Create a clean and classic minimalist look with this black metal canopy bed by Lauren. You will never want to leave your chic bedroom as you lie under a beautiful antique finish frame, and propped against a cream upholstery foam headboard....more
Two major issues:
1. Frame does not fit a full boxspring as tightly as shown in the photo. Left too much room around the box which does not look great.
1. Another huge concern is that the finials do not fit. I had replacements kindly sent to me by Overstock and those didn't fit either. Hopefully that's a problem that is fixed with the manufacturer.
The big takeaway? The bed has a clean, modern look which is hard to find with canopies. Great price point too. If you can accept its shortcomings with faulty dimensions and go purchase finials on your own, definitely get it.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Correct. Dark gray/black slate.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great considering the price.
UPS lost the second box of the bed so it took another week before Overstock got the replacement to me. Thankfully Overstock was lovely to work with in getting a replacement. The directions for the bed were clear, but putting it together was a bit of a nightmare! Between two people it took 2 1/2 hours to put together because you have to use an Allan wrench for the ENTIRE bed!! If I had known that before I would never have purchased it. Also, there were certain parts that weren't even, but we solved the problem in our own. Another sidenote...you need to have a tons of space to put it together as it is very high and has to be put together on its side which we weren't able to do bc of space limitation so we had to do some improvising. After it is done it is a great looking, sturdy bed...but while i was putting it together with my husband I was definitely cursing it!

I Love this bed and it is beautiful!! My main complaint is the holes are off to put the frame together!!! I blew my back out!! I was a Bxxxx to put together!!! I managed to get it together and it is beautiful!! Assembly is hell!! :)
We purchased this for our 10 year old daugther and couldn't be more pleased. Working with a Lilly P duvet cover, we covered the headboard and upholstered the sides of her box spring, added white mateleese coverlet and shams, white voile sheers and 1 more expensive monogrammed accent pillow. The bed is lovely and so inviting. Because the lines of this bec are clean and classic, it would also work well with a masculine theme.
Assembly: 1 10-year old girl and her brothers (aged 21 and 15) put this together in under an hour. As with anything like this, remember not to completely tighten each section until you have started all the bolts. The machining (hole alignment) on ours was fine.
Quality: We were surprised at how sturdy this bed is. Finish is smooth and even. Intended this as an indulgence for a daughter who wanted to be able to close curtains around her bed. In fact, I think we will have this for years to come. The finials look fine and the bolt ends are not very noticeable, especially if you use curtains. Not sure why, but the full size frame is a bit large for our box spring and mattress (1.5" wider or so)--concerned at first, but it looks fine and there is no shifting. The headboard is tall enough to accomodate box springs of different heights.
Suggestions: If you want to preserve the Napolean Camp Bed style, don't use a ruffly bed skirt. Instead, use a box spring cover or upholster your box spring (super easy with a staple gun).
Bottom Line: Add the right accessories and your friends will not believe where you got it or how much it cost.
This bed is BEAUTIFUL! Especially with a canopy net on it. I'm a fairly small person and was able to build this all on my own until the last step or two. It is very solid and I only had one hole that didn't line up exactly. Otherwise, easy to build, took my about 2 hours alone and everyone who has seen it has loved it! It's an easy way to up the wow factor in your room.
Also... it is the perfect height for underbed storage!!
Arrived on time. I put it together alone, so it took a bit longer. Two of the holes for the mattress support would not line up no matter what adjustment I made ( I am very familiar with power tools), so I had to drill new holes for that. Other than that, it went together as the plans indicated. It looks great for the money spent and I expect it to holdup for many years. I would have preferred an oil rubbed bronze finish, rather than black, but I can repaint if I still think the black is too stark. I looked around a lot for an inexpensive canopy bed that did not look cheap. This one fills the bill.
This is a great value bed, and looks lovely in my room. It was a bit of a challenge to assemble--there were moments when I thought it was not meant to be--but in only a couple of hours I fully assembled it!! With the help of a friend, of course. It was all worth it. And, the price is great. I love it.

How tall is this bed from the floor to the first rail . Would this bed be able to accommodate a trundle?shopper4568 on Jul 4, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your inquiry, shopper4568. This bed is 8.86 inches from the floor to the side rail. I do not know the size of the trundle so I can't say if it would fit underneath. In addition there are three middle legs under the bed that provide extra support. These would have to be removed to put a trundle underneath. This is probably fine but we would not recommend it. We hope this helps. Thank you for shopping with us.

Just bought this frame, but it's difficult to find a box springs in the UK, so, is this box springs essential to to keep it sturdy, or is it just to make the bed higher? For example, if I place loads of wood plank across the frame to hold the mattress, would this be okay?hangnhu on Feb 23, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us hangnhu. The box spring is needed to support the mattress because there are only 4 cross bars. I would look into a piece of plywood that is 5/8 thick, lay it on the frame and you should be good to go. I hope this helps.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 24, 2014

Actually the padded headboard conveniently unscrews from the metal frame and is very easy to cover in a fabric of your choice. We used a Lilly print for my daughter and upholstered her box spring in the same print. It turned out beautifully.riobees on Jun 20, 2014

How many inches are between the bottom of the bed and the floor? And does the bed require slats?silverbook on May 20, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello silverbook, The bed is approximately 7 to 8 inches from the floor to the frame of this bed. This shouldn't require any additional slats unless you are using it as a platform bed. You then would need to retrofit it with additional slats or a bunkie board as this was designed as a standard bed. Please refer to the "image gallery" for all the images of this bed.
