Okay, so this bed is HEAVY. You cannot put this together by yourself. You will need a second very patient person with nimble fingers to secure all the slats and the rails to the headboard and footboard. I was cooking and I let my family try putting it together. There is NO WAY it should have taken more than an hour. But one is pushy and the other is docile and neither paid much attention to the directions. After dinner I threw the hothead out of the room. They had put it together for box springs even though I only had the new mattress and no box spring anywhere! So that was wrong from the start. They had one rail on backwards and I noticed it after we had secured most of the slats. It ended up taking about 4.5 hours. I worked on it for about an hour but I was correcting mistakes and then it went much faster. They also had the support feet on wrong and they were not even touching the floor. The bed is beautiful. It will clearly last for years. I have a tiny guest room and need to keep my stationary bike in there so I love that the frame with the open design does not take up a lot of visual space. I love it! For the $ are you kidding me?
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color looks like a gunmetal to me, maybe a bit champagne, but still in the silver tones..I like it
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It is not going to fall apart that is for sure.

I purchased this bed for my son and it was just what we wanted. It was easy to put together and looks very masculine. The slat foundation makes it nice for a mattress without the box spring, however you could also use a different height for frame construction if you would like both mattress and box spring. We are very satisfied with our purchase.
I bought this bed for my guest room - ironically my first guest was born in the Bronx! It arrived on time in two boxes. It was very easy to put together using a simple allen wrench, but an extra set of hands will make it go faster and help hold pieces steady when you're fastening them together. Directions appear more complicated than they are to execute, just go carefully through them. Assembly took less than an hour. Very sturdy, looks terrific and my guest slept great! Also comes apart easily in to three pieces (headboard, footboard, platform) in case the bed must be moved. Very satisfied.
I ordered this bed because it had good reviews. It was described as powder coasted steel but did not list a color. I was expecting a grey metal looking finish. It arrived with the color "champagne" on the outside of the box. Another option was slate. When I spoke with customer service, they said the champagne color was the only color offered. They did send me a return tag but I had to drag a huge 90 lb box to UPS to send it back. Overstock initially deducted the $95 shipping from my refund for returning the product. After speaking with them again, they did credit me the full product price due to the incorrect color being sent. It seemed like a very heavy and well built product but the gold color did not fit into my decor at all.
This platform is actually better in person then in picture. It has a berry comtempoarary feels. I originally was looking for a wood platform bed, but somehow I bought this instead. I have no regret, as this frame will withstand the dust of time better then a wood platform. The real reason I bought this is because it's cheaper then the comparable wood platform, and I just love the look of it. Remember, no chem wipe, if you must, only water, otherwise just use dry clot to clean when needed. This platform looks better in my white 8" foam bed.
Delivered quickly in two boxes. I had to travel for a family emergency and didn't get around to putting the bed together for more than a month, which had me frightened that if anything was wrong, I wouldn't be able to address it within the terms of the return policy. My worries were needless, though. All the parts were there, including the two tools needed. The design of the bed is incredibly simple, although it takes a little effort to put it together on your own. I laid the footboard flat on the floor and attached the side rails, using chairs to hold things stable and then tipped it up. Thinking later, using a couple of stacks of books as "sawhorses" may have been the better way for one person to attach the side rails. I worked at a leisurely pace and completed the job in 2 hours. There was a dent in one of the bed slats that did not interfere with the functionality. Carefully packaged, all of the visible painted parts were pristine perfect, without dents or scratches. I particularly liked that all of the joints were sanded down and painted so that the design is uninterrupted by joint lines. Once put together, the bed is rock solid -- not a wobble anywhere. Ditto for sleeping -- complete and total support. I decided to go with a 14" mattress only and without the foundation for a really clean and streamlined look, and boy, was I pleased with the result. The color was listed as "champagne" which popped beautifully as a warm gray against my nearly black dark gray painted wall. It's exactly as I had imagined. Pleasantly surprised that the bed also comes with a 10-year limited warranty. I am VERY satisfied with this purchase.
I love this bed! It is very sturdy and solid. It does not wobble around like so many other metal frame beds. One of the support slats got damaged during shipping, but it didn't affect the usability or stability so it wasn't worth it to send back for a replacement. Color is great too (kind of a brown-grey).
I've had this bed for two years. I always have to tighten the screws every two months. After two years of this and two moves where there whole bed is taken apart, the screw's are too worn down to tighten and even impossible to remove. Now I have a creaky bed that even creaks when my 10 pound cat walks in certain places. This bed is good, but not for nightly use. It is unfortunate because I love the design which perfect for storing small things like cups and glasses on the headboard.

I held my breath after ordering this until I got it unpacked and assembled, as I know the quality of these welded and powder coated items can be great or very poor. This bed is gorgeous and of the highest quality for the money - very sturdy and sensibly constructed. The finish is beautiful and it looks like it cost twice what it did and the style is very cool and contemporary - it seems to go with almost anything. Great buy!
A very nice, sturdy frame. Be aware...there seems to be two colors - a grey steel color and a champagne (noticed on box). Mine was champagne, which actually worked better for me. The directions are a bit vague...took a bit longer to assemble than it should have. Overall, well made product at a good price.
Sturdy, looks nice and modern. Easy to put together, but make sure to orient all the pieces in the proper places and directions. Definitely set up with 2 people. 3 would make it even easier. If done properly, should only take an hour or two to set up.
It is the style and value that I was looking for for a guest bedroom. That being said, the color is a little lighter than pictured, but still a silver finsh, not gold as I was afraid when I saw the words on the box "champagne". Not it's not gold at all! A light pewter perhaps. I like it. It looks sturdy, a bit heavy, but it's metal. A few nicks, but can live with them, not really noticeable unless you look closely. I hope all the screws and other parts are in the box, we didn't put it together yet. But my experience with Overstock has been a positive one, so if there is anything missing, I would hope they will provide it. The bed looks modern, which I was looking for, and I will pair it with a reclaimed wood nightstand.
This bed has 10 slats across and by the time you put it together you definetely feel like it's nice and sturdy. When I got mine it had a pretty decent sized nick in the 'headboard' I considered trying to exchange but I'm not sure it's worth the trouble. Assembly is not difficult but does take about an hour. It's made in china, the welds are prominent, the pieces don't fit perfectly together (lines that should be straight are slightly offset) but when it's all said and done - it works. It is pretty heavy - doesn't have a cheap feel to it. . I purchased an 8" memory foam mattress with this and put it on it's top setting and it just doesn't look right - it's still very low to the ground and the spacing from mattress top to head board bottom is noticeable. I plan to buy big pillows and fluffy bedding so it doesn't look so bad. I will be keeping this bed but I would not buy another one.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I think the color is great. A dull off - silver - not to bright and shiny
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I'm a little disappointed with some aspects but it will serve it's purpose
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description is fair. Even at it's highest setting with no box spring - it's still pretty low to the ground
I have this bed in my guest room, every one comments on how pretty and contemporary it is. It is a little small for my 6'4" son, he has to sleep caddy corner. My two friends and I put it together...I have to admit the directions were a bit confusing and we had to take it apart and restart a couple of times could of been frustrating if I was lone I don't think I could have done it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I got the golden one it apears exactly as it does in the photo.
