This is a great find on Overstock.com. I'm redoing my bedroom and didn't want to spend a fortune on a new bed, but definitely wanted something simple and really nice. I feel like I hit the jackpot. This bed looks so much more expensive than it is. It sits very low to the ground and has a very cool zen vibe about it. The wood is a dark, rich, beautiful color and is shockingly sturdy. I couldn't believe that something that came to me in 3 boxes is as rock solid as it is. As a moderately handy girl, I was able to put this bed together in about an hour. People that really know what they're doing will probably have it together in about half that time. I did buy a bunky board to support my mattress. The planks are very sturdy and solid, but I personally just wanted the extra support for my bed. The only downside is that the top piece of the footboard was broken off from the main piece when I opened the box. It's the same complaint that a lot of other people have mentioned in their reviews, so it must be a problem in the original packing. In the meantime, I've attached it to the bed as-is, but customer support was on top of the situation immediately and are sending me a replacement footboard that will take about 5 minutes to swap out. No biggie. LOVE my bed and have been incredibly impressed with Overstock's customer service department.

I bought this bed, nightstands and dresser. Overall it is a great set and it looks much better than it does in the picture. The bed was easy to assemble, the only problem is that the bed needs a lower mattress because the headboard is not very high. With a mattress more than 8 inches there is really not much of the headboard that you can see. Otherwise it is a comfortable and stylish looking bed, especially if you prefer low beds.
The dresser and nightstand also look great, but are a pain to put together and the instructions are really bad. I made a mistake putting a nightstand together but once I got the hang of it, the other one and the dresser were not a problem even thought the dresser required a lot of energy to assemble. After all the work, it looks like a great set and I'm very pleased with it. Also, the delivery was quick and efficient.
My husband and I had been searching for the perfect platform bed for a long time. Everything we found was either too expensive, not the right color, too boring, to embellished, etc. This bed was the perfect balance for us - a nice dark color (but not black or espresso), simple & clean lines (but not boring), and a great price. We also wanted a bed where the mattress sat "in" the frame as opposed to just "on" the frame. Our only negative comment - the assembly was a little difficult as the instructions were vague and there were no pre-drilled holes for the slats that go under the mattress. We had to measure and mark them all out, and it would have been impossible to screw them in without a drill.

Love the bed frame. Easy to assemble. Looks great. Feels sturdy. However the wood trim on the top foot of the board was separated (on the end) from the main plank of wood when I opened it. I had a friend fix it for me instead of dealing with the hassel of sending it back... I knocked off a star on the review because of this defect...
This bed is just what we were looking for. We use it as a platform bed (no box spring). With our new mattress (14 inches high), the bed is a perfect height and very comfortable. Overstock provided excellent and fast service - we couldn't be more satisfied.
I am impressed with the whole process from ordering to installation.
Package arrived quickly and was well packed.
bed was a cinch to put together. Did it myself in under an hour.
very happy with this well made bed.
Thank You Overstock. Thank you Malaysian company that made bed.
Good Job! :)
It's a great quality item for the price. I have been Looking for a platform bed for months. Went To several furniture stores...minimum 700 for anything remotely close to this style and quality. Would highly recommend. Putting together a breeze...but.. use a cordless screw driver for slats.... otherwise ENJOY!!!!!!
My husband really wanted a platform frame, but there weren't any in the area in which we live. I was leery of ordering one online because I knew that we would have to put it together ourselves. I also assumed the shipping would be horrifying. However, the shipping was minimal, and the bed frame was actually *extremely* easy to put together ourselves. We love our new platform bed. One of my favorite parts is that because it's just the mattress it doesn't really squeak. I would absolutely recommend this frame if you're looking for a platform bed.
This bed frame at first glance was very nice, sturdy construction and heavy. The major issue that exists is in the slat system. The frame is heavy and sturdy but the slats are poorly made and too flexible. The real issue though is that the center slat is not connected to anything. Included with the slats are 2 posts that go underneath the middle slat to stabilize it. This is great but they only have 2 of these posts. The head and foot of the bed are unsupported and therefore sink in when you are laying in the bed. I woke up after the first night with this bed with a stiff back and neck. Not good. I went to the hardware store and bought some posts and installed them myself. The fact that these are not included and that they need to be added is silly and a serious design overlook. Not what I expected for the price.
Hi, I have a memory foam mattress on top of a boxspring: if I decide to keep using the boxspring can I do so? If yes, I guess the slats are not installed and the boxspring rests on the floor, is this correct? thanksffbkn on Mar 13, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This QuestionThere are no answers to this question yet, be the first to answer it.

Hello michhonea, I would recommend the Vilas 1-drawer Nightstand Item #: 12704068. It has a similar finish and would coordinate well with this bed. It is also 24 inches in height. I hope this helps. Thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 20, 2013
How far does the headboard extend past the side rails? I would like to buy two nightstands but they will have to tuck in right against the side rail like the picture shows. The listing says the bed is 66" wide but that must be including the full width of the headboard.michhonea on Jun 11, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The headboard and outer rails are flush... The bed is 66" wide everywhere, the headboard is NOT wider than the outsides of the rails. A queen mattress is 60", so the rails take up an additional 3 inches on each side.tunacrab on Jun 12, 2013
Do the nightstands come flush with the side rails and against the side of the headboard? In the picture it looks almost like they are in front of the headboard.michhonea on Jun 12, 2013
I didn't get the nightstand... but it is not in front of the head board, it's just the angle of the picture. Again, I assure you the edge of the bed/rails/headboard is a flush, flat plane.tunacrab on Jun 12, 2013
