There were two problems: 1. The back of the headboard is not covered in the faux leather - instead it's some felt material. Not a problem if you have the headboard against the wall, but looks ugly if bed is sideways against the wall. 2. The middle support was missing a piece. I had to improvise and use two screws to put it together - hopefully it holds...
I am very happy that I decided on this platform bed. The leather wrapped perimeter gives a sophisticated appearance. There is padding beneath the leather which is nice when leaning against the headboard. I have a 14" memory foam mattress on this bed and they go together beautifully. I had an issue with the 4 legs, but I worked with O customer service and received replacement legs for my bed.
I love this product. I was skeptical since this was my very first purchase on this site. The platform bed came in 2 boxes. Very easy to built. Instructions were not complicated and it took me about 35 minutes to set it up by myself. The color is very rich and coffee deep brown. Yes its faux leather but its pretty awesome. For my budget, it makes my room look very nice. Shipping was fast and it arrived very quickly. I love it and i recommend it for anyone who's looking to buy this.
Shipment arrived with missing pieces, which required a phone call and a few more days to get everything we originally ordered. The faux leather vinyl is thin and easily scratches and tears. While loading the box spring into the frame, the side panel vinyl tore when the bottom of the frame was laid on it. Absolutely not a recommended item.
For a relatively inexpensive bed frame, this one suits me nicely. The slats a bit bendy, but there are a lot of them. I was able to assemble the bed in about 25 minutes, and it is relatively sturdy and does not squeak, although I wouldn't put my full body weight on the headboard for fear that the joints at the bottom might snap off. The faux leather looks good from a distance and should hold up to years of normal use.
Arrived in 3 large boxes, UPS was kind enough to leave it in the foyer, nothing was too heavy was able to get into the house by myself. Bed was easy to assemble. Material is slightly flimsy, wood parts are light pine, may not hold up with time but for the price it is acceptable.
