I read all the reviews on this bed and besides some negative comments, I purchased the bed any, and I am glad I did. My mother needed a bed close to the floor so that her feet would touch the floor as she exited her bed and this is perfect. The bed is stable and sturdy and the slated used for this bed are strong and and well made. the faux leather looks very nice. Additionally, you will not need a box spring for this bed, unless you wish to have the be sit higher. Great bed for the affordable price, Well packaged, no missing parts.
