This is a very sturdy, well-made, and heavy bed. I took it out of the box before I brought it in to make it easier to carry. I'm wimpy though! It was easy to put together, but I recommend two people just to make it easier. I bought this bed to replace the bed my son took with him to college, but he came home yesterday and saw it, so I'm afraid we'll be 'trading' beds because he liked this one so much! That's okay though! :) It is a metallic champagne color, but looks perfect in my son's black room with sponged metallic silver. I like the bed better being the color it is so it would go with more bedding colors in any other room (if that makes sense). It's a very sturdy, well-supported bed. You could use just a mattress without box springs if you want, although we used both. There are two settings for height of the supporting platform, so if you use a box springs, you might want the lower setting, unless you want to store stuff under the bed, then the bed will just be higher. This bed is well worth the money ~ it's awesome!
The bed was delivered quickly and delivered in two boxes; one of which was damaged, but no product damage. It is easy to assemble, BUT there is much more assembly than expected. Every slat has to be individually screwed down and the directions aren't that good whether to do so over or under. BTW - there are a bunch of slats since each is about one to one one half inches apart. As long as you start correctly you shouldn't have any problems. Suggestion: don't tighten anything all the way until everything is put together. Once put together the bed looks sharp and sturdy. On appearance the bed got demerits for the seam showing for the upper half of the head board and the two spot welds under each adjoining piece (should have welded all the way around). Otherwise it is trendy, nice and sturdy.
Upon receiving this bed frame I noticed a few very good things;There were 10 cross frame supports (more than I expected)There was a center brace (with 2 support legs) to aid in supporting the center of the bed and prevent bowing or saggingThe assembly hardware included locking/crown nuts to keep them secure after assemblyNot listed in the description (but I believe in another reviewer mentioned), is the fact that this bed frame can be used with or without a box spring/foundation and there are 2 assembly heights to accommodate this (or if you just want a lower or higher bed position).Assembly time for 2 people was 1 hour, and was very simple, just screws, washers and nuts.
Product arrived within a week. One of the boxes had a serious hole in it, but for the most part, the hardware inside was not damaged. I assembled the bed, by myself, in less than 2 hours. The only minor annoyance I have with the bed is that the platform the mattress sits in is not deep enough, i.e. the mattress can slide off the platform since there's only about 1-2" of the mattress that sits deeper than the surface of the platform. Hard to explain. But as long as you're not planning to have people hopping/sliding into bed, this shouldn't be an issue.I did notice some scratches on the footboard. Called and the customer service was fantastic. They not only gave me some credit back but also sent a replacement piece.
I was pleased with the weight of this frame. It is not made of thin metal, which I expected for the price. They had a few scrapes in the paint on the foot board, but did not want to send it back for that. You should have someone to help you to put this together and if you don't put the headboard flush against a wall, pillows fall through. It is very sturdy and am pleased with this purchase.
DO NOT BUY THIS BED AND READ ALL THE REVIEWS CAREFULLY!!! I made the mistake of only reading the few reviews that are two and three stars, which cited problems similar to mine, but the four- and five-star reviews also cite damage and scratches. I don't know why someone would give something that came damaged five stars. READ ALL THE REVIEWS BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR DECISION: I was so excited to recieve this bed. It came in two boxes, around 60 pounds each. When it arrived, I started putting it together only to notice that the headboard and footboard both had a lot of scratches at the top near the corners where the Styrofoam pieces were "protecting" them. One of the holes in the cross rail was also not drilled to the appropriate size; so, the screws wouldn't go in. Also, the connector on the side rail was bent; so, it would not fit properly and align with the leg of the bed when put together. The bed was damaged, defective and unsafe. I called Overstock, and they were supposed to ship another bed out to me. I got an email later saying that they were sending the damaged part (the cross rail). I called again and spoke with someone from the parts department. I told him that almost every part of the bed was damaged and a new one was supposed to be shipped to me. He ordered the replacement bed to be shipped. When the part that was supposed to be the cross rail arrived, it was just a package of nuts and bolts, not the cross rail that I was told was coming. The next day the bed arrived. I only opened the box with the headboard and footboard. They were both scratched more than the original and each had a huge dent on the top. I called to arrange a return for both beds and did receive a refund, but the amount of time that I had to take off of work waiting for the delivery of the second bed and then the pick-up of both beds was much more than I bargained for when ordering from Overstock.com. I also spent hours over the phone and email with customer service to get what I needed, which didn't work out in the end. This was my first experience with Overstock.com and will certainly be my last.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Close
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. EXTREMELY DAMAGED, DEFECTIVE AND UNSAFE
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? I was unable to put the bed together because of the multiple defective parts; so, not accurate at all.
Very nice and sturdy bed and very easy to assemble. Had minor dings and scratches, looked to be from shipping. Overall good sturdy bed.

Extremely happy with this purchase, and with Overstock.com's quick shipping.This bed was simple to put together, it took about half an hour. Once it was assembled I was really surprised at how rock solid it is. It's also a beautiful piece of furniture. I'm using it with a tempurpedic type mattress and it's PERFECT for this. As stated in the description, you can use it either this way or with a mattress and boxspring, with an adjustment in the height of the bed.If you are looking for an extremely well made queen-size bed with a modern appearance, look no further.
When we opened the box I was expecting this bed to be a nightmare to assemble there were SO many pieces but it went together in under 30 minutes. It's beautiful! and I don't think I've ever seen a more solidly built bed. Not a wobble, creek , groan or shift once it's together.Excellent buy for a super low price!
I LOVE this bed! Contemporary and just the look I wanted. Very sturdy - easy to put together if you read the intructions through properly. No dents or dings and was delivered fast in usual Overstock fashion. Everyone who has seen it loves it and cannot believe it was as inexpensive as it was. I like that it can be used either with or without box spring - I chose mattress only. Great night's sleep, very comfortable. I am glad I ordered it as I was a little nervous not having ordered furniture online before. Now I see it is out of stock. I am one happy camper!
I am overjoyed with my purchase on overstock.com. the bed was easy to assemble and instructions were very clear. Everyone who has seen my bed totally loves it. I was skeptical at first coz I figured it is a metal bed, but the material is durable and looks very elegent. no missing parts, no bent parts, and it came on time.
The bed arrives in 2 boxes. The headboard, footboard in one, frame in the other. The frame box is a lot heavier than the other. I had a friend help get the boxes in my apartment. The assembly, though it takes a while with all the supports was simple enough and I was able to put it together by myself. It probably took 45 minutes or so. I did it in stages. It looks just like the photo on the site. The color is neutral and very sleek. It's very, very solid. No issues and glad I made the purchase.
As usual, shipping from Overstock was quick and satisfactory. The instructions for assembly have one error telling you to put the wrong part in a certain place, but it was an obvious error and easy to figure out how to assemble correctly. The bed was not difficult to assemble, just took a little time and attention. It is absolutely beautiful. The color is between a gray and champagne, and is very classy looking. My husband and I are not small; the bedframe is very sturdy and has no movement in it. We set it up at the platform height and put only our top mattress on it while waiting for a memory foam mattress to arrive. We had both been waking up with discomfort from our regular mattress set and I was surprised to note that much of the discomfort was alleviated by getting rid of the boxspring. Now we are excited to try the memory foam mattress to see if we get rid of the residual aches and pains. My husband was unsure about buying a metal bed. He thought it would be unstable and "cheap" feeling. He was surprised at the quality of the product - the bed frame is heavy and solid once it is assembled. He loves it. Another successful overstock purchase for me! Yay!
