The description says that this is a black metal bed. It is not black. It is antique brass which is more like a medium dark brown. I bought the bed for my guest bedroom, which is done in purple and black. The bed color looked awful in the room. I actually liked the style of another metal bed better than this one. The reason I bought this one was because it was described as black while the other was described as brown in one review. However, because the price was so good and I didn't want the hassle of returning it, I decided to keep the bed. I painted it black, and it now looks great next to the black and glass night stands and black metal lamps. The lavender sheets and purple comforter also look much better on a black metal bed. It is a very sturdy bed and easy to put together. I put it together myself (59 year old female). I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 mostly because of the color.

My teen daughter purchased this bed for her new "retro glam" room. She painted the walls a rich purple, the white headboard makes a nice contrast. The platform was difficult to put together and you really can't move the bed once it's assembled without fixing the platform supports. The legs are turned inward, not sure why, just a design flaw I think. Overall, the bed serves it's purpose and makes a statement. good value for the money

Very comfortable and sturdy bed. Fairly easy to set up. The finish is more beautiful than it appears online. It's a great color with depth -- a nice espresso with reddish purple undertones that make it more elegant looking. We liked the leveling feature on the mid-beam legs that go under the bed -- just wish they were finished in the same nice way the outside legs are. The hidden legs under the bed are really ugly and rough, but you can't see them unless you get down and look under the bed. We also like that this bed is a bit higher than most platform beds so you can store more things under it. We are very pleased.

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.

The bed took over two months to come. When it got here...the color looks purple and the studs are silver. This bed does not look like the picture.

If you are looking for a black finish dont by this bed. It appears brown in my black and purple room. Does not look like the picture.

I LOVE IT! The bed is absolutely beautiful. Who would have thought you could buy a bed on line @ Overstock.com? Well you can... The quality is outstanding, and the price is even better. I found the same bed for twice the price at a well know furniture store with minimal color choices. Not too many people can say they have a sexy purple velvet bed! Overstock.com you ROCK!

The product was great outside. The headboard was beautiful and the whole bed merges gracefully into the grey and purple bedroom. However, after sleeping for two weeks. I found that the bed frame needs a better slatted bed base because it only came with three thin base wood. The mattress has fallen down in the middle.

I bought this bed for my 10 year old daughter's room. My husband put the bottom frame together in no time. The bed was even nicer than I imagined. My daughter and I were in love with the style. She wanted a preteen room and this bed set the tone. We went with a black and white theme with pops of purple throughout the room. The bed goes great with other classic white furniture. Love this purchase and would recommend this bed. A great buy.

I hesitated to buy this bed online because it only had 2 reviews v the Scandinavia and Alsa platform bed which have >100 each. I actually think this bed is much better looking than both. It has the same tonal wood gradations as Alsa, but with some nice cream microfiber upholstery. The picture is misleading because it makes the bed look really dark with stark white, cheap looking upholstery and that awful purple sheet, but it is really quite nice! It's not hard to put together, but it is pretty heavy, so just build it where you want to place it. It fit our queen mattress perfectly and is a great, lower profile bed that's simple, but still has some nice details so that it's not a big hunk of brown in your room.

I bought this frame for a second room and we love it. I have been looking for a long time and was sceptical about ordering furniture off line but I must say it was easy breezy. I will shop with overstock from now on. Delivery was on time, box has all the parts, easy to put together it took two people 30min to 40min. The bed looks great again our dark purple wall. We love it. Cant wait to shop again.

The look and feel this frame gives to my room is so grand and ornate I end up sleeping so soundly every night. Many friends walk in my room and are in awe of such a beautiful bedframe. Assembling it took some time but that's likely because I don't pay attention to detail well and get bored quickly. I have taken dark purple christmas string lights and wrapped them around the top part which adds a nice calming vibe at night to my room. It was shipped and delivered within a week. I have nothing bad to say about it at all.
