I am very satisfied with this bed except for one thing. I wish the headboard was at least ten inches higher. I have a thick mattress and a lot of the headboard's scroll work design is lost because the high mattress hides it. For someone who has a less thick mattress, though, the headboard would be just right. This bed sits fairly low to the floor. Because of this, most storage boxes and other ittems won't slide beneath it. This might be important for someone to know if they are accustomed to storing "things" under their bed. The bed's color is brown with a copperish glow. I'm very pleased with the bed's sturdiness. It doesn't wobble as some metal beds do!
This is a really nice bed. Perfect for my bedroom. At one point, I thought of replacing my mattress, but it wasn't until I assembled the bed with FIVE SLATS across that it uplifted my mattress. My old bed had only one slat in the middle, the mattress eventually started to lose shape, but when I replaced the bed frame, it was the bed frame that was no good. My mattress was like new all over again. Very happy with this bed, and it's strong and has enough space at the foot so you can put the end of your comforter, blanket and a bedspread when making up the bed. It's neat.
I bought this bed because I have never had a bed with a headboard and footboard before and it is so beautiful and reasonably priced too! I put it together all by myself as I am single and did not have the patience to wait for someone to help me. I did it in an hour and a half and the directions were good. Not too hard :) Of course, if you have someone to help you, it will go faster but good to know it can be done alone if needed. It is very sturdy and beautiful. I love the detail of the curved bars.

I absolutely love this bed. I bought one for my daughter this summer and I am very impressed. So much so that I am ordering one for my older daughter too!!! This bed is very easy to assemble, very pretty, and very sturdy. I love this bed!!!!!!!!!
I've had this bed for four years now (neglected to write a review), and I'm glad to say it is still standing and looks as good as it did the day it arrived. I assembled it myself and don't remember it being a particularly difficult. The only thing I would say is that if you have a box spring and mattress, you don't see as much as the headboard as is shown in the picture. The mattress is a few inches below the foot board, and you can see about a foot of the head board. This is not something that bothers me, but I thought people should know. The bed also came with risers, which I am using and it's nice to have the option. Plenty of storage space below!

Love my new bed. I love the design, it is very fun, but classy and elegant at the same time. Not too difficult at all to put together, easiest with a 2nd person though. I guess I misread the product description, or they added this tidbit later, but I mistakenly thought that the frame was such that it only needed a mattress and not a boxspring. Definitely need both the boxspring and mattress (both sold separately) to make this work. The description now clearly mentions need for a boxspring and a mattress, and so I will give it 5 stars since that has been added. Also, it is very sturdy, even with trying to bounce and shake the bed it makes no noise. Only other tidbit is that the frame is slightly long for a standard queen sized mattress and boxspring, so there is a decent few inch gap at the end between the mattress and the footboard. Once I put the comforter on though, it fills in most of it and looks quite nice. Would definitely recommend, for price and quality. Thanks again overstock!

All parts were in the box, the directions were clear and even though I put this together myself as a small woman, it was fine. I got a Tempurpedic-like mattress for the new bed and I am heaven with the comfort and the looks. One of the best products I've purchased from Overstock.com, and I've been a member for many years. Amazing value in light of the quality and the construction!

I am very pleased with this purchase. You can't beat the price and the bed is classy and sturdy. Yes, other reviews are accurate in that the bed is very close to the ground (which has upset my cats!), but that can be beneficial for those shorter in stature or elderly who require a bed that is easier to get into. It doesn't bother me any. Also, in regards to other reviews who stated the instructions were confusing, I disagree. I put this bed together by myself with no issues. In regards to other reviewers who were unhappy with the "cheap" tools you are given to assemble the bed, I'm not sure what to say to that. Did you expect a Craftsman or Snap-on toolbox to be included? Yes, the tools that are included are substandard and I don't intend to use them to repair my car, but they allowed me to assemble the bed with no issues. I am pleased with the timeless look of the bed as well as the price including shipping. I have also been consistently pleased with my purchases from Overstock to date.

