I was a little skeptical about ordering a bed online but went for it. I am not disappointed. This bed is everything everyone said. It is sturdy, beautiful and a great buy. The frame doesn't move when jostled by my children. It doesn't feel cheap either. A very nice, sturdy bed for your money. The color is more of a dark rubbed bronze than black though.
I bout this bed frame about a year ago and it's been amazing. It's has a very sturdy construction, was fairly easy to assemble and looks great! The color is more of a dark dark brown than black, but looks amazing. I have recommended this bed frame to all of my friends.
This bed is not only a great value for the price, but it's also a great bed. I was very nervous about ordering it online, and this was my first purchase from Overstock.com. I was very happy when it arrived. It's heavy and sturdy. It took me about 1 hour to assemble by myself. The color is not a true black, but more of a dark brown or dark bronze. I would definitely recommend this bed and will buy from Overstock.com again!
I bought an entire houseful of new furniture for our new home and searched over a dozen furniture stores for a new iron bed for the guestroom, which I decorated with antiques. I couldn't beat this deal anywhere! This bed is beautiful, solid and so sturdy! Even the beds at some of the nice furniture stores felt wobbly compared to this one. Color is a very rich dark chocolate and works great with antique decor. This bed will go with any decor for man, woman or child. Quality and appearance exceeded my expectations. Shop around and be prepared to waste your time because you can not beat this deal!
Easy set up - I was able to do it myself. Bed looks great and is very sturdy. It is more dark dark brown than black but with a nice matte finish. I was looking for something that wasn't brass and shiny. The only issue I have is that some of the screw heads are easy to see after assembly, but for the price, I can live with that! Shipping was right on time.
I bought this as a gift for my daughter in her new apartment. It has a great finish on it and looks beautiful. There was only one problem--some of the nuts were missing, so when her fiance was putting it together he had to go out and buy replacements. Other than that it was a great buy!
An excellent value for the money. I've had my eye on an iron and brass bed for a long time but the $1600.00 price tag does not fit in my budget. I found this bed on Overstock and after reading over the reviews decided it would be a good alternative giving me the look I want without the cost. Even though it is of hollow tube construction, it is very sturdy. The flat finish is very attractive. Not cheesy at all. Very satisfied.
We needed a bed for a city apartment but didn't want to spend a fortune. On a whim I searched overstock.com and found the Austen queen size bed frame. It was exactly what I was looking for, at price I couldn't resist, and a STEAL on the Shipping. I ordered it, it was delivered within a week and we've been sleeping comfortably since. The only negative is I thought it might be made of a heavier weight material, other then that the finish is and construction are very nice! I'll be a regular shopper at Overstock.com!
This bed looks beautiful in my daughter's newly redecorated room. My sister and I had no problem putting together the bed. It was packaged well, with no damage from shipping. After reading other reviews, I was prepared for a more brown than black color, and I would agree that it is not black. Even though the rest of the room is in black and white, it fits in wonderfully. I would definitely purchase this bed again.
We received the Austen QS Bed a couple of weeks ago. Bed was delivered within a week of the order. Assembly was relatively easy -- all parts were present and went together as per the instructions. The assembled bed is very attractive and as represented on the web. The bed is extremely sturdy and solid. This is the second metal bed purchase that we've made from Overstock and we could not be happier with the quality of both and the value cannot be beat! I would highly recommend this product to anyone interested in it.
We are very happy with our decision to purchase the Austen Queen-size Bed from Overstock.com. The price was very competitive, especially when considering the shipping cost (only $1 or $2 if I remember correctly). The construction was solid for a hollow tube bed. The packaging was very good; thin Styrofoam tape covered all decorative joints. The only problem with shipping was that the two parallel bars from the foot of the bed were bent inward in shipment. However, a little brute strength brought the two bars back into parallel. The bed is elegant with its black Victorian design. The head board and foot board bolt directly to the side rails instead of using the old quick-release slot and groove construction, but the fact that it bolts together makes the bed VERY STURDY. I was really impressed with how solid this bed was. In short, I'd buy this bed again in a heartbeat. I'm very happy with it.
I bought this bed for my bedroom. My husband put it together in about an hour and half by himself and he said it wasn't too hard. The color....dark brown, is perfect and goes with almost any decor. I have a lot of reds and yellows in my room so it fits in great! I have an olympic queen size bed which has a platform on top of the box spring. I was afraid the bed would stick out past the headboard and footboard of the bed as an olympic queen is six inches wider than a standard queen. Actually, the bed and platform just meet the footboard and headaboard in width, so I was very pleased with it overall. I've bought stuff from Overstock in the past and have always been pleased. This was one of the best things I've every bought from Overstock and I just love the way it looks in my bedroom. It's sturdy, but not overly pretentious like some metal beds can be. A great buy and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone!
