Love the bed - it seems very high quality, and as someone else said, it's twin size, but doesn't seem like a child's bed. Very sophisticated and mature style. Great for my college age son's room here at home, which is very small. However about a month after we set it up, he was sitting in bed reading and the headboard broke just with the weight of leaning against it to read. The top rail separated from the side piece. Just called Overstock and they promise to send us another headboard, even though it's been more than 30 days. Love Overstock and their service! I hope they come through. I still gave the bed 4 stars because given the way the rest of the bed appears, I think this may be a fluke.
I ordered two of these beds for a small guest room. I found they are beautifully designed and constructed, but they are larger than I realized and the headboards are quite high. I'm still trying to figure out how to arrange the room to accommodate the beds because of their ample size so if you need two beds in a small room you may not want to order these. I also found that in order to retain the low contemporary feel that they have in the picture online I had to return the box springs I ordered and replace them with a 5 inch bunk bed box.
I have the twin size in a small bedroom and it definitely completes the room. The bed was easy to put together and the wood looks pretty darned good for the price. I have a regular box spring and mattress on the bed right now but it doesn't look like the photo. That combo makes it look huge so I'll either put a piece of plywood under the mattress or find a low-profile box spring. Other than that I'm very happy with my purchase.
This is a very well made bed, solid, easy to put together. It is well worth the money,

Bed came with fewer slats than needed, but you can pick these up at any hardware or home depot store. One was not cut to the right size; a little too short, but again, easy to replace. The frame itself is quite nice looking. IF you look closely, you can see through the stain that it is not a high quality wood, but you have to look close. It really looks very nice. From the photo, it looks like it might work as a platform bed, but it really won't. Only wood slats support the mattress, so a box spring is needed unless you use a plywood board cut to fit. Otherwise the mattress will drop on the ends. My daughter loves it; she moved into my son's room when he moved out and needed a twin size bed. SHe picked this one out and is very happy with it. ALso, it originally came with damage to one box where the side boards were broken in half. Truck driver took it back when I "refused" delivery. Overstock came through and sent a new bed right away, so just a small delay and worth the wait. Original shipment was less than 2 weeks.
