I would recommend this bed to a friend without reservation. If the friend were to see the bed, that friend would want one! Thankfully, had two painters working at my house when the bed arrived and paid them to assemble it. Thus, can't attest to ease of assembly--something I'm not good at. Some earlier reviews talked about not liking having some space between the end of the mattress and the footboard. That's a feature I enjoy; it makes changing bed lines and making the bed far easier!
Looks fantastic; and provides a great night's sleep. My only slight gripe is that the part of the bed connected to headboard groans at times. Definitely need two people to assemble, but it was relatively easy to do once we got the hang of it. Totally worth the money.
Very well packaged and complete. There are lots of parts, but they are well labeled. The needed tools are included, but they are "mini" sized. They will work fine, but you may prefer to use your own full size tools. The bed is a bit long as other reviews state, but with duvets or quilts it looks just fine. The color is more of a black/rust, also as noted in other reviews. It is helpful to have two people to assemble but not essential. I am really pleased with the bed and feel,it's a great value.
This was my first wrought iron bed purchase as well as my first time purchasing a piece of furniture online. I was a bit nervous, but am so glad I took a chance. The bed is very stylish, sturdy, and was very easy to assemble. It looks great in our guestroom!!
This bed is very sturdy and the style is versatile. It was easy to assemble. It was purchased for a guest bedroom, but I would recommend it for everyday use. It is a dark rich brown/black color so it mixes well with any style or color. I did some research to see what styles are popular with the high end retailers before I settled on it. I am thrilled to have a bed that was inexpensive but looks like it could have come from ** or **. Don't hesitate at all if you're looking for a bed like this.
I am a 73 yr old woman who is not an expert on appliance assemblage. I bought this bed, and basically I like it a lot. It is a dark chocolate color and looks great, is sturdy and has clear directions for assembling. I am very pleased with this bed. I strongly urge you to have someone help you put it together because it requires two people to hold the various parts together to attach. I did it alone with piles of books to align the rails with the front and back pieces but it took most of the day. With two, it would be done in much less time. I also suggest identifying and counting each piece of hardware. There are four different sizes of allen screws and it is easy to confuse them. I put in the large screws where medium should go and had to remove them. (this was not a serious problem since I could exchange them one at a time, but it took a few minutes.) I also ended up short two hex nuts. (likely they disappeared in the packaging or I will find them one of these days.). Suggest you count every nut and bolt since there are lot of them. I finally held the final screw in place with duct tape which was a desperation measure. But, all in all, the bed looks great and I am very pleased. No squeaks and I believe it will hold, duct tape and all.
Easy to understand directions and everything fit as it was supposed to, this made assembly easy. I'm happy with the looks, color is as described, fits nicely with my antique furniture. Had harder time cutting up all the cardboard and Styrofoam than setting up the bed. This was my 1st big purchase from Overstock and am pleased with the service and the speed of delivery, I will buy from them again.
Bought this for MBR at new lake house. Husband helped carry heavy cartons, but I assembled the bed myself without any significant problems. We get compliments on the bed and have enjoyed having a queen sized bed after 40 years of sharing a double at home. Frame is long and wide for the queen mattress set, but it's not a problem in appearance or function. Lightening fast shipping. It will be an heirloom someday. Very glad of choice. Have recommended Overstock to friends since purchase.
Some reviews I read before I purchased this bed stated that the color was not matte black- my bed frame is matte black and I am very pleased with the design, the sturdiness, the ease of assembly. All the parts were present and well-wrapped.The bed arrived in a timely fashion and looks wonderful with my antique ebonized ******** furniture. I am very pleased!
This is a great bed at a fraction of what you would pay to get this look somewhere else. It is not iron, it's hollow metal, but that's OK for me because it makes it easier to move. It was easy to put together and it looks like I bought it at a certain expensive store that I can't afford. Love this bed.
I ordered my bed last May and I just opened it last January. I found out that the hardware were not complete. I called up Overstock about it and they made sure that they will send the missing hardware. The overstock.com didn't disappoint me. I am truly pleased. The bed is easy to assemble and very sturdy. ( Assemble by myself 40 minutes ). I love it. The bed frame is little bit larger than the queen size mattress but it works perfectly. You can put the bed sheet easily. Your hands doesn't need to squeeze between the mattress and the bed frame. Again, I am very satisfied.
My 5th grader's bed is also our guest bed, a queen. The metal frame was falling apart (after 22 years). I looked at just metal frames and for not much more, saw this bed. It arrived as they said. My 5th grader and I put it together in less than 2 hours, and that included hauling out the old frame. All the tools came with it. Instructions were easy to follow. For the price, in is as good as anything I have seen in stores for 2-3x the price.
This is a really nice bed for a guest room. It seems to hold up well to infrequent use but I don't think it would do well with heavy use. The mattress fits but there is a lot of extra room at the foot of the bed. I sat on the end too close to the foot and the top of the mattress near the head lifted up. I love the style but wouldn't use it in my master because of the doubts I have about its durability over time.
Read all of the reviews, expected the color variation, was only surprised that it stood up to the glowing reveiws. It is GREAT for this price, it is Great for just about any price. Cannot say enough good things, very, very sturdy bed, and I weigh 375 pounds and it never creaks. The look is great, the overall quality is wonderful, the finish is excellent, the feel of quality to your hands when you touch it is all there. Buy now before they are gone!!!
