This is an extremely well built bed very solid no squeaks or wobbles. The mattress sits on a 3 panel grid system that gives 6 cross supports with a raised side rail to keep the mattress in place. There are also additional legs for support. There is about 9 3/4 inches of clearance under the bed. I used the Serta 8 inch memory foam mattress with a 2 1/2 inch memory foam topper. There is 13 inches to the top of the headboard from the top of the mattress and the footboard and mattress top are almost even. (Again my total mattress height is 10 1/2 inches) The color is a gloss black. The instructions were well written and assembly was fairly easy. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a solid platform bed.
This came sooner than expected in 2 large boxes. The parts were not heavy at all. With two people, it was easy to assemble in less than 25 minutes. No missing items. No box spring needed. It definitely adds a certain elegance to my room and with the height, there is plenty of storage space under the bed. No squeaks at all getting into and out of bed. My only concerns were that the rest of my bedroom furniture was dark brown, I thought with an espresso color it would mismatch, but it actually makes it look like it's part of a bed room set. Also, the head board is a little low. If you have multiple pillows (I have four), you cannot see the headboard really. But this is just a cosmetic gripe of mind :) Wish this was offered in other colors and a higher headboard, but I'm overall very satisfied with this purchase.
First of all this came to my house very fast, much sooner than they said it would come! It was pretty easy to put together, but i do recommend two people for at least part of putting it together. Love the platform and the fact that no box spring is needed. Seems pretty sturdy, looks beautiful yet simple, and what a great price! I looked online at so many stores and this is one of the best deals I found out there! So pleased with overstock.com and will def. be back to do more shopping in the future!
This bed is excellent, and you can't beat it for the price. It is VERY sturdy, and even nicer looking in real life. I'm a 24 year old who isn't very good at putting things together, but I had this bed together in under two hours all by myself. It is well made, and I love it. I love that it's a platform bed most of all though. I've looked around at a lot of beds, and this was one of the best I found. And THE best price.
i had just moved out of my dorm into an apartment and needed a new bed, as quickly and cheaply as i could get one. this ended up to be the best deal around (with the 11" memory foam mattress), and it was quite easy for two of us to put together. the instructions were straightforward, and all of the pieces were easy to identify. i did not want a metal bed, had debated for several days prior to ordering, but i am really pleased with the finished product.
We received this bed today and already have assembled it. Easy assembly, great looking bed, exceptionally strong and sturdy. Absolutely thrilled how it looks in the bedroom. We also bought a memory foam mattress from Overstock for this bed. Can't say enough how satisfied we are with both purchases. I compared prices with the stores in town and internet and Overstock won over everyone else. We saved lots purchasing both from Overstock. And with saving so much you will NOT sacrifice on quality.
I ordered this bed for my daughter to use when she comes home from college. My husband put it together in just minutes and we had the whole thing set up in less than half an hour. The bed is VERY sturdy and strong, and looks really nice in the room. I would highly recommend this bed if you are looking for a nice platform bed. I like the charcoal color, but If you don't like the color, you could even spray paint it before you assemble it!.
The bed is a nice, classic bed with clean lines and can be used in diffrent styles of rooms. It was also a very good price. However, even at nearly half off it took an unordinarily long time to complete the assembly. Not because it was difficult but because the three mesh pieces did not fit and i had to wait for a new set to arrive. They arrived roughly 15 days after the original pieces but, instead of just sending me the three mesh pieces i was also sent ANOTHER head board and foot board. Now all i need is the siderail pieces and i have an extra bed for the price of one. But, what am i supposed to do with it??? hmm??? storage space is not readily avilable for such large pieces .....
The bed was easy to assemble and looks like the picture. The bed is very sturdy and very heavy, however the joints are welded together somewhat sloppily so you can see these pretty big glops of melted metal at the joints on the headboard and footboard. I like a firm bed, so it is very comfortable for me. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a simple inexpensive bed with a low profile.
First I wanted a platform bed; and when I read a review with the statement regarding there were no slats; something I had not thought of, this made me read all the other reviews very closely. I came back to this bed because also the statement that it was easy to assemble and that it was very sturdy. The price was very reasonable; and it lived up to all I had expected. I am very happy with the purchase.
Bought this bed for my son--we had just recently purchased a memory foam mattress and it broke the slats in his previous bed. This holds the mattress, which is quite heavy, with no problem. Was fairly easy to assemble and I am challenged in that area(!!). The head and footboard are beautiful--gives a whole new look to the bedroom.
This bed is terriffic - looks great, doesn't squeak and even came with scratch-proof pads for the legs! It was extremely easy to put together - even for me. It arrived within 5 days in 2 sturdy cases. I love it and would highly recommend it. This was my first purchase from Overstock.com and I was more than happy with the process and prices. I will be hard pressed to shop other websites in the future- I will always check here first!
This is my first order from overstock and I love it. My bed arrived in less then 3weeks. The boxes were damaged but the bed was in great condition. It came with alot of parts and took longer then I had plan on to put it together, I would recommend using a power drill to speed things up. Once all was said and done it look great. It's a great bed, especailly for the price. So what are you waiting for click buy.
