I remember having problems with a modern made chest of drawers of the particle board construction. The drawers kept sticking and jumping out of the runners, and when I eventually managed to open them they would not close, then the flimsy bottoms fell out of the drawers as well. After that annoying experience I decided to only buy good quality chests of drawers.
This particular style of chest of drawers is constructed on legs. Because of this design technique, there ends up being additional space below the chest of drawers itself that otherwise would have gone to waste.
Reasonably well made and expensive pieces have been produced over the years by top name manufacturers using these two types of material. However, when the purchaser tries to resell them, they find they have little resale value, if they can sell them at all.
