We to were a little concerned about the bed because of the price. We figured it had to be a cheap bed and not very sturdy. We were wrong, the bed is wonderful. Very sturdy if you are a couple that puts the bed to good use, besides just sleeping. The shipment came in two parts, and UPS screwed up big time, then when we unwrapped the frame it had a big dent in both the headboard and footbord, but overstock immediately processed an order for a new one. We didn't even have to ship the damaged items back, just discard them. So the customer service is wonderful and bed is Wonderful. We will shop with overstock as often as we can.

I've been wanting to upgrade to a King size bed for a while but couldn't find the right bed to match my contemporary dark brown/wenge set. The Bronx bed is perfect. I was concerned about the "champagne" color in the description. The actual color is more like a brushed silver/pewter, which blends perfectly with the brushed silver hardware on my night stand and dressers. The frame is powder coated metal but very solid. The platform decking is also metal, not pine slats like my old bed. Definitely a heavy weight bed (packaged weight about 120 lbs). In short, a handsome bed at a great price...love it!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? "Champagne" description not accurate. More like photo...silver/pewter
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Frame and platform decking is very solid
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Excellent
This is a pretty sturdy bed. But buys should beware of a few things:
1) The metal for the headboard and footboard is VERY thing for something like a bed. Mine came with several dents. The way it's packaged, I can't imagine many people would get it WITHOUT dents. Tightening down the screws even 'pretty' tight results in the metal bending.
2) As other have noted, the bed needs one more slat at the foot of the bed, and really one more at the head of the bed.
3) The bed could also use one or two more center supports. I think it'll be OK, but instead of the two legs in the center, they should have done three.
4) the metal scratches very easily. Mine also came with several scratches. I'll live with them, but it's frustrating.
But all in all, I think once it's all together, it feels very sturdy, and doesn't seem like it's going to make noise. It feels very strong. Others have noticed the cheap welds, and this is true, I hope they hold up over time.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Close. Actual product feels lighter. It's definitely 'steel gray' in color.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The metal on the headboard and footboard is very thin and easily dents. Mine came with several dents. It seems nearly impossible the way they packaged it that it would come undamaged.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Fine
The quality of the product must be poor due the simple fact it cannot survive the shipping process. The first unit I received was severely damaged. After receiving the wrong bed as a replacement, 18 days later I finally got the right one from FedEx; however, the headboard was slightly damaged due to shipping. Since I did not want another headboard that I have to dispose of or wait another 7-10 working days, I reluctantly accepted the damage. I normally would want something brand new without any damage, but who has the time to deal with a company a third time to try and receive a product that will more likely than not, be damaged upon arrival.

This is a sturdy bed. We were looking for a platform bed that sits high enough so that our dog can sleep underneath. This was perfect. I put 3/4 of the bed to together all by myself, and when my husband got home, he helped with the last page of directions. It is in perfect condition, and seems very well built. Our futon mattress sits very snug between the headboard and footboard, which makes changing the sheets a little challenging. Also (this is going to be hard to explain!), but, you need an extra long flat sheet, because the part that goes under the mattress at the footboard needs to go about 5 -6 inches *under* the mattress to catch a piece of metal to keep it from just hanging there. That is because we don't have a box spring, so there is nothing to keep the flat sheet from being tucked under. We didnt need to buy extra long sheets because of this, we just pull them down a little more (from the headboard) than we would normally do. We love the new bed, and are very happy with the purchase.
Owe started with a queen years ago. It served us well for 6 years until we upgraded to a king.
We looked and shopped for something cooler, something a little luxurious , BUT knowing the massive amount we were going to be dropping on a mattress & sheets, duvets, pillows...blah blah, (well over 4k!)
I being the more frugal suggested this same frame.
My wife read ally agreed, and we had #2 in no time.
Six months later, we ended up buying the same mattress/ frame again when we split.
Pros: sturdy welds and construction. Quick assembly. Comes with enough slats, so you don't need "Jonny Boards" for supporting a mattress- box spring.
Con: will loosen up (over time) with frequent repetitive force applied in a given direction. (Did I say over tine? )
The2nd one arrived with a little ding in the front top edge.
It was not not enough of a worry to return/exchange.
All in all, we have bought three of these in 7 years.
They hold up well, disassemble quickly.
Caveat: make sure to tighten things when the start toy get "squeaky"!!! Lol
We have not had any issues with this bed. I was able to put it together without the help of my husband. I had read it could be used without a box spring, but for us that would have been too low. It is sturdy.
We received our bed about 2 weeks ago and couldn't be happier. I was skeptical of ordering a bed online, especially a metal frame that I couldn't touch and see in person. It shipped within about 10 days of ordering in 2 large (heavy!) boxes, perfectly undamaged. A minor annoyance: some of the small washers were loose in the box, so the search and rescue recovery mission of these in corners underneath cardboard flaps was a bit of a setback. My husband set it up by himself in about an hour (trust me; it's faster this way). No extra tools or swearing required. We made an executive decision to leave off the small black discs intended for the bottom of the posts because the tough plastic would scratch the floor; they seemed to be for vanity and not really for function (unless we're wrong but haven't noticed anything funky in 2 weeks so … fingers crossed!) The bed is very sturdy and does not wobble a bit, which was a concern. We have hardwood floors so we're wary of weight distribution on the floor boards (1930's cedar) and feel very comfortable with its durability and sturdiness. Our mattress was also new and I liked that the bed has adjustable settings to be either 7.5" or 11.5" off the ground. We chose the higher setting since our dog loves to hide under there. We switched our box spring to be 2" low-profile and the whole family is happy. I understand the comments about needing to rig an extra slat to get a "tight tuck" at the end of the bed; but luckily I loathe tucked in topped sheets and blankets so it's not a big deal to us at all. Get the bed! It's a good buy and you'll be so happy you did.

In the product description it notes you can use this bed with a mattress only at 11.5" ... is there enough support in the decking/frame for that or does there need to be additional support created or bought? In other words, is this a true platform bed?kwentzel on Jan 12, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
we are using it with a 14" mattress and do not use (nor need) any other support.socalgerman1 on Jan 14, 2014
Upon putting the bed frame together, you will have to decide if you want to build it to accommodate box springs or not. If you build it to just accommodate a mattress, then it's a platform bed. I built mine to accommodate both a pillow top mattress and box springs and it works great! The height is really great for engaging in other activities besides sleeping! ;-)wellbredtexan on Jan 29, 2014
I got two really thin pieces of plywood, duct taped them together and covered them with a fitted sheet to keep them from snaging my matress and just use a high quality matress (no box spring) the plywood keeps the matress from pushing into the support bars so when i flip it, the other side is smooth as new. i used the higher platform setting so i could get tons of storage underneath.2216 on Feb 14, 2014
The platform is adjustable to use with or without box springs, and the platform is all steel, bolts to the frame, and is very solid.patty8033 on Feb 25, 2014
