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.

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!

It is a beautiful bed, I love it. But it is not white and I really wish it was. My bedroom is white, and this bed it is not even an off white, it is beige, or oatmeal, with dark brown. Still beautiful, and strong, very good quality and I am very happy, but the color was not what I want. I will keep though, because I did like, even with a different color. But be aware. I did not put a spring box, but plywood that I had cut at the hardware store. I do not like to have a tall bed, and it work so well. I purchased the memory foam gel matteress also from Overstock and it was perfect. I recomend the bed, as long as you understand it is not white. Do not think "oh people might be picky!" Listen, it is not white.

I agree w/ some of the other reviews on the color. It is an oatmeal or almond color rather than white, but that was the perfect color for my guest room and the style was perfect, too. The parts arrived undamaged in two separate boxes. It wasn't too difficult to put together. I put it together with only the "help" of my 2 year old. I am going for a French country garden look in the room and this bed has really tied together some other pieces I am using.

I really like this bed. The color is a bit more of an oatmeal than the goldfish tan color portrayed in the picture. However, I like the actual color much more than that in the picture. Not too tough assembly. Great bed for its price!

Item is exactly as stated. The fabric has a cross-stitch pattern in an oatmeal color. The workmanship seems to be sturdy and it looks beautiful in my bedroom! The wingback gives it a sophisticated look.

Moving to a new state into a new build home I wanted a fresh new bedroom set. I looked on countless websites for an upholstered bed with nailheads and prices were all over the board. I was willing to spend more (at a restorative store or gallerie), but this is the set I continued to come back to...and bought! Saved at least $$$$! It's not white but more linen (light oatmeal) in color. It takes a low-profile box spring and what I really love is that the mattress sits high enough that you don't have to get in between the rails to change sheets making sheet changes a breeze. Yes, there is a small 1" gap between the rails and mattresses but this hasn't created any sort of problem. It's not a large enough gap where you would catch a toe or foot so I don't understand the complaints about that. Yes, the slats are definitely splinter ready so put on a pair of gloves for this part! Thankfully, we didn't need to run out for any additional parts/pieces. I began putting this together myself. The rails easily lock in to place. When it came to the rest of the bed, THANKFULLY my mover came in with a drill and had everything else together in less than 10-minutes. I STRONGLY suggest you use a drill to put this together. Had I had to do it manually it would have taken me at least another hour since, as to be expected, the holes weren't always where they should have been and with a drill he was able to quickly resolve that issue ;) I have white bedding on this bed with a white shag rug under it and everyone that has seen it has complimented me. Great buy!

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!

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.
