So, the product isn't bad for the price. It's a "hefty" piece, but the craftsmanship can be improved. So of the pros and cons below:
- It's a heavy, substantial piece;
- Color is nice;
- Assembly is fairly easy, except for the written instructions;
- Got here in a few days;
- Adjustment of height is a nice feature.
- Missing several parts (washers) from the packet;
- The headboard is "wobbly". If you have a baseboard and the headboard is unable to sit directly against the wall, it wobbles. Just not enough support from the bracket;
- The fabric on top of the headboard isn't "smooth". You can easily notice the inconsistencies (i.e., lumps) in the fabric.
- Some of the "nails" on the front weren't aligned;
- Small grease stain on the front of the headboard.
All in all, not a bad piece, but you can tell the manufactured "rushed" to get these completed. Although, for the price, it isn't bad. Make sure you know the color is "brown" and not "purpleish-brown" as noted on the photo (we have a Mac).
Hope this helps!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Not accurate - actual color is brown
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Fair
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate, however, the website says it comes "assembled", which is not correct.
I am impressed with the headboard. It looks amazing in my bedroom. We have it on the tallest settings and it definitely completes the bed. The color, texture and nailheads help keep it masculine enough for my husband and the shape adds a softer element for me. The first one that was delivered became damaged in shipping, I called immediately and they resent a new one out immediately without any problems.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is a bit more green than it the picture
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very. The material looks like a rough linen. Very similar to the textured fabric of the restoration hardware headboards
Received my beautiful headboard yesterday! The quality and craftsmanship is amazing! The color has more of a yellow/brown undertone, It's neutral enough to go with most color schemes. My hubby put it up in no time ;) It defiantly completes my lonely Cal-King... ;)
I like the shape, The color name is "brown sugar" read the reviews it's brown but has green tones as well Olive or Khaki green I think help you understand the undertones and it's much darker than pictured. The nail heads are individually set and are a brown/bronze color. It is extremely heavy and almost impossible to move the bed once attached to the frame. Has several different height options. The padding is nice and comfortable and the headboard is substantial and stable.

I read all the reviews on this before purchasing. Someone said that the coloring on the headboard was more like the greenish color of the pillow in the picture. We were hoping he was correct! The color is a rich gold/green/mix. It's really beautiful. They should change the picture as it looks like you are getting a beige or light mocha color?. We almost did not purchase because where we really liked the style- we didn't like the color in the picture!! - but it was neutral looking and you can always change fabric if needed. This is heavy, well made and we love it. Anyway look at the pillow on the chair in the picture if you want a more accurate color.

For the price, this was a great find for our vacation home. It arrived and one piece was broken. The customer service at Overstock was so helpful and was able to quickly arrange delivery of just the broken piece, so that the whole thing didn't have to be sent back. We love the headboard and think it looks way more expensive than what we paid for it.
I bought this headboard for my master bedroom. I didn't receive a confirmation from Overstock and I thought the order didn't go through so I was surprised when it arrived in about two weeks. It arrived with no damage and was relatively easy to put together. It took maybe two hours at most and all the parts were there. The directions were a little confusing but not indecipherable. We had to drill holes in the support bar which seemed odd since there were holes in the other wooden piece to which the support bar attached. Once assembled the headboard looked very nice and is a good buy for the money. It is not of the highest quality. For example, the backing shows a little bit around one edge but is not really noticeable unless you are really looking for it. The color is a little challenging as mentioned in other reviews (not chocolate brown or khaki but kind of brown with some greenish cast in certain light and some grey.) I was worried about the color but have since found drapes at Pottery Barn that are nearly the same color (Dupioni silk in Brownstone, I believe) which I will hang behind the bed. All in all l think this headboard is going to be a nice addition to my room and a good buy for less than $300.

Will this headboard stand up on its own or does it have to be secured to a bed frame? We have a tempur-pedic bed which does not have a traditional bed frame because it is adjustable.epilotti39 on Jun 11, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Spot clean only with water based shampoo or foam upholstery cleaner. Pretest a small, inconspicuous area before proceeding. Do not over wet. Do not use solvents to spot clean. Pile fabrics may require brushing with a non-metallic, stiff bristle brush to restore appearance. Hot water extraction or steam cleaning is NOT recommended cleaning method. Cushion covers should NOT be removed and laundered. To prevent overall soiling, frequent vacuuming or light brushing with a non-metallic stiff bristle brush to remove dust and grime is recommended. When cleaning a spill, blot immediately to remove spilled material. Clean spots or stains from the outside to the middle of the affected area to prevent circling. Use a professional furniture cleaning service when an overall soiled condition has been reached.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 3, 2012
