The bed itself, once assembled is great. Very very sturdy, and you don't need a box spring (but can use one as well). Only things to be aware of are the heaviness of the packages that will arrive. This may be an issue if you live up a couple flight of stairs and the delivery people aren't nice enough to bring it to your door (or as in some buildings, cannot get in the front door if you aren't home). So anticipate needing help just carrying it to the room. Once you open it, there are only 2 extra pieces. These are for the rods that come down to support the bottom of the bed. They give you 2 longer ones if you don't use a box spring, and 2 shorter rods if you do use a box spring. So the two rods you don't use have 2 pieces you screw onto the bottom. The instructions are very confusing, look at it like pictures and try to assume some things. Just keep your cool and try to have help assembling. If you're like me & get overwhelmed at the thought, it helps even just to have someone in the beginning. Cheers.
This bed is really sturdy and looks perfect with the Motley 3 desk. It can be used with a box spring or without and you can adjust the bed when you put it together if you are going to use a box spring or not. The box says "champagne" but it is more of a light grey color and that is exactly want I wanted. My fifteen year old son picked this out and he could not be happier. It was not hard to put together but be aware that it comes in two boxes and half the hardware is in each box so that is a little bit confusing but nothing reading the instructions a few times did not fix!
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).
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.
The bed arrived in 2 packages, with one of the boxes damaged in several places. Turned out that several pieces, including the headboard, were dented. We contacted Overstock.com customer service and they resolved the situation very efficiently - 10 days later we have a new headboard (didn't need to ship the damaged one back), and are expecting the second package with parts shortly. The bed assembly took some time, but in the end it looks really good. It started squeaking after a week, and I yet have to look into what causes it. My son is happy with his new bed, and that counts for a lot!
This is a very good value. Beautiful modern style. The little bit of assembly required was easy-peasy. This is a very sturdy bed and likely to last a long time. My grandson is 6'5" and weighs 240 and has no problem with feeling it to be flimsy in any way. It completely supports him. I'm very happy with his choice and my purchase.
I am delighted with the bed. There is a little room for improvement on the various welds and mine did come with a few small scratches but nothing major. It was fairly easy to put together but it's definitely a two-person job. Took about an hour all told. The color is called champagne but it's more on the silver than gold side. All in all, a great bed for the price. I would recommend.
