I bought this bed in the queen size for my daughter's room. It is beautiful and very well manufactured. it is exactly how it appears on the pictures. The dimension are very well balanced and it can fit perfectly in a small room as well as in a bigger room.

bedroom furniture at its finest
After much debate, I decided to purchase this bed and am SO happy with my decision. When I called Anthropologie to learn details of shipping/delivery, they told me that my order would be relayed to the manufacturer, who would then make the bed and ship it in pieces via UPS. In actuality, the manufacturer called me within a week of my purchase to set up a delivery date and time. The bed was delivered in a timely manner and put together for me by warehouse employees. I think that the reason they delivered the bed rather than shipping it is because the manufacturer's warehouse is in New Jersey and I live relatively close, in Pennsylvania. The bed is beautiful in its simplicity, and definitely well made. I dressed it up a bit by hanging a few lanterns from the top circle.

My favorite bed
I had been wanting this bed for a really long time. Before I finally purchased this, my king-size bed was on the floor. I think this bed frame may be sturdier for a smaller bed. There are not many support beams to hold the box frames on a king-size bed. When this bed was initially set up for me (a very nice added perk with the delivery, by the way! I had expected to have to assemble it myself), the bed was on a hardwood floor. I don't think this bed works on hardwood floors at all. On the king-size, there are two v-shaped posts that are intended to support the weight in the middle of the bed. These posts move quite easily with any movement on top of the bed. Thus, the bed would "walk" away from the wall at the head. I had to push it back in place almost every day. I tried putting rubber mats just under the v-shaped posts, but it still didn't work. I even tried taking the mattresses off the frame and tightening everything to no avail. Finally, I purchased a rug to go under the bed. So far, this has worked very well! No more movement. The bed appears very delicate and airy and is really beautiful.
I had been eyeing this for ages and finally bought it over the last furniture sale. I received the dresser less than 3 weeks after ordering and it was initially on backorder until tomorrow. The delivery went well. I love the dresser and it is actually larger than I was expecting as I knew it was a smaller dresser. Here are measurements as Anthro only lists part of them:
Drawer 1- 20"x10"x5"
Drawer 2- 22"x11"x6"
Drawer 3- 26"x12"x7"
Drawer 4- 29"x14"x8"
Drawer 5- 32"x16"x9.5" and the feet are 2.5".
I gave this dresser 4 stars because a few areas seem like they were not sanded properly and are not smooth, causing the finish to look funny and the surface feels rough. I plan to refinish this. I may contact Anthropologie with photos to see if they can compensate for that. One area on the side with the messed up finish is about a 7"x7" area which is quite large. Still, it was a great piece for a corner in my dining room. I'm a woodworker and the quality of woodwork is pretty good, not perfect. You can also see some glue where the boxes were attached.

A WONDERFUL CHEST OF DRAWERS!!!
I liked this so much that I am going to order a second one(although I am not sure where I am going to find room for it)!
RE Cost of Shipping: I have purchased a bed and this chest from Anthropologie, and I think their shipping fees are a bargain! Having purchased numerous pieces of furniture(from various other sources) for my new condo, I can tell you that Anthropologie provides excellent white glove delivery service for a reasonable price! Design Within Reach(a very high end store that I have been buying from for years) charges more just to deliver the items to the doorstep, while their white glove delivery service is very expensive and quite dreadful. Crate and Barrel charged more just to deliver two floor mirrors to my threshold, and they didn't even deliver the correct product(I received cabinets instead of mirrors!).

the Understated Statement Piece
I bought this for my rather small New York City apartment and absolutely love it. It is so solid (real wood! beautiful wood!) and is unique without screaming "look at me!" in the way a lot of modern furnishings do these days. It holds a ton of stuff and is perfect for a small space that needs an understated statement piece.
Also! can we talk about the AMAZING delivery service?! I got it WITHIN 10 DAYS of ordering it, and the sweet delivery guys carried it up FIVE FLIGHTS of steep stairs for me, unpacked it and even apologized that they had to make a mess (which they promptly cleaned up) to unpack it. They also asked if I wanted to try it in different locations in the room and offered to move it around for me. Couldn't be happier with the service. Just to move things within the city you'd pay more and get worse service.
This table JUST arrived, and it was a anniversary gift from my husband. I have had this in my cart for almost 2 years and I am so beyond happy with this. It fits right in with my industrial contemporary look I am going for. It is the perfect size as well, hubby thought it was going to be to big and over baring, but it adds a certain elegance to the room. The only complaint that I have and it is probably not the manufacturers fault, but there is a slight scratch on the table that I am hoping hubby can buff out, but I was so distracted with dogs barking and the delivery guys (which were not the best, watched them outside my window trying to get the cardboard wrapping off the table and the took there feet and stomped on it) in my house that I did not notice it until they had left :(......crossing fingers and hoping.....but that has nothing to do with the actual table, it was a defect that came afterwords....just stunning..... if you have been having doubts about this table....buy it NOW...before it is not offered anymore....

This is one incredible piece. After reading the other reviews regarding the unfinished wood on this coffee table, I was prepared to do the wood sealing myself. The edges on the wood were also very rough and having young grandchildren this was also an issue. I sanded the wood top and sides to eliminate some rough spots and rubbed the top and sides with boiled linseed oil. After a lot of rubbing the table top is wonderful and fully sealed. It looks wonderful in our living room! Would highly recommend if you are willing to do the work to seal the wood.

