I have been looking at this bed for along time (online) and by far this is the best price i could find it for and $3.95 for shipping, cant beat that. It is large and comes in very large boxes but it was easy to assembel between me and my husband. Would definitley recommend to others.

I agree with the other reviewer, it is indeed a very heavy bed. It is not difficult to put together though time consuming and use of power tools is recommended. My only caveat remains that I am (STILL) missing hardware to finish the box spring. I suspect I shall have to purchase the missing nuts and bolts myself. It is quite opulent looking.
I bought the white with wenge (very dark brown) queen size. My rating is only based on my expectation and view of the bed in plastic. I will update once my bed is completely together, but after 1 1/2 days - it still is not. I cannot tighten the side rails, foot rail and headboard together. Because the screws sit perpendicular to the hole opening, and the company did not provide a small wrench, it is really hard to get to and tighten. You cannot use a crescent wrench nor socket or pocket wrenches. If anyone has any tips please let me know, I bought a set of wrenches and none of them fit quite right (even bought metric ones since this bed is Italian). Further, the support legs of the bed rails came in a box with 7 screws and washers - no list of parts and no instructions. I called Modloft and even they were confused and apologized. So...while this bed really looks pretty - I cannot comment on it entirely, because of my assembly issues. Delivery - I strongly recommend getting white glove minimum if you have to bring it up any stairs. The headboard is so heavy, I cannot lift up even one side of it more than a few inches. Size - I didn't know if I would want a boxspring with a mattress - you don't really need one, but I bought one anyway - low profile 5" thick. I won't know yet if it sticks up over the side rails because I don't have the rails installed yet. I can see already that the top of the mattress would sit really low if you don't have a low profile box spring - but you also wouldn't want it stick up over the side rails. Learnings: If I had to do it again, I would have sprung for assembly also (if that was even an option). I also would have ordered the king size. I ordered queen thinking the bed would be too massive for my room, but it isn't. Still to learn/verify: 1) White leather worries: I am a little worried about the white leather getting stained/funky with just normal use. I'm scared to take off the plastic! 2) Will my toenails survive?: There is a wood trim around the entire thing, and I have a feeling I'm going to lose some toenails hitting it as I get into bed. 3) What height and width and type nightstands can I get that will look good? I want drawers...but cannot picture different nightstands with it yet. Maybe when I get the mattress on it. 4) Will my low profile boxspring stick up over the side rails? I never could find out how high it was from the mattress rails to the top of the side rails to know if I can use a boxspring...so I went ahead and got one anyway. If I can't use it - that was $270+ down the drain and then, what am I going to do with an extra queen boxspring? Again, the white leather and wood look beautiful - I can't wait to see it assembled properly! :-/

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Looks quality
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? OK - could use more information like height from inner bed rails to edge of side rails
After all the fun of assembly I think this is a terrific piece of design and fully functional.

This bed did not disappoint...it is amazing!!! My husband and I both love it!! Our 2 years old also loves that he can climb on the bed by himself. It is gorgeous, sleek, and sexy. So glad we bought this bed. It is well made too! All the part were wrapped tightly so nothing was damaged upon arrival. If you love this in the pictures, you'll love it in person!! Make sure you know where you want it before you start putting it together. :-)
