We were looking everywhere for a low profile king bed frame without a headboard or footboard. I saw this bed and thought it looked perfect was was concerned that the quality may be poor or the color may be off. WE WERE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED. The pieces come packaged very well to protect all from damage. There was a lot to assemble - a 2 person job if you ask me - but not difficult at all. The bed is strong and the wood is sturdy. In fact, we ended up buying 2 of them! The are simple and classic and a great buy!!
Bed looks great, and was relatively easy for me to assemble on my own, without help from the wife. Unfortunately, the braces to the center support beam (runs down the middle underneath the bed) are all so loose, like the screws were stripped straight out of the package. I bought brackets from the hardware store to firm the legs up, but the wood is so soft that the screws just pulled right out. We have resorted to stacking books under the bed under the middle support, so the slats don't break. The bed still looks good, you'd never know there was a problem just seeing the bed set up. I guess this is what you get for a discount rate online... can't ship it back after all the hassle of putting the thing together! Just disappointing.
This is the first platform bed I have ever slept on. I can honestly say my husband and I are very pleased. I was not around while the hubby assembled the bed . . . but I understand there was a lot of swearing. While the bed took some time and effort to assemble, it was definitely worthwhile. In fact, we are thinking of getting another one in a different size.
This bed is a beautiful option for someone who wants a clean, elegant look. It matched our 40-year-old mahogany dressers perfectly and was fairly easy to assemble. As other buyers have reported, you will need to get some extra screws as the manufacturer does not provide enough, so be prepared. We considered that a minor problem, and are enjoying our new bed, which is exactly as pictured!
This bed is the exact same bed that a local high-end furniture store carries. But for half the price. The cordovan matched our cherry dressers perfectly. Beautiful wood. The slats need to be closer together for a latex mattress, they are 4 inches apart, they should be at least 3". We simply added several 1x3 and now it's very sturdy. The center support is fine, I was worried about that. Took about 45 minutes to put together, not hard at all. As other reviewers stated, for some reason, they only give you enough screws for about half the slats and the pre-drilled holes don't line up at all. But, since we added slats we had to drill new holes anyway, no big deal really. All in all, it's very sturdy and has totally changed the look of our room.
I read other reviews about this bed but decided to order anyway. I trusted in the fact that it was hardwood. It shipped relatively fast and after set up it looks simply perfect with our bedroom furniture. I put it together by myself in about 40 minutes. It did have a few missing screws for the rail supports but no big deal. I would highly recommend this bed it works great with the Serta Memory Foam mattress we purchased at Overstock also. All in all great deal!
Bought the bed when it went on sale. For the money we paid, its good.It appears really good. We haven't slept on it yet since we are waiting for the mattress.Ordered kingsize bed, it doesn't look really sturdy as it appears in the picture. It comes with 12 horizontal slats and 1 center slat with 2 support legs.We went to lowes and bought 2 more center slats and support legs as we felt the slats were bending as soon as we sat on it.May be we should put a plywood sheet for extra support to the mattress and spreading out the weight on the bed.The horizontal slats need to be nailed but they aren't long enough to be nailed to both the edges of the bed. So we alternated between the sides.Took 2 people about 45 min to assemble.On the whole it's cheaper than most beds available in the platform bed category and simple and basic structure.
