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!
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.
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.
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).
For those of you who have this bed, how strong is the quatrafoil backboard? Wondering if it's strong enough to pile pillows against and read in bed without bending.rebeccao04 on Jul 10, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello rebeccao04, according to our support team, the back is welded to the legs and is strong enough to lean against while sitting up. As always, we invite other customers to share their experience. Thank you for checking with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 14, 2014
We also have an adjustable bed. When you say the "side rails" are part of the structure of the bed, do you also mean the rails across the bottom. Our adjustable would appear to fit inside, but at least one of the bottom rails would have to be removed.petervt on Apr 1, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us petervt. I believe the correct term is cross supports which are 3 in number. They support the box spring and support the beds integrity. Any modification of the assembly would void the warranty. I hope this helps. overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 3, 2014
How many inches does the bed sit off the ground? I am trying to gauge under-bed storage. Also, would it be okay to use bed raisers? I assume it would need seven of them.brittney349 on Feb 26, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us brittney349. The bed sits approximately 6.75 inches off the ground. Any modification of a product is at the owner discretion and would void the warranty. Have a good day.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 28, 2014
Can this bed frame be used with a mechanical base bed? In other words, are the bed rails removable and can my mechanical base sit inside the frame.mkd112 on Feb 7, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us mkd112. We do not recommend modifying the bed. The side rails are part of the structure of the bed. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 10, 2014
is there a box spring shown in the picture and what is the height of the box spring?zitash on Jan 24, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us zitash. This does use a box spring. The space between the side rail and the bottom of the head board is approximately 19.5 inches. The box spring would be between 8-9 inches based on a Google search of the average full size box spring. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 27, 2014

Thank you for shopping with us zitash. It will leave the warehouse in 1-2 business days and as soon as it does you will get tracking information from the carrier. You would receive it in 5-10 business days from purchase. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 23, 2014
Would this bed be OK for use with a regular box spring or would a low profile be best to show the most of the patterned headboard? Do you have the measurements from the bottom of the headboard to the top of the frame?lulume on Jan 19, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I use it with a regular box spring and it's fine. That headboard is HUGE. It's taller than you think it is. It'd be hard to cover it up.melissagbl on Jan 23, 2014
Either would work, I think. We tried at first to use it without a box spring but with just plywood support but it was so low it looked strange. We then got box springs and while it is much higher, the other poster is right - it doesn't cover up the headboard. But we did have to get doggie stairs!lonestarmary616 on Jan 30, 2014
Thank you for shopping with us malfann17. The bed was made in Chile. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 6, 2014
The Overstock answer to the question below in regards to what size mattress fits this bed says it is for a California King. Can you please verify this, as I just ordered this bed for a standard king as it is advertised as such, standard king, and the listed measurements for this bed suggest it is made for a standard king as well - and not a Cali King which is extra long in length. Thank you kindly!littledesertlady on Nov 24, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us littledesertlady. The mattress that is used for the bed is a king. I am sorry for any confusion. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 26, 2013
Thank you for shopping with us giveypup. We do not offer that service for this bed, I apologize. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 12, 2013
So confusing, does this king bed take a California King (72 x 84") or King (76 x 80") mattress and box spring. Also, do you offer a USAA insurance company discount? USAA says you do, yet your phone ordering person didn't know about it. Thank you.giveypup on Aug 24, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us giveypup. The bed uses a king mattress. Have a great day and I apologize for the wrong information originally that you received.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 26, 2013
