.
We bought 5 of the South Shore 5 shelf units for our new home and couldn''t be happier with the total experience. Bought on a "no tax" sale, nothing for shipping and they were packed so well nothing could''ve happened to them on their way here. Unbelievable price for 5 units and they went together in less than 45 minutes each. Very sturdy and good looking too. They look like they cost way more than they did and everyone that sees them comments on how nice they look.I would not hesitate to buy from this company again.
We purchased a bedroom set from another furniture store about 6 years ago for our guest room and recently decided that we should have bought the matching chest. We were very happy to see that Lowes carried our missing piece! It is a perfect match to the rest of the set (including drawer pulls) and was easy to assemble. The price was very reasonable and we are very happy with our purchase!
Bought it for my 6 years old daughter as a present for grade 1 . She absolutely loved it especially the draws for her privacy. looks great in the room especially with the matching headboard. Easy to assembly. Great product for the amount paid.
