This bed is decent quality. It's nice and heavy and seemingly sturdy (though it's never actually been slept on). We bought it for an office/guest room. It looks very nice now that we've completed it with bedding, etc. Initially, when it was just a mattress and the bed, it looked a little cheap. However, with a feather-bed and fluffy comforter, it looks like an elegant little set-up.

I bought 2 beds for a spare room. They were easy to assemble and I was very impressed with how solid they are. Great beds for the money!

the bed arrived in a timely manner, as usual w/O.com~ the packing was fine, and everything was in good condition. two small caveats 1) the welds do show where the bars joing the frames, though all is painted uniformly, which helps to hide it, and 2) the directions were sketchy at best, and were good only on steps where it was exceedingly obvious what needed to happen~where there was ambiguity, there was scant info and the diagrams were'nt very helpful. that said, there aren't many piececs, and even if there were NO directions, you would eventually get it together correctly. on the whole, i am pleased w/it.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? a bit darker, perhaps
- How is the quality of the product? pretty good, thouhgh the directions could have been quite a bit clearer
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
I will try to be faster about this review... overstock timed me out after I entered the last one. Two of the pieces that fit together did not because one side had been smashed a little. I had to get a hammer out to open the hole up a bit to get them together. A little bit of chipped paint and a ruined shirt later, they were together (and will likely be that way forever). Once it was all together my son and I were very pleased with it. It looks nice, it is sturdy and is a great alternative to buying a box spring and frame when you have an extra mattress. This was one of the more difficult things I've put together. Had to get help from my husband. But it was worth it.
My dad put the twin together by himself with little problem. It's a nice, smooth, black metal that appears elegant, not cheap. The platforms are adequate for our twin memory foam mattress which is very light, not sure how it holds up with a heavy mattress or heavy people. Good value, good look. My only complaint is the slight squeak it developed early on. I suppose it's hard to avoid with a metal frame. Also, it's not the dark bronze color it may appear on your screen as it did on mine. Rather, it's black, which the description did not state when I bought it over a year ago- would have liked to know prior to purchase. I'm still happy with it and would buy it again.
We are so happy with this bed. We are senior citizens but still were able to put it together in about 30 minutes. Bed is sturdy and just as pictured. Thanks for a good bed for an affordable price. My granddaughter saw it and wants her Mom to buy one just like it for her.
Thus far I am very pleased with this bed. It was delivered very quickly. I was able to put it together by myself (and I am not very skilled in this type of thing). The bed is attractive and seems very solid. It doesn't make creaking noises and it holds the mattress with nice even support. I think it is a great deal for the money.
I purchased 2 of these beds for a basement bedroom. I was looking for inexpensive but not cheap. I didn't want to buy box springs. The platform bed will allow for max airflow under the beds. The basement is finished but it is a basement and the relative humidity is higher there. Anyway, the beds arrived undamaged, were relatively easy to assemble, and are remarkably sturdy and good looking--my daughters approve. I wondered if I would have to put plywood or "buckyboards" under the mattress since I wasn't using box springs. The photos of the beds don't show you what that part of the bed looks like. I was happy to see that the platform that the mattress sits on is a grid that can support the mattress without any assistance. The grid comes in two pieces, two squares for one bed. This probably makes shipping a lot easier. The only thing that disappointed me was that they came from China. How can you make a metal bed in China and ship it to the US for less than it can be made in the US?
This bed is fantastic! It looks beautiful and it was VERY easy to assemble. I put it together with a friend in less that 30 minutes (took longer than it should because we didn't read the directions ...) Arrived promptly and with all parts intact. It's great too because it doesn't require a box spring - great way to save money. Highly recommended!!
Easy to assemble, looks great and very sturdy. My only negative was all that awful stirofoam the bed was packed in. If you want a bed that will fit with nearly any decor, can be taken apart to move to another room in less than five minutes, looks more expensive than it is, this is it.
Unbelieveably easy to assemble. High quality, very sturdy yet light enough to move around by yourself. Perfect for everyday use, guest use, kids and adults. Looks elegant yet simple. Simple, clear directions for assembly with diagrams. You can't go wrong. Don't pass this one up! Took me 30 minutes total to unpack and assemble all by myself (female, age 42).
