The bed arrived in only a couple of days which was a surprise. In the picture on the website the product looked a bit grey but is actually antique. When I saw the product was made in China I had my doubts about the assembly as past experience has shown me that attachment points don't line up to well. That was not the case with this product, everything lined up spot on and assembly was a breeze. I first took some time to familarize myself with the parts and assembly instructions by revieweing the instructions with the parts in front of me. After a couple of reviews I began the assembly and everything went together with very little guess work. I completed the frame assembly, including inserting the plastic locks, and than mounted the headboard and foot board to it. On the head/footboard, don't crank the screws down to tight at first. If you leave them a little lloose and than go back and tighten them once they are all in place everything lines up without any struggle.
I had never ordered furniture on-line before was really nervous about it. My only complaint was it was advertised as shipping LTL taking a few weeks to get. We were in the middle of construction of our bedroom so that was perfect. I took the plunge and ordered it we got it in 3 boxes via UPS in 2 Days! I was concerned about the color as hard to tell on the website. My color pallets was greys and blues so was not sure how it would look. Well against the color pallet it looks sort of brushed nickel (perfect!) It really is different which I like not the same old style I see over and over. My boyfriend and I are very happy with it.

This is a very nice tubular metal bed. The curves are graceful and consistent. The finish is a glaze of some sort that seems as though it will hold up well to years of use. Although the headboard and foot board are lightweight and made from a "medium" gauge tubular steel, overall the construction is sturdy and the bed seems as though it is a product that will hold up to years of use.
Assembly was very easy and, to my eye, the assembled bed sitting in my bedroom looks much better than the picture(s) on the web site.
If you are looking for something similar to an older, heavier iron bed, this isn't it. If not, I can, without hesitation, highly recommend it.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very close. No surprises.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not absolute top of the line. But very much in line with the price.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate.
I saved for a year for my new bed and mattress and it was well the wait! Beautiful bed, and very solid and sturdy. The directions made sense and I put it together by myself in about 1.5 hours. One thing- use a "real" wrench rather than the one they send to screw n the hex nuts. You'll need one hand holding bolt straight with your allen wrench, and the other screwing the hex nut with Herculean strength- but it can be done!
