Cherry - Beds
Wed Sep 04 00:00:00 MDT 2013gsteward Rating:5.0
Came in two very large boxes that were damaged. However the bed was in perfect condition. I agree with other reviewers that the bed is of very good quality and the origin is Vietnam. The color matches the web site photo perfectly and is more on the brownish side than redish cherry side. But it looks fine next to my other cherry bedroom items. It only took me 15 minutes to assemble the bed once all the parts were in the bedroom. Make sure you have the proper hex bit for your drill because that alone probably took 30 minutes off of installation time than trying to put the bed together with the smal hex key provided, which would be a slow process. The only cons, really there are no directions, just guess where to put the slats for support. The screws provided were not long enough to tack the slats down but had some on hand and threw the screws they provided away. The bed is also very, very low. Just two inches or so off the ground-no room for storage much less to vacuum under. I put my bed up on a 2x4 block I painted to match the bed and a carpet slider. I did have to cut new support legs to accomodate the higher bed. But I can at least store items under the bed now.

We ordered two of these beds for our twins. They were easy to assemble and arrived in a very timely fashion. The drawers are roomy and easy to pull in and out. We love the height of the beds. We are very pleased with the purchase.

This bed is very nice, but takes longer than expected to assemble. I would highly recommend that you have 2 people with power drill/screwdrivers for assembly.

We purchased the bed because we needed to replace a full size bed in a guest room with a queen for taller family members that come to visit. The price & style was right as I did not want to replace the entire bedroom set, just the bed. The bed posts are metal but the wood-grain finish blended well with the existing cherry dresser & vanity. The room I have this in is already an eclectic group of pieces so the fact that it did not match exactly was OK. The design of the head board allowed me to place the bed in front of a window without losing too much natural light. The assembly was easy & all the pieces were there. The bed is sturdy & has three support legs for the mattress set. Not take much care was taken in handling of the headboard package as it looked as if it had been kicked all the way from packaging site to my front door. Fortunately, nothing was broken missing or damaged. If you want a sturdy attractive bed at a reasonable price, this is a good buy. If you are looking for an heirloom piece to pass down to future generations, keep searching. I give it 5 stars not for high quality of workmanship but because it is exactly what I needed at the quality I expected for the price I paid.

This bed arrived in two packages and took about an hour for two of us to put together. It was helpful to have two working together to hold the pieces in place while place the bolts. Love the look of the padded headboard.

This is a lovely clean style piece! It will not go out of style. The wood is beautiful and the price was great! It was easy to assemble and the mattress set fit right on. We love it! It makes such a nice room! The value is great too!

This is a great bed and very straightforward assembly. With a 1/4 ratchets and the correct allen head; you can screw the bolts much much faster. Or use a flexible 1/4 nut driver extension bit. It honestly took me an hour to put it together with a power drill too. The best way i found to space the slats for the mattress support. Is to lay one slat flat and one standing on the edges for the spacing between them and just screw them down with the power drill. I cracked one of the legs by not using the black plastic stopper that was included for the long bolts. so read the instructions FIRST ! :-) And I did replaced the bed with a Peter Malay bed bought from Ligne Roset furniture store that I had fifteen years. Couldn't be happier. Buy it and you won't have any regrets

This piece is absolutely gorgeous! Its exactly what I had hoped for when viewing online. It did take some time to put together, but if you organized everything before actually starting... it went very smoothly. The only thing I was truly concerned about before ordering this bed was if it would actually by good and solid - or cheaply made and wobbly. I decided to take my chances, and am very glad that I did. This piece is extremely solid and I will definitely be shopping here again!

Was so excited when I saw this finally available in a King size. It is beyond what I expected. So beautiful and sturdy - the perfect firm/solid base I was looking for. No creaking or groaning. Not sure how easy it is to put together - we bought it when we moved and the movers put it together for us. Could not be happier!!

The bed is functional and a good support for a mattress. I'm rating it average, because the drawers do not close tightly (which of course is a fault in the assembly I did; but that said, assembly should be in a way that this does not happen), the bed is really high with a thick mattress, which means you need to go up into it. And you need a large room for it, because if you want to use the drawers on both sides, the bed needs to be in the middle of the room, so you can get to them (or with the head/foot against the wall). Thus, my review is based more on the aesthetic shortcomings of the product, rather than any functional issue (i.e. I've had it for a month and so far nothing broke :-)

Some metal beds are loud and cheap looking, not this one. It's gorgeous, sturdy and I love the cherry accents even though its metal! I couldn't find this quality b bed in stores for this price!

