We just received the headboard and frame last week and really love it. The headboard is a darker gray, the picture online looks like a pale gray and I would say it's more of a banker's gray - but very nice. The frame and headboard seem very sturdy and solid. Headboard has some padding so it's comfortable leaning against it. I had been looking for a new frame and headboard for a while and this is a great price for the quality. My husband put it together by himself and had no troulble at all - had it together in under an hour.
I spent a couple of months searching for an upholstered king size bed. Was very reluctent to order on line. Recieved this yesterday, it is better than I could have imagined. My husband was very impressed with the sturdy, well built frame. We put a finished board over the slats for more support, as we were not putting any box spring under the mattress. Great nights sleep!! It's beautiful, the fabric is a true gray linen and the nail heads are silver, which was one of my priorities as I have silver lamps, curtain rods and draw pulls. Love it, thanks Overstock, more than worth the price.
This bed makes a grand statement in our master bedroom! We love the quality, color and design of this platform bed. We have a 14 inch memory foam mattress on the bed and it is HEAVEN! I would highly recommend this bed to anyone a great investment that we will enjoy for years to come!
Believe it or not, I actually LIKE putting together furniture, but this bed made me rethink that. For the first time ever, a part was missing. And it wasn't a part listed on the assembly instructions. The factory had predrilled some holes and then inserted threaded sleeves into all but one of the holes. Of course the bolt that's supposed to fit into that hole doesn't, because without the inserted sleeve the hole is too big. I have to wait 2-3 business days for the specialized parts department to contact me and I've been told it will take another 3-5 business days after that to receive the part. I decided to finish assembling the bed while waiting for the part, just being careful not to put any weight on that corner until the part arrives. The wood slats were an absolute pain to insert into the plastic sleeves due to the sleeves being a concave shape. And according to the directions I should have been able to just push the sleeves into the predrilled holes, hmmm, NO. I needed a hammer to tap them in. But once the slats are in that bed is very sturdy. You really don't need a box spring. It wasn't clear in the instructions as to the correct way the feet are attached to the footboard and headboard. The feet have 3 angled sides and one straight, after much fiddling and going back later and redoing the feet after the rest of the bed was assembled, I can say, put the feet on with the straight side facing the outside corners of the bed. After assembling the darn thing, I realized there is a dark vertical stripe on the headboard. It can only be seen straight on and then very obvious, but from any other angle it disappears. Because I had the whole thing finished by that time and I was tired and ready for bed, I made up the bed. Pillows basically cover the flawed material, so I've decided that I can live with it. The color as mentioned in previous reviews is definitely darker than photographed, it's a medium charcoal gray, with a slight greenish cast in incandescent light. The bed took me 3.5 hours to assemble (by myself - I'm a small, but strong female), and that includes the 45 mins I spent trying to explain the missing part to customer service.
I had been eyeing this bed for a while, but wasn't sure on the fabric color. It was hard to tell on the website. Delivery was prompt to the local agent, but took an additional 2.5 weeks for them to deliver to my house because they were backed up from the snow storms (Not Overstock's fault). The color I would say is close to the online image: Gray, it is a blend of linen like gray threads with a little bit of white and charcoal in the mix. Overall, it's a kind of gray with a very slight hint of blueish/green to it. Came in two large boxes, and luckily no damages. Does not need a boxspring, but I did add a bunky board for more stability and mattress protection. Only had it for a month, so lets hope it stays sturdy and strong!
This product arrived damaged but I cannot say enough about the Customer Service of Overstock. Every time I have called a representative answers the phone within 1 minute! A real person within a minute! All representatives have been professional, courteous and answered all of my questions thoroughly. Overstock resolved the issue of the damaged product quickly and effectively with NO hassle at all! Because of their excellent customer service I will continue to frequent their website and highly recommend it.
The fabric of this bed is a beautiful medium-gray linen. The bed is solid, sturdy and relatively easy to put together--one person can do it. The pewter tack detailing on the headboard is stunning. We were going to purchase a similar bed from a retail store that cost twice as much as this one--but then we found this on Overstock. The quality is as good as the higher priced one.
The bed itself is fine. It was easy to build and came with all the parts and works like it is supposed to. BUT, if you want a grey bed, DO NOT BUY THIS ONE. Repeat. DO NOT BUY THIS ONE> it is GREEN. Yes, green! Like in the aqua family. Even at first glance and far away, it is still green. It is not at all in the grey family and I am not kidding. If you want a green bed, then definitely buy this and you will be happy. I had bedding already purchased in the grey family and had to return it because it looked ridiculous. Can't return the bed because it's too expensive so had to return the bedding and go for beige and now will consider this my least favorite bedroom of the house...
We purchased this bed for our daughter thinking for $***not to expect much. It took a little bit of time to put together however, it is solid and sturdy. We were pleasantly surprised how well it was made for the value. Also, the color is darker than shown online (which she was happy about).
Love my new bed! It looks exactly like in the picture. My friend and I put this bed together in less than 2 hours (we are two girls with limited furniture building experience with a glass of wine...). Instructions are easy to follow. It looks way more expensive than it actually costs. No issue with delivery at all.
