Do you need a box spring with this bed? Thanks
The directions were kind of vague but the bed was relatively easy to assemble. We have been using the bed for two months now and we love it. The only issue we have has to do with our mattress being four or five inches smaller than the opening so it looks a little goofy....

When I first got this 3 years ago, I loved it. The price was good, lower than the price listed now. It wasn't too difficult to assemble by one person, the bent wood slats had trouble staying in place until I can get the frame together. We now had this frame for 3 years- 4 pieces of the bent wood slats cracked and the frame on the side cracked as well. The crack on the side has not break through the faux leather covering, so we are still using it. Looking for a replacement soon, I would definitely spend a little more to get something that will last longer than 3 years.Read More

Other than the terrible stench and lack of directions, this is a good value. The only thing I don't like, is how low the bed really is. It's lower than I thought. There is a slight gap around the edges, but it's very, very slight. Once you throw a blanket on it or tuck the blanket around the mattress, it's unnoticeable.Read More
this bed is junk ... cheap is not always good ..if you are looking for a good bed frame do not buy this !!!!!!!!!! junk junkRead More
I didn't have an electric drill with fittings to put this together. I used the little tools that came with the bed. It took 2 hours to put this together, BUT, I would do it again because I love everything about it.Read More
It took my husband about an hour with 2 toddlers (helping) to put together. The pleather had an odor which dissipated within 2 weeks. It is perfect for our smaller room and went very well with our existing furniture. Putting the slats together was a little time consuming, but I feel nothing with our platform mattress. It is exactly what it looks like, and please remember what you are paying for it. One of the feet on the right side by the headboard, after being fully screwed on, was a tad crooked. The railing on the left side board was already coming off the side pannel, but it was so close to the footboard and it was only one screw that was stripped, we just bypassed it all together. All in all, the bed is exactly what we expected and wanted.Read More
You get what you pay for. It's a cheap frame but the platform style works well with our bedroom motif. The slats have a hard time staying on and take a lot of work to make them stay connected, but once the bed it on them, they stay put just fine. It took my husband less than an hour to put together and he only had to use a screwdriver. It didn't show up with all the required pieces and he had to improve a little, we didn't call customer service or anything, but it's fine now and looks good. But, overall, you get what you pay for!Read More
This is a great looking bed! It has curved wooden slats that fit into a metal frame as the base. The bed arrived in 2 boxes. It took about 2 hours for us to set up since there were no instructions and we started setting it up incorrectly. I would highly recommend this bed to others looking for a cheap but great looking platform bed.Read More
I saw some negative reviews of this bed, but I went ahead and purchased it anyway for financial reasons and because I really wanted a modern platform bed. It did take my husband a couple hours to put it togther, but it is a solid bed. Our king size mattess is a little too small for the frame, but with a blanket on the bed, you will hardly notice it. Seems sturdy.Read More
I tried to set my expectations low given the price. I wanted to try a platform bed. Like the other reviewer commented, the product has quite a strong odor! And, part of the packing was stuck to the faux leather. I got most of it off, but there is still some left on mine (it's on the part of the bed that is against the wall so I'm less concerned about it). The bed assembled real easily, but the instructions were badly printed. I put my old mattress on it, and it's already more comfortable than with the old box spring. I ordered a futon mattress too, I'm looking forward to trying that out. I'm very happy with this bed. I would have given it 5 stars if it were not for the odor!Read More
