I was a little reluctant to buy it at first because I couldn't find a precise description of the fabric nor a real clear picture but when the bed arrived I loved it. The fabric has a linen look from a few feet away but is really more like a fine chenille and the color is more oatmeal than sand. The style is wonderful and my mattress feels better than ever sitting on this new frame. I've tried to keep the kids from jumping on it and so far they have done pretty well but I think it will be able to handle it.

I really wanted the Tate bed from C and B but the price was too high. Found this bed which is almost an exact match for half the price. It's very nice and and it is an oatmeal color. The shipping was a hassle because it was shipped by an independent company. My husband was able to put the bed together in about an hour. He had to bend the metal pieces back in place because they were bent due to shipping and one of the legs was scratched. The fabric is not smooth as I expected. Overall I am happy with my purchase.

I have looked everywhere (including Dallas Market Center the world's largest shopping center for designers) and couldn't find a better bed for the price. All the comparable beds were $2000-$3000 retail price. I have never ordered from Overstock so I took a chance on this bed. It is not as brown as the picture, which I prefer, it is more of an oatmeal color. The only thing I was unhappy with is the shipping process. It took a very long time to get the bed and once it had been delivered to the local delivery company in Dallas they called to tell me I had "white glove delivery" and it was being sent to a different delivery company. I waited another two weeks after it was in my city to even get it and they gave me a window of 9-5 for delivery. Not even a four hour window of time, who really can sit at home all day on a work day waiting for it to be delivered? Then they told me I didn't have white glove delivery and just left it in my front entry way in three large boxes. When putting it together, the directions are fairly easy to follow but I recommend you have one person work on putting all the slats into the black plastic holders ahead of time as this took a while to do and the directions were not very clear on that piece. Overall, a beautiful bed! I also use my boxspring and I like the height.

Love the bed. It's modern. It's chic. It's perfect. I had wanted a new platform bed for a while. I didn't want to spend thousands. Based on previous reviews, I bought this one. It arrived speedily and in good condition (that's important). The color, as stated in other postings, is oatmeal. The fabric a soft, linen-like weave (but not linen). I couldn't be happier. For big purchases (which I consider this to be), I don't like to order online, sight-unseen, but this bed had such positive feedback, I decided to take the plunge. It's ideal for my mid-century split level that filled with contemporary art and objets from travels. I've bought from Overstock many times in the past (not always thrilled with my purchases, but I'm not a returner type). This time I was thrilled with my purchase.

I love the look of this bed, which is almost identical to one at xxxxx, but only half the price. The fabric on this bed is somewhat thinner than the other retailers model, but since the fabric iteself will not get much wear and tear, to me this is acceptable. The bed itself is very sturdy, heavy and attractive. The color is that of oatmeal--a beautiful color that goes with anything and the style is great for a modern, traditional or transitional look. I had only one issue concerning the parts list contained in the box of hardware that came with the bed. The box contained all the brackets and screws except for the mounting bolts. I called Overstock and they were great about getting a complete second box of parts shipped out by next day. Again, those bolts were missing. After calling Overstock a second time, they contacted the manufacturer who told them the bolts were attached to the bed frame. Even though I had checked the bed for damage when it arrived, those bolts were extrremely easy to miss. I think it would be helpful for the manufacturer to indicate on the parts list that the bolts are in fact attached to the bedframe for shipping. Unless you know what to look for, they can easily be overlooked, and the first thing I always check for is that parts list. I have purchased a number of things from Overstock, but never a large piece of furniture. I was very happy with the experience and my purchase. Love Overstock, and the customer service was excellent!

This bed looked so luxurious in the photo but I was hesitant to order it because I couldn?t tell if the color would match my bedroom walls and carpet. But I?m so glad I did. This color is almost an oatmeal color and it matches perfectly. And I was right about the luxury. It is so comfortable to sit up in bed and read at night. And I don?t need a box spring any more.

My husband and I thought this bed would be perfect for our master bedroom. Needless to say, we were incredibly disappointed when the bed arrived. Based on the picture on the website and the other reviews, we were expecting something in the neutral/gray/oatmeal family. We were unpleasantly surprised to find that this bed is actually a honey/wheatish tan that clashes with everything in our room! Others might disagree, but in our opinion it does not look like a contemporary bedroom piece, particularly because of the color. Also be aware that it is not visible in the picture but the fabric is a very splotchy chenille-like fabric that looks messy close up. Lesson learned: there is no way we will ever buy another bed without seeing it in person first.

