I went with the Murray platform because of its great price and simple design. After looking at zillions of bed frames -- 4 posters, sleigh beds, canopies -- I decided to go with the cleanest, simplest lines. In my smallish bedroom, this is a great fit. It's sturdy and very attractive -- I got mahogany, a cherry like reddish brown. It took my beloved about half an hour to put together with just the allen wrench that is supplied. He's a builder, but the assembly seemed very straight forward. I am happy with the results, and would highly recommend. Unbeatable price and solid construction. Oh and by the way, the slats come tied together into a mat that you put down as a unit. LOTS of slats for really good support. I'm using a foam mattress also from Overstock. The 11-inch memory foam. Great combo.
I wanted to simplify my life by getting a platform bed that did not require a box spring nor a bedskirt to cover it. The Murray Platform Bed is ideal, and I'm so pleased with it. First of all, it arrived within 7 days of my order. It was packaged carefully and arrived in perfect condition. I selected this particular bed because a previous reviewer indicated that the slats were all attached with webbing and simply needed to be "unrolled" and screwed into the frame. This made assembly much easier. The bed is solid wood -not a veneer or laminate or MDF. It has a sturdy wooden center support running down the center. I was impressed with the fact that the four legs on the center support come with adjustable height buttons on the bottom. Assembly took about 45 minutes by myself. Everything fit together beautifully. This bed is perfect for me. However, if you do not intend to use a box spring with it (as I am doing) the bed will be much lower than usual. I highly recommend this bed. Simple and sturdy beauty at it's best!

This is my first platform bed that I've purchased. I bought it for our guest room. I absolutely love it. It was easy to put together. No problem with any missing pieces or damaged product. I found one similar from another site and the cost for shipping was more than the cost of the bed. Thanks Overstock for giving us free shipping or $2.95 shipping. Other sites should get with the program on shipping charges. Overall awesome bed. We also purchased the Serta memory foam mattress from Overstock. Wonderful comfortable mattress. My daughter now wants to sleep in the guest room all the time. Also I had the bed within 4 days of purchase - that's crazy fast!
Okay, I'm a bit older, but I got this bed because I was really sick of the older type with headboards, etc. I put it together alone without any problems. Although I was a little worried about the lack of height, I find I have no problems at all getting in and out of it. In fact, it's much easier than the old bed I had that was really too high for me. Also, it's lightweight, so when I clean, it's a breeze to move and I can reassemble the room in a snap if I decide to change it around. What's not to like? I got the black and it's beautiful and modern and looks really sharp with my white walls and the black chest of drawers in the room.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
How is the quality of the product? Excellent

We bought this bed for our 10 year old daughter to keep until she leaves for college. I have no doubts this little bed will last the next 8 years. It's cute, solid, and perfect for her style now and as she matures.
This bed is low to the ground. There is less than 6 inches from the bottom of the bed to our hardwood floor, so no room for storage.
Great price for a cute bed. Delivery was a breeze (and quick) and my daughter and I put it together ourselves. No complaints at all.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? black, perfect
Please tell us about the quality of the product. nice quality
On a quest to downsize my furniture and the hassle of moving, I bought this bed to replace a bulkier frame. The bed is great, it truly fits a full size mattress and is quite sturdy. If you put the mattress on and you feel the bed is too large, remember that you have to tuck in the blankets! Once I actually made the bed, it fits snug as a bug. It's got simple and clean lines that are quite nice. They tell you that the bed requires two people to assemble. I did it myself, and while I think doing it with two people would have been exponentially simpler, you can do it yourself if you're creative.
The docked star is for the shipping and handling process. The bed frame has a few chips and scratches here and there. Nothing too big and nothing too visible, but enough to go "oh, mannnn!" when you see it. One of the boxes had a great big tear in it. And that's only when it finally gets to you. This bed took so long to get here, I think I could have driven to Chicago to get it myself in the same amount of time. Really plan on the full 10 business days of that 5-10 business day gap.
Overall, I'd recommend this to a friend, but with a few caveats. I still think this is one of the best deals out there for a clean simple minimalist bed frame. But you have to sort of order and forget about it for a week.
I was looking for a minimalistic, sturdy platform bed to fit in my small apartment. This bed fit all my criteria, and my price point. I'm using it with a 11 inch mattress without a box spring and the height is just right. There are a ton of slats, so I am not at all worried about my new mattress getting damaged. My dad and I assembled it in about an hour. I think this bed is a great buy!
Arrived earlier than anticipated. Two boxes, easily manageable by one person. Put together in about 30 minutes ... no cursing involved! :) I can't speak for long-term quality, but so far so good. I purchased an 8" Icon memory foam mattress, too ... it doesn't come up too huh off the base, and actually fits tight in the frame, but it's still an excellent value - both pieces - ****. The only minor annoyance, not with Overstock, but UPS delivered to the wrong address. (Two doors down, although they walked right past the number on the house, which is clearly not the one on the shipping label.) Of course it was raining, but I knew the bed was delivered thanks to their email service, so I saw the boxes on the neighbors front porch. No real harm, but annoying ... it was raining. Will update after I've used the bed a bit ...

How is the assembly and disassembly, in case of moving I dont want it to be impossible to disassemble.furqanrauf on Jun 15, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
It's not too bad, but the slats are held in with wood screws and you may find that the holes you make the first time are actually too big to securely fit the slats the second time you assemble.mashamashamasha on Jun 18, 2014
Does this bed require base? I am confused because some people suggest box spring and some people said its a platform bed, it requires no box spring.furqanrauf on Jun 15, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
It doesn't require a box spring, although you *could* put one on if you choose to. The bed has slats which support the mattress. I also think they're quite high quality slats.mashamashamasha on Jun 18, 2014
is it a flat platform or does the bed sink in a bit? why aren't there photos without the mattress?elizacat on May 2, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you elizacat for your interest in the Murray Full-size Platform Bed. This is a platform bed and the reason we take pictures with a mattress on the bed is to show the customers what it would look like put completely together. Thank you for shopping with us!

The bed doesn't sink in. It is a flat platform made from a series of slats woven together. It's a sturdy, firm bed.maryinoakland on Jun 4, 2013
The slats make this a very sturdy bed for the mattress. No sinking at all!klmcincy2 on Apr 24, 2014
Thank you for your question. Other customers have said that there is less than six inches between the bottom of the bed and the floor. I hope this helps you. Have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 4, 2013
It is about 6 inches. You cannot fit a vacuum under it. It is a platform bed and is not made to be high off the floor.georgigirl530 on Apr 16, 2013
