Perfect for those with small living spaces and a minimalistic decor, this compact queen-size platform bed was designed for use without a bulky headboard. Available in black or mahogany, this bed gives a contemporary feel to any bedroom. ...more
This bed is solid, a good value and well designed. I put it together by myself in about an hour with only a phillips head screw driver. The slats system is made from good wood and is well designed. The exterior boards look good and are good quality wood. The instructions are just fine. One of the drawings has one of the washers mislabeled but that was easy to figure out. Also the diagram shows that the places where the wood screws go into the side frame have pre-drilled holes to go into - they are in fact not pre-drilled but the wood screws are self-starting and really don't need to have pre-drilled holes. These are just minor discrepancies in the instructions. The bed looks just like the photos when assembled. It does not look inexpensive. One thing to note - the mattress sits on slats that are 6 inches from the floor. Do not be confused to thinking the mattress will sit 11 inches off the floor. The slats are inside the bed frame and therefore the mattress sits 6 inches off the floor. The top of the bed frame is at 11 inches.
Iíve had this platform bed for a few weeks now. It took 7-10 days to arrive in one delivery of two boxes.
The biggest challenge is assembling the bed. The instructions say you need 2 people to assemble the bed. I agree. Unfortunately, it was just me. I consider myself good at putting things together and using tools, and it took me 1.75 hours to assemble the bed.
There were a couple of reasons for why it was challenging to put the bed together. First, the instructions arenít super clear. If you donít pay attention to the details, you can make a mistake. Thatís what happened to me, and I think it added 30 minutes to my time.
The second problem is that the boards are heavy. If you plan to assemble the bed on your own, make sure you are strong enough to hold the planks together while putting in the screws. I ended up using a stack of books to prop up the planks, but it wasnít easy.
The bed is made of some kind of wooden composite. Itís neither plywood nor pure wood (as far as I can tell), but it seems fairly solid.
After sleeping on the bed for a few weeks, the bed has been stable. I think it probably will hold up for a long time. [NOTE: Iím a relatively still sleeper and I havenít been ďaggressively moving Ē on the bed. For more ďactiveĒ bed users, you might end up with a different opinion of the bedís stability.]
The bed doesnít have much space underneath it. Storing items or trying to vacuum underneath the bed might be difficult.
The design of the bed is basic and minimalist. Itís simply a rectangle with 4 legs. If youíre looking for something to accent your bedroom, this isnít the bed for you.
Overall, I think you are getting what you pay for in this bed. Nothing more, nothing less.
This bed came well packaged and with clear directions. The bed was purchased for our 15 year old son who picked it out,and he loves it!!! We read the reviews and remembered the advice of a fellow overstock customer who mentioned not to unbind the support slats (they come tied together.) GREAT ADVICE. This bed was assembled in less than 45minutes by mother and son;o) The style is very simple and very clean...perfect for a minimalist.
I found this bed frame simple to assemble using the hex key provided and a power screwdriver. I'm an average 40ish woman and did it mostly myself -- my 8-yr-old helped hold up the rails for final assembly. I've been sleeping on it for 2wks and find it solid with no creaks (I hate creaks!!). The bed is very low--can't fit any of those under-bed storage containers beneath it. I am using it with a standard innerspring mattress only. It is just exactly what I wanted, and so much cheaper than similar products from other shops.
Looks amazing. Very very sturdy, and our guests love it. Just as a note, it is very low down on the ground. Before my elderly parents came into town, I purchases a box springs for the mattress to raise the height. Now it's gorgeous and easier to get in and out of.
I ordered on Sunday and it was here by Tuesday,amazing! It took me and my husband less than an hour to put together. We love it,it is low with just the mattress but it's very comfortable. It comes with four legs for the middle support and is solid as a rock. The slat supports are half inch thick plywood like wood but they are solid! We ordered the black and it is spot on black. I was leery of ordering online furniture but this bed is worth it to us. Now when he rolls over in bed I don't even feel the mattress move like our old metal frame bed. Like I said...this bed is SOLID. I rate it at excellent!!!

I admit that I let a family member put the bed together for me and he some experience with this. He was done in 40 minutes putting it together. Unfortunately Overstock made me wait TWO weeks for a the second box to show up, because there was a failure with delivery of the second box, essential to putting the whole thing together.
My advice to Overstock and you: Make sure you know and that it is indicated that there are TWO boxes that are the bed.
