The bed is very nice looking - the only reason I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because the color is quite different than the picture. I have had this happen on more than a couple online orders though so I was not too surprised or too upset. The color is more of a matte silver/slate not black at all. But it is still a very good looking bed. I put the whole thing together by myself with the use of a power drill to make it go much quicker, but it was not necessary to have the drill. It seems very sturdy and doesn't move around or make noise which is a HUGE plus and really the reason I was getting a new bed to begin with. I would recommend this product.
I couldn't believe how quickly the bed was delivered--three days from the day I ordered! It took about an hour for my husband and I to assemble the bed using only the tools and materials provided. The finished product is very sturdy and attractive. I am very impressed with this entire experience; I definitely feel confident ordering from Overstock in the future.
I really like this bed (and the price). For the most part, it was easy to put together. I had some major frustration putting together the full headboard because some of the screws seemed to be just a tad bit short. Removing the washer made the difference. Overall, the bed is strong and offers great support. If put together properly, it dosn't move, squeeze, or give in any noticeable way.
This bed is very nice for the $. It is a little more gray than I expected, but I don't mind. I wish the lower setting was about 1 inch higher--nothing fits underneath the bed, but it's not the end of the world. This bed was very easy to put together--took about an hour by myself. We're very happy with this frame and would definitely recommend it. I'd give it a 4.5 if I could.
Great bed. So easy to assemble, especially with two people. I think it took us 20-30 minutes including unpacking the pieces! Not bad for a couple of chicks. It looks great and feels solid. You cannot beat how fast everything ships! This came within a couple of days of purchase. The box was a little hammered but the bed was undamaged. We would recommend this to anyone.
I didn't want to buy a box spring for the foam mattress that we bought along with this bed. When we ordered this I was afraid that the bed would be too low. I was completely wrong. The bed is adjustable and the height is only a bit lower than what queen mattress set was. No biggie. It is very nice and very sturdy. We had an expensive wrought iron queen bed that does not compare to this. I just hoped they had night stands to go with it but during my research I found that the manufacturer doesn't really make them. We are sticking with our old ones until we find something that looks good. The foot board came with a huge dent when it was delivered. We promptly called customer service and they had a new one sent immediately. We continued to build the bed and when the new one arrived it was very easy to replace it. I cannot believe that we didn't even have to return the damaged one! I LOVE O!
I love this bed. It is great that you are able to use it at 2 different heights. It did take me quite a while to put the bed frame together since I did it alone but it was well worth it. One tip, use your own wrench, the one that comes with it will get you nowhere. This bed frame is very heavy and sturdy. My bed arrived with no dents like some other customers had experienced. I would recommend this bed to anyone.
We just bought a new house and I ordered this bed because I wanted to get something chic and metal. It came quickly and was not difficult to assemble. I like the fact that you can adjust the height of the mattress and that the slats are firmly attached. The color is also very attractive. I saw the house and the bed for the first time with my realtor (my husband purchased the house before I was able to see it), and she was astounded at the price and how elegant it looked in the bedroom. She said she had been looking into the same type of bed but everything she found of that quality was thousands of dollars more. I think Overstock now has a new customer! This is one of many orders I have placed with Overstock and can't praise your staff highly enough for the quality of service they supply, their knowledge, and their ability to fix any small problems that might occur with a strong custormer-oriented attitude.
I can't believe how great this bed is for the price. Looks great and is a wonderful platform bed. We weren't sure if it would be sturdy enough to get rid of the box springs, but it has 10 slats and is very sturdy. Like the others have said, it isn't a pure black as is shown...it is more of a metallic black/ very dark gray. It looks beautiful and I have no complaints! Arrived in 3 days with standard shipping. Wow!
I have had this bed for nearly 3 months now and am very happy with it. Both boxes arrived with tears in them, and there were a couple "pockmarks" on the footboard, but you have to look close to see them. It took around an hour/90 min to assemble; not bad doing it myself and chasing an 18 month old... Very sturdy and great perceived value. Would recommend for sure. We are using just a Sealy Posturepedic mattress (no box spring) and have the platform on the highest setting. This doesn't leave much of the footboard sticking over the top of the bed, but it doesn't bother us. You can always use the lower setting if that's your preference. Overall a great value.
Using with a Sleep Innovations 10" memory foam King mattress, setup as a platform bed. Got it as a temporary bed till I could find a bedroom set I really liked, but this may be a keeper regardless. Have slept on it for about a week and really like it! Nice sturdy and heavy bed. Easy to setup, would recommend using 'real' tools if you have them, a ratchet/socket and an Allen wrench instead of the supplied tools. Really sped up the assembly time (about an hour, I am very mechanical type). There were 2 bags of bolts/hardware, don't mix them up, the headboard/sides use different length bolts than the slats, so if you use the slat bolts for the head board you will not have enough, and the headboard will not go together correctly. Box was a bit tattered when I got it, was a minor amount of scuffing light scratches, but not enough to worry about returning over. One issue that I 'fixed' was that the last 6 or so inches of the mattress is unsupported by slats when used as a platform bed. The top sheet at the foot end of the bed had to be tucked way under to stay on the bed which made the top sheet too short at the usable end for my liking. I added a 1X6 board cut to length at the foot to make the sheets stay better. Overall great value for the money.
I ordered the bed and my husband and I were able to put it together without any problems. It is a nice sturdy bed. I would recommend it to anyone. It does look black in the photo, but is more metalic looking in real life. It wasn't a problem for me, so just a heads up if you are looking for something that is straight black.
This headboard set was shipped within 2 days and received in 5 which was a pleasant surprise. We were very happy with all aspects of this product. It was not difficult to put together and the instructions were very easy to follow. Everything lined up perfectly and all of the holes for hardware were cleanly drilled, which is a rarity for many items that must be put together. The bedframe itself is much sturdier than the one I already had and the headboard and footboard are of solid contruction and have a nice weight to them. Nothing flimsy! I would highly recommend this set. It has a nice contemporary look and the finish on it is consistent without color variations.
