If I had to do it again, I would not buy such a large piece. Although, with trundle beds, it's par for the course. This trundle bed has withstood kids climbing and jumping on it... walking on it, like the arms are a balance beam... lol.. and it still looks good and functions well. :) Listing reads 'Dark Brown', but it is close to black -- as shown in the image. The style was really cool for a couple of weeks. My mistake.
It's really a beautiful classy piece of furniture....my son, who's 16 years old put it together, I just handed him the screws. It very easy and quick to put together.... the only thing that concerns me is the wood slats, not sure of sturdiness...so may head to *** for a few more. But I am totally satisfied...
This looks terrific in my husband's office. It being an office we didn't want the traditional daybed look. This worked perfect with the dark brown faux leather, fits in beautifully. The quality was better than I thought it was going to be and it was assembled fairly easily. We did not put a mattress in the trundle but rather put extra pillows, blankets, etc. there for when we do need to use the guest bed.
I purchased this for a spare bedroom. Which the kids use as a tv room but also used when we have sleep overs and for quests. It looks beautiful. I put a ton of mix and match pillows on it so it doubles as a huge sofa. I put it together myself ( a smaller sized woman) and had no problems at all. The trundle bed slides out nicely every time it's used. Which I thought might be a problem on the rug. Overall this is a great value and looks very rich. Love it.
