theis bed is solid wood very easy to put together and the quality is way better than expected.. solid hevay wood good support and really easy to put together... the only thing i would suggest is adding to 8 inch wooden supports at the ends of the cross beam support.. the include 2 and im sure its enough but it was simple enough to cut 2 pieces of wood the same size as the leg stands they give you and just add them to the end of the cross supprot beam with a drywall screw honestly this whole thing took 20 minutes including adding the 2 extra supports...
i can not emphasize enough how good the quality is and how solid this bed is... and how easy it was to assemble

Purchasing from Overstock was a great experience - my first time. Placed order, received confirmations, tracking info etc. Bed arrived just as Overstock stated it would. Received all parts and hardware. Assembly was very easy and took me by myself about an hour and a half to remove from boxes (3) carry upstairs from garage and assemble. I had a 2x4 so I cut and added a couple more 7" supports. We could not be happier with the purchase. The bed is solid, nice color and we love the low profile. We will definitely be making more purchases with Overstock.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Right on - very nice

Arrived within a few days. Very easy and quick to assemble with a power drill. We bought a memory foam mattress and love how one person can't feel the other moving around on the other side. makes for a good night sleep!

After having ordered and returned the Scandanavia platform bed that snapped after about 1 hour, I was sceptical about ordering yet another potential defective piece. I was pleasantly surprised to speak to a representative helping me with the return who gave me specs on the Alsa including a 3% retrun rate that was not usually for defect. It arrived and was assembled easily. I love this simple yet elegant king size bed. I am definitely going to order the rest of the matching pieces.
We just bought the whole set, the bed was among the easiest to put together, the chest and dresser required more work. It would serve you well to have a power drill, things will go a lot faster. The bed itself is very solid once installed, and looks great, the color is true to the picture.
The set is made in Malaysia and packed really really well. The instructions are very precise and the parts are labelled well.
A few of our parts got damaged during shipping but I can't say enough to praise the Overstock customer service. They promptly contacted the warehouse to ship replacements that came in a few days. I shall definitely be shopping with them over and over again.
Overall a fabulous looking set for a great price. We shopped around a lot and such contemporary sets run twice the price. Its a great deal.
We bought this bed over a week ago. The bed looks exactly as the picture shown; you wouldn't have an unexpected surprise. My husband put the bed together in less then 40 minutes. It has beautiful clean lines and symmetry to the bed. It is SOLID wood and the slats are a pine. We agree with other reviews that you will need an added support at the top of the middle slat and bottom of the middle slat for added support, but even if you don't add it doesn't change the structure of the bed. Also, the headboard is sound and solid with no movement. If your looking for a headboard that is tall this isn't your style bed. It has a very low headboard that when you put your pillows up against it you won't be able to see it. With that said its a beautiful solid bed with a great price.
The bed is very nice quality, a little better quality than the dressers that are designed to go with it, but if you get the bed, get the nightstands and dressers, all match and not just style and color, but height. The bed is quite low, the head board is only about 32 inches to the top of it. It works great for us because we put it in front of a large window and did not want it to block the view or the air flow coming in. The bed did not take long at all to put together, and one person can do it alone. It is very sturdy and does not move. We were very pleased with it.
Can I use this bed without slats or the center support? I want to get an adjustable bed, and it just needs the headboard and 3 sides, with nothing in the middlemfavila on Apr 8, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us mfavila. Modifications to the bed will void any warranty consideration. The side rails will have the rail that supports the slats attached to it and is also something to consider. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 9, 2014
Thank you for shopping with us jodir. The height is approximately 8 inches. The support for the slats is 3 inches from the top of the side rail. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 2, 2014
Approximately how long does it take to receive bed from time of order? Also, what tools do you need to assemble it?suemcgurkin on Mar 22, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us suemcgurkin. It will leave the warehouse in 1-2 business days and the rest is up to the carrier. The bed comes with an Allen wrench. You will also need a screw driver to screw in the slats. I hope this helps.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 1, 2014
Can you provide a photo of what the bed looks like without a mattress so that we can see the slats? Platform beds have different types of support and this is necessary info in making a decision on whether to order or not.rhondarhondarhonda on Jan 25, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us rhondarhondarhonda. We are sorry but we do not have a picture of the bed with the slats showing. The bed has a center bar and that has 2 legs for additional support. There are 12 slats that are screwed into the side rails. I hope this helps. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 27, 2014
Thank you for shopping with us guampurchaser. This is the only color for this bed. I will leave you a link to our king platform beds and hope you can find something suitable for you. Have a great day!

How high is the bed from the floor to the top of the sides?
My mattress is 13" deep and i'm trying to figure out how high the mattress will be once it is on the slats and also how much of the headboard will be visible. thanks in advance for your helpnicolaou5 on Jan 11, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The depth is perfect for our 14" memory foam mattress which will be fine for your 13" mattress. Approximatley 2" of the mattress sits into the frame. The headboard is not as high as we expected it to be, but is sufficient.tanyacos14 on Jan 11, 2014
this turned out to be a horrible bed!! the support boards completely broke in two different spots and now the bed is basically useless, I'm going to have to totally rebuild the inside!!luelen on Jan 12, 2014
We have a 12 inch mattress on ours and you can see the head board. We have to stack 3 pillows up on top of each other before the headboard disappears. We like the bed because the headboard still fits under our windows so the breeze is not blocked. Hope that helps.blinkon2 on Feb 28, 2014

I have a mattress-15" and want to use the low profile box spring 5" that came with it. Could this work with this bed? How much of the headboard would still be exposed if I used this?hola22 on Sep 8, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi hola22, this bed is not meant to be used with a box spring. Doing so will keep the mattress from staying securely in the bed frame and may move while using it. It may also exceed the head board, we do not recommend using a box spring even if it is a low profile. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 9, 2013
Hello, bambiatthelake. Hope your day is going well. Box dimensions are Height: 6 Width: 31 Length: 84. Thank you for shopping with us and please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.

Hello, lisaladeeda12. Hope your day is going well. In choosing a memory foam mattress, you should consider the depth of your current mattress and how the change will affect you. A thinner mattress tends to be less expensive, with the tradeoff of providing less support and not working with platform beds. In comparison, the more-expensive best foam mattresses will provide a much more supportive sleeping experience. I recommend you research this issue in order to determine which would suit your individual needs. Thank you for shopping with us and please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 18, 2013
No way, you have to buy it separately, but it's a great bed frame. Looks very nice and classy especially if you have limited space. It may seem very short at first but you'll really grow to appreciate itluelen on Aug 9, 2013
