The bed arrived about a week after order. The large box was rather beat up, and HEAVY!! but I was able to move it myself, (33 yr old man) Set up was easy, instructions where easy. only thing I noted was the extentions for the headboard (legs) where actually in the Footboard bag so I had to remove the plastic feet I installed once I realized this. Otherwise everything was super easy. It took me about 30 minutes to put together. The bed frame rails are very close to the floor, about 4" off the floor. ITs super high quality, much better than you would expect from the price. I have a 10" box spring, and an 8" memory foam matress I bought from overstock as well.. I am not happy with my choice, the listing said anthing from 14" -26" for thickness would work, and I DISAGREE! You need a minimum of 20" matress/and box spring, I have 18" and there is still a 2" gap between the matress and the headboard, so pillows can slip through. I would suggest 20" to 24" would be a MUCH better choice!!!! I would have gotten a 11" If I had known this. The Frame is about 4" longer than a standard bed, so if you happen to have feet that hang past your matress, you will be ok, it also allows for blankets and so forth to easily drop down. As mentioned its is more of a bronze/brownish color, than actual black.. I put it agains a dark brown wall and it does look more black than brown, but I would not say it IS black. I am 100% satisfied with this bed for my guest room on a budget!
Been looking for a black bed frame with a unique look. Found this frame. Went to order it. Was out of stock. It came back into stock about a week later. Ok no problem I could wait. Ordered it, and it was $$ more when it came back Into stock. It came in 2 different packages in 2 different days. Opened it up and the color is esspresso brown, like some other reviews said. I love the frame it is very strong but the description is false. So if your looking for a brown bed frame this is it. I contacted the company ASAP and all they wanted to do was have me return the unit. I told them it was false advertisement, but still wanted the frame. They reimbursed me some money for the inconvenience, and hopefully they'll change the color description.
I bought the bed for my son. It is gorgeous and nice quality. ! It arrived on on the targeted day they stated it would. The instructions were very easy to follow, but due to the weight of the bed, I did need a hand while bolting it together. I would have given it 5 stars except i didn't come with all of the bolts and spring washers required to put it together. I noticed this same issue in several other review that have ordered this bed. It's not that big of a deal but it is aggravating.
I researched this exact bed everywhere and Overstock was the place I found it for the cheapest price. The bed is made of an incredibly solid mattress frame, headboard and foot board. I am over 270 ibs. and the bed doesn't creek or make any rattling sounds. Bed is EXPRESSO colored NOT BLACK, but it actually suits my decor better that way. I could not be happier with the strength of this bead. The obvious here is how attractive the bed looks once assembled (get a buddy to help). It took me 2 hours to build alone. Buy this item with your eyes closed you will not regret it. NOTE: get standard box spring rather than the low profile box springs and make sure your mattress is over 11 inches so that your pillows don't slide out between the mattress and the headboard. One of the earlier reviews mentioned it and lucky I paid attention because that would drive me crazy. Love it, love it, love it...
This isn't the easiest bed in the world to put together, and the clearance under the bed isn't enough to use any under-bed storage. It's also incredibly gorgeous and sturdy. I do love my bed. It requires 2 people to put together, however.
Honestly based on other reviews we were expecting a good quality bed frame but I must said that this bedframe exceeded our expectations!! It's modern and very sturdy; and it looks gorgeous in our guest room. Great selection on our home decorating adventure--one room down, two to go... :)
we received our bed within a week of ordering, which i thought was pretty quick. It took about 30 minutes for my boyfriend and i to put it together. As with other reviews i do agree that it is black and not a deep brown. My biggest complaint is that the support legs under the bed gave out after 1 night of extra curricular activities. So we took the legs out and used a 2 X 4 and some wider wooden legs to help support the bed. Other than that we are happy with it, especially for the price.
Arrived sooner than expected in two boxes in pristine condition. Hubby put it together in under an hour using all included pieces! I really like the extra support (four small posts in the center of the frame). Heavy frame (fantastic) so no squeaking and riding the waves while sleeping. The color leans more to a dark bronzy-brown which works in my scheme. Would recommend. Thought of ordering a duplicate for the other bedroom, but will order another from this manufacturer Very happy.
This item came missing parts and it was horrible to return/repackage but overstock customer service was great with setting up pick up from UPS they really have great service. This bed is ridiculously heavy iron so if it's not your thing don't get it, I can't imagine stubbing my toe on that thing
We couldn't get over how easily this bed went together in less than an hour! I purchased two beds at the same time and they both had every nut and bolt, every tool intact and no damage whatsoever. The plaid look to the bed is as masculine as I was hoping it would be as a gift to my son. It is very sturdy, doesn't sway or make any metallic clanging sounds, and holds the box spring and mattress to just the right height. As others have said, the metal is more of a dark brown/black, but that gives the owner a larger color palette to work with in decorating their bedroom. My son is really pleased with it and so am I! Couldn't find anything classier at such a reasonable price!
