Bed frame was easy to put together, just follow the instructions. I wish they would just told you were to put the slats but no big deal. The bed has the exact look I wanted, modern edge and not too feminine looking. I'm a woman with class not a girly girl.

I purchased the Tribeca Chestnut Queen Size Bed approximately two weeks ago and it was delivered in about 5 days. This was my first purchase from Overstock.com and I was very interested to see the quality of the bed before purchasing anything else. It took longer to assemble than I expected (four hours) but that was because of the quality and the detail of the bed's construction. It is a beautiful piece of furniture and I have since purchased an entertainment center for my living room and two night stands to match the bed. I also plan on purchasing at least one chest of drawers to match the bed. I am very impressed with the quality of the product and the service provided.

I love this bed!!! It arrived within 1 week. My husband and I assembled it together. It's really not as hard or time consuming as it sounded in some of the previous reviews. We just put The Kirate Kid into the DVD player and started assembling. We did take someones advice and purchase a rubber mallet prior to putting it together. That really helped move the process along. The directions are pretty self explanatory... just match the numbers on the parts to the numbers in the directions and follow the diagrams. It only took us about 3 hours to put it together and that included an hour lunch break. The longest (and most tedious) part of assembly was using the allen wrench to screw the legs into the headboard. There isn't much of a turn radius to tighten the screws, so I would say that took the longest. The color of the bed is more of a dark chestnut/cherry. It's not as "dark brown" as it looked in the picture, but we love the color. We think it's beautiful. We have a memory foam mattress and we don't even need a boxspring. The only complaint that I had with this bed was that the foot/cross board at the bottom sticks out further than the edge of the mattress. So with a comforter on the bed, it covered the parts that stuck out further and I kept banging my shins (both of them depending upon which side of the bed I was trying to round) on the bedframe. I banged them so much that all the little bruises on each shin formed one massive bruise that was a very scary color purple and black. I learned that I had to tuck the comforter behind those parts that stuck out so I could see them and not hit them. Also, I had to remember that the bed frame sticks out further than the mattress. Otherwise, we love the bed and have absolutely no complaints about it. For tools we used the allen wrench that was included, a rubber mallet and a power drill. If we hadn't taken the lunch break, we probably would have had it assembled in the time it took us to watch The Kirate Kid.

I like every other who has purchased this bed was rather skeptic - both buying a bed frame $*** in value and doing so online without any inspection. I'm so thankful for transparency and review systems. The vast majority of the reviews for this product light the way to an informed decision. I hope that my review will do the same for you. Product came 1 week from date purchased. I tracked it as it travelled by UPS Ground across the country. Arrived in 3 boxes. The quality of packing was rather absurd, it was PERFECT, I mean. There was a tremendous amount of love put into the packaging of this item, felt like I was opening a 200 year old grandfather clock. The instructions are extremely clear. If in doubt, use your common sense, make sure you pull out all the parts and inspect them all. Group up the similar parts and lay them out. Then stand back, take a breath and think - trust me it's a very obvious buildout. You will however NEED a phillips head screwdriver, but honestly, have an electric one (this will make the Slat installation so much easier). The hex screws they give you are sufficient in my opinion. For the headboard, use the long part to screw them in (hold the short end) - that way you can do 360 rotations and cut the time down considerably. From this part on was sheer fun. Took me roughly 1.5 hours from Headboard to laying mattres on the bed frame. Looks absolutely gorgeous. SIDENOTE: Many of my frame slats came warped, some are unusable. Whilst the bed is totally solid and quiet, when I flap about on the mattress the warped slats can hit against the centreboard making a woody "smack" sound. Overstock have been incredible and are issuing 12 new slats to help rectify this issue. Thankyou Overstock for an incredible product. Thank you reviewers for doing your bit in helping me make my decision.

I purchased this bed after reading the many glowing reviews on this site, and it surpassed my expectations. The item arrived well-packaged, with pretty good assembly instructions. Having to screw the hex screws into the grooves on the headboard was a royal nuisance (and think a flaw in it's design), but once that is done (2 hours later), assembling the rest of the bed was a breeze, and it is a very solid piece of furniture (I was able to do it myself and I am not particularly strong). The color, like one reviewer commented, is a bit lighter than in the picture - it is actually a warm chestnut color - it looks so much richer in person than on the website! Overall, I am extremely pleased. I just wish they made coordinating nightstands and dressers!

I love my new Milton Chestnut bed!! As others have said, the headboard is a serious pain to put together but the rest is a breeze. The dowels are an extremely tight fit and you will need a rubber mallet to get them and tightening the hex bolts on the back of headboard is a serious test of patience. However, the rest really is very easy to put together. It took me about 4 to get it all together, I am sure with an extra pair of hands it would have gone much faster but I was able to manage the assembly alone. Once assembled, the bed is VERY sturdy, wonderfully crafted (solid wood, no press board or particle board) and is simply beautiful. Also, you'd have a hard time finding such quality at such a low price. I would not be surprised to see the same bed in showroom for triple the cost. There is no need for a box spring as it is a platform bed and thus far, I find that the slats support my mattress adequately. This also gives the bed a lower profile, which is something to consider if you prefer taller beds. One note of warning, for those of you (like me) who have gone without a bed (i.e. just box springs and mattress on a metal frame), be wary of the corners at the footboard!! While they look lovely, they are quite painful on the shins. :)

I'm writing this review after 7 months with the bed. In general it is a good piece of furtinure, good color, good finishing, and very sturdy.

The picture makes the color of the bed appear much darker then it really is. It is a true chestnut color. The bed is very nice but I bought a dresser in expresso thinking that they will be some what close in color due to the picture, boy was I wrong. I know have a chestnut bed and a expresso dresser, I have talked my husband into ordering the matching dresser and nightstand now. I guess I should of paid attention to the name of the furniture (Milton) not just the color they appear to be in the picture.

when it came i was please with the quality overall. it is solid and pretty much what i wanted as far as style. except: the color is way off. at least the one i got is. and i don't like the color at all. the tobacco with the variations of the light and dark which are both neutral to cool tones was what i was after. i got all chestnut without any variations. there were too few slats to support a mattress so i had to have something made to support it. and in the picture it looks like the headboard rises far above the mattress. in my reality it doesn't at all. so it gives an entirely different presentation. and i was liking the look of the add on the sight. so - quality is fine. aesthetics -well, "you don't always get what you want . . . . but you can get what you need!"
