Purchased this about three months ago. Purchased a memory foam mattress from Overstock to go with it. The bed is incredibly comfortable. It took my husband & adult son about an hour to put together, but there were no issues. The bed itself is very sturdy and looks very modern.
I had a standard frame on my bed without a headboard so I couldn't move my bed away from the wall without my pillows falling off the bed. So the bed hunt began. This bed is exactly what I was looking for a nice solid bed without a standard frame. It has two height settings the higher one is for mattress only and the lower setting is for box spring and mattress. Even though I had a box spring I used the higher setting so I had room under my bed for storage. The bed comes with slats a support bar that connects to the slats in the center of the bed which has two legs, so you have essentially 6 legs on the frame. It weighs around 120 pounds without the mattress and box spring so make sure you set it up where you want it. The reason for the one star removal is because the two large square holes on the headboard eats pillows, even jumbo king sized ones. To correct this I bought some cotton twine and made a dream catcher style design to fill in the large square holes. Since I couldn't find any grey twine I bought white and used grey and black dye to make a color to match the headboard. Later on I will probably attach a solid piece of wood to the headboard to block the holes. Another issue I ran into was the box that came with the headboard and footboard was missing parts such as screws and a bar I needed for the bottom on the headboard. I contacted Overstock's customer service and they sent the missing parts out immediately, I am very pleased with their quick response to the issue. Overall I highly recommend the bed, but you might have to get creative when it comes to those giant square holes unless your headboard is going to be up against the wall.
This bed is slate/platinum colored. The only things that are black about it, are the slates which you can't even see! On the box it came in, it is clearly labelled as slate. However, on this site, the picture is black and under color it is listed as black. If you read some other reviews, other people have commented on this fact and still Overstock chooses to advertise it falsely. And since, with an on-line purchase, all you have is the company's word choice and pictures to go by, this misleading advertising can make all the difference. The bed itself appears to be sturdy and in good condition. At under $400, it's a great price and it was delivered just a few days after we made the order. However, in this case, the color change makes enough of a difference that it doesn't go with anything else that I had purchased for the room. Ironically, I picked this bed and then built the room around it. So, you can imagine by shock and anger when the bed itself was not at all what they promised me. Especially, since we planned it so, we'd put it together on a Saturday morning and the new mattresses would come that afternoon. Customer service was nice, though they implied that they were doing me a favor by paying for the return fee. And initially they tried to get me to pack it back up AND drive it to a UPS location. I quickly convinced them that they would be picking it up, free of charge to me. The other annoying thing, was that all the follow up emails, they kept saying how happy they were that they could help me and fix my problems and provide me with what I needed. There couldn't be anything further from the truth! What I needed was them to put the correct picture with the correct labeling on their site! And the last email they sent me, reminded me that I was "seriously missing out on a Bryant King-sized bed." Obviously, just a computer generated mistake, but talk about adding insult to injury. Regardless, I won't be doing business with them again. Which is unfortunate, because so much else about their company seemed great.
I bought this in King size for a mattress I planned on using without a box spring. Assembly: I assembled this by myself in about an hour. I suggest you get your own allen wrench as the ones they provide are very small, however, they are sufficient. Quality: The bed frame is very solid feeling. It has supports for different base heights. I feel the king mattress is sufficiently supported. This seems like a very good frame for the money. I am very happy with the support this gives my mattress. I've never used a mattress without a box frame before. I only wish there was a support that ran the foot of the bed - without a box frame , the sheet/covers don't stay tucked in the foot of the bed very well. However, if they come untucked, this is masked by the comforter in my case. It looks fine without a bed skirt too.
This bed is so much better than amazing...it is uh-May-zing. Being married with 6 kids 12 and under, let's just say that it is of utmost importance to us to have a very sturdy bed that doesn't creek, etc. This bed has exceeded our expectations in every way possible. The look is beautiful, the frame is sturdy , it is rock solid with no creeks, etc. Wow....so pleased with this purchase.
This bed with headboard, footboard and frame is great! Came very quickly, and I put it together myself in about an hour. Very sturdy and looks great! It dies come I'm two boxes, thank goodness, because it was heavy The little wrench that came with it was as little hard to use, but did the trick. The cookie is dk brown/black. So glad I got it!
We were looking for a metal king size bed frame, and this product looked great. It looked black, but is actually a dark slate color. At first we were a bit disappointed, but now think the slate blue works better in the bedroom then black!
Love the look of this bed and the value for the money is terrific. Negative is that the deep mattress fits so tightly between headboard and footboard that it is really a strain to make the bed, fitting the sheets and bedspread in at the bottom is really tough. Otherwise, it's a very rich, modern look and quite sturdy.
Bed is terrific -- came in LOTS of pieces, but not hard to put together. Color is SLATE, and is NOT BLACK...good color, but more like gun metal gay, and certainly not black. One part was slightly damaged in shipping, but was still fully functional...
Got this bed for my daughter and was very pleased with the quality of the product. Very sturdy construction and all of it heavy metal. Design is very clean and worked great in her room. She was very pleased. No squeaks or noise from the frame. Relatively easy to assemble. I would definitely recommend it.
Sturdy, low profile king bed. We'll-made and relative simple to put together (best with two people). Color is modern looking. My bed was missing pack of bolts, nuts, etc. which cost me about $10 at Lowes. We love the bed for our beach condo.
