I had ordered a completely different bed and after getting two badly damaged deliveries that had to be sent back, Overstock then informed me the bed I wanted was sold out! I was not happy, but they gave me a credit and a membership to the O Club and I ended up purchasing this bed for about *** more. I had wanted a darker color like the one pictured, but when it arrived it was a lot lighter than this picture and I was immediately disappointed, but after going through a complete fiasco with the first bed, I was desperate and decided to keep it even though the color was way off. I am so glad that I did! Yes, the color is much lighter in person (very light tan or burlap or khaki) and that is a little off putting when you first see it, but now I love the color and the bed is solid and well built. It took me and a friend two hours to put it together and I advise using a rubber mallet when putting the slats in. One of us sat on the floor and put the slats together and the other one gently hammered the slats onto the frame. Went like clockwork and if we had studied the directions beforehand, we probably could have finished in an hour. I suggest laying out the pieces and familiarizing yourself with everything before starting. We did that in another part of the room and brought over the pieces as we needed them. That kept us organized and less confused. There are two support slats that make the bed very solid and sturdy and they just "clip" in once the frame is assembled. The cloth on the back of the headboard has about 8" of the outside edges on either side attached with Velcro so that you can attach the "wings" and it is a very cool idea. You could even use it as a secret compartment later :) I have a 13" thick mattress and a full size box spring and it is a pretty high bed (I have to climb in it and I am 5'4"), so I recommend using a low profile box spring (OR none), but there's still plenty of headboard showing (Top three rows of five rows of tufts still showing). There is about an inch or so of opening between the bottom of the frame and the floor, so make sure your floor is super clean before you put this together because you aren't going to be able to clean underneath it without moving it unless you have the thinnest Swiffer on the planet! Overall, this is a very large and very solid bed that looks elegant and is very impressive to look at. It feels like a much more expensive bed and I would highly recommend this to anyone.
Love, love this bed. Took some time to put together but it wasn't difficult. Very sturdy and more appealing in person than in picture. Nervous about spending big bucks and not seeing the product but the write up was spot on. Value was better than everything I researched. Super pleased with our new bed!
I have looked everywhere (including Dallas Market Center the world's largest shopping center for designers) and couldn't find a better bed for the price. All the comparable beds were $2000-$3000 retail price. I have never ordered from Overstock so I took a chance on this bed. It is not as brown as the picture, which I prefer, it is more of an oatmeal color. The only thing I was unhappy with is the shipping process. It took a very long time to get the bed and once it had been delivered to the local delivery company in Dallas they called to tell me I had "white glove delivery" and it was being sent to a different delivery company. I waited another two weeks after it was in my city to even get it and they gave me a window of 9-5 for delivery. Not even a four hour window of time, who really can sit at home all day on a work day waiting for it to be delivered? Then they told me I didn't have white glove delivery and just left it in my front entry way in three large boxes. When putting it together, the directions are fairly easy to follow but I recommend you have one person work on putting all the slats into the black plastic holders ahead of time as this took a while to do and the directions were not very clear on that piece. Overall, a beautiful bed! I also use my boxspring and I like the height.
Silver nail heads. We used 13" memory foam mattress/split adjustable bed within the platform frame. Fits well. Very good workmanship and easy to put together. Looks high end. Color is accurate. Looked for the right headboard for years and found it at o.co. Highly recommend. Took a long time to arrive (they advised how long it would be at time of order placement) but worth the wait. Fair price for product.
The bed is true to color. Easy to put together. Very sturdy and seems to be well made. The only thing I would caution you about is that it is tough for older or larger dogs to climb up on. We use a box spring as well as the mattress, so it is higher than in the picture. Just keep that in mind if you have pets, but if the older animals will use pet stairs or a stool, you will be fine! I love the style!
For a bed under $700 and it is of great quality and beautiful. The material/coloring is more of a tan and white tweed verus one solid color but from a distance it just appears as a tan coloring. The bed is very sturdy. It took two of us a few hours to put together but no big issues or need for power tools. I decided to use my box springs for my king sized bed and am very happy with the look.
This bed looks way more expensive than the price! The quality is better than expected as well too. Visually, I see no difference between this bed and ones I've seen at expensive furniture stores. I love the upholstery on this bed because it's the perfect neutral for our decor...any decor actually. If I had to find something to nitpick at, it would be the wood support slats. They are quite flimsy and some of them have actually broken already... But to me that's an easy home improvement store fix if too many of them break. Overall, love it:)
I am giving the bed a 4 star review only because of assembly. First you need to understand I have assembled very little furniture and it has been a very long time since doing so. Therefore, it took myself and another person a couple of hours initially because I couldn't understand how to attach the wings. I didn't understand from the directions that there is velcro on the back of the headboard. Peel it back to expose the hole in the headboard from the less obvious direction. Once you peel back the velcro it will make sense. I learned that from a friend who pus together and builds a lot of furniture. She found the instructions leave a lot to be desired in this case. (Maybe she was just trying to be kind??) LOL. I would say this is a 2 person job for certain and as anther reviewer mentioned, you need a rubber mallet to pound in the slats. You also need a phillips head screwdriver for the screws. In total it probably took about 3 1/2 hours-mostly because of the wings. I also wish the wings came out a little further but that's just me. All in all, I love the color which is a bit richer than the color in the online photo. It's finished well. I'm using a 12 inch foam mattress even though the slats have a few inches of space between them but I haven't slept on it yet as I'm waiting for the mattress to reach its full potential. This bed is worth it. If you're thinking about it-do it.
This was my first purchase from Overstock I Love my new bed! The color is more of a wheat and not beige color which is even better. The bed came in two (2) boxes, and packaged well. And wasn't difficult to put together. It was on sale...EXCELLENT price! I will DEFINITELY shop on Overstock again
I was hesitant to order a bed that might be quite difficult to return due to its size. The quality and craftsmanship is unbelievable on this bed! I read other reviews saying it rivaled big name design stores, and they are right. It works great with my adjustable bed - sits perfectly inside the platform. I just left out the optional wood pieces that are included. The fabric has held up nicely to a cat with nails jumping on and off the headboard. I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase!
