It is a very attractive bed, however it says that using a box spring is optional... It is NOT optional. It has 3 wooden planks that you rest your mattress on top of, when you lay down on it, the parts of the mattress that are not on a wooden plank sink to the ground. The bed is fine as long as you get a box spring.

I have been looking at this bed for months, but I just had a problem buying something online I'd never seen before. Finally, after being sick of sleeping on just a bedframe, I took the plunge after seeing good reviews on Overstock. The item arrived before the estimated delivery date. The packaging was amazing. I was worried after watching the UPS deliverer practically throw it at my front door, but there is so much packing material that is was more than safe. My husband put it together by himself in about a hour. I have got to say that this bed is very solidly constructed. It looks very sophisticated with the nice clean lines on the headboard. We have black bedroom furniture so this matched perfectly. I like that the headboard is not too high at all. We chose to use a mattress and box spring because we like to sleep a little higher. Very satisfied with this product and very glad I took that chance buying it without seeing it.
I purchased this bed for my 14 yr. old. He has a black dresser so I wanted a black bed that looked like a "real" bed. The headboard and footboard make this bed a beautiful statement piece in the room. I put it together by myself in about an hour. Super easy!! It looks so nice. it is made of some laminate and some MDF but you can't expect all wood for this inexpensive price. It works for my budget and needs. You can't go wrong by ordering this bed. My recommendation is to use a box spring with it. There are only three slats that go across the frame and the boxspring gives the bed some stability and "height". Buy it!!!!
This was our first time buying online. Product is worth every penny. Beautiful in color and very impressed with the construction. Box Springs for your mattress is required for better support. We love this piece of furniture. Looks very rich in our room. We highly recommend. Thank you
I was scared about buying a piece of furniture on line at first. But finally, I'd decided on this bed frame. It only took 3 days to be delivered (fast processing/shipping). The way this product was packed...one word..."outstanding"!. I could not find any dents or scratches on this bed frame. It took me about 2 hours to put it together; no hardware pieces were missing (they've even pack more than enough). I have to admit that I'm very happy with this purchased. But like anything else...only time will tell how durable is this bed frame :)

The bed is beautiful. It is sturdy and doesn't shake or creak. There is a huge problem though, and that is that there is practically no support for your mattress. There was no picture of the support system, which is 3 wooden slats running across the bed. theres no center beam for support, and the slats are so widely spaced that the mattress falls down in between them almost to the floor. Without a box spring, there is a 5 inch gap between the surface of the mattress and the bottom of the headboard. purchasing a box spring wouldn't be a big deal if the description hadn't said it was optional, it is absolutely not optional. even with that, I bought more wood slats and supports from home depot to go under the box spring. I was afraid to sleep on it. I am very disappointed with this product, even though it looks very nice. I just had to do too much extra work for the bed to be functional.
I was incredibly disappointed when getting this bed as the frame was quite flimsy, a supporting post underneath the bed broke within minutes of putting the bed together and laying on it, and the frame moves when you are resting on it. I am concerned that one day soon I will fall right through. The style is classic, the color is a nice black, the shipping and handling were great; no problems there. It is simply a low quality bed for low purchase price. I would not choose this bed again.
I was so shocked that I could pay so little and get so much. I looked all over for a bed and saw prices $XXX and more. I paid less then $XXX and free shipping. The directions were very easy to follow. When I needed some help I called the # and got someone who answered the question quickly. This is the best company I have ever dealt with.
Purchased this bed to match some black bedroom furniture that I purchased from another company. The bed goes really well and I was able to put it together by myself. Shipping was also accurate and it was delivered in a prompt manner (6 days after ordering).

It was shipped to me with no damages, and arrived just as the listing said it would. The bed is of solid construction, and easy to put together. The only complaint I have is the middle slats that hold the mattress are of poor construction. The legs kept falling off and the slats themselves are flimsy. However all I did was go to Lowes and had some smooth plywood cut to length and replaced the 3 original slats with 5 new slats of plywood, and cut a 2x4 down to 6 pieces to serve as the legs underneath the plywood to support the weight. Added about ***to the overall price but it's a beautiful bed, and over time those slats wear down anyway so eventually I've pretty much done this to ever bed I've ever owned.
This bed came in three shipments and packaged very well. It look an hour or so to put the bed together. The bed is a good value and is very pleasing to the eye!! The quality is similar to a Pier 1 bed - maybe a little less but that is what I would compare it to. You aren't purchasing a *** bed!!!
Bought for my son. Very elegant, high end looking. Solid. It looks great in his room.

This bed is fantastic! It did not take long to assemble, the holes were drilled in the correct places, the color is a true shade of black. It arrived promptly and was packaged extremely well. The instructions were very easy to follow and there was extra hardware. I would definitely recommend this bed.

After doing lots of research on the internet, I finally purchased this bed for our guest bedroom. It arrived super fast (* business days) and the packaging was superb. Not a scratch on it. A little bit awkward to put together but thats to be expected when you buy flat packed furniture. Definitely recommend this! I am going to buy a box spring mattress after reading the other reviews.
I needed an inexpensive bed for our lake house. After reading the reviews from others, decided on the Bedford bed. It arrived quickly and was packaged to perfection. Instructions and needed tools to assemble the bed were included. My husband and I put it together in just two hours. It took some time unpacking from the boxes and then we had to break down all the packaging. The only issue we had is one of the back brackets on the headboard would not sit flush at the bottom because it would not stay screwed in but did not appear to affect stability of the set up. We used a box spring and and mattress and find it to be just the right height. It will not be easy to vacuum under because the height is not great for a vac to fit under. Great bed for the price, looks awesome and so thrilled that I took the risk and ordered it. Thank you to the other reviewers for taking the time to review the bed and helping me make my decision!
I bought this for my 9 year old son's bedroom and am so very pleased with it! This bed will grow with him and won't go out of style as he gets older. It's a good solid, sturdy bed and was relatively easy to assemble--provided you have a 2nd person to help you support it while you screw everything in place (there were no quick fasteners as I've been used to with other beds). The clearance beneath the bed is only a few inches, which was a drawback easily remedied by cutting and painting 1" lifts to go under it so we could get plastic under-bed storage containers to fit. If you're needing under-bed storage, this bed won't offer much, but it's still a great style and quality and I'm very pleased with the purchase.
