I LOVE the way this bed looks. The only issue I have is that it is slightly off in size to comfortably fit a full size bed (about 1.5-2 inches of space between the mattress and the frame on each side) and a queen mattress on the full size frame looked really good since it went all the way to the edge, but overlapped the frame and was too big. Maybe this is designed for European size mattresses? It does LOOK amazing though and it was the best price I saw for a tufted, wing-backed, upholstered bed frame.
The bed looks great and the headboard quality is OK but the most important part of a bed, the support is built very cheaply. The centre beam collapsed after four days and we are normal weight people. Overstock customer service was very helpful with the return and we've bought other quality items from Overstock but the experience has made us rethink buying furniture through this website.
The bed looks beautiful on the webpage. When I removed the head board from the packaging I immediately noticed that this is not a true nail head design. There are nail heads about every 2 inches or so that secure a "beaded" piece of metal to mimic nail heads. Ok I could live with that. If you note the webpage picture you will see that he box spring is completely boxed in by the rails. This is not the case. About an inch of box spring is visible. The "box" created by the rails and low footboard to encase the box springs is oversized. About 5 inches around the complete circumference of the bed.. I double checked the invoice to ensure that I purchased the King, not the California king. I had in fact ordered the King and the box is labeled king. I will be discussing return of this bed in the morning with overstock. My advice would be to measure your box springs and comparing your measurements to the ones listed. I wish I had done this prior to making the purchase.
Bed is wonderful if you are looking for a modern and clean look. The bed is a great feature in the guess room. After placing the boxspring and mattress on top the bed was high. Would Recommend
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is similar but to add color to the room you may want to add a bright bedspread
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. great quality. It took a while to assemble.
I've been sleeping on a mattress on the floor for about a month because I was waiting for this bed to come back in stock. I was drawn to this bed because it looks beautiful and it's at a great price. I was so excited when it came back in stock that I ordered it right away. When I got it, I assembled it that day because I wanted to sleep on it that night. It took a few hours, which was expected, but what I did not expect was parts to be missing/wrong size, a mismanufactured essential piece, and issues with the wooden euroslats. Some of the lock washers, washers, and screws were either not included or the wrong size. This isn't as big of deal because I can just buy them at a hardware store. The most frustrating part though was that the iron pipe that supports the center of the bed had the part that connects it to the footboard soldered onto the wrong end. Consequently, the holes for one of the screws that attaches it to a perpendicular pipe is nonexistent, therefore making the bed unstable. Irritated and wanting to just go to bed, I assembled the rest of the bed by putting the euroslats in. So far it seems stable enough but I'm just waiting for it to collapse someday. Also the euroslats are not very secure. I've sat on the corner of the mattress and had 2 fall out of its casing. Very annoying since it's very challenging to put them back in. I contacted Ovestock and they were very apologetic and offered an $80 refund since they were not able to get replacement parts, even for something as simple as a washer. When you do the math, that's only about a 13% discount, which is not very much. Now, I have to use that money to hire a repairman to create a hole in the support pipe so I don't have do worry about my bed collapsing in the middle of the night. Bottom line: This bed looks beautiful but the underlying problems make me regret not investing more money into a better quality bed frame from a different website.
I've been wanting a tufted headboard for awhile and I couldn't be happier with this. The color is beautiful and the grey matches everything. Great quality and very sturdy. I love it. Its one of my favorite items that I've purchased from O so far..
Overall, the bed is beautiful and well made. The issue is with the built in "frame" that comes with this. It has rails along the side and then uses wood slats to simulate a boxspring. The issue is that if you place a real boxspring on top of these slats and then your mattress, the mattress is entirely too high. If you remove your boxspring and place the mattress directly on these cheap slats, they begin to crack immediately. What I found to be the answer was to remove everything that isn't upholstered. This means I removed all metal frames from within the bed itself, and I'm using a standard bed frame, boxspring, and mattress. The upholstered bed simply acts as a shell for the standard frame that you would buy in a mattress store and looks great. From what I can see - this is the only way to actually use this Wingback bed. Once you make these modifications, the bed looks great! The height is perfect and the sturdiness is perfect.
I really enjoy this bed frame. It was super easy to set up, with two people. My situation was this, I have a full size mechanical bed,. After talking to the Back store they assured me that my model bed would fit in a full size be frame. Most full sized frames are designed for kids. This is perfect! and classy too. I would say excellent for the money, but there was a small defect similar to a cigarette burn in the material on the head board. I am not sending it back for that. It weighs a ton, luckily I was home when the UPS guy arrived with it. I gave him a tip to get it into my place, I couldn't have done it without him.
I love the bed and the way it looks but there we're some issues when putting it together. One side of the wingback was fine however the other side only had 1 screw hole that matched up so we had to improvise. I have a sleepnumber bed with legs and opt'd to put that inside as opposed to installing the wood slats etc that came with the bed and it worked out perfect plus I'm sure alot less headaches (there were so many screws and pieces). Overall I am very happy with the purchase, the finished product is amazing, but be prepared with an array of tools in case your screw holes are off. (Drill, etc).
