  • alexandra

    the eek dresser is still in stock at several stores. i’m not sure if you mean they’ve stopped producing it but i checked with a few and they can be found if anyone would like one :)


  • Love your guides. Is the table lamp guide back up and running yet? My favorite one from Crate and Barrel broke and is no longer available. I need some ideas!

  • oh man, i just saw a dorothy draper dresser on craigslist yesterday! Not quite as beautiful as the one from 1st dibs, but who’s picky?

    ps LOVE the silver steamer trunk chest… so unique. I’d put that in a guest room with a round porthole mirror :)

  • grace, thank you so much for the wonderful list. i don’t even know where to start! you’re amazing!

  • I love this list and I was even more suprised to see my dresser on it. Even though it is the hermes dresser from ikea! It is a great dresser and holds all of mine and my husbands stuff…I can’t wait until I can afford the stripe chest…thanks grace

  • grace – another amazing guide! so many gorgeous options (must have that brocade dresser!). i have the hemnes dresser and it is SUCH A STEAL! its gorgeous and substantial. whenever someone asks, they can’t believe its from IKEA. Its a great “high-boy”-ish height and it has super-deep drawers.

  • do not buy the cb2 true low dresser! i ordered two. one was never assembled due to missing and damaged parts. when i put the second one together, none of the drawers lined up evenly and the pulls are screwed together from 3 different pieces! you are better off with a cheap piece from ikea!

  • wow, it’s like you read my mind. we really need to replace the white wicker furniture (ugh!) we’ve had since we were married and were kind of lost. thanks so much for this comprehensive list!

  • wow — you read my mind too!! hubby and i just moved into our new place, and we don’t have anything to put our clothes in! they’re just sitting in boxes and suitcases. LOL… this helped a lot. thanks!

  • Have LOVED the eek dresser since the moment I saw in a magazine about two years ago. I thought it was more in the $4000 range??
    Love this wealthy list. Thanks!!

  • I am just stumbling across this post now and I love the amazing list! I have eyed the Creme de la Creme from Wisteria for a while, but unfortunately sat on it too long and it’s no longer available. Any suggestions on an antique inspired dresser that is less than 20″ in depth?
