The bed is a nice piece. Ours required support on the bottom of the frame for our thick mattress. esp. if you do not plan on using a box spring. I used 84' curtains on the bed,and it looks great. If you use a box spring the bed will be high and cover some of the backboard. to get the look in the photo, either thin mattress and box or thick mattress - bunky board or use plywood (that is what we did)

Absolutely love this bed! It's very stylish. It took my husband an afternoon to put together. My only complaint is the pieces were labeled incorrectly. Luckily my husband is excellent with that kind of stuff (probably from all those years of playing with Lego blocks). It ended up not causing too many issues. The mislabeling is the only reason I gave this bed 4 stars. It is very sturdy which was something I was very concerned about. LOVE IT! Would definitely buy it again.
This bed was a complete pain to put together, it took three of us almost 3 hours to get it together. Main reason for the ridiculous amount of time was that the holes and the screws did not always line up. Needed to use a hammer and other tools to bend some pieces to make them fit. Directions are poorly written and very hard to follow. However, now that it is put together I love the look!
Everything about this purchase was positive except for one thing. It had a bent rail (as other reviewers had noted). I banged it straight with a hammer, so the bed fit together, but the hammer marred the paint finish, so I'll have to fix that. Otherwise, it looks fantastic! Seems solid and shipped really fast.
Shipping was easy and was relatively easy to put together. You definitely need two people so one person can hold while the other places the screws. Very stable. Needed a box spring as there aren't any slates on the bottom. Really love the bed.
Get ready to spend hours assembling only to find the headboard does not line up right. It's so big and heave I decided to just break off the defective piece rather than return the bed. So there's a broken link on headboard that's not really visible but takes away from resale. Other than that, the bed is really fun, quirky, and attractive. Pretty sturdy too. I'm happy with it but factory needs to check items better for defects before shipping. Not cool!
We've had this bed for about two months now, and we really like it. Assembly was fairly easy, and it is a great look that has added a nice touch to our master bedroom. I would give it 5 stars if it was a bit more sturdy... but for the price, it is a great bed. Just don't purchase it expecting heavy wrought iron. And don't let kids climb on it. It's more decorative than anything, which is what we wanted. It does a fine job of holding our king tempurpedic mattress. And it looks awesome!
this bed is great, however my original thought was to go low profile without using a box spring. We had purchased a memory foam bed prior to receiving the bed frame. It looked great when I had put it together but the design of the head board when trying to sleep we kept loosing our pillows through the space. After purchasing the box spring we get lots of compliments and enjoy the look and sturdy quality of our new bed. Thanks O
I love this bed. It has a great design and makes for a lovely decorative piece in the room. It is not too feminine, just right, and is surprisingly sturdy. Relatively easy to assemble. Frame is low to the ground, so you can't store suitcases under it, fyi.
I love it! We read the reviews and noted the hints from other people who purchased the bed and built it and we had no trouble. And it is some kind of good looking! I put very soft - very light pink curtains on the front corners and back corners and bought a turquoise sheet set from overstock. Then added turquoise bedside lamps and a quilt from overstock that is white with pink coral embodied on it and it's perfect. I've gotten tons of compliments! I wish I could put a picture of it all on this review because it's that perfect!
For the price you get an excellent product... But however like a few others have said the assembly isn't completely smooth and expect to have a few things bent here and there and holes not lining up. Otherwise looks great and feels sturdy enough.
Bed came quickly and packages were in great condition when delivered. All pieces were labeled correctly and directions were clearly written and easy to follow. My husband and I put it together in about 40 minutes. It looks absolutely beautiful. And I have had so many compliments on it. Don't hesitate to buy this beautiful bed.
I absolutely LOVE this bed. I live in a modern loft with very high ceilings and this bed "fills up" the room perfectly without feeling "heavy" or bulky (like a sleigh bed or other wooden canopy beds). Assembly was very easy (and I've been assembling furniture non-stop for the last 2 weeks). Directions were easy to follow and very basic - no complicated parts, pieces, etc... My dad & I assembled it one hour together. TIP: I do recommend two people working together, assembling both sides of the bed at the same time (I had an extra allen wrench from other furniture). Also, when you're tightening 3-4 screws down the side of a pole, tighten ALL screws about halfway first (to make sure they are all in the hole) and then go back and tighten 100%. ONLY NEGATIVE / CONCERN: When the bed arrived, the headboard comes in two pieces (split in the middle horizontally) that fit together by fitting the top piece onto the bottom piece. The top has hollow "tubes" that slide onto the bottom part's short metal rods. This is the very first step and all further assembly stems from here...One of the hollow tubes was bent slightly - which meant the entire thing wouldn't align properly. LUCKILY, I had a furniture delivery/repair man at my home and he kindly straightened it out using a very heavy duty allen wrench (stuck it in the hole & slowly bent it back into shape.). Otherwise, I would've had to request a new piece and/or send it back (which can be a pain with Overstock).
This bed is really amazing, it's so beautiful and I get compliments on it all the time. For this price, it's really an amazing deal. It was pretty easy to build, our only problem was that one of the screws didn't match up, so it took some time to finagle it in. Which would be the only bad thing I would have to say about this bed. Also, we did have to buy a box spring, but we enjoy being a little higher up. If you don't buy a box spring, (as the other reviews stated) you will need to get something for extra support for your mattress since there are only three beams on the bed. All in all, this bed is beautiful and really makes a statement in the bedroom.
