We love the look of the bed after we assembled it, but getting it in place was difficult because the frame was so heavy and the shipment was short half the screws needed to assemble the bed. We had to go to Ace and buy more parts to complete the assembly.
Don't use it in the middle of a room! Unfortunately this bed is built to be up against a wall, so those of us who like stuff spaced out will have problems... namely with the headboard portion. Because it's barred, pillows will fall through (AND DO THEY FALL THROUGH!) Very solid once assembled, put together myself in around 90 minutes. Very STURDY, very attractive, very affordable. I would easily recommend this to someone else, but keep in mind what type of a room layout you want before you make the buy!
The frame is very sturdy and looks pretty good. Everything has a top quality finish and parts are nicely protected from scratching during transport. There is a minor design flaw: the head board design is very open, so your pillow might slowly slip through it during the night (depending on your sheets). We solved this with an additional long pillow along the head board (full width of the bed).
I love this bed! It arrived quickly, all the pieces were included, nothing was damaged and the directions were easy to follow. I was going to wait for my husband to come home from work to help me assemble it ...but i got on a roll and did the whole thing myself. Tools are included, but I found that using a socket set made the work go much faster. It is well made and has the added feature of having bars that act as a platform so that you can adjust the height and use it with or without a boxspring. All this and so good looking too...who could ask for more! Loving Overstock!
This bed is just beautiful. There was a very small nick in the footboard. However, once the bed was completed and set up with the boxsping and mattress you can't even see it. The bed is very well made and the assembly was very easy. Once again, I'm a very pleased with my Overstock purcahse. Thanks.
When my husband and I decided we needed a bigger bed, I started the research. All the king beds everywhere we looked were expensive and/or made poorly. I started looking on Overstock.com because you can get the best unbiased opinions here. I thought the bed looked nice on the site, but it was even better in person! It is very sturdy, and it looks great! It's just as nice (if not nicer) that the expensive beds we were looking at in the big-name stores. The only con: we were missing some screws in our shipment, but that was an easy fix. I took one to the local hardware store and matched it easily. Also, just a note--it will take a little while to put together (and it is easier with two people). It is very well-made! Another excellent purchase!!
The bed arrived in two separate boxes and is quite heavy. Assembly took about an hour but the bed is made very very well and all the support pieces are metal. It went together very easy and looks great. I was worried about the headboard not being comfortable if sitting up in bed but to my surprise my head rested perfectly either between the metal or on the top rail of the headboard. It is very comfortable and paired perfectly with Overstock's 14 in. king size memory foam mattress. What a great deal. Always a plessure shopping on Overstock!!
The bed came in two heavy boxes. All parts were there and the instructions were easy to follow. It took about an hour and 15 min. to assemble, but it would have been faster if I had the box wrench and allan wrench drill bit earlier. The bed looks great and is very strong and well made. I highly recommend this product.
Although the final product after assembly is great, the parts didn't hold up well during travel with some resulting dings and dents in the metal. Since the packages are so huge, I didn't want to go through the trouble of returning. However, the good thing is that the final didn't show any damage. I'd definitely recommend it and would get another for the spare room.
We love our new bed. We were afraid that the assembly would be difficult, but it was very easy to put together. We slept in the bed that night and the difference is unbelievable. My husband and I both have back problems, but after sleeping in the bed we had no complaints the next morning. WE LOVE OUR BED.
Great bed and value, but hard to assemble. Two screws provided were not long enough and had to be replaced at the hardware store to make the bed work. You can assemble with the tools provided, but standard metric wrenches work better and easier. If you are not "handy", get help to put this bed together.
I am very pleased with this bed. It strongly resembles the picture but not as dark as I thought. It is very pretty, easy to assemble and very strong. I love ordering from Overstock because you get good products. I have ordered several times. I will again!
