The description says this has a matte black finish with a texture. It has neither. It's a shiny black finish with no texture whatsoever. I expected it to resemble iron and instead it more resembles plastic. Even the picture looks like it has a matte finish and texture. It's a nice enough bed if you like the finish, but is not at all what was described or what I expected. Very disappointed.
The bed arrived very quickly and was easy to put together. However, the queen frame did not fit my queen-size boxspring. It took hours and two people to jam the boxspring in on 2 sides, so at least it is sitting evenly on the frame and not tilted to one side. That is pretty disappointing! Otherwise the bed is great.
The finish was not exactly as described by either the description or the reviews I read, it was a bit more shiny & definitely black. Although it was not very heavy, it is fine once it is put together. It was not difficult to put together, but much easier with two people working together. It looks good.

- How is the quality of the product? decent quality, but not particularly heavy
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
i had found a perfect bed for my son and waited for it to come in stock somewhere else. i then found this bed on overstock and it was very similar. after ordering it and receiving it so quickly we now have a bed for him to sleep in. the finish is nothing like the name. its black and shiny. there isnt anything matte about it. the color golden isnt even close. get this if you are looking or black and shiny. we were not but are keeping the bed anyway. its a good bed for his small room. because i ordered the queen, there isnt much room for much else in the way of furniture so its good that the bed is streamlined and not bulky. its neither feminine or masculine so its good for both guys and girls. it came in one week. assembly was easy. now we just wait for the mattress and boxspring to be shipped.
You definitely need a box spring or lots of pillows, because the headboard height isn't adjustable, and sits too high, if you don't have a box spring. But it's a fantastic bed. I was surprised at how sturdy it is. Very nice bed.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Same
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Surprisingly sturdy
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate.
I do like the look of it. It was fairly easy to put together. However, it is not just a queen size frame. It can be a king or a Calif. king. So, with the queen the frame juts out about three inches at the foot of the bed. I was under the impression that I was buying a queen size bed only. In a small room this is precious space wasted.

If I paid $150 for the Kristin Queen Size Bed I would have given it 5 stars. I feel it is overpriced for the product you are getting. It does not have the look of wrought iron. The bed is more suited for a kids room or guest room, not a master bedroom. It okay but had I seen it in a store I would not have paid more then $150 for it. One good thing is the bed frame is made in the U.S.A! WIsh the bed would have been too.
Based on previous reviews, I expected a better quality product. While the bed looks nice, the product is cheaply made of cheap materials. It comes with a bed frame, which was difficult to assemble. The frame doesn't stay together very well. For instance, there are covers for all the "feet" that touch the floor and they constantly fall off. In addition, headboard and footboard do not attach flush to the frame.I also found the product harder to assemble than other reviewers did. First, it was difficult to get out of the packaging, there were thick plastic straps that attached part boxes to the frame, and it was extremely difficult to cut them. In fact, I scratched part of the bed frame trying to unattach one of the boxes. It comes with an Allen wrench, but you can't turn it all the way without hitting the bed frame. My hands actually were bleeding from working with it.I guess for the price it's an okay deal, but I won't be surprised if it doesn't wear well over time.
We purchased this bed for my daughter. She wanted a bigger, more grown up look. Although the item description said that the metal was twisted and black, the item we received was smooth and round and more of a dark grey, my daughter still loved it. It is very sturdy and was very easy to assemble. For the money, it was a great buy. The main thing is that she is happy and didn't mind that it is a little different than pictured.
This bed is great. I had read the reviews before I bought it and went with the queen size instead of the full because of one of the reviews. I'm glad I did. It's beautiful and very sturdy. I put it together by myself (intelligent enough but no engineer!) in about an hour. All parts were present and accounted for. And there were no bad places on the paint, scratches, etc. It's perfect. And I love the color. The delivery was a big plus for me, also. Living in a very small town but having it delivered to my door (for $1 shipping) was so convenient. My shabby chic quilt and shams (also from Overstock) look great on it.
