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 love the style of this platform bed frame; I bought a memory foam mattress for it (from "O" as well); a friend who had lots of experience putting together bed frames, put this together for me and it took him less than an hour. It's very sturdy and the wood is very nice. I plan to order a full size frame and memory foam mattress of the same brands for my guest cabin.
WHAT WAS GREAT:
1) Shipping was very fast. Arrived in days.
2) The price was really, really affordable compared to similar beds I viewed at other vendors
3) The bed feels very strong and sturdy, not that I would recommend jumping on it on a daily basis.
4) The quality of wood seems excellent, all the pieces look straight and it's real wood, not composite underneath.
5) The color is nice (even though it was a little lighter than pictured)
6) It took only about 2 hours to put together (I did it mostly on my own), instructions are very simple
WHAT WAS KIND OF ANNOYING:
1) It came in 3 boxes packed with styrofoam. I understand that it needs to be protected but I hate styrofoam.
2) The places where you have to drill the slats in are NOT marked or pre-drilled, so we had to measure it ourselves (this was the most time-consuming)
3) Other reviewers have said this but you don't realize how low to the ground this is versus a "traditional" bed. I think the 28" listed in the description may be wrong. I don't mind how low it is but some people may hate that.
4) The headboard could benefit from being about 6 inches higher. Our pillows nearly cover it up.
Overall, we're happy with the bed. It's definitely a good value and better than what you would get from most stores.
It seems there are some discrepancies between the answers here and on the full bed. I assume that the answers in terms of mattress depth area / height of side board / inches from side board to top of head board should be the same. But the answer for the full bed state that the indentation of the mattress area is 6", while here the answer was 3 3/4". Additionally, the answer in here claims that it is 15" from the SLATS (not the top of the side railing) to the top of the bed. In the full bed, the answer is that the top of the side railing is 11" from the floor, which would provide 17" from the top of the RAILING to the top of the head board (meaning closer to 20-22" from the very bottom of the mattress to the very top of the headboard.
Now that I've confused everyone, can I please get 2 distance measurements from someone who is looking at this thing right now? Here are my requests:
1. Length from the top of the side railing (the part that I can clearly see in the picture) down to the top of an inserted slat? I'm guessing somewhere in the 3-6" range.
2. Length from the floor to the top of the side railing (the full bed mentioned around 11-12" I believe.
This makes a big difference as to whether or not I get a bunkie board, thin box spring, no box spring, etc.
Or, can anyone who has this set up tell me what size mattress/box spring/bunkie board you're using...and how much room exactly is from the top of your mattress up to the top of your head board?
Thanks so much! I assure you when I set up my bed I will return here and update every answer with an exact measurement...craigsan18 on Jul 5, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

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 Question

What is the measurement from the slats (that the mattress sits on) to the top of the 28'' headboard? I have an 8'' mattress and I'm trying to figure out how far up it would come up the headboard.lidiajacy on Nov 17, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello lidiajacy, On the Alsa Queen Platform Bed the measurement from the slats (that the mattress sits on) to the top of the 28 inches headboard is approx 15 inches. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions. Thank you for shopping with us!

Overstockcustomercare1 (or anyone else):
Please see my question dated 5 July 2014 about this answer. This is confusing because I've seen answers that the mattress is 8" off the floor. If that's the case, then there should be roughly 20" from the slats to the top of a 28" headboard (minus the thickness of the slats, of course). The picture would seem to indicate there is more than 15" as well.craigsan18 on Jul 5, 2014
