The bed is very solid and sturdy.. no squeaks or wobbles. Easy to put together if you follow the directions exactly. Looks just like the higher priced ones. I ordered a low profile box spring from Macy's but they sent a regular one. It sits a little high but still looks nice. It would be perfect with a low profile box.
Nice bed for the money. The headboard is actually a brushed chenille which was a nice surprise and warms up the coldness of the metal. Knobs at top are not a big deal. Going to hang three sets of black and white stripped curtains and it's going to be amazing.
Have had this for about 9 months now and love it. Ended up needing a box spring with the mattress or the headboard is not at the right height. It is solidly built. There are cheap plastic caps for the top of each poster but they were ugly so I didn't use them. Very happy with the purchase.
...but this bed cannot be put together by one person. You almost have to be into puzzles to put it together on your first try (with help) and I'm talking way more tiny parts than *****, but once it's put together it lasted a pretty long time. However, if you lose one of the tiny screws or washers during a move or something the bed will be so squeaky and rickety it'll drive you insane. Other than that, the bed is lovely.
The bed is sturdy and much easier than we thought to put together. However, you do need two people at points. The bed is very simple but does make a statement in a room. Some of the poles were scratched (the 4 star) when they arrived but otherwise the quality of the bed is good and the value can't be beat.
Looked for a long while for a contemporary canopy bed and was persuaded by good reviews to purchase this bed. I didn't want black and spray painted (a case of paint) blue. Assembly by husband went fairly smoothly with a few screw problems. Fits well is smaller bedroom. Seems sturdy and is attractive
I bought this bed over two years ago and it's still holding up very well. No squeaks, no loose parts, no having to crawl under the bed to tighten anything. It was, if I remember correctly, a two-person job that took the better part of an afternoon to assemble. Since it's a queen that ended up in a very tiny room, it was assembled in one place and then gingerly moved and finished in the bedroom. I've hung curtains from the top of the bed for privacy and light control, and it's not too difficult to take off one rail at a time and slide on drapery hardware (probably would have been better to have some kind that clipped on, but I didn't). It's a very easy way to customize the bed, provide light control, and give the cats something to hide in. It also helps relieve the very austere and fairly simple lines of the bed, and give it some softness and character. Speaking of cats, the padded headboard is quite durable. The fabric covering seems to be very snag resistant, withstanding the occasional onslaught from my cats. All in all a good purchase.
Really nice frame. Arrived well packed. Frame is nice heavy weight metal - rock solid once assembled. A bit of trouble assembling toward the end with sides lining up with headboard. I gave it 4 stars for design because I'm not in love with the side rail detail (really wanted something more simple). This is a great option got the budget - other canopy metal bed frames were over $*** (Room and board is my fave but I just couldn't bring myself to spend that kind of money on a frame I may want to change in a few years).
Came in 2 very heavy boxes, that UPS managed to destroy, but the bed frame was packed very well and had no damage. Assembly is easy, assuming you can follow written instructions. It was missing one very important nut/bolt..but happened to have the same exact size that I needed just laying aroundthe house so I did not have to call and you have a part shipped, although instructions clearly set on the last page to give them a chance there was anything wrong and or missing and call to let the manufacturer know and they will take care of it. bed looks great and is obnoxiously sturdy! Wish that I didn't see the screw heads everywhere.. even though they are painted to match the bed frame I can still see them. Overall very happy with my purchase, would give it 4 out of 5 stars