Bed was easy to assemble. If you want more of the frame to show, you can use only a matress; the frame is so great. The frame has support at the bottom that will support any weight and sturdy. Does not require a lot of space; the room the bed is in is 11 x 13. Very pleased.

I was worried about the quality of this bed for the price but it is beautiful. Pretty lightweight but holds my queen pillow top perfectly. Note though I did purchase a new low profile queen mattress and it fits perfectly. A new mattress might be too high.
This bed is very solid! It was designed very well. It looks nicer in person feels like it is a bed made decades ago. no squeeks or movement. Im using my bed with a temperpedic foam mattress [12"] so plenty of headboard is exposed. Thin 1/4 in plywood should be used under foam mattress. definatly worth the money! Easy assembly!
This bed was eay to put together...but it is wider than a queen by about 3 inches and longer by about 4-6 inches...It came with cross bars so I didnt use a box spring just layed some wood on top of bars and then put on my mattress. It ends up being a good height....basically making it a platform bed. By doing this you get to see the headboard and footboard design. It seems very sturdy...I could return it if I had time to put the effort of getting new packaging. But, I will probably just replace it...
This bed is simply beautiful, which is why despite it's cheap, thin aluminum frame that broke within two months I decided to keep the bed rather than go through the laborious return process. A lot of buyers were thrilled with this bed but a lot us have run into issues. The frame is approximately 3 inches too wide for any queen bed so the box spring slides around on the frame and makes the use of a bedskirt impossible. Because of the error in size the head board and foot board will not work with a regular bed frame (that goes under the box spring) so you are forced to use the frame that comes with it. While the head and foot boards are made out of a beautiful hammered steel or iron, the support frame is made of a thin cheap aluminum that has four center support poles held together with one screw for each pole. The bed posts slide on hardwood very easily but the center poles do not. So as your bed is sliding across your floor as you get in and out of it the center poles are not sliding but are bending where they screw to the crossbars. This makes the cheap aluminum crossbars bow and my four thousand dollar mattress and box spring dip in the middle. I am a stubborn woman however, and decided that I was going to make my beautiful bed work. My solution was to first put L brackets on either side of the four center support poles and use the round hose clamps to hold them in place so the poles dont bend anymore. Then I put felt pads under the poles so they would slide if they needed to. Then I put nonslip pads under the bed posts so the bed would stop sliding around. The fit kit as I call it cost me about $16.36 total: $5.74 for the 8 L brackets, $5.89 for all 12 hose clamps, $3.73 for the non slip pads and $1 for the felt pads. As for the boxspring sliding around on the frame I haven't thought of a solution for that yet. Styrofoam blocks perhaps. I say all this to hopefully help another stubborn person that really wants this bed to work. But if you're on the fence between this bed and another I'd advise you to pick the other one. Good luck!
Easy to put together. Sturdy- we've had it for several months in our guest bedroom & it's been slept in quite a bit- so far it's held up just great. I would highly recommend this bed- especially for this price. On top of that- it's beautiful! No complaints here.
the reviews were really helpful and helped me make the decision to purchase this bed. i have been pleased with the quality for the price. I put the bed together alone in about an hour; it was easy. I am very pleased with the support bars under the mattress & platform (not included) - they have their own little supports. The feet slide very easily, so it is easy to put the bed into whatever space its going to live, but that means you will need to add an "after market" non-slip device (like pads that stick on the feet) so it won't slide around your hardwood floors (or you could use a rug...)

I'm very happy with this bed. It's very sturdy. We particularly like the four support bars - it's almost like I have a new mattress too! I would have liked a bit higher headboard, about 6 inches - but knew about that issue when I ordered it. The pillows block a good bit of it, but not all. This is perfect for our cabin master bedroom. It's like fancy-rustic. However, I can certainly see it in a fancier setting as well. I was glad I read all the comments before ordering as it is important to follow the directions in putting it together. You have to do everything in the right order! It took us not quite an hour and all the pieces and parts were there, along with the tools to use. We didn't have anything left over! I'm very pleased.
