I love the look of this bed - it is exactly what I was looking for. I have an Asian inspired decor in my bedroom and it is absolutely perfect. I have a thick mattress so you actually don't see any of the headboard but I still love it. If the headboard was slightly taller I would love it even more but no complaints here. :)
The bed Frame is beautiful and sturdy.. However the mattress we purchased is way to thick and it dwarfs the low headboard . So sad that there is not a recommendation for mattress size on the description for the frame . That would be helpful . We were so enthusiastic to put this bed together and got rid of the boxes so now we are stuck with it ...
Agreed with the other reviews. We have a thick mattress and it covers the headboard with the pillows on top which is a shame bc this frame is so beautiful. The bed has held up well for the past six months and was a great buy. It was easy to put together. I would highly recommend it.
This was my first ever purchase from Overstock and I am very pleased. My only negative was that I was not aware of when it was going to be delivered - only a notice that it had been shipped but I had no idea of the delivery date/timeframe. (Thankfully I was home when they showed up.) It was delivered in 3 long boxes - easy to maneuver. And although the instructions say two people are required to assemble, I (a somewhat-experienced furniture assembler) was able to assemble it myself in a little over an hour. If I were to do it again, it would be easy to complete in about a half hour. I did need to make a run to the hardware store to purchase an extension piece for my drill when it came time to screw the slats in. The bed is very sturdy. I love the simpliciity of the platform frame - it was just what I was looking for.
I bought this bed for my guest bedroom, looking for something attractive, functional, and without too big of a footprint. Further, the bedroom is on the second floor of my home, up 2 flights of steps (I'm a woman who lives alone). The bed came in 3 boxes, that were all fairly large and awkward, but I was able to get each of them up all the steps on my own. Each set of components was packaged well enough that even though the boxes were reasonably banged up, all the wood panels and slats were undamaged. The instructions say to have two people put it together, but it was simple and straightforward enough that I was able to put the bed together on my own in less than 1.5 hours once fully unpacked (drill/driver was definitely was needed, but that's it). I'd stress that this is a low-profile bed, with a relatively short headboard (i.e. with a pillow-top mattress, you don't see the headboard over pillows propped upright). The frame only comes up to about mid-shin so the bed sits low to the floor and doesn't have enough clearance to really store anything underneath. The bed however is a nice looking piece of furniture and feels very strong and stable as assembled. I'd recommend this bed.
