Just got the headboard. The material looks like raw silk. Some draw backs. Has a funny order like lighter fluid. Hope it goes away. The headboard is not high so the bed needs to be low or set up with no boxspring. The alignment of the headboard and frame is off. The nail heads on the side panels are not the same. Alot of problems for the price.
While the actual headboard is nice, the tools designed to put it together are not that great. The L bracket which keeps the head and side boards is of very poor quality and construction. I doesn't really fit and it was a struggle to make it partially fit. That in turn caused a problem with getting the heel lined up properly.
It could have been made better.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Fine
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Okay, not great
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good
This is a very nice addition to a bedroom. I purchased it along with the Uni-Matic Universal Metal Bed Frame and they were both very easy to assemble on my own. I currently am using this headboard in my bedroom with dark espresso furniture but could see it pairing very nicely with white, walnut, painted or even the chic mirrored pieces.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I felt that the color was exactly what I was expecting. It's like a sandy linen color.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I didn't have any issues with the quality of the product. It seemed to be manufactured well.
The side panels were easy to install but the 'L' bracket was hard to attach to one side because it was not aligned properly and the bottom of the headboard was slightly bent at an angle. Then I bought two bed frames to attach to the headboard and neither of them had bolt holes 4 in. apart. So, i'll have to keep searching to find one that fits, or I guess the headboard will be sitting on the floor forever.

I really like this headboard. It looks like ones I've seen in nice furniture stores. The only cautions I have are that the box it comes in is big and heavy and you're going to need someone to help you put it together. Oh, and unlike me, read the assembly instructions first.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very well
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems very good
Great looking headboard; however, the assembly is ridiculous. The first one I ordered came in without screw holes to attach the legs. When the second one arrived, I had high hopes...the "L" brackets again didn't even come close to lining up to where the screws were supposed to attach the sides to the back. Had to put the screws in sideways and pray that they hold.
In addition, the screws to attach the headboard to a standard metal bed farm don't line up. I had to attach the bottom screw to attaché to the bed frame and then rig a large washer for the top screw on both sides as the screw is positioned too high.
Assembly should have taken 20 minutes and took over two hours instead. Awful.
Assembly became impossible to achieve. O sent a second w/the possiblity of combining parts. Second was more off than the first. Too bad I read the reviews after I made the purchase. I recommend you look for another.
It's a very nice looking piece. It was delivered on time. However the assembly instructions are horrible. The pieces did not line up and needed a lot of muscling into place.
I am not a novice to assembling furniture, and this one was a real bear to put together.
There was no quality control from the factory they just threw some pieces in a box and didn't care if the lined up correctly.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor quality control for assembly

Why are so many people complaining about assembly and the holes in the headboard not lining up with the frame? Has that been resolved? What size does the frame need to be, exactly? We're super interested in purchasing and would need to buy a frame to go with the headboard.calichic1999 on Apr 1, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

A lot of the reviews say this headboard is short. Does it work for beds with mattress and box spring? I have a temperpedic mattress and I want to make sure it woksnursbee on Mar 8, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your interest. At 45 feet, the headboard is not short at all, but pretty standard and as such does work without any problems with box spring/mattress combos. If this is not helpful to you, please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.
