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.
I will personally recommend that you should check on the designs before making a purchase, because a check is required for the performance of the runners and the grasp of the handles and the style.
Many people believe that when it comes to quality you cant beat an Antique Chest of Drawers. These will usually be hand made, using traditional woodworking joints such as dovetails and using a good quality wood. These woods are very expensive these days, or in some cases are a protected species and banned from being imported.
