Easy to assemble and very solid ensemble. Color is true to picture display. Almost zero tolerance in terms of mattress fit--queen mattress fits tightly within rail enclosure, so changing sheets is quite a rigorous maneuver. Overall, very please with this modern platform bed.
I was very concerned purchasing this bed at first because the supported weight limit was not available. I spoke with Overstock when ordering and they said it is typically 400 to 500lbs for Queen sized beds, but they do not weight test them, because these come direct from the manufacturer and it is not required. As far as weight goes, my heavy 14" Mattress with 2 people on it seems to have help up so far. There are a lot of boards and slats, so support is there and I am sure that the weight limit is supported. There are 2 dowels for the center board support as well. You can purchase a piece of plywood at home depot if you are heavy and feel that your weight may be an issue with this bed. Overall, its very sturdy. The wood is well constructed. The bed itself took an hour to assemble and came in 3 boxes. Shipping was fairly quick as well. There was good packing in the box to prevent damage to the wood. The Bed is true to color with a cherry touch and a dark brown finish. It is literally only 5 1/2" off the ground, very low, so there is limited room for Storage. I purchased a rubber made zip bag to store shoes under me bed, but it was very difficult to find something only 5 1/2" high. You will need a screw driver or drill for the slats, and it helps to have a screw driver with Allen key attachments when tightening the sides to the bed for extra torque, ease, and stability. Overall, I would recommend this bed. Overstock offered a 15% coupon and ordering this over the phone was a breeze. It really costs nothing once all is said and done. It is much cheaper than what you would pay at a furniture store, and is probably better quality too.

Great bed for a minimalist. We bought this bed 6 months ago and love the look and value. We searched local furniture stores but the average price for this type of bed was considerably higher. We do have a pillow too mattress so more of the headboard is covered than what you see in the picture. My only concern is that the slats are very narrow and our mattress is very heavy.
LOVE this bed! Was originally hesitant buying it with only one review posted. So thankful I bought it. Overstock packaged it wonderfully in 3 separate boxes, arrived a day earlier than expected. Color was true to picture and description. Very easy to assemble, no issues at all, took only 45 min. Wood is sturdy and very solid surprisingly. Have received many compliments on bed by family and friends already. Looks much more expensive than what I paid for it. Overall tremendously happy with bed so far. Also bought an Overstock pillow top, which makes the bed even more comfortable. Overstock has great customer service and coupons for first time customers. Will definitely buy again on this site. Very positive experience!

After searching for months for an affordable but stylish bed I finally gave in and went for this one. Overstock had it shipped the next day and I received it in under a week. It arrived in 3 large but not at all heavy boxes. Unpacking everything I found no damage whatsoever and it all seemed very well packed. I am even more pleased with the color in person, and it looks and feels like a quality bed that should have cost a lot more. It is very sturdy feeling and I expect will last years. Assembly took no more than an hour and is very straight forward. You will definitely want a power screw driver for the bed slats as they screw directly into the side board and there are no pre-drilled holes on the supporting side. I am incredibly picky about my purchases, and I really couldn't be happier with this one!
I was hesitant to buy my first platform bed; especially online. The reviews for this one are spot on. The bed looks great, is easy to put together (you do need a drill), and the bed is very study. I am a 230lb man and sleep in it with my two dogs and have had no issues with support. My memory foam mattress works great on this bed (no boxspring) and the slats provided are very sturdy as well. I would recommend this bed to anyone.
I really love this bed my only problem was that it needed more slats in my opinion. I have a memory foam mattress and I wanted to support it. My solution was plywood on top of the provided slats and it has enough support. Other than that everything is amazing! It took approximately 30 mins total for my fiancé and I to assemble (goes much faster with power tools). My favorite part is how low it is, exactly what I wanted.
This bed is absolutely beautiful and looks much more expensive than it is. It was relatively easy to put together--I did it by myself--but you absolutely need to use a drill because holes are not pre-drilled in the slats. I guess you could do it with a screw driver, because the wood is soft, but it would take a lot of time and muscle.
I was worried about ordering a bed online Site unseen. After reading the reviews, I decided to take a chance. Bottom line Believe the reviews. The bed is beautiful, affordable, sturdy, and easy to assemble. Yes, two people putting it together is better than one. Yes, you need a drill to make the job less onerous. When they come back in stock Get one. A believer.
i ordered this bed along with 2 matching nightstands and the 6 drawer dresser. the bed is beautiful and better in person than the pictures. the bed was easy to build and took me about an hour to build it. highly recommend this bed if you are interested in buying it.

I've never bought a bed online; actually, I'd never bought a bed before in my life (I had inherited beds/futon frames). I didn't expect to buy one online that had just a single (admittedly excellent) review. I was nervous. Much to my delight, the bed is more beautiful than it appears in the photos--it has a deep reddish hue that I wasn't expecting--quite classy. Though I've only slept on it for one night, it seems to be sturdy and it certainly makes the mattress a lot comfier. Quick, easy, and painless assembly.

Before I decided to purchase this bed I looked at a few other options in the $500-$1000 range. I narrowed it down to 3, and then the Kota went on sale for under $400, so I figured it was worth it to save a few hundred with this one. When I received the 3 boxes I was impressed with the weight of the bed. I unboxed everything and the color of the wood is 100% true to the photos. Attaching the headboard, side rails, and footboard was simple enough using the supplied screws and allen wrench. After everything was tightened the bed had a nice solid feel. The next step is to attach the cross slats and center support beam. This was the most time consuming step in the process. Overall, the assembly of the bed took me about an hour and a half. I am impressed with the finished product. It's solid, has a nice look, and is excellent quality for the price paid.