I searched for the perfect coffee table for years....I never like any of them! This one is beautiful. The design is gorgeous and unique, and I thought the price was very fair given the iron work. It is huge! So make sure you measure first if you have a small place. The wood isn't finished, and I've looked into different possibilities for finishes, but I think they would all take away from the aesthetic of the raw wood. We just make sure to use coasters, and the one little coffee spill we had was wiped up immediately and there's been no spot. I figure that small scratches and stains won't be very noticeable on it, and will hopefully just build up a patina. The delivery took longer than promised, but I am overall very pleased with this table!
After a semi-hilarious assembly given the unique shape of the bookshelf, my husband and I got it up in about 20 min. It looks exactly as advertised, and fortunately, I have not noticed the "warping" that other reviewers encountered. Here it is before adding any books/bookends: https://cloudup.com/cw7sHw5fTJd
I could not be happier with the shelves. They add the perfect casual yet architectural element that I was going for.
The frame is a bit rustier than anticipated, giving it a more "rustic" over "polished" look, which I really like, but may not be everyone's cup of tea. We had to lay out an old sheet on the floor during assembly so as not to stain the carpet.
Lastly, I just purchased a few furniture pads for the feet since they're rusty metal and not super friendly for hard-wood floors out of the gate.

A unique and versatile piece
It was love at first site when I saw this piece at my local anthro! I purchased it right off the floor.... saved $$ on shipping, and it was already assembled.
I plan to use it in my "girl cave" to showcase my projects and collectibles. But, I could easily see using this as a bar in the den to house liquor and vintage barware. In a casual dining room to display dishes, glassware and linens. Or, even in my daughter's bedroom to hold her clothes (in baskets), pictures, jewelry, etc.

Officially the coolest bookcase I have ever seen!!!
Thanks to a previous reviewer who suggested this as a sideboard! I purchased it for my dining room as well. Looks amazing! This piece is perfect with an eclectic mix of old and new furniture. Plus it is nice and sturdy!

Makes a nice sideboard
I splurged on this item for the dining room because it was the perfect size. It was worth it. The table isn't made to look fake-vintage, thank goodness. It's simply a sturdy, elegant, dignified, well-made thing. It's deep enough to hold a tray of wineglasses or coffee cups or a birthday cake, ... probably all three.

Great Console Table!
I received my console table yesterday and it really is exactly as pictured. I have a coordinating side table in a connecting room that I purchased from Urban and the higher quality of this console table really shows. Sturdy construction, industrial chic. Exactly what I wanted in my entryway.
Wow I'm so stoked about these stools. I struggled to find a style I liked from thirty different vendors, but everything out there just seemed like it belonged in a poser magazine kitchen. These couldn't be more perfect for me. I paired them with a cast-iron-base crank bistro table and they match beyond my wildest dreams. The teak seat itself is slightly larger than I'd pictured in my head, but that might be because I purchased the counter stools rather than the bar stools, so proportionally the seat seems larger. I will also say that the picture on Anthropologie.com shows a noticeable "bowl" to the teak seat, but my stools do not have that. They are still very comfortable (read: not dead flat) and the teak is very smooth, but there's no outer lip whatsoever to my seats. A NOTE FOR PROSPECTIVE BUYERS: the teak seats on my three stools are actually three noticeably different colors, so if you're looking for a monochromatic, identical set, this stool is not it.

This stool is made for a 42" counter, with a seat height of 29". The wood seat is both gorgeous and comfy. The legs are well designed and well made. Very sturdy. I bought some small felt pads for the legs to protect my bamboo floors. While not a bargain at almost $400 each, I believe it is a fair price for the quality. The pictures provided by Anthropologie are a good representation of the product. The dimensions have been changed in the description and now reflect the correct size.

I ordered 2 for my basement bar. Packaging/Shipping were appropriate. The stools are lovely--very sturdy, beautiful wood grain. They do not scratch my marble tile. They are exactly the advertised size. Very comfortable for me, my husband & children. Recommend without hesitation.
I bought this to go in my bedroom. It is even more gorgeous than pictured. The base wood is a little darker than pictured, but not so much that you should reconsider. This piece is very heavy, much heavier than you would think for a dresser this size. It is solidly built and I think it will last decades or more. A great family heirloom.
The inlay design is absolutely gorgeous - reminiscent of Syrian and Indian designs seen so often in magazines. The detail and craftsmanship are exquisite. It is an expensive piece, to say the least, but you absolutely get what you pay for. The measurements are accurate.
One thing I did not like: the interior of the drawers is painted brown. While the paint matches the wood, I don't understand why they covered such pretty wood. I plan to line the drawers with wallpaper or art paper to cover.
Once the drawers are removed, the dresser is much lighter, but definitely takes two strong people to move. Best to know where you want it placed when it is delivered.
Highly recommend. Looks great with white walls and bedding.

Worth every penny!
I waited and saved for three long years for this dresser and it did not disappoint! Yes, it's expensive, yes it was worth it. It looks just as it is pictured online, and it's a heavy piece. I agree with the other reviewer who commented on the painted interiors of the drawers--I don't know why they did that and I wish they hadn't, but the exterior of it more than makes up for it. It's so beautiful we couldn't hide it in our bedroom but instead put it in the living room. EVERYONE comments on it. I bought the brown and ivory colored version. I love it so much. I tell my husband every time I look at it, it makes me happy. I will have this piece for the rest of my life!

Beautiful and Unique
This Ivory Etched Dresser is a wonderful addition to our furniture collection.
I was hesitant ordering a product like this without seeing it in person but hadn't seen anything like it anywhere else and decided to go ahead and take the chance. We are very happy with this piece... It is beautiful and unique...The quality is good... It arrived fully assembled.
I definitely recommend this product.
