I am knocked out by the quality of this bed. The upholstery work is near perfect. The upholstery itself is soft but sturdy. I thought that the legs would be black, but they are stained a beautiful walnut color that matches the antique walnut, bedside table. My husband and I, who are really not into DIY, had no real trouble putting the bed together. Before we purchased this bed, we knew from reading a review that it was not designed for a split box spring. After the bed was assembled, we took measurements for slats. Five slats work great with a split box spring. I almost always agonize over the decision to buy furniture sight unseen, but this purchase in every way exceeded my expectations.
Love the look of the bed. Quality also excellent. Assembly relatively easy. Only problem is that there are only side rails and one center cross bar to support the box spring. There are no rails at the head or foot of the bed. That's a big problem if you have a split box spring, which I have. I'm hoping a couple of pieces of plywood from the hardware store will do the trick. I now have the box spring sitting on the floor awaiting a solution...that's a big bummer.

This bed is good looking. The headboard is quite high which would be nice for reading or watching tv in bed; however, the headboard is made of a horizontal piece that sits on top of the base. It is too heavy for the base and does not have built-in supports so it is floppy. You will have to place this against a wall and expect that it will be slightly lopsided even then. The back is not pretty so it can not stand alone in a room. Ok for a guest room but not for regular use.
It took two of us about 20 mins to assemble. Very nice for the money. Had considered trying to make the headboard myself for my daughter. But with all the costs, this was probably the same and nicer than mine would have been! Heavy boxes, so you need two people. Don't hesitate to buy!
