Even though this bed is not completely perfect, I love it. I was looking for a canopy bed with a delicate look, and the only other frames I found were well over $1,000. But this is a nice, sturdy canopy bed at a really great price. I have a relatively small bedroom with a tall ceiling, and this bed fits in perfectly. It fills up the vertical space, but because the frame is so thin and graceful (it is definitely not at all bulky, despite being a canopy bed), it does not make the room feel cramped at all. Also, the bed is elevated enough to provide ample room for under-bed storage, if you like. And last, if you are (or share a bed with) a person who is very tall, this bed is great because it does not have a footboard that comes anywhere close to the top of the mattress.
Some drawbacks: Although the bed is well-made in the sense that it is sturdy and provides a good frame, the finish is a little cheap looking in some ways. The finish is matte, but it's faintly streaky once you see it in person (especially when you're scrutinizing each piece as you put the bed together)--and not in a beautiful, hand-rubbed way either. But since the color is so dark, that is not at all noticeable once the bed is put together and you're looking at it from a normal distance (even when you're lying in bed).
Another thing that may be a deal breaker for some is that the finials are very cheap, round, plastic balls. I don't mind them too much because I rarely stare at the very top of the bed frame. However, they are definitely a bit of an eyesore, and I will be replacing them just as soon as I can locate finials the right size.
Finally, the upholstered headboard is fine. However, as noted, it is beige, not white/ivory/cream as suggested in the photo online. Also, the fabric is not the best thing ever. It's basically the same fabric found on most affordable sofas. But it's unobtrusive and provides a good neutral backdrop for whatever bedding you have.
All in all, if you're already thinking about getting this style of canopy bed, then this is definitely a great budget option.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Upholstered headboard is more beige in person, but it's still neutral
I was looking for a canopy bed for my bedroom which has vaulted ceilings. I was hesitant to buy a bed online without seeing it in person, but after reading the reviews I decided to purchase. This bed looks great and was fairly simple to assemble. All parts are lettered and the instructions we easy to follow. The bed is sturdy and the fabric on the headboard is great. Would absolutely recommend!
in the photo it looks like the bed sits low to the ground and works well w/no box spring. that was not the case for me. if i used just the top mattress it did not come up to the headboard, creating a gap. i had to use both box spring and top mattress, which worked out well, expect that the bed ended up being much taller than i wanted it. but i still love it!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? very good
Please tell us about the quality of the product. looks great and so far no issues w/the construction, after sleeping on it for about a year
How accurate was the on site description of the product? mattresses fit/look different than he photo suggests
Clean lines and easy to assemble. Good looking with the cute finials, but the star is the fabric headboard. I had a hemmed square of off-white linen (a cloth table napkin would do also) professionally embroidered (think sports team names on jackets) with my three letter monogram in a stylized script with thread to match my bed linens. I attached it with fabric glue and WOW! You could do hundreds of creative things on this "blank canvas." I also attached two sheer curtains on the poles near the headboard and tie them back. Elegant and lovely!
There is not one thing to complain about. The bed is very solid, having 7 feet for support, it does not move.
I read that the balls that fit on top were problematic, not so, they installed easily and do not detract from the aesthetic of the bed.
It is far and away the best value in the market. The instructions were very easy to follow and complete.
We had a little trouble with the instructions and as a result the lower bolts didn't align as promised, but in fairness, I think this was our mistake in following the instructions and not an issue with the bed. As others noted the plastic balls are cheap looking, but other than that, this bed is really lovely. We were extremely pleased and my daughter describes her new bed as "dazzling"!
I'm so glad I purchased this bed. It's perfect for my queen mattress and the design is simple, yet elegant enough to last for years. The backing is very smooth and beautiful and I noticed it's only attached by screws so recovering for different looks won't be a problem. I love it!
Decent quality frame - it's solid and looks more expensive that it is. My 1 complaint is that the little ball thingies intended to cover the ends of the canopy poles actually do not FIT. it looks really silly to have 3 smashed on crookedly and have one missing altogether because there was no way to manipulate it to fit.
But overall, I like it.

Just put mine together, its about 35 1/4alycat6 on Mar 24, 2013
Metal...have no idea what specific kind. It's silver underneath where the paint was dinged during assembly. Really heavy is all I can say. The entire bed is weighty, not flimsy. You should be able to find the total weight in the product descriptions. I've had my bed 6 months and I love it.carolmckenzie on Jun 12, 2013
