I ordered the trundle version after reading previous reviews. It arrives in three boxes. I put this product together myself in less than two hours. I had my husband tighten all joints with a drill afterwards. I bought a XXX mattress from Mattress Firm that dropped right in the top bed. Because of previous reviews, I thought fitting the bottom mattress would be a challenge so I didn't buy one for the bottom YET. The mattress I bought for the top dropped right into the bottom slot with no problem. The only issue is, it is ten 1/2 inches thick and I must lift the couch slightly to slide the bottom back with this thick mattress. I'm a sixty-year old woman and it was no problem. I planned to buy a thinner mattress for the bottom but my husband said no. He feels the slight inconvenience of lifting the couch 1" off the floor to pull the trundle in and out is worth it to have our guests (who come two week a year) comfortable. (A 9" mattress would slide easily) My only complaint about this product is the linen had a couple of snags. DON'T CUT THEM OFF. I used a small needle and poked them back into the stitching. They are now invisible. I searched the city of Albuquerque and all the daybed trundles were either metal or wood. This had the modern look I was seeking. I have no regrets on purchasing this product.
Once assembled, all the exterior parts look great. Very comfortable and the color is nice and unassuming that goes with almost anything. The trundle can fit a mattress or just extra storage. Some of the construction materials are a little "thrifty" but they are fine where it counts. It's an excellent product for the price point, and nice to find a daybed that gives the warmth of cloth.
I love this daybed! I bought it to furnish a studio apartment addition to our house- I was able to assemble it in about an hour- very simple. I bought 9-inch mattresses that fit perfect, but it would easily support thicker. It's sturdy, but light-weight for easy moving. It's big, but looks very elegant. Love it!!
Several people have commented on how nice my tween's bed is. I thought it was a little flimsy - the back is like a cheap headboard but the price is so great I figured I would deal with it or like most tween furniture I would get sick of it about the time it would be falling apart. It is holding up great and I'm decorating her whole room around it. It is very tall bc of trundle and design so it looks bigger than it is
I purchased this daybed to use in our guest room which is small and this bed is HUGE!! It's a beautiful piece though. A couple of things to note though, a normal twin is too small. There are several inches on the end of the mattress. You need at least a 10 in thick mattress to cover the gap in the back. With an 8" mattress, a child would fall through. Pillows will hide the gap, but it's not safe for sleeping - I recommend putting children on the trundle. The trundle slides easily even on carpet and slides completely away from the top bed. It can be placed on the other side of the room. When pushed under the bed, it fits perfectly. So far, we love it!
To help you decide if this daybed is for you, all I can say is how elegant and high end it looks and feels. A solid piece. Very much worth the money and less than hour to assemble. We purchased in dark grey and 100% satisfied. I spray painted old dressers metallic silver, put glass knobs on them and my daughter's room is transformed. Unbelievably classy and gorgeous. Thank you, overstock!
Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful piece of furniture, and the measurements given on the website are accurate. The issue is more that proportionately speaking, it's dwarfing the room I have it in, which is an issue with all furniture made these days, especially when it's put in a house that was built before 1990. My only other complaint is that the backrest could use some reinforcement, as it is only attached to the armrests, with no extra bracing, which makes is too flexible, with a tendency toward bowing.
It is a good day bed for the price, the assembly was very easy. However note, that it is not intended for everyday heavy use. The planks for mattress support are flimsy and if you plan on using this bed a lot I would recommend adding a layer of plywood to support the mattress. It works for us because we bought it for a nursery room to have an extra sleeping space in case someone has to sleep with the baby. It is also very tall, taller than I expected because of the rolling trundle underneath. It is a good option to have a trundle and having an option to place another mattress there and use as a second extra sleeping space, but for now we are using it as a storage and it works great, because it gives you tons of storage under the bed. We got this bed in a grey color and it actually looks very nice and true to picture. I would say that the fabric is a little thin though and you can feel the soft padding underneath. The material is also stretched a little at the spots where it is attached to the frame by metal stapler clips. Overall I would recommend this product if you are not looking for something fancy-looking-every-day-use kind of thing. It does it's job, but will not last for long time.
We bought this for our 2 y/o son. We wanted to skip the toddler bed altogether, and this works great! We let him sleep on the trundle bed, as it is low to the floor. And then when not in use, it simply slides under the daybed. Looks so much nicer than a toddler bed, and we know we won't have to upgrade again for years to come! Added bonus - he can have friends sleep over when he is older and we already have a place for them to sleep! Would highly recommend!
My husband and I put it together in about an hour. Very pleased with the quality for the price. We put 10" mattresses in both places and they work great. As others have mentioned, It would have been better if the back of the sofa extended further down but once you put a bedspread and throw pillows on, it's fine.
I loved the price and the look online but when it arrived I was disappointed. My friend put it together for me, so i can't comment on that part but as I said in the title, it's just okay. I wish the back panel came down all the way, looks fine if you have tons of pillows. Purchased for my guest room, so it doesn't get a lot of use.
This Deco Gray Linen Daybed with Trundle was the perfect solution for our new Florida home. Although we downsized, we still needed an office since we are not completely retired. Didn't want to waste space with twin beds that would only be used periodically.
Purchased this for guest bedroom/office. Was a little leery purchasing since previous reviewers mentioned issues to look for - denim looking fabric, missing pieces, fabric covering the holes, etc... My husband put this together and had zero problems. Maybe the manufacturer read the reviews and made the changes! One can hope. :) Per another reviewer, we did buy a 9in mattress for the trundle and you do have to lift up the daybed a bit to pull it out BUT it's only a bit of inconvenience to make sure guests are comfortable. Very happy with this product! Recommended already to a few others and they were bummed this was no longer being offered.
I like the linen fabric. Just wish the back came with some fabric to fill the space between the top part of the backboard and the back of the trundle bed. As it stands, you need to have enough pillows to make sure that gap does not show.