THough I am sure this is a great looking bed, the wrong bed was delivered to my home and it was returned. I needed the bed for a guestroom which was going to be used during Thanksgiving holidays and there was no way to get it in time. I canceled the order and purchased a different bed locally.

I've had this bed for 2.5 years now and I'm very pleased with it. Assembly was a two-person job, and I doubt I could have done it alone, but it only took about an hour from unpacking to mattress in place, ready to sleep. Like others have said, it didn't come with enough screws, but other than that, everything was well-packed and pretty easy to figure out. Multiple reviews have said this bed isn't sturdy, and I suppose if you've got two large people sharing it regularly it might not hold up as well as it has for me. But if you're a small person and usually sleeping alone, it's plenty sturdy and ideal for a memory foam mattress (I didn't use a board over the slats and the mattress has held up well anyway). I'm 125 lb and although it's usually just me sleeping in it, I've also shared it with my boyfriend who is closer to 200 lbs and it's never felt wobbly or unsteady. I wouldn't jump up and down on it but for, uh, normal bed activities, it's been fine. It's survived a trip down three flights of stairs and up two more still in good shape. The finish is attractive and the overall look is very clean and blended nicely with my antique cherry bedroom set. Especially in a small room, the low profile is great for maximizing space and not feeling fussy or crowded. I am considering ordering the same style of bed in a king for our new apartment.

This bed is an amazing value. The platform slats are solid and well put together. The assembly was not difficult and took less than a half hour. The wood is beautiful and although it's mahogany, the stain blended well with other cherry furniture in my bedroom. It's very difficult to find a platform bed that's solid wood with slats and that look real nice and not too contemporary. And very comfortable to sleep in. I noticed the difference from using a boxspring vs. this platform that only requires a mattress. I have a very deep mattress so the height of the platform is perfect.

Very, very. very happy with this purchase. I was looking only at headboards because I don't have a lot of room, and the starting price for them was about $100. Then I found this bed - frame and all - for $253 (w/free shipping), and it was only a few inches longer than the mattress. It's an amazing fit and made of solid very warm feeling wood. Couldn't be happier! Looks and feels fantastic. I put it together myself no problem in about 25 minutes, and I'm not good at these sort of things. Took longer to break down the cardboard than to build the bed. I highly recommend this bed. I feel like I did something right!

I got the Cherry bed wthout all the tools to put it together, however after a call, the right equipment was finally shipped out a week later and I was able to assemble the bed. It did not take very long at all with two people and the bed is sturdy. I am really enjoying my new bed, it makes my bedroom more classy.

Let me start by saying, I love this bed! It's gorgeous, was easy to put together (did all by myself in under an hour) and is very solid. I was surprised to find that the end poles are actually metal, not wood like it looks like in the photo, but it still looks like Cherry. Unfortunately I am still waiting on parts for this though! It has taken a month to get all the parts; originally it arrived without the instructions or the parts to put it together, once those arrived (10 days later) I did inventory and realized that I still didn't have all the pieces. I have a new request still pending to have the two end caps to arrive. Overstock has been very good about sending the pieces that are missing, but the process of having to contact their parts department turns out to be the biggest disconnect in the processes as that required two contacts from the service department. Other than this, I am very happy with my purchase and will consider buying from them again, although may have to think twice if multiple parts are included.

We thought this bed was a good deal and then we got it in mail and realized it was an exceptional deal! We feel we got lucky and are very happy!

Bed came quickly in three boxes. Unpacked them in the garage so I did not have to carry the heavy boxes upstairs. Bed pieces are well constructed and solid. Very happy with the qualtiy. It took about an hour and a half to put together. The biggest problem was what many others said in their reviews, the bolts are installed at such an angle that tightening them down is very difficult. Not the greatest engineering effort there. Also they send "super glue" to hold the dowels in place, I used good quality wood glue instead. The bolts tighten down so well though you probably don't need any glue, particualrly if you plan to disassemble the bed. Everything was very well packaged to prevent damage during shipping. Very happy with the product and the price.

Although the most popular room for end tables is undoubtedly the living room, you can place these tables in nearly every room in your home.

One shape of end table might look best next to a recliner, while another might be perfect next to a sectional sofa. Look carefully at the room in which you will be placing the end tables. Is dark wood or light wood prevalent? Is it a small room or large room? Will the table sit in a corner, against a wall or in the middle of the room? As you can see, end tables are quite flexible.
