It's difficult to rate a bed that you didn't get actually receive. Overstock sent a different bed made by the same company. We like the bed, though one of the slats broke and we had to get a replacement for that. But when we pointed out that it was the wrong bed, Overstock said that this one was out of stock and offered us $ back, which is some kind of joke, I think.
The bed frame arrived in three boxes that were quite heavy to move to our apartment. We needed a borrowed hand truck...and the elevator. Unboxing was no problem nor assembly. We had purchased split king adjustable beds which fit inside instead of the slats so other's comments about slats weren't of any concern. Now it looks and works great to complete our bed set. The wood is a rich deep red-brown and the chrome a great accent.
I am a very determined female and I put this bed together myself. It would have been easier with a 2nd person, but I was still able to accomplish it in 2 hours or less, I wasn't looking at the clock. In the end a few of the bed slats didn't line up with the holes, but it was easy to make my own. We bought it to replace an Ikea bed that broke, and couldn't be happier. This bed doesn't sway or creak like the Ikea did. It's solid and it's beautiful and I'm so happy I took a chance on it. The package did arrive in poor shape, but as other reviewers have mentioned, the bed inside was not harmed at all. In fact, the delivery man actually brought the package all the way into my apartment (we have an elevator building), when I expected him to leave it right inside the doors of the building. I am very happy with all aspects of this purchase.
This is my first review on here although I have bought several items. I felt that I needed to let you know that you will not be disappointed with this purchase. The shipping was an interesting situation as the deliver driver did not speak English very well but we managed. It came in three boxes. One box contained the side rails and that is how long the box was. The second box was the same length as the side rails but contained the stacked up bed slats which were all connected by webbing that keeps them equally spaced once installed. The third box contained the headboard and footboard and was as big as the headboard and footboard put foot to foot. This was not small and had they not actually brought this into my apartment (they were only supposed to deliver into the bottom floor of building/house but they actually took it down the hallway, up the freight elevator and down the hall to my apartment), I would not know what I would have done to get this upstairs. The two smaller boxes say they weighed 39 lbs and the headboard/footboard box was 72 lbs. The box looked like hell but everything on the inside was wrapped and packed with styrofoam to protect and it worked perfectly! I am an average-sized woman with no special skills in putting anything together but I was with a little huffing and puffing (okay, maybe some swearing too), able to put this together by myself. It was awkward to hold the side rails while I screwed them into the headboard and footboard but manged. Getting the slats screwed into the center support was a whole other story. As I said, I am an average-sized woman but it was a tight fit to get my legs inbetween the slats to I could be over the center of the bed support to screw the slats down. My arms would not reach that far to do it so I had no choice but to put my legs down between the other slats. If I could add a picture, I would. I am extremely happy with this purchase and it looks great. I put my split king-size sleep number beds on this and it fit perfectly (two twin xl mattresses). I have an Asian type theme bedding and it looks great but I also think it looks like a very modern piece. A great color too!
I purchased this bed for a guest room in my home. I did not want to spend a fortune but I did not want junk either. This bed is extremely well made as well as being very attractive. Very easy to assemble. I especially liked that the mattress support slats were all attached to each other which took the guesswork out of spacing them.
After searching for quite some time for a "Tempur-Pedic" type bed, we decided on this one. Package came quickly, and tightly wrapped up like a sleeping bag. Once we opened it, it inflated fairly quickly (maybe an hour). I will note that there was a smell to the mattress, but nothing unbearable. Let me tell you, my husband and I haven't slept this well in years!!! My only complaint is that I do not notice it having a "cooling" sensation. Not that big of a deal, but I wouldn't advertise it. Overall, I love this mattress and would definately buy again!
Purchased this platform bed in a king to go into one of my guest room along with the Hand-tufted Spirit Wool Rug (5' x 8') and quitl set and it is amazing. The bed took 3 hours to put together and looks as if it cost 3 times the price. I just love this room - I had to sleep in it the first week because it was so pretty. It has been in there for 6 years now and still looks new. Never had any problems with the slats cracking and kids have jumped on it and it has seen many guest. The price is amazing for the look and quality. Love it!!!!

As others mentioned, have a drill handy for those holes that are not properly drilled or not in the right place. Once you know that, it comes together pretty easily and looks great! The king size fits great on the width but matress fits really tightly on the length. It's a little difficult to tuck in the sheets. Still gets 5 stars!

I bought this bed because I was looking for one that didn't have a very tall headboard. This is a very classy bed. It has a very nice cherry colour. It does have slats across the bottom, which was a requirement for any bed I bought. A very solid piece, it was easy to put together! While it does say it's compatible with a box spring, it becomes very tall. This may surprise some people, so be aware. If you're looking for a standard height bed, you don't need a box spring.
We ordered this bed to match a room full of matching dressers/armoires, etc. We needed a dark espresso finish frame in a King size, and this fit the bill. This is a great bed for the price. The color is a slightly more cherry/red finish than true espresso, but it still will match most dark sets. It arrived on time, the box was NOT crushed, and all the pieces inside were in good condition. Took two of us less than an hour to assemble it, including the the 12 slats that support the King size and all the pieces worked. It looks nice and is open and basic and seems sturdy.
I was definitely apprehensive about buying such a large/expensive item here, but I am so glad I did. First of all, the picture does not do this bed justice. It is much more elegant in person. The quality is great. It's a truly beautiful bed. If you are on the fence as I was about it, I urge you to go for it. You won't be disappointed. Delivery was quick, it arrived within a week from CA (I'm in CT.) The boxes were a little beat up, but the bed was in perfect shape. It was set-up within 30 minutes. Overall, very pleased with the whole experience.
I ordered this bed on 5/22 and I received it only 11 days later on 6/2. The box was very beat up and torn on arrival, so I was worried that the bed might have been damaged in shipping but the bed was in great shape. The color is true to the photos and assembly was a snap. I LOVE this bed. The height is great and it feels very luxurious. 5 STARS!!
Well made product. The look and feel of the wood finish is excellent. The bed is also rather easy to assemble but the instruction sheet is a joke. Before assembling study the drawings carefully to make sure you align the side and middle rails correctly. Took us less than an hour to put together.
