I've built plenty of furniture out of pine. It's all been thrown out within 5yrs. BUT, it's been in active households.
My comment had nothing to do with your build design, more so the material. Pine is very soft and why it is not suited for furniture. It dents and dings very easily.
Your build is nice and I'm glad it's taught you new techniques, but hardwood would've been much more appropriate for such a nice piece.
