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
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? perfect match
Please tell us about the quality of the product. better than expected
How accurate was the on site description of the product? very good description
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
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good quaility, Solid bed, No squeaks

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!

I bought this bed for our master bedroom. I prefer a lower platform style so that my aging dog can jump up onto the bed. We have a Tempurpedic mattress. We do not use the foundation, but instead placed a piece of plywood on the frame to substitute for the foundation. I needed a shorter head board as I am forced to arrange my bedroom such that the bed is against a window. I did not want the headboard to block the light. It is perfect for this. The material is solid wood and very sturdy. Assembly was easy and straightforward. The hardware connecting the pieces was very easy to connect. The bed comes with 12 slats, but clearly is designed for use with a box spring. If you are using a foam mattress without a foundation, I highly suggest using a piece of plywood, cut to fit the frame.
Okay, finally put this bed together and it is surprisingly sturdy.
I'd like to point out that Overstock had promised this product within 3 days but I got it within 6. A bit of a let down but it came safe and sound in 3 boxes. There are 12 slats, a long center slat, the headboard (quite short, but that's what we wanted), and two sides.
It's solid wood for sure.
Putting the bed together is not tough but can be difficult and I can see why some owners have had bad results with the bed. The slats are not linked together with cloth like my previous bed, so it makes it really hard to get the right spacing. The 2 supports (side legs) for the slats on the are not pre-drilled, so again measuring is done either with your eye, or using equipment. The slats are pre-drilled though (less one in my order, not sure why).
With regards to the bit, the "bit" screw driver that comes pack with the screws, it does not have a support handle, making it hard to impossible, to screw the main bits down securely. This is critical.
It looks like one of these: ***
Okay think about this for a second, if you don't have a bit handle to go with the bit screw driver, you are SOL in terms of properly tightening down the bed.
I remember that I had supplied handle that came with *** Bit from a while back in my tool bag. Lucky me. This helped greatly. If you have a professional bit driver that would be even better IMO.
First, night. No creeks or squeaks. Same on the second night also. The bed holds my Slumber Solution 14 Gel Top (which is recorded at 100+ lbs) plus me (195). An Overstock rep told me that the frame holds up to 2000 ILBs max but I'm not king to verify that.
I think if your weight, combined with your mattress hits 400+ lbs, you should probably consider putting two additional support legs under the main beam / slat in the front and back. The positioning of the default legs under the long slat seem questionable for higher levels of support IMO.
Great Bed! Easy to assemble. Looks great with the Vilas nightstands and dresser too. I ordered a king 13" gel foam mattress and it fits in this frame perfectly with no box springs. The slats hold it in place perfectly. I see others on here needed to add more slats but I have not seen the need for that yet. The mattress has not sagged at all (***). Very happy with this. Please note that the headboard is not visible when the bed is made with all the pillows, so if you want to see the headboard, I recommend the Vilas platform bed instead.
I rely a lot on reviews. I like it when there are lots of them and try to sift through the bad apples or lemons and try to find the real problems with
products by finding common complaints. I wanted to quickly review this bed to let anyone know who is looking for a wooden, King size platform bed to look no further! The bed I received is amazingly sturdy and for the price is a steal. I read some complaints about the lack of bottom slats. Not so in my case. Everything is perfect. It took me about 30 minutes to set it up. I LOVE it!
I bought the Alsa bed 3 years ago in Queen. I've moved and put this in my guest bedroom. I was shopping for a King for the master bedroom and couldn't find anything I liked better than my Alsa so I purchased it again. Beautiful bed!
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
If the adjustable bed has its own support legs yes.wvwc on Jun 26, 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.
overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 8, 2013
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
