The item is a real "WOW!". It is easy to put together and a real show-stopper. I ordered it for my guest bedroom and would love to stay there myself as it is so beautiful. The delivery service- **** ******- is terrible. I ordered this in early December and I didn't receive it until after Christmas because it went to another state with the same city name. I continued to receive the same voice message that it was being delivered, even after the "live" person told me it would not be delivered on the date the voice mail said because it was not even close to my town. All I can say it was a good thing I did not count on it for guests for Christmas.
We looked at beds in a lot of furniture stores and didn't find anything we liked that seemed worth the price. When we saw this bed on Overstock, we were worried about buying it sight unseen, but the reviews were all so good that we decided to risk it. We LOVE the bed. It's easy to assemble if you have two people. Just be sure to notice that some of the screws are a teensy bit longer than most of the screws, and you'll need the longer ones at the very last. The bed is sturdy and looks absolutely wonderful. As others have noted, it is a little roomy for the mattress length-wise (we have a queen), but we put a couple of pillows behind the mattress at the head of the bed, and that fixed the (minor) issue. We highly recommend this bed.
This bed is not only beautiful but it is sturdy and of heirloom quality. I did not expect the wonderful delivery service I got. Not only did they put the bed together for me but they hauled away the boxes too!. I bought it knowing I could not use a bed skirt with it but was pleasantly surprised to find that I could because my boxspring is high enough and the skirt is split at the corners. I am not sure I will use the skirt because I don't want to cover up the beautiful siderails! I had seen this bed at a higher price elsewhere online. I feel I got the best deal.
I have been a long time Overstock customer and have never had a reason or need to write bad or negative review about their products until now. l was extremely disappointed at at recently purchased of a Queen size Baroque bed from Overstock. First of all, l ordered a Baroque Queen size bed but for some odd reason, they delivered to my home a kid over size truck which l did not ordered. I immediately called Overstock and they assured me that the right product will be resend to me, l had to wait another week for the right product to be delivered. Anyhow, the bed came and sure enough again all the right item was not included in the package, what was show on the picture that pertain to the bed head board standing pole is not exactly was what shown on Overstock and the color was darker bronze with touch of gold, totally way different from the picture. I was very disappointed, l called them again and am sad to say again that the problem has not be resolve yet. The design of bed its self is beautiful and little sturdy but just not what was shown that l received(very misleading). So please people be alert to what is been deliver to you.
Do not rely on the color in the web photo. It is dark bronze with a slight touch of gold on the edges in just some places. Blue colors inside some of the scroll work. Very impressive bed as it stands all together. Very hard to assemble. Took an hour just to pull out of the four boxes it was shipped in. Took another hour at least to put it into one piece. We could not use white glove delivery. Worth it. Love this bed
Love the piece and it casme promptly and seems well made. There was damage to the headboard but in an area that is covered by the headboard so I chose to just keep it. The box was very damaged when received AND this same thing was mentioned in other evaluations so it seems standard practice. Too bad, I assumed that it was an unusual occurance but when mine arrived the same way it did make me leary to order again. Like I stated already though, I do like the bed and am very happy that the damage was minimal.
I never ordered furniture over the internet so I really didn't know what to expect!!! To my surprise this bed is gorgeous and so well made. I love it and feel like a princess in it. My son came and put it together with no problem at all. I am thrilled with this bed.
So I find out that Overstockt.com uses a 2nd party vendor to deliver to the customers home. There was a delay in the 2nd party shipper receiving the item. One day prior to delivery I talk to the 2nd party delivery party and they agreed to call me 1 hour prior to arrival. I get a phone call from the driver saying he is at my house and no one is answering the door. Well if the driver called 1 hour prior to his arrival, someone would have been at my house. So now the 2nd party delivery company is telling me it can be up to 3 days because I was not home to receive the item on the scheduled delivery day. So much of a hassle to buy this bed. If I knew it was going to be this big of a hassle I would have NOT bought it. Most online company's use FedEx or UPS to deliver parcel packages.
I ordered this bed about 10 days ago and it all arrived today. I am assuming it came directly from China where it is made because it was delivered via a land/air company. The delivery window was from 1-3pm and I got a call from the delivery person at 1:06 because I wasn't home. What delivery company ever comes at the early part of the window?! It's was great!! I assembled this bed entirely by myself in about an hour and half and I didn't even have to do more than glance at the instructions to make sure I was doing it right. My kids felt the need to jump on it and it hasn't budged or creaked at all!! This bed is extremely heavy so I am hoping it will last many many years. The only downfall I have noticed so far is that there is about an 8 inch gap at the foot of the bed I am assuming is to compensate for longer mattresses. I had to push the mattresses as far to the top as I could because I don't want my pillows falling on the floor all the time. I do not know what to do with this space. Other than that I cannot say enough good things about this bed!!

Love the bed!!! It is heavy, sturdy, and totally beautiful!!!! Also, it is bronze and gold, NOT SLATE GREY. Even the men from the furniture store who delivered a half-box base for the foam mattress I had ordered from Overstock were asking where I got it!!!!! They have nothing like it in the store, and certainly not in this price range!!!! I am so glad that i purchased it from Overstock....... Easy for my husband to assemble.....I

I have never bought anything from Overstock and I was recommended by my realitor. I was very happy with the quality, color and workmanship. I loved this bed so much that I originally ordered it for my quest bedroom and then I thought, I'd like one for my own room!!! I ended up with one queen and one king. They are ever so beautiful and I am so happy. Thank you Overstock!!

I loved this bed. I recieved very quickly and myself I put together in about 2.5 hours while my husband was at work. I would recommend having a second person to help simply in that the bed weighs a lot. It is gorgeous and elegant and we have recieved so many compliments on it.. The only complant I have is that I feel its a bit wide for a queen size bed as our matthress doesnt fit securely on all edges as it did with our other bedframe. Its a bit more to spend on just a bedframe but worth every penny.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is a bronze rather than what I was expecting, but once together was still beautiful
I highly suggest purchasing this bed if you like sleigh beds. It's beautiful without being too girly or masculine. My only point of advice is to have two people put it together if possible. I put it together all by myself. I'm a female that's only 5'2"...it's possible, but I gave myself a few bruises trying to hold the heavy pieces up while attaching other parts. Overall, the bed is easy to assemble and beautiful once together. Only downside is that my many levels of blankets don't tuck into the foot of the bed as easily as I'd like, but that's really not a big deal.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
- How is the quality of the product? This is a heavy duty metal bed. It's a very solid frame and beautiful to look at.
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? This all metal bed has great scroll work and doesn't move or make any noise.
