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.
Love my new canopy bed!!! It's my 1st ever, and it makes a very "stylish, cool, contemporary, 'sexy-ish' impression..." Everyone that has seen it, "loves" it. Orignially, I was desiring a more "frilly/girly" looking bed, with twisted iron patterns on head and foot boards, fancier finials, etc., because I LOVE that "princess" look. But, I decided on this model because I realized that the foam headboard it is built with, would be very comfortable laying up against in bed, particularly whenever studying, reading, writing, or watching tv------- not having to rely soley on fluffy pillows to support my back. Secondly, the "open end" at the footboard (where the typical iron-ish/metal footboard would come all the way up to the top of the mattress) is way more versatile, accessible... in every sense of the word. This bed is extremely well constructed, strong, no "squeaks" from the frame whatsoever, "quiet" as a mouse,------- SOLID!!!! My husband (an automotive mechanic) & 18 year old son, had no trouble putting it together in about 45 minutes to an hour, though they used a screwdriver-type drill with an "allen" wrench bit. I had read previously in a review for this bed, that one was required. Instructions were included. And this company, "Dimensions Furniture," has a very exellent customer service attitude. The box says, "If something is missing, just contact them directly, they want to "make it right!" My only dissapointment would be, though understandable with any "mass produced" product, is that the paint or finish on the metal poles was not perfect, and there is a slight, very fine gap between the top of the foam headboard and the metal frame in which it is encased; finally, there is naturally a very fine gap between the metal poles and the top and bottom of the headboard where they come together with screws, etc., due to the "shape/molding' of the poles at that point, in order to be fastened together. My husband says that this could be alleviated by additional black spacers or "washer-thingees" that the manufacturer could have included with the hardware, which would fill the gaps. I tend to be a "perfectionist," or truly a person of "excellence," and female mind you... so that is why, these "otherwise" minute details, matter to me... Also, this bed in "full-size" only comes in the "cream" headboard for some reason. We live in a tiny, older, 2 bedroom home built in the 1940's, with very cramped quarters (our house is less than 1000 square feet), and our bedrooms will not support anything larger than a full-size bed. In larger sizes: Queen, King, etc., it is available on Overstock with a "gray" headboard which I would have preferred, to coordinate more precisely with my "WINTER" pallette of bedding colors: like deep reds, burgundys, dark purple, deep greens, deep blues, silver, pure white, black, charcoal, etc. Regardless... this cream headboard is actually still a "very nice" shade of cream, prettier than depicted in the photo. So for the moment, it is pairing "very well" with my reversible black/leopard print comforter & pillow shams. Another thing to mention, is that I purchased a "typical," inexpensive, black bed ruffle for my bed as I'm accustomed to using, however I don't think it's the best strategy for this design because you either have to tuck it "behind" the bottom metal framing, or pull it outside the frame, which detracts from the "beauty" of the railing that goes all around the side of the bed, plus the comforter hangs over the "design" of the railing as well, leaving it hidden. I think it was meant for a "different' type of bedding... This is "something" I need to research. All-and-All, it is a wonderful, "excellently-crafted" quality bed, at an extreme value for the money, that I look forward to "nesttling up" in. I still lack the "netting" that hangs from the bars/poles, which will absolutely "complete" the look and feel of this bed, but that's my next project... which I'm carefully taking my time in choosing, to make sure the color, style, quality, and "fit" for the "dimensions" of this bed are "just right"!!! I don't want to purchase netting that has poor reviews, or an overall, poor fit that will require modification. Love It!!!
I have had this bed for about a year now and it is holding up very well. I only had one issue which was that some of the screws that held the padded headboard into place fell out but the headboard still feels like it's firmly attached. The bed is very sturdy and even after a move and assembling and disassembling the bed more than a few times, it is still in great shape. I was looking for an affordable canopy bed that was minimalist in style and on my pocket book and this fits the bill. I hang sheer curtains from it and it looks perfect!
Wonderful bed, looks nice.
Easy to assemble, the only disappointment was the actual Feature of the pretty knobs....... They were impossible to put on, did not click, They did not screw on, so the knobs ARE NOT ON!
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

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. Thank you for your interest.overstockcustomercare1 on May 21, 2013
