This is a beautiful replica of an antique bed - in fact, I just watched an old black and white movie with Rita Hayworth and she was sitting on an identical looking bed! The bed is as pictured with a dark brown/almost black finish (no mahogany gold). I had an all steel queen frame previously, which was very heavy and hard to move - this bed is neither. It isn't quite as stout as my old frame and that is the only reason I rated it "Good" for quality. In and of itself, it is a beautiful, nicely made bed; it arrived in perfect condition with all parts; it shipped VERY fast and the free shipping was a huge bonus (I had been looking at one elsewhere but declined because shipping was $75.00!) Very happy with this purchase!
My husband and I purchased a new king-sized bed and needed a new frame. However, after spending more than we had budgeted for the mattress, we were left with a small amount for the frame. Surprisingly that didn't matter! This bed with headboard, footboard and frame is fantastic. The simple styling is elegant and understated and goes perfectly in our country home. This product seems well made and was easy to put together. The finish is slightly shinier than I expected, but it doesn't really bother me. For the money, this was a great purchase.
The Kristin bed frame is a great bed frame for the price. A few things to note is that the headboard is slightly shaky because it's so tall. And with the box spring, the bed sits up pretty high above the ground. Overall I am very satisfied with the bed frame and would definitely buy it again.
This is a great bed frame so long as you understand that it's just a frame and nothing else. As in, there is nothing on the bottom of this frame. No boards, no nothing. So make sure that you get a box spring to go under your mattress or you will not be able to sleep on this bed. We ended up buying wooden planks to use prior to our box spring's arrival. It was a major pain. Definitely get the box spring & the mattress together so that you don't endure what myself and my fiance endured while waiting for the box spring to come. At the end of the day, this is a gorgeous frame. Its nearly perfect in every way. I love it
