I was leary of buying this bed because there weren't any reveiws. I did it anyway and I'm so glad I did! This bed is beautiful! I was impressed with the quality and sturdiness for the price. There is just a slight antiquing effect that you don't see in the picture which made me like this bed even more.
The bed arrived UPS in 3 days from Oakland CA to Henderson NV so far so good...the 2 boxes didn't weigh much. Opened and all hardware was accounted for (not heavy duty, but OK - required Allan wrench provided) would prefer regular or Phillips, but since this was made in China, I understood. Color was white with a few tan smudges perhaps to give the bed an antique look. Tubing was a medium gauge steel, definitely not iron, and where the tubing was curved, it seemed a bit flattened (but not flat) out, showing the bending process used, unlike a real iron bed. In defense, a iron bed like this one would cost double and weigh twice as much. Finally, the headboard came in a top section which sat into 2 front legs. One of the legs had the holes drilled upside down, but I drilled the correct holes through the steel tubing and was able to make it work OK. All in all, an OK bed for the price I paid, fairly straight forward assembly instructions, and really looks like a more expensive old time iron bed.
LOVE our new bed! I'd been looking for a vintage inspired metal bed for a while, with most being actual antiques (and therefore out of my price range) this seemed like a solid compromise. It shipped in a day or two, and within the week it was delivered. Easy to assemble with two people. Very sturdy and even more beautiful in person than I could have anticipated. Very impressed with the quality and beauty.
I really like this bed frame. It was not too difficult to put together by one's self but.....it would have been easier with another person to help hold the pieces together while screwing the parts together. It is plenty sturdy enough for my quaint guest bedroom. The finish is good; I like the color. It goes well with an eclectic decor. The antiqued, soft off white color bed frame was over priced in my opinion. I didn't want to wait for the price to go down so I'm pleased with my purchase even at the price, and I recommend it.
We've had the bed for 3 weeks and the middle stabilization leg has already broken. We are using this bed in our guest room so we had one person sleep on it for one night and it is already rickety. Unfortunately, this bed was a disappointment.
Simply gorgeous bed, and the best price for it is here on Overstock. I was concerned about the quality of construction after reading the bad reviews mixed in with the raves here, but decided that if it was really pitiful my dad could always reinforce it with some heavy duty pipe and some welding... after all the center supports are hidden beneath the bed, and a bed skirt totally removes them from sight. May I suggest that those who found it unsturdy should learn how to properly tighten things, or teach their friends not to jump on the furniture. Perhaps they neglected to screw the support bars to the frame, which would allow the bolted on center supports to move. Its a wonderful buy. I gave it 4 stars because the center legs really should have a bracket that they fit into so there is more strength than the bolt to keep them stable, but they should be fine unless someone abuses the furniture rigorously. Use a pair of pliers instead of the little wrench included so you can really torque the nuts onto the bolts. Put some muscle into it and its doubtful you'll have any issues with this bed.
I purchased this for my daughter, and it went together easily with her help. It is stable when assembled, and is of above average quality. An excellent value for the price. One note, it is an antique white, with painted "antiqued" accents. Which is fine, but it is not the "bright" white of most other furniture if you are mixing pieces. Overall, I would purchase this product again.
Just received our bed yesterday and it's exactly what I was hoping for. It looks just as good in person as it does in the pictures. The metal isn't that heavy, which makes it easy to put together. Hopefully it will be durable! Definitely seems like a steal for the price.
We found the bed almost everything we expected. Reality matched the photos available. We could have used a photo view of the support system, where the mattress or box spring goes. We planned on using wood slats across the framework underneath, but when the bed arrived, we found the side rails had no place for the cross slats to rest. Also, maybe an inspection at factory or before packaging would have discovered a rubber foot had been damaged. It almost is pushed up into the tube. Still functional, however, we put the bed together the rest of the way. We liked the fact that the manufacturers included an extra nut or bolt here and there in the packages. A little additional expense for the company, but saves on headaches with customers not having enough pieces, especially if one drops and disappears down a crack in the wood floor. Overall, very satisfied with our purchase -- and the price at Overstock.
This bed is beautiful! It is a slightly antique white color. Not off-white, just a warm white. I have it with a white duvet with no problem. It is antiqued, with brush strokes particularly around the embellishments. There are also occasional bush strokes in a rusty color - faint and not obtrusive. I was happy with the look, but this is NOT a totally solid paint job or a bright white. It went together easily and feels sturdy, although when moving it it doesn't hold a perfect rigid rectangle shape. I made the mistake of dragging it around on the carpet a little too much and the center support leg is angled to the side a bit and needs to be pushed back in place. I think that's my fault! Point is, this isn't a solid, unbendable structure when assembled, but is definitely sturdy and strong. It arrived quickly but the box was pretty trashed. I took pictures in case it was damaged, but the bed was fine. The bag of screws had ripped open, so I collected them as I unpacked. Yikes! Fortunately everything was there. I'm inclined to blame UPS, not overstocked or the manufacturer. I searched a ton for a bed like this and couldn't find anything I liked better, or anything as reasonably priced.
This bed frame is beautiful! It's also a solid piece of furniture, very sturdy. It's exactly what I hoped for. I'd recommend two people put it together, but it is possible by yourself. I think getting the frame out of the box was the most difficult part. However, it's a small price to pay for the frame (in addition to the bigger price).
A very beautiful bed, a style I have been looking for for a long time! The bed was shipped all over the world to the north of Sweden. It took just a weak. The bed looks vintage and has a very good price. We are very pleased and very happy for the bed and Customer Service is the best you can think of. Thank you!
