I ordered this a little worried. This is my first real bed. How would it look in my room? How many pieces is it going to be? How many hours am I going to have to spend putting it together? And once it's up, how sturdy is it going to be? Well all my worries were completely unfounded! It is more gorgeous than the picture. There are only a few pieces to assemble (4 bed pieces plus 3 slats and some hardware). I'm a military wife of a deployed soldier and I put it together by myself in a reasonable amount of time. It's completely sturdy - doesn't wiggle or shake at all! It even makes our room look bigger! The best part is, it showed up only a week after I ordered it despite the oversized item policy stating it could take up to ten weeks. I'm just so happy I took a chance on an online item. I would definitely recommend this bed!
I received the bed with a piece on one of the sideboards broken, and with a defective footboard (cut crookedly, which left a gap when assembled). Overstock's great customer service exchanged the broken/defective product - but the replacements do not completely line up with the carvings. I think it is just a function of the "one-of-a-kindness" of the bed, and I am not having anymore pieces replaced. It is hardly noticeable on this, otherwise, very pretty piece of furniture, but the sticklers out there may be a little disappointed.
I am so pleased with the bed I received. But I do have one major qualm with it. On one side of the bed, the moulding on the bottom doesn't match the other side or the base board. For me this isn't a major problem because I have the uglier side up against a wall, but if I had the bed in the center of the room, I wouldn't be very pleased with this. I actually didn't even notice this until someone else mentioned they couldn't line up the mouldings correctly, or that there was a crack between the base board and the side board. I think these problems both stem from the fact that that side isn't correct. For my bed, that incorrect side is on the right when looking at the bed (notice how the picture only shows the left side). I'm not sure the reason for this error, but if it's something that would bother you, I would suggest you put the bad side close to a wall or get a different bed. I think the manufacturer makes it that way, as one review pointed out they got a replacement that was the same part. Other than that, I love the look of this bed and couldn't find any other sleigh beds with the unique low profile base board and the lovely moulding and details (even if one is uglier!) for this price. Other than that one major negative, which can be easily be avoided with proper placement, I highly recommend getting this bed! Actually maybe one more negative is it's kinda hard to match the merlot color with other furniture and bedding. Plus the matching furniture is too similar and too expensive. To make the bed really stand out I got white sheets, a gold/tan comforter (kind of like the picture) with black geometric patterns, and black nightstands. It's really hard to go dark with this bed, so I'd suggest you also keep that in mind because I got a black comforter and it overwhelmed the beds subtlety warm color.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? In the same light, the same color. But if your room is even a little darker the furniture looks more like a very very deep merlot, almost black.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very high. Smells really good. Isn't mentioned in description, but the bed is made of solid hardwood.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Exact, except I wouldn't want to step on the base to "climb into bed".
Great bed, with solid wood and fits securely together. Great for the price! One corner on the bottom end had a slight gap due to one piece of hardware being just slightly crooked. However, was able to adjust it with tools and fit together great. Nice low height, heavy secure frame with no squeaking or loosening of the joints. Would recommend and buy again!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Just as shown. Very dark, espresso color
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Solid wood and well engineered

This bed is even more beautiful when you see it in person. I shopped all over for the perfect bed and this was it! Delivery was so fast, only 1 week. Easy to set up and heavy wood! I love it and I am looking to be another for the other room!
I must say that I purchased this bed on 01/10 and it arrived in San Antonio on 01/14. Since the bed arrived sooner than I thought, I had to request for the bed to be delivered today (01/20). I love this bed; it is so beautiful. I cannot stop looking at it. :-) The maker of this bed list the color as "Deep Finish Merlot", so please keep that in mind when buying this bed. One to the best purchases I made all year. Thanks Overstock.
Overstock consistently offers quality, attractive items and the Queen Dupioni Bed is no exception! Received this item (ships from IL) in 5 business days! Astounding shipping speed. The delivery company was a dream to work with, I was away when they delivered it and they followed my exact instructions to place this on my back deck - and even covered it with the plastic I provided. Comes in 3 large boxes, very, very easy set up - took approx 20 mins. This piece is just gorgeous. With traditional and classic lines, it is a true espresso color - made of very high quality hardwoods, my box springs/tempurpedic mattress fits snugly and sturdily in the sleigh base. Would highly recommend!
This is bed is beautiful! The quality of workmanship is second to none. I really love the expresso finish, rounded foot board and sleek curves in the woodwork! I was also impressed with the delivery time frame. I received this bed approxiamately 10 days from the date I ordered it - which was a pleasant surprise. I am pleased and would recommend this bed to anyone who likes sleek, understated but not boring furniture.
Beautiful bed. Was pleased with the overall look (looks really expensive). Very pleased that I waited a long time to purchase a bed. Assembly was easy, but some of the screws that came with the bed were not the appropriate ones. Anyways very pleased and would highly recommend.
