Good news first. The quilted headboard is really nice and looks more expensive than it is - really really pretty. I was worried about the synthetic fabric, but its absolutely not an issue. It feels nice, and is textured and rich in color. The bad news is that assembly is a bit dodgy. The holes for the bolts in the headboard don't line up 100% with the boards on both sides. On my headboard, one side was fine, and the other was off and didn't have quite enough room for the bolts. You can get around it by tweaking the headboard frame while you put the screws in. If you have a handy boyfriend or husband around the house, or even a second set of hands, this is not such a big deal. But as a single woman with only a screwdriver set, assembly was a little challenging and there was some cursing involved. Definitely worth it for the price though!
The tufting is excellent and I agree with other reviews that this looks much more elegant than one would expect for the price. The instructions on how to assemble the legs and adjust the height are also easy. (And this is clearly designed to fit pretty much any standard metal full/queen frame...supereasy to connect.) The one drawback, to me, is the very flimsy 1X6 (might be 1X4, not sure) pine legs that connect to the metal frame and extend through to the top of the headboard on the back. In my bedroom, I have a floor radiator vent (NYC apartment) that extends about three inches out from the wall, so there is no way to push the headboard back against the wall directly. And because pine does what pine does, i.e., it BENDS and FLEXES, the headboard wobbles a lot when the bed is, uh, moving...use your imagination. And the travel distance is significant: the top of the headboard is about three inches from the wall static, but when the bed is moving, sometimes the top will hit the wall, which is quite annoying. I am still trying to figure out a way to attach some 2X4 pieces to the 1X6s to act as a pad/buffer or whether I should just replace the 1X4s with 2X4s, which would require some doctoring of the wood at the bottom to connect to the metal frame. (Where the 2X4s connect to the headboard itself wouldn't be too difficult; simply drill holes in the right spot and get longer bolts of the same current thread to connect.) I would highly recommend Humble + Haute spend the $2 per unit to supply the sturdier wood and raise the price $**...it would make a world of difference in the sturdiness of the piece.
the way that the headboard attaches to the bed frame is less than quality design. If someone leans against the headboard say to read in bed (not unusual) the headboard will likely hit the wall, cheap wooden legs on the headboard will snap and break. We had to put the headboard right up against the wall which may lead to damage and go out and buy some furniture cushions for chair legs to hopefully avoid damaged wallboard. Watch out. The headboard looks great, just wish it was stronger construction, better design for attaching to a bed frame.
Color is a Taupe material blended with off white, Tweed like but smooth. Looks elegant. It has the boards in the back where you can adjust the height for any bed.I screwed it into an ordinary queen metal frame. Overstock does not supply those screws, bought them at lowes for $X. Looks great, picture really doesn't do it justice. Very happy with this purchase.
My headboard arrived quickly and in great shape. It was light enough that I ( a 56 year old woman) carried it easily to the second floor. All parts were included and putting it together and attaching it to our old metal bed frame was a breeze. The color is a lovely light taupe and the fabric looks like linen. I would say that this headboard would enhance any décor! Love it!
I bought the headboard for my teenage son. It serves a purpose, but it isn't the most substantial headboard and seems a little flimsy. Hopefully he won't be too hard on it. The headboard looks good in his room, but I've asked him not to push it. Maybe if the screws were a little longer I would feel like it was more substantial where it is attached to the bed frame. It just seems like it might break off.
Ordered this headboard as it was one of the shorter ones I could find and did not want a tall one as there is a window I did not want to block behind the bed. The brownish linen works well, maybe not super high quality but the look is what I wanted. Also nice...the legs are WOOD and not steel. We ended up trimming it down a bit more and that was possible. So many headboards have metal legs and we would not have been able to do that! So if you are looking for one you can monkey with this is perfect!!
