We purchased two beds for our 11 year old twins and they work beautifully in their room. We particularly like the simple, clean look to the bed; important, since we wanted to also create an open look to the room rather than a cluttered one with too much bed furniture. The beds were relatively easy to assemble; a sturdy product that should hold up under our kids energetic use. I would recommend the product for those of you who would like to maximize your bedroom space with a good looking bed.
I recently took delivery of a "Simple Twin-size Espresso Platform Bed." A beautiful piece of furniture, indeed, but unfortunately made of very low quality wood. Upon completion of assembly, I noticed the right leg (attached to the headboad, had split in half, rendering the bed unsuable. This happened despite extreme care. No excessive force was used at all. There are four support legs in the middle, all of which fell off due to poor quality of the soft wood used. Bottom line: Very disappointing. I will not recommend it to anyone.
Would you recommend this to a friend? No

I ordered this be frame for my 23 y/o son as he had a mattress and box spring on the floor. The frame arrived sooner than expected and was easy to assemble. It is a very simple design which is appealing and the wood color is very attractive.I may consider ordering another one for my guest room. I am very happy with the product.

We purchased this bed for a 9 year old boy. We wanted a clean, modern look that will transition into adult. It works perfectly. The bed frame was easy to put together and is remarkably sturdy. If you leave the comforter untucked, you won't see the bedding. Despite the picture, the bed is a good height. We do not use a box spring. There is still ample room to store items under the bed. It was well packaged and had no damage.
This bed is very nice. My only complaint is that one of the screw holes seems to be stripped. I can't get the bolt to tighten in. And watch the instructions as some of the hole numbers they tell you to screw the feet into are wrong. Other than that it's a good buy
Easy assembly and good design along with sturdiness saves this platform bed frame from ZERO stars.
However, the frame itself is too large for a standard twin mattress. It leaves more than a 2 inch gap around all sides of the mattress, making the wooden slats visible. I have checked and re-checked, and the mattress I purchased IS a standard size.
Super easy assembly (just pay attention to all the instructions - there's a reason for the steps!) and a great clean-line, modern look but super comfortable with the right mattress - don't skimp on that part, take the savings from the bed frame and invest in a good one and this bed is a great one!
The description says there is a center leg but I don't see it in the picture. I would like to slide a mattress under the bed, is there a leg that would get in the way?
Thanks!cmkd on Apr 3, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi cmkd, the bed features 4 center legs that run the length of the bed. Unfortunately a mattress would not slide underneath all the way. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 10, 2014

My trundle is exactly 10" high and 721/2" long. Would it fit between the legs and is there a fraction above 10" in height?blondegram on Aug 25, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us blondegram. The height under the bed is 10 inches. Due to the height of this bed, a trundle bed frame and mattress would not fit under it. Please let us know if you have any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 27, 2013
How much distance is between the slats? I'd like to put a shikibed (sort of a contemporary shikibuton futon-style mattress) on the frame.dragongurl913 on Aug 4, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

The height under the bed is 10 inches. A box spring is just a support that you would use under your mattress. You do not need a box spring with this bed. You can still use one if you like though.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 24, 2013

Is this a true platform where the mattress floats on top of the platform or does the mattress drop down into the frame a few inches?momoyaw on Mar 12, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
