I was nervous based on previous reviews, but we love our bed! You don't even have to have a box spring under the mattress based on the way the bed is structured, but we used ours so our mattress was higher. It did feel very close to the ground, which was convenient for our puppy! Love this bed, would highly recommend!
Purchased this bed after reading the only review - which was a bad one. Decided to take a chance and glad I did. Takes some time to assemble if doing it alone, but if you don't mind that, the assembly is straightforward. All pieces and assembly hardware were included. The piping is straight (I'm picky about that) and fabric grain is aligned on all the bed pieces. As the one review indicated, it isn't a hardwood bed but I didn't expect that for the price. It's beautiful - the fabric has a casual look and feel which makes the bed seem less fussy than a tufted style. I used my queen size box spring and mattress - fits perfectly.
