We were torn when looking for a new bed and nervously decided on the Alsa platform bed, Queen, finally deciding to give up the traditional box spring set up. This bed is beautifully made, with a simple design. The lines are clean and the bed is very solid. It is perfect for our new home's master suite which looks out into the woods. It is exactly what I was after and I'm very pleased. Easy to put together and very sturdy.
Assembly was a no brainer. With help, it took less than one hour with a drill. All pieces arrived intact. Very sturdy, great dark wood color, perfect accent to the lighter wood tones in my room. I would definitely suggest getting the matching nightstand, you will not be disappointed.
Got this bed in 2 boxes about 3 weeks ago. We also go the 2 night matching nightstands. Took the two of us less than 2 hours to put this together. It is beautiful and sturdy. We had a drill gun so that made putting in the slats pretty quick and easy. Wish the headboard was a little bit higher, but that's just because it takes a minute to get used to platform beds I believe. Instructions are pretty straight forward. Strangely, we spent less time putting together this bed than the night stands (set with the bed) because the bed had better, clear cut instructions.
This bed was for my guest room, but I am fussy as can be when it comes to quality. I searched far and wide for a platform bed that was well made and in the price range I could afford.I don't do particle board! I have recently moved from Chicago and had to begin all over with furnishing a new place..This bed was for my guest room, which has an Asian theme. You will not be disappointed with purchasing this bed.this bed. It is attractive, well made, sturdy and the price is GREAT!! I was so happy that the nightstands (not available when I bought the bed) soon became available again and I am thrilled with those as well!
The bed arrived just a few days after ordering - 3 boxes. There was no damage to the boxes or bed and it arrived with all parts. The directions were easy to understand and I was able to put the bed together alone. The color looks just like the photos. I use a 10 inch mattress and roughly 1 inch "bunky board" and I have just a few inches of the headboard showing (works for me because I needed a bed with a lower headboard as the bed is placed in front of a window with a low sill). I would recommend using a drill to secure the slats but I did several with a screwdriver and that worked just fine.
After staying on a platform bed in Europe, my husband and I knew we wanted to get one and sleep lower to the ground. After hunting around for weeks and reading (what seemed like) hundred of reviews-- we narrowed it down to this bed. When it arrived, we were impressed by how solid and sturdy it was, and how easy it was to put together! There was no lingering odor and it's been a few months and we still love it. We have a regular mattress (12 inches high) and it covers up most of the short headboard. It's fine but we plan on updating to a 8" high mattress sometime when the budget allows it.

Bed arrived in 3 boxes and was very easy to assemble. It would be good if they told you that you had to screw the bed slats into the base, with no pilot holes, as this requires a bit of effort. The build quality of the bed is decent, especially for the price point. It doesn't squeak after having it for about 4 weeks, so thats good and exactly why i bought such a solid bed. my only issue is that the packaging that it came in was completely ridiculous; i managed to fill 7 large garbage bags full of polystyrene packaging, on top of the 3 cardboard boxes (which are easily folded and recycled). I would think in today's society, you could pack it in environmentally friendly material? other than that, top product!

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Bed is quite solid once put together, with the wood of decent quality.
Came as described. A lot of previous removes mention that the holes for the support beams aren't pre drilled into the frame. That is correct, but it is supposed to be that way. It is easy to screw them in with just a hand screw driver. I highly recommend this bed. Easy to put together in 45 minutes or less.
I'm so happy with my purchase! This was my first experience with making a major purchase from an online store, and I couldn't be happier. The bed arrived quickly and well-packaged. It was very easy to put together, and seems to be of very good quality. It's beautiful!!! I put an 11" memory foam mattress in it, which leaves some of the headboard showing. It should be noted that the headboard is rather short, and the bed itself is fairly low to the ground -- that's just the style I was looking for. I'm thrilled!
Love the bed, easy to put together. Like that it was free shipping and came when stated.

My brother put my bed together in about 45 minutes, said it was easy to assemble. Looks great and fits perfect in the slot under my windows. Got a tempurpedic mattress and had the best nights sleep ever. The finish is beautiful!!! I ordered matching dresser today cannot wait to set it next to the bed.

This was my first experience with Overstock. I read the overwhelmingly positive reviews on this bed and was not disappointed. You just aren't going to find a simple, modern looking platform bed in this price range made out of solid wood. It really looks great. I matched it up with a memory foam mattress from this site as well (the Comfort Dreams SOFT queen mattress) and it fits snugly inside this bed frame. It comes with plenty of slats, more than enough to support the heavy 11-inch foam mattress. Some would say the headboard is a little short, but I don't think so. It looks nice with the 11-inch mattress. Construction tips: -If you've built a few things before you won't have a problem putting this together, but the instructions might be a little frustrating if all you own is a screwdriver (the "instructions" are basically a few pictures). -I didn't have my drill with me, just drove the screws right in... although a drill would have sped things up by maybe 7 minutes. If you do not have a strong grip, you will definitely need a drill as it was a little tough getting them nice and tight using hand strength alone. -Once the frame is together and you begin to fasten the center bar to the outermost slats, leave them a little loose, you will need to skew the slats into a parallelogram to get them to clear the frame and lay on the rails. Once the slats are sitting on the rails you can move everyting back to make a rectangle again. Measure the slats from the end of the bed on both sides. Adjust as needed to make the entire support structure is centered in the middle of the frame. -You could just eyeball the slats, but I highly recommend you get out a tape measure and do a little math so the slats end up perfectly spaced (there is no guide or measurement for this in the instructions). Once the outermost slats are fastened, measure the space between them and divide it among the remaining slats.