This is a nice modern bed and a great value for the money. Solid construction; your quintessential minimalist dream. The upholstered head-board is gorgeous. The color is a little off from what is shown, rather a grayish oatmeal than the depicted honey-blush. However, as beautiful as this bed is, it comes with sparse instructions (3 pictures to be precise) and the delivery company (Roadrunner Delivery Service) refused to carry it up to the third floor to my apartment and left it in my entry hall instead. That was not cool; I had to hire someone to carry it upstairs (needless to say this defeats shopping on Overstock in the first place). I do hope that Overstock reviews this feedback and hires a different delivery company in the future. I was able to put this bed together successfully (with my drill) but it took some time and sweat. Nonetheless, I love this bed dearly. It is just simply divine. It lost a star due to the delivery problem and lacking instructions. But this can be remedied by Overstock.

The quality is very nice from the fabric to the silver nailheads, which are of a nice size, quality and securely attached (does not appear to be via glue). As other reviews said, color is a bit on the greyish side, but even though I was looking for a warmer oatmeal I found that this greyish tint goes well with warm tones as an offset. Frame was pretty easy to put together. CAUTION: Look for 3 little red dots as markers for attaching the supports. However, if you are going to use a support box for a tempurpedic mattress, you should really think through the math for the height to place these anchors based upon your own preference. Lastly, I did have to have a friend machine down the center support leg as it was too tall to ensure an even support. Thank goodness for friends with power tools!

FIRST PURCHASE FROM OVERSTOCK I was hesitant to order something this large online, but am very pleased with the quality, price, and fast shipping from Overstock. I researched this bed and was almost ready to purchase it from another site when I found it on Overstock for $200 less. It had it in my possession less than two weeks after ordering it...very impressive! QUALITY Seems well made. This bed is almost identical to one from *** at less than half the price. It feels solid once it's put together. The fabric also seems durable to me. I expected it to be thin linen at this price. While it's probably not as good as a higher end bed might be, it certainly looks like it is. This was within my budget and looks much more expensive than it was. ASSEMBLY The bed needs to be assembled, but there are not a million pieces to put together. It's a fairly easy process once you figure out what to do (see below). You'll get the headboard, footboard, rails, platform and bolt kit as separate pieces. Thankfully, the platform with the bowed wooden slats for holding the mattress up comes fully assembled! Everything is wrapped with a thick layer of sheet styrofoam, then put inside a thick plastic bag. All pieces were packed well and arrived undamaged. Just a warning though, be careful when you're cutting off the plastic and styrofoam sheet...remember, there's fabric underneath and you don't want to cut into that! The assembly process is a bit time consuming and the instructions are very vague. In fact, there are no written instructions. It's all pictures. The bolts to attach the side rails to the headboard and footboard are actually IN their respective pieces and not in the bolt kit that comes packed separately. I got a little panicked when I couldn't find the bolts until I realized they were screwed into the pieces already. You have to take them out before you can attach the brackets, which I found sort of strange. My major compliant, however, is regarding the marks for installing the brackets that hold up the mattress platform. The headboard, side rails and footboard all have red dots that indicate where you are to attach the brackets, but they are almost invisible against the black fabric. I had to use a flashlight to find them...I never found the markings on the footboard and had to eyeball that one. It was quite annoying and made the assembly go slowly. Why the manufacturer didn't use white or yellow markings that are easy to see against black is beyond me! If they had done that, the assembly process would have been a breeze. HOW IT LOOKS I would not describe the color as "cream". It's more of a light stone color...between gray and oatmeal. The picture on the site is pretty accurate color wise. The nail heads in the headboard are quite a bit larger than they appear in the photo, but they look really nice. The bed has a low profile and sits much lower than my old bed. This is not a complaint...just FYI. The measurements on the site are correct, so just be sure you measure and know what you're getting. OVERALL RATING I'm really pleased with the quality, price, quick shipping and excellent customer service from Overstock. I received a call from them the day after I ordered and a follow up e-mail afterwards. As promised, I also received a call from the courier the day before delivery. It's refreshing to see a company that has an actual human being call you and then follow up with an e-mail these days. Bonus points to Overstock for that. I highly recommend this product. Good price, good quality and (with a little patience) easy assembly.
