Give your bedroom a sophisticated update with this sleek contemporary faux-leather bed. This platform bed features three metal center legs for support and a bent wood slate system that eliminates the need for a box-spring....more
I bought this item primarily because I was looking for an inexpensive, low-profile, simple/contemporary bed frame. I'm not a fan of what I call "shin bashers"---you know, those beds with a 4-12" diameter wood framing which absolutely LOVE to wreak havoc on your shins and feet (especially in the groggiest of hours)... and this bed certainly mitigates those injuries with its almost-flush panels wrapped in an impact-compatible foam. You're unlikely to hurt yourself w/ this one! =)
Low-profile beds also tend to be exorbitantly and unnecessarily expensive. They use fewer materials, construction is simpler, and yet they cost 2-7x as much. This bed will do the low-profile* job without breaking your budget. *NOTE: Do not use a mattress larger than 8" thickness. The photo led me to believe that the mattress was more inset than it really is---the slats are only 1-1.5" below the top of the panels. My 11" mattress looks absolutely ridiculous.
Mattress thickness aside, this frame looks CHEAP. I realize the word "elegant" (used in its description) is subjective, but I've seen faux leather wraps which are much more believable than this. The frame looks like it was wrapped in shiny plastic, and it feels like that as well. Poor quality-checking as well; the wrapping doesn't completely cover the panel ends, exposing a black fabric/material. The construction also seems cheap... to its credit, however, it seems very stable once assembled and does NOT creek or rattle.
An overhanging blanket fortunately hides most of these aesthetic deficiencies.... but that leaves me wondering why I purchased it to begin with. I could have purchased a basic (no headboard) frame for less and achieved a similar look for less. Well... it was one of those online risks which didn't work out. That's not overstock's fault; everyone takes a gamble when buying furniture online. The price point makes this a loss that I can "eat"----I'll keep it for a few months to a year, sell it off and internalize it as minimal loss.
-Does not "creek" or rattle when sitting, laying, or moving around
-Pairs well with a memory foam mattress
-**Lightweight which is easy to move/relocate
-The "faux" leather is wayyyy too plastic feeling and looking.
-Construction seems "cheap."
-Poor quality checking; the vinyl/plastic wrapping doesn't completely cover the panel ends, exposing black fabric/material (not too noticeable from afar, but still...)
-**Lightweight---your bed *WILL* slide on a wood or laminate flooring; you'll need to insert a rubber non-slip mat under each foot.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Identical
Please tell us about the quality of the product. poor to average
How accurate was the on site description of the product? I wouldn't have used the term "elegant." They should have disclosed the slat depth, so you could pair an appropriately sized mattress for the "low-profile" effect
The bed slats, which must be strong in order to hold up the bed and
its occupants, were so thin I could snap them with my bare hands. I thought they were balsa wood which makes a lousy bed slat.
I am such a fan of Overstock, but the quality of the beds has been poor, to put it lightly. This is the second bed I returned due to the quality. I am so surprised at Overstock for this, usually their products are terrific quality and great prices.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. very poor quality of materials
How accurate was the on site description of the product? did not explain the poor quality
Was a little weary when opening the boxes as the slats didn't appear to be very sturdy however once put together this bed wasn't too bad at all... great basic bed and looks good in our room. Well worth the price!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
How is the quality of the product? Quality wasn't super high but considering price was great value amd am very happy
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
This bed totally sucks. I will never buy anything from Overstock again. There were 4 screws missing that are essential. The box was labelled "Full" when it was a queen causing confusion. Nails sticking out of the upholstery. Holes to screw in screws were missing. Extremely inconvenient to return a product of this size. Absolutely horrible experience.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It sucked. I need to get a drill now to make screw holes where there should have been and 3 nails are sticking out of the upholstery.
