The bed was very easy to assemble (although much easier with two people - one to steady things and one to screw in the screws). It is a relatively low bed which was perfect for my space, but buyers should definitely pay attention to the height dimensions. My mattress is just about level with the base board. Overall, the bed is very attractive and worth the price.
I was impressed with the quality, workmanship and weight of this bed, but I never was able to fully appreciate it. The bed was shipped in two (2) boxes, one containing the headboard, footboard and spring panels (supports the mattress), and the other box containing the side rails. The box containing the headboard, footboard and spring panels is HEAVY (70+ pounds), and the one that I received had been damaged in shipping (it looked to have been dropped on one end). One leg on the headboard, one on the footboard, and one of the spring panels were so severely damaged (bent 6-8" out of line) that they were completely unusable. Overstock.com's Customer Service reps processed the return quickly, UPS picked up the packages the next day (less than 24 hours later), and a credit was issued once UPS retrieved the packages. Too bad this bed is now out of stock because I would have requested a replacement rather than a refund.
i was so excited to get this for our guest room b/c i thought it was a great addition..boy was i wrong..it reminded me of something u would put in a dorm room...i started putting it together and some of the pieces did not fit, things were missing..i was so frustrated..i chatted with an overstock person and this is the only reason i am even giving it a 1..they were so helpful and nice, sent me retun labels and could not have been more helpful..so if u are considering it, don't buy it unless u want to be disappointed.
I got this bed to go with a foam mattress I was buying and it looked nice for the price. It came in 2 boxes, but at the same time. The extra hardware was in neat plastic packaging and the instructions were very clear and appeared very simple. At first I had difficulty inserting the legs into the headboard, and almost gave up when I put one in sideways and couldn't pull it out or turn to adjust... but I was able to work it out and put the entire bed together by myself relatively quickly (I'm a 31 year old woman). It seems sturdy and looks nice, so I'm very happy with it :)
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 .....
