the cathedral bed was a great buy (especially at the low overstock price). the delivery boxes arrived within days of ordering and were even placed outside my door on the second floor of a walkup apartment complex. it looks just like the picture and fit in exactly as id hoped with my decor. it sits quite low to the ground and has sort of a wire mesh platform instead of using slats and a boxspring. my only cautionary note is that i found the wire mesh platform made my back a bit sore. this may be because i have an ikea style mattress (which size and height wise fits perfectly with the cathedral bed) instead of a traditional mattress. but it was easily fixed with a feather topper and now it is super comfortable. i would definitely recommend this bed to other shoppers.

Product arrived well packed and arrived quickly. Easy assembly. Solid construction. Looks much nicer than the picture. Couldn't be more pleased. This is my first platform bed, so I was worried that it might look "different" than a "regular" bed -- didn't need to worry. Current bedding comes to the floor just as nicely as it did on our other bed. This bed is comfortable and well built. Thanks Overstock.
We bought this bed for our guest room and all of our overnight guests have enjoyed it. It was relatively easy to assemble in about an hour. Feels sturdy . Similar beds we looked at were three times the price. Very pleased with purchase!
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.
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!.