This bed was a steal. I got mine for $$$ including shipping, and it was worth every penny. The material is fairly strong and it had all of the parts that it was supposed to have. During shipping, some of the Styrofoam stuck to the side of one of the panels, but this was easily removed by wiping with a damp towel and then a dry one. The bed is very sturdy when put together and looks beautiful once you get the sheets, blankets, and pillows arranged on the bed. For the price, it is an amazing quality bed. I'm a bigger gal, and I was jumping around on it after I put it together to see how sturdy it was. It's pretty solid even for me.
Assembly was easy and only took me about 1.5 hours. I put it together alone. The frame is pretty lightweight, so the average person shouldn't have any issues maneuvering it. The only discrepancy I found between the description and the actual product is that the middle support legs were two instead of the stated three. In my opinion, two legs is sufficient to support the bed though.
Overall, this was a good buy. If you're in the market for an inexpensive platform style bed, this will fit the bill.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Same
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great for the price.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Mostly accurate.
I am such a sucker. I always fall for this cheap junk. My new bed looks nice enough, but SERIOUSLY, the bendy wood slats are RIDICULOUS and Overstock should be ashamed of hoodwinking people with this thing. Instructions are one third-generation photocopy that is barely legible, material is cheap, but really, the big problem here is these particle board cross-slats which will snap if you ever sit up on your bed. Amazing. Twin size does not have a middle support as product details say it does. Instead you just wait for the slats to break and your back to break with it. Great job. Hope the mattress I'm getting in the mail tomorrow (also from Overstock) is less of a joke than the frame.
My husband followed the instructions to build the Metro Brown Faux Leather Bed and after he finished we were happy with the results, because it does not make any noices and it was easy to follow step by step till the end . The qualitty looks very good as well of stability. We really recomended.
I understand this is an inexpensive bed. I ordered the twin and the frame was much larger than the mattress, by about 6 inches in length and width. The base of the bed, the space was so great I could stick my leg in it. The feet of the bed are plastic cups which attach to only one side of the frame and the slats are held in place by plastic tips which two broke in the process of installing.
I bought this for my 3 year old son and saw immediate safety issues, so I am returning it, but in disassembling, the plastic tips for the slates broke terribly. 6 are completely ruined. Hence me calling this the "Dollar Tree Bed."
Size is wrong, quality is shameful. Not sure why this product is being sold.
WARNING - DO NOT CONSIDER BUYING THIS BED FRAME . . . the outer bed frame appears to be substantial, but the wood slats are so FRAIGLE, that within 24 hours of putting the bed together, my brother came over, sat down on the bed and cracked three slats . . . rather than throw the whole thing in the trash (I consider it), I paid a neighbor to purchase two full sheets of 3/4 inch plywood and cut to fit . . . cost me more than $60 out-of-pocket to make the bed useable . . . it's not like AMAZON or the company that made this bedframe is ever going to reimburse me . . . last item I will ever purchase from AMAZON . . . BUYER BEWARE ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
I imagine you could use a box spring if you wanted to but I don't think it's necessary. There are plenty of slats underneath. We used this frame with a very thick (and very dense - yet VERY COMFORTABLE) memory foam mattress picked up from our local walmart store - whatever happened to be on special at the time we were there).laylasee on Oct 9, 2013

This bed is SUPER EASY to assemble! Put on the 4 feet. Then put the headboard against the wall where you want it. Attach each side and then the footboard. (I think the head and foot are the same) stand inside the frame. Attach the rails mving from top to bottom, use a rubber mallet if neccesary.patholm1972 on Apr 2, 2013
So if I were to buy this, and buy only the top mattress of a memory foam bed would it correctly support the memory foam without ruining it?!?michaelenright1 on Dec 20, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The memory foam would be fine... but without a box spring(Yes, the description says you wont need a box spring. And you wont...for a few months) the slats will wear out and flatten out and the mattress will sink someautchicab on Jan 5, 2013

Once assembled and used, if I want to move to different home, can this be disassembled, transported and assembled again?
Few beds don't allow this, so let me know if this is possible without any hiccups or loss in stability. Thank you..e006 on Nov 5, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
