It's almost perfect.... [...] The glitches started with assembly. A few screws were missing as well as most of the plastic do-dads that cover/hide screws. Also, the holes were drilled in the wrong spot on the h-foot part of bed. We were able to remedy by re-drilling, but it took a while to figure out exactly what was amiss. The end result though is fabulous and I'm so glad to be rid of my old bed which had and iron footboard.
Good value for money, Sturdy product. I was willing to spend about twice as much on a bed but this best-suited my design requirements (storage, low profile, minimalist) so I was happy to try it out. My greatest source of enthusiasm about this product is actually the customer service that came along with it. The product was damaged in shipping (not this company's fault - it was well packed) but I was impatient and willing to assemble with the cracked and broken components. Over only a couple of emails, I was issued a very reasonable partial refund and the bed is still holding together just fine. I'm really happy with my experience with this company and would strongly recommend them.
Tough work, but good product. Some of the edges had some minimal paint coming off, but they provide a matching color marker for a quick fix. Door hinges were a pain in the --- to put on, be prepared. I put this together myself in about 2 hours, unboxing to finish. The package is 106 pounds, and dragging the cumbersome package up two flights of stairs alone is not pleasant, recommend a two person operation, carrying and assembling.
Solid desk with style. This desk has a slim desing and from the side looks like a piece of fine furniture. The assembly allows for a solid finished product, and the finish gives it a high end look. It is also worth pointing out that you have the option while assembling to put the drawers on the left or right side. I'm happy with this purchase. Same desk at a high end metro store costs $200 more.
Hard to assemble. This desk took me 3 days to assemble. I often purchase and assemble furniture myself but this was very complicated. The pieces were very heavy which is good once assembled but makes assembly challenging. I had to ask for help which I prefer not to. It does look nice in my home office and is the right size.
Good Dresser. I got this dresser for my four-year old brother for Christmas. It looks great in his room and he really likes it. The color is perfect and while it works in a little kid's room I don't think it will ever look too young for him. I think he'll be happy to keep it for quite a long time.It got a little banged up in transit and came with about a thumb-sized dent that is, unfortunately, right neat the front of the dresser's top. But besides that looks great. [...]

In 1940 Eugène Laflamme established South Shore Industries by buying a bankrupt wooden toy manufacturing business previously owned by Pierre and Jean de Ste-Croix-de-Lotbinière. Understanding the seasonal nature of the toy business, South Shore diversified production to include kitchen tables and chairs. The factory was rebuilt on the original site in 1941 and again in 1951 after it was damaged by fire. When the wooden furniture market suffered with the appearance of Chrome furniture in 1952, South Shore expanded its product range to include bedroom furnishings.
In 1970 Guy Laflamme succeeded his father as managing director and expanded the existing production at the Ste-Croix factory by incorporating Morrissette et frères. In 1978 South Shore was joined by J.W. Kilgour Ltd. of Coaticook. Over the years all 3 factories have undergone several phases of investment and expansion to make South Shore Industries Ltd. what it is today.
Jean Laflamme joined the company in 1986 and Guy Laflamme designated him President in 1999 while maintaining the position of President of the Board of Directors. Jean Laflamme represents the third generation at the head of South Shore Industries Ltd.
