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.
Many people prefer to buy antiques for their own use, in order to get a good standard of manufacture for a reasonable price. Even furniture from the first half of the 20th century, before the use of particle board became widespread, can be of good quality and good value.
