I saw this bedframe and thought it looked perfect. Read reviews and it seemed like a perfect match. Got the package - well padded and everything was great. Easy to put together - Did it alone. All set. First few nights were fine. Then I sat on it one night and the plastic rods that support he slats bent/broke. After that, every single day I had to keep readjusting them and putting them back on. The quality of my sleep went down and I kept waking up with a stiff neck and a sore back. Now, the slats are worthless, the plastic pegs are worthless. The bed itself is gorgeous, but right now it's a space hog in my bedroom area with my mattress next to it. Buy this platform bed if you want to sleep on the floor. It's a piece of crap that is paraded as a platform bed. I never give 1 stars to items. I was thinking 2 stars b/c it IS gorgeous, but I just wasted 350 bucks for 2 weeks of decent sleep and 2 weeks of poor sleep. The bed is not stable. Perhaps it's the fact I have a wood floor. I don't know. But I would not purchase this again.

I was concerned about the quality of the headboard and siding on this platform bed, but the actual bed looks great assembled. Also, assembly was relatively simple and came in two boxes with adequate instructions. One thing to be wary of is the middle support pieces that the wooden slats rest on--if your bed is on a hardwood floor, any movement at all will cause the supports to slip out and the mattress to sag in the middle. The supports would probably work fine on carpet or a rug. My solution to this issue was putting one of the boxes the bed came in under the frame - it was the perfect height and length to support the middle. Since then we've had no issues with support of feeling like the middle will cave in. My second concern was having a memory foam mattress I needed a flat solid surface - so what I did after assembling the bed was went and picked up plywood to lay across the slats. This has worked perfectly! Overall I give this bed a thumbs up - what you see looks amazing, how it's stabilized might be a little ghetto but no one see's it and that's all that matters.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The bed platform was of overall high build quality. The exception was the wooden slats and the plastic supports for under the bed. These pieces, however, are out of sight and still serve their purpose well.

Good looking bed for the price. I am 60 yrs old, female and had no problem assembling the bed myself, without any bad language during the process. It did take some time though. I used an electric screwdriver to assemble the bed slats and it was quick. The slats are sawed plywood, so they are very sharp and splintered, but understandable for the price. This is not a bed for heavy people. I weigh 145 lbs and it's great for me, but I can't see it being sturdy enough for two adults or a larger person. It wouldn't take much $ to get real wood slats from the store to make this bed sturdy for holding more weight. It's really a good looking bed for the price!

The bed looks gorgeous, no doubt. Like some other reviewers have mentioned, the instructions are not great, the wood quality for the slats are really bad and you will need to wear gloves to avoid splinters. The slats rest on a cross wooden piece in the middle which rest on 4 plastic legs. the plastic legs are not even screwed on to that wooden piece but fit into round slots (not well enough). so the base is not sturdy at all and I not fully confident about the bed. Within a few days one of the plastic legs broke and overstock was quick in shipping me spares.

This is an awesome purchase and of great quality. As mentioned in other reviews, the instructions are basically nonexistent so take your time with assembly. The wooden slats are not finished or sanded in any form or fashion. After several splinters and a little bleeding, I opted for gloves. The black plastic legs to support the middle beam are essentially useless. I rented a drill at Home Depot and added some extras screws for additional support. Also, UPS will just leave it at your place if you are not home so be sure to check the shipping status updates. Thus far the bed is perfect! No creaking and very handsome/stylish. I am thrilled with this purchase and it goes well with the Andalucia bench I found on Overstock as well! My bedroom now resembles an upscale hotel versus an abused dorm room. Hallelujah!!!

Bed was pretty easy to set (the men set it up but it didn't take long). I love it, it has a very classy look and feel to it. I thought the head piece was going to be awkward and bulky but it looks pretty darn good, just having a hard time to find bedding for it, because I don't want it to clash with the head piece. But, overall bed is good. I'm loving it.

I read the reviews and didn't pay too much attention to the comments regarding the wooden slats. I SHOULD HAVE! The first night sleeping on this was terrible and woke up to a lopsided bed. Next day was spent at home store shopping for sturdier slats for support. Low and behold the slats I had to purchase and have cut, were cut just too small. After a few hours of experimenting with boxsprings from previous beds/slat combo, I had to come to grips with reality. Bad purchase for the price and additional spent. Not worth it, and Overstock will charge me shipping for the return label. Lesson learned, an expensive one at that. Never again Overstock.

Bed is absolutely beautiful. Looks like a much more expensive bed. The middle support piece is not well engineered, however. Holes didn't match up with support legs, so when it was put together it collapsed. Had to create my own middle support using four 12" two by fours and screwing them into the support frame. Not the worst thing in the world, but a little bit of a hassle. I have to say though, the bed is really nice looking. Maybe you will have more luck than I did with the middle support.

MY LITTLE 8 YEAR OLD LOVES THIS ITEM. PUTS A FINE TOUCH TO HER BEDROOM AND IS VERY COMFORTABLE. I MUST ADD THOUGH. THE WOODEN SLATS ARE VERY CHEAP SO I HAD 1 INCH THICK X 61IN LENGTH BOARDS INSTALLED (6 OF THEM) FOR SUPPORT AS THE SLAT THAT CAME WITH THE BED KEPT FALLING WITH MY LITTLE ONE ON THE BED(NOT EVEN JUMPING) SHE IS 51LBS AND IT JUST SEEMED A BIT MUCH FOR HER. SLATS NEED MORE IMPROVEMENT AND BARELY FIT IN THE SLOTS THAT COME WITH THE BED
Great looking, masculine design and a dark brown color that's very similar to photo. Surprisingly simple to assemble, the most 'time consuming' thing was the slats in the frame that support the mattress - they're simple to put it, there's just a lot of them. And Overstock.com customer service was awesome! The first headboard had a defect and I requested a new one. It took about a week to get it, but customer service stayed in touch with me throughout to ensure me they were 'on it.' Was very impressed - it was my first Overstock.com purchase and if it had been handled poorly, I probably wouldn't have gone back (sleeping on the floor kinda sucks). But the customer service made me give them another try, and I've bought several items since and have been happy with every purchase.
I fell in love with the look of this bed, and after I purchased it I read some of the reviews that were somewhat negative. TOTALLY DISAGREE.....The bed was simple to assemble....and i HATE/DETEST putting anything together. Everything assembled with Ease and even the mention of the planks being an issue were NOT. Keeping it clean with ease, and the comfort styling is something I've seen for nealy $1,000 in furniture stores/ads. It is somewhat heavy and if you live upstairs as I do in an old haunted mansion, make sure you have help carrying the frame itself up the stairs. It is the two sets of wooden planks that add to the weight. Thanks again, OVERSTOCK RULES
I'm really happy overall. The only problem I had is that the wood slats that make the platform are not super strong and within a week my side of the bed was falling down. The outside frame was fine and seems sturdy, it's just the wood rib-like supports for the mattress that failed. I'm a 200 pound man so that may be the problem because my girlfriend's side of the bed was fine. My solution was to by 3 pieces of fencing and having them cut to 61.5", then placing those across the thin slats for extra support near the head of the bed. It cost me *** and so far that is working great. The look of the bed is really awesome and if you don't mind putting in a small amount of extra work then this is a great value.
