The bed looks nice, and was pretty easy to put together. However, we were laying (still) in bed the night we assembled it and all of a sudden we felt ourselves sinking slowly, diagonally, towards the floor. The spine of the frame attaches to the footboard but does not attach to the headboard at all. It only attaches to the wooden slats via plastic holders. Perhaps we moved a little to one side, shifting the bed - the spine of the platform is not stable and made of very cheap materials, and therefore the whole platform frame went down. It was not an expensive bed - but to not even last one night is pretty bad. It would not take much more investment to make the platform frame sturdier.
Whenever reading furniture reviews, I personally would disregard any review that isn't at least 3 months old. Would I buy this bed again? No. Reason being, the slat system is truly crap. You may be saying, "I'll just buy a new and different slat system," and that's okay, but what you should be asking yourself is, "how come it doesn't already come with a slat system that works?" The bed gets passing marks for looks, easy set up, cost, and design. The instructions are easy to read and pictures are clear, which always helps. In regard to the slats, well, they must've been designed by a talking monkey. I don't see how anyone would be supported on the mid-beam. The mid beam screws into the footboard only, and is supported with four cylindrical legs about 1" in diameter, and 8" in height. There is no attachment at the headboard which in my opinion is the primary flaw with the slat system. I am not an engineer but it seems this lack of headboard attachment is what allows the unsteadiness of the slats. The double-side anchoring design would fix this problem. I read some customers used a box spring, then complained that it didn't fit snug. Well, the Product Q & A states it is a platform bed and does not need a box spring. I purchased a memory foam mattress and it fits, and looks perfect. The problem began with the slats would fall individually out of their plastic brackets. I tried switching the positions of the slats, thinking maybe there were stronger plastic brackets in other sleep pressure points of the bed, but that didn't work. I then tried Gorilla Glue and that worked for a while, but eventually the slats fell again. Usually when the slats fell, the support legs for the beam would break a little. Ultimately, the legs broke and the screws were completely bent. This happened over a period of 3 weeks. After waking up in the middle of the night trying to fix the slats, and laying stiff in bed in order to prevent the slats from falling, I reached the breaking point, and came up with a solution that has worked ever since. I simply cut a 4x4 into four 9" pieces, and screwed them into the place of the original legs. Problem solved.
I bought the bed mainly for the style. I just bought a brand new mattress (and a good one) but held off on a box spring because I wanted a platform bed. The slats that come with this bed, however, SUCK! After one night I've ruined my mattress and its now sunken in in the middle (i'm 128 pounds). I think this bed could actually support if the slats went straight across, rather than having 2 separate columns of slats (looks like a rib cage) that are curved and week. will return my mattress to the floor until i can buy a a platform box spring or something...too bad.
The bed arrived exactly as pictured. My husband put it together by himself in under an hour. My only concern is the slat system that came with the bed. It didn't seem very supportive, so we ditched the slats that came with the bed and purchased a separate bed frame support system that we were able to slide into the big empty space. Though we had to spend extra $ to make this work for us, I still think it's a good value.
Really love this bed, shipping was great and packaged well. Bed looks great was exactly what i wanted, but only 2 nights of sleeping on it the mattress fell to the floor. the support legs gave out after 2 nights even though my husband and i are not large people. they defnately need to figure out a better support system. Would not recommend this bed to anyone unless its for a child.
Before I ordered this bed, I read each review. I was concerned for the mix reviews regarding the support system. I took a chance and ordered the bed based on the most recent reviews. The bed arrived a week after I ordered it. No piece was missing and the assembly was super easy! I have my box spring and mattress on the bed since I like my bed high, and you can still seethe splendor of the headboard. The color is grey and the fabric is linen. The metal trimming is sturdy. The bed is really stable. I had several people sit and lay on it to test the support. The support system is a success.The bed looks beautiful and elegant. I have received so many compliments on it!! The bed fits perfectly with my decor and definitely is the focal point of my bedroom.I am going on my 3rd week with the bed and I couldn't be any happier with it. Great price, great service, great quality and most importantly GREAT BED!!
This is a nice looking, stylish bed, and exactly what we were looking for. The slat system seems to have been improved because we didn't experience any issues like the previous reviewers. One thing to note, the hardware that came with the bed was 2 washers short upon installation. It was more of an annoyance to have to go to Home Depot and buy 2 washer before finishing the bed assembly. It took 2 men about 30 minutes to fully assemble. Bed looks great! We are very happy.
This is a better quality than what I anticipated after reading some of the other reviews. The color is a bit darker grey than I assumed it would be but I couldn't be happier with my purchase! My not-so-handy boyfriend put it together- so I have no doubt you can too.
I am very happy with this product. I was nervous because people had mentioned that it was squeaky...its not at all. I went into buying this thinking i would have to seal all the screw holes to make it not squeaky. This shipping said it would take a week and a half and it arrived in 3 days. It took about and hour to and hour and a half to put together. I used my box spring and mattress because i don't like my bed to be low. I love my new bed frame.
This bed is absolutely gorgeous in my guest bedroom! The quality of the bed is excellent; true linen with the entire bed being upholstered inner and outer, even the headboard is upholstered on the back. A great value!

I am looking to purchase this bed, but am concerned about the reviews stating the faulty slat support system that most seem to have issues with. I would like to know before purchasing what I can do to make this bed functional? Will a regular frame fit inside or under it so my mattress doesn't get damaged? Or how do you rig the slats with ply wood to make them stronger? Please and thanks in advance!overstockshopper327 on Mar 31, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
