We upgraded from a Queen to a King Bed and had all maple furnishings in the bedroom. I didn't want the expense of a wood bed and opted for this. I wasn't disappointed. The bed was very well made and easy to assemble (I did it with help from my 13 year old boys). It is gorgeous and very sturdy. Was very pleased as I am used to high end furnishings and I would highly recommend this bed to anyone. Beautiful.
I bought this frame because my sister has one and she likes it just as much as I do. It looks GREAT. The other reviews were very helpful, especially the ones dealing with the installation hints. No problems putting it together. For anyone with a king-size adjustable bed (i.e. two XL Twin mattresses with adjustable bases) the Stanley King-size fits perfectly around the adjustable bases. The Head Board and Foot Board attach to the included frame and stand alone, independently of the adjustable bed bases. It all fits so well. Love this frame and highly recommend it. It's dark brown and looks great with all my oil rubbed bronze door knobs and hinges.
