I bought this bed a couple of years ago and was very disappointed. The bed appears exactly as pictured and is beautiful. However, it is not a very sturdy piece of furniture. The individual it was purchased for hated it as it was very noisy and mobile with each turn and reposition throughout the night. If it is a beautiful looking bed you're wanting, this is the one you're after. If it's a quiet nights sleep on a solid sturdy bed, then you might want to pass on this one.
I like the size of this bed and the frame. The only problem I have with it is the screws that hold the bed together tend to come loose over time because there is no way to lock them in place (at least not with what came with the bed). I use LockTite in order to hold them in place because I was afraid one day I was going to get into bed and the frame would fall unexpectedly. If you get this bed, just make sure to get something to lock the screws in place because they do become loose over time.

We purchased this bed for a spare bedroom we are redecorating. I was skeptical in purchasing this bed based on some of the reviews but decided to make the purchase anyway because I liked the style of the bed and it was what I was looking for (simple but elegant). The bed arrived timely and appropriately boxed in the 3 boxes stated on the website. Although the box with railing had a slight tear that appeared it was from the carrier's handling. I only mentiond that part just in case any potential carrier business partners read these reviews for an opportunity to improve! With that being said, my husband and brother had this bed put together in approximately 20 minutes. I was really impressed with the quality of the wood and how nice the bed looked for such an incredible price! This was my first purchase with Overstook and I'm looking forward to future purchases!!! By the way - my brother states the previous mattress set sleeps better with the new bed. Even if this purchase had not gone well, I would have definitely written a review! As a consumer, I work hard and I DON'T play about my money!!!! Happy shopper with O!
It took maybe 20 minutes to put this bed together, it came in 3 separate boxes I had read a review from someone that after a short time the screws started loosening, so I used blue Locktite on everyone of them. I will tell you that this bed is as solid as it is beautiful, l' ve been sleeping in it for just over two weeks now without one squeak. I sit up with my pillows on the headboard, and I feel very secure that it is sturdy. I am not a lacy frilly kind of girl, so I was kinda afraid that this would be over the top. This bed has just enough femininity without being over the top...I love it! With my box spring and pillow top mattress, it is at a very comfortable height and I don't have to use a stool, like I see with other beds. This was a great buy!

This bed could be the worst purchase I have ever made. It is beautiful, but it is riddled with problems. I am still furious, and I cannot even assemble this thing. First of all, a hole for the bedpost does not match up to the rail, making it impossible to screw it in. Secondly, I was obviously sent the wrong bedframe for this bed. It doesn't line up to the bedposts. Also, there are myriad problems with the frame. There is no center rail, causing the mattress to droop in the center. I hope this is a one-off for Overstock. I would return it, but I guess I will have to go out and get another bedframe and drill holds into the beautiful bedpost to make it work. I need a bed, and I don't have the time to return it.
