The bed looks great! As experienced by others who have bought this item, some parts, (specifically the holes for the bolts to hold the slats to the support frame) aren't drilled correctly, so it doesn't go together with ease as expected. Since I had read previous reviews on it, I wasn't surprised when I found this issue, but proceeded to put it together by myself. It wasn't easy, but it was definitely worth it once it was complete. Haven't yet used the bed, & realize now that the mattress that I ordered should have been the firmest instead of the medium firmness, but I'll use it anyway. I believe it will serve me well over the years, & it looks GREAT in my bedroom!! Now I'm looking for compatible night stands. I think it will take me a while to find something that I really love to match it.
This item comes in three boxes. When we received it, the box containing the side rails and footboard was obviously a returned item because missing were the four wooden feet, some screws, and even the entire cardboard flap on one end of the carton box. The warehouse needs to do a better job inspecting the shipments before sending them out. I contacted customer service, and they get five stars for promptly resolving the issue by sending me a replacement. Assembly did not go smoothly, probably due to the craftsmanship. In the end, two of the screws attaching the side rail to the headboard and footboard could only be screwed in halfway. I guess not every order will have this problem because some customers didn't appear to have any issues. The four wooden feet also wobbled, but it didn't matter too much once the weight of the bed was sitting on them. Once assembled, the bed looks decent enough with its smooth leather and nice stitching. As one reviewer pointed out, the gray has slight purple undertones, but is by no means purple. It's still gray, just not a charcoal or gunmetal gray.
I spent a lot of time looking for a real leather platform bed and this fit the bill. I like that it's not black/or white as many of them are. Please note that while the colour is as shown on your computer, it's got a slight tinge of purple in it. It is dark grey, but slightly purple-y. With the right comforter, it could downplay that if you wanted. It arrived in 3 boxes and was easy to fit through our extremely narrow staircase (which could not accommodate a sofa bed (hence the purchase of this). The instructions are pitiful. They are one page and minimalist. If you study them, they do make sense (hint: there is a centre support that has double legs). It's doable, and the pieces fit, there's just some head scripting along the way. You will need more than the one wrench they provide but nothing fancy. It looks really good and you can select if you want your mattress seated low in the frame, or higher up.
This is a great bed for the price. Very sturdy and looks like the picture. Works with a low profile mattress and our memory foam is supported well with the metal slats. If you have a softer mattress, just place a piece of smooth 1/4 plywood under your mattress and it will work beautifully(some mattresses require 2.5 inch spaces max and these metal slats are 4 inches apart.) I looked long and hard for a leather bed around $@#% and this finally fit the bill!
I love this bed the quality is wonderful and I love the style! The price is great too. The shipment was extremely fast. Also the slates that hole the mattress are metal which is great cause they don't make any creaking noise that I can't stand! Definitely recommend this!

I was looking for an inexpensive, stylish option to get my mattress off the floor - this delivered!! It is a simple, modern design that really updated my bedroom. I did have some alignment issues putting it together, but I think the key is just not to tighten the screws until all are in place. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it might be after reading a couple of the other reviews. I do like the aluminum slats as they feel very sturdy. The bed has no noise or movement while sleeping so makes for a peaceful night of sleep:) Overall I really like the bed and feel it is worth the money.
Love the look of this bed. As others have mentioned it does have a slight purple tint to the gray but depending on the bedding color you use with this bed you can make it look more purple or more gray. The bed was a little difficult to put together becasue the holes for all the slats did not line up perfectly, but so far this has not impacted how the bed functions. I purchased this bed specifically becasue I did not want flimsy wooden slats and the slats with this bed are strudy metal.
Overall I really like this product. Assembly was a bit of a challenge because the holes for the bolts did not line up very well but once assembled, it looked very nice. The overall quality of the leather is very good. Well worth the money spent.
My order arrived within a week. I used the tracking numbers provided in my purchase confirmation to find out when my order would arrive - that was very helpful. I live by myself, and I was able to get the three large boxes inside on my own. I opened the boxes and took out pieces and brought them up my flight of stairs that way -- otherwise I wouldn't have been able to carry them up by myself. It took me a while to put the bed together because I only had one person - it would definitely be easier with two people. I am pleased with the quality of this bed. It looks exactly like it is pictured.
I love this bed. It is very sturdy and great looking. The bed comes delivered in three boxes. My son put it together in less than an hour. The bottom supports are very sturdy and made of metal. There are about 8 bars across and one up and down. The bed can be set at two heights when put together to either use as a platform or regular type setup. The leather is very nice and a dark grey in color. Looks like the picture. I am so happy with my purchase. Looks very expensive and is of much better quality than beds 3x's the price. This is the first piece of large furniture I have ever bought online, I do not regret it!
We were excited to get this bed after reading all the great reviews. When we got it and started putting it together we realized that we made a terrible mistake. It took us over 5 hours to put it together. The holes for the bolts don't line up with the brackets. In each corner of the frame there was at least one bolt if not two (out of 4 bolts) that just wouldn't go in. We had to leave it as is and hope that it won't break later. Once assembled it looks great and feels sturdy but I'm uneasy thinking about the 5 missing bolts from the frame. I really hope that it never breaks because we do NOT want to put that together again. That was a nightmare! Save yourself some trouble and skip this bed. Not worth it!
This bed is sturdy, beautiful and looks/feels like I spent two or three times as much as I actually did. I will say the mattress I have fits very snugly within the frame...but it does fit. It was easy and intuitive to assemble, all the parts were there and it took maybe a couple of hours to complete (I did it by myself). I've had it now for eight months and it's as beautiful as the day it arrived. I would recommend this to anyone in a heartbeat.
Was really happy to receive this.. looks and feels great, doesn't have any weird vinyl odor because it's made of leather. Well designed-extremely sturdy and appears durable. Compares favorably to beds I've seen in stores costing twice as much.
Pretty good. Solid construction. Nice looking. Not too hard to assemble, although instruction sheet was terrible.
