This bed is beautiful and I love it. However, I intended it for my master bedroom but had to switch it out for the guest room instead due to the height of the headboard. It is a good 18 inches shorter than the bed that I have now, and my (admittedly tall, thick mattress) almost entirely obscured the headboard. Further, I have high ceilings in that room and the proportion just didn't work. NOTE that the description says you need a box spring, but the construction of this bed is *exactly* the same as the platform bed that I have, same slats and middle bed support. I really think you can skip the box spring. I put the bed together myself, no issues there. So it you have standard height ceilings and skip the box spring, this bed is a fantastic choice - I really do love it in the guest room, get lots of compliments, and don't regret the purchase at all, even though it didn't quite work out as expected.

this bed is perfect - it is very retro in style - I was going back and forth on buying a bed at crate & barrel for $1500 trying for the same retro look - this is nicer.

I am very satisfied with this purchase. The quality is excellent, the description and photo were accurate, delivery was very timely, it was well packed so no damage during shipping, all pieces were delivered, and instructions for assembly were clear, written in English. This was my first purchase so I was a bit leery, but it has been a good experience. The bed is well made and very sturdy and the clarification questions and reviews were helpful in setting my expectations.

This bed is amazing, extremely sturdy and gorgeous. Easy to put together (just take your time and read the directions). I couldn't be happier that I found this bed which has legs that are the same shape as my mid century night stands from 1952. I was slightly nervous about ordering something like this online but I am so glad I did. The platform slats are metal and are the heaviest part so you may want a partner to put them on. The color is just like the picture. I love this bed frame and highly recommend its quality and sturdiness.
I have been looking at similar style beds in stores for a while, most of which are significantly more expensive than this one. I kept reading through the reviews looking for the usual "this bed sucks--don't buy" comments, but everyone seemed pleased. The only criticisms were from people who thought the fabric was linen, which it isn't. Honestly, it's quite a nice bed, especially considering the price. It is a platform bed, so there's no need for a box spring. I'm using it in a room with a low ceiling, so the height of the bed is perfect in that room. In terms of construction, I have to say I've had worse and I've had better. There was only one bolt that didn't fit, and overall it seems quite sturdy. Constructing furniture out of a box is never as pleasant as having the furniture delivery guys show up and do it all for you, but for *** ******* bucks I'd definitely order this bed again!

I guess what I would say is that the bed feels and looks cheap, unfortunately. I love the low profile, though - so that's nice. But as I was taking it out of the box, I could hear pieces moving inside the headboard and footboard. The bed was not horribly difficult to set up, but you do need two people. And unfortunately only 2 of my boxes came. I didn't get the third box for several weeks, so I was not able to sleep a bed for a long time, which was not great. Overall, I wished I would not have purchased this bed.

This bed looks great after putting it together, but the construction if it (especially if you're doing it alone) is not so great. I found that pieces didn't quite match up in the frame, and I had to push and force pieces to go together. The instructions also didn't mention the use of the washers for the screws in the kit. Needless to say, there were not enough for the entire frame (some are very much needed or parts would go right through the holes they were supposed to be screwed into); so you either have to forgo the screws that go into the headboard/footboard and reserve them for the supporting beams, or be sure you have extra (I chose to get more since I'd already screwed in the ones I had in the kit to the headboard/footboard). Despite that, it's a nice-looking bed. Since it's a neutral color, it can go with virtually any furniture, and it allows my bright linens to stand out. It's also not very heavy to maneuver, so although I had some difficulty with the actual screwing of the pieces together, I was able to construct it by myself in about three hours (you will want an automatic drill or construction will take significantly more time). So far it has been sturdy and quiet. I also liked that I didn't need my box spring anymore. It's short enough with just my mattress that my squatty English bulldog can still jump up without straining himself like he does with a lot of taller beds!
Nice, comfortable, easy to assemble, although has 6 legs (2 in the middle were not touching the floor so we could not figure out if we really need them). Frame is metal and we had discoloration (a bit of rust too, however, put extra sheet between the frame and mattress to solve the problem).
This bed looks so beautiful once fully asembled. However, putting it togeher was quite difficult as the holes for the frame seemed misaligned. After a few hours we were able to successfully build it. Love the fabric and the nailhead detail. The metal slats also seem to provide good support for the mattress.
The Chloe Bed arrives in 3 large boxes. A box containing slats (metal) is heavy but I managed to bring all three in from the front porch and then up to the 2nd Fl bedroom alone. In my case, the only pieces missing for assembly were the necessary plastic washers. I had some brass washers in my tool box so I used them instead. Not a big deal. This does not seem to be a problem in any way. All drilled holes for bolts, screws, etc., lined up well and went together easily and correctly. The instructions were concise and easy to understand. I followed them. The provided wrench worked well. All that is needed additionally for assembly is a phillips head screw driver. One thing: the metal slats appear slightly used. There is some wear on them but they seem good enough. It took me a couple of hours but the bed came together easily. It seems stabile and secure. There are 4 supports (queen size) under the slats (as well as the bed's legs) which is good for strength. We'll see how it performs when my son arrives from college for Thanksgiving. He is impressed that his mother put the bed together alone and that the bed is such a good value. I am quite certain that he will give me his honest opinion regarding comfort and stability! All in all, the Chloe Bed is attractive, contemporary in styling, an excellent value and well designed. I am very pleased with this purchase. As other reviewers have noted, the Chloe Bed appears to be much more expensive than the actual price. The fabric and upholstering are chic and well done. It is a very good looking bed. Clearly, Overstock is the way to go!
This is a fabulous buy! The item is chic, classic and contemporary with a retro-feel. The texture is rich and nuetral to work well with any color scheme. By far, this was one of my best buys... kudos to the manufacturer for a job well done.
