I have owned this London Fog set for 2 years now and everything looks and feels the way it did when it was delivered. The hardware is solid and the drawers slide smoothly, the wood is solid but smooth to the touch, and the two-tone on the pieces have received many compliments. They are built extremely sturdy and you can tell that weeks of careful craftsmanship was put into them. Working with the company to set up a delivery was very easy and they worked with me very well to give me a convenient delivery. If I have the opportunity, I will definitely invest in furniture from quality woods again!
