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.
This bedframe is almost exactly what I expected, and almost exactly what I wanted. My only disappointment is that I wish the metal was more of a matte finish than it is. That being said, I can totally live with it. They recommend two people to put it together, and so do I, BUT one 5'2" woman CAN do it alone if she has to. Also, I would recommend having a rubber mallet on hand, as not all of the "pegs" and "slots" line up perfectly, so you may very well need to hammer them into alignment. (A regular hammer will damage the finish.) On the whole, I am very pleased.
Love this bed!! I put it together by myself in about 2 1/2 hours, although I wouldn't recommend doing it alone!! It's a gorgeous frame. It adds so much personality to my bedroom. All of the pieces were intact, well labeled, and the instructions were easy to follow. You can't go wrong with it!
This bed is beautiful and was fairly easy to assemble with two people. My experience is that all unassembled metal furniture takes a bit of pounding and tweaking, but this wasn't bad. It's a sturdy king size frame and so worth the great deal we got it for. It looks as elegant in real life as the picture suggests.
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!
