I read all of the reviews and took the advice of many that recommended buying a metric ball end hex wrench set. This definitely made assembly easier. I assembled the bed by myself and it probably took about 3 hours while watching TV. The trickiest part for me was attaching the side boards to the head and foot boards. I was sitting on a small Rubbermaid stepstool while I was putting this together and realized that the step stool was the same height as the bottom of the siderails when attached!! By balancing the sideboards on the step stool it was very easy to attach them to the head and foot boards.
I bought a new queen size mattress that is about 18" high and makes the mattress height about 31" off of the floor (without a boxspring). This is higher than I thought it would be and there is only about 11 inches of headboard showing above the mattress. It still looks great, it just isn't exactly the look I thought I would get. Also, I'm glad I waited and didn't order the coordinating nightstand as it is only 20" hight and would not work with my pillowtop mattress (which I love, by the way).
Bottom line, I am absolutely satisfied with this purchase. I especially liked the way the hardware was packed. Instead of one big bag full of parts, everything was individually bagged with a number on the bag that cooresponded to the list in the directions, so when you needed a screw that was part #2, you open the #2 bag and there is no question as to which screw is right. Some people have mentioned that you need a drill to screw in the bed slats as the holes are not pre-drilled. I used a ratcheting screwdriver to attach the slats and it probably took me about half an hour to screw them all in by hand, no pre-drilling. Just to give some perspective, I'm a 50 year old woman, not particularly handy, with a bad back and tendonitis in both elbows, and had very little trouble putting this together.
Buy this bed, you won't be sorry. Just check your mattress height before ordering the nightstands!
Ok.. based my purchace on the reviews of others and I must give mine. This furniture is of TOP quality, TOP design and Overstock got it here in less than 5 days coast to coast. Packed with incredible care, lots of packaging and most of it recycleable. The furniture ( I got bed night stand and chest) where all of the same quality and contruction method. It will take you about 45min to 1 hour for the night stand and a good 2 hours for the chest. The hardware is first rate and the assembly instruction very clear and easy to follow. YOu will need a min of tools and can do it alone but with another person helping these time can be cut by half for sure. This stuff is heavy so expect to need some help moving it around once assembled. The wood is WENGE in color (Chocolate) not expresso which is more black . This is more brown. Once assembled this stuff is STRONG make no mistake that they did their homework here. You cannot go wrong with this furniture and Overstock (it was branded the same name by the way) did a great job getting all 377lbs here safe and pretty fast.. I can HIGHLY recommend this to anyone and the shopping experience as well. For what it is worth we als got the 8" Memory Foam mattress and it too is just perfect. We plan to order the King for our main bed after sleeping on this as a guest bed. I have to give this a TOP rating for everything and I am a very tought customer to please but Overstock did this for us and I must share this will you. Good Luck and I hope you will be as happy as we are with your purchase. We will be coming back for more but pleas read the reviews as they seemed to have been pretty right on here.
This bed is actually very good quality and was relatively easy to put together (I shouldn't speak for my husband, but he was able to do it by himself). I rate this so low because we have a thick memory foam mattress and because of the position of the mattress support slats, you can only see about 5 inches of the headboard. With pillows on the bed, it's like not having a headboard at all! The picture shows a thinner mattress, but it never occured to me that our above-average mattress would dominate the headboard like it does. It's still not a bad buy for the money, but if I had known how short the headboard would end up being, I would have paid more for one from a store.
Overstock.com is great--delivery was fast and the packages were in great condition when they arrived. Have no complaints about the product itself, it just doesn't fill our needs.
I purchased this bed based on the overwhelming number of positive and helpful reviews printed here...and I'm glad I did! Firstly, the three boxes arrived quickly and intact with no visible problems. When opened, all three boxes revealed pristine parts, packaged well. Kudos to whoever designed the packaging. Secondly, the instructions could not be clearer. Add to that the tips picked up from the reviews here on overstock.com and wow, I was impressed before I turned a single screw to assemble my new bed. Based on the tips I picked up from others' reviews, I want to share ways to make assembly go quickly, especially if working by oneself. Unpacking: Examine all parts and, based on the ordered of instructions lay them out in an easy to find place next to your work area. Snip open the small plastic bags containing the hardware. My kit had at least one additional piece of hardware in every bag. Don't worry about dust and small bits of Styrofoam that have adhered to the wood. Clean those up later (See below). Read: Spend a several minutes with the instructions. They really are very good. Tools/Equipment Used : Electric drill with assorted small drill bits and phillips head bit, rubber mallet, 4mm ball-end hex wrench (provided), and 5mm hex wrench (provided), Petrolatum. With these tools, assembly really is a snap. Headboard: Skip the superglue and simply tap in the dowels as an alignment device. Assemble the headboard upside down to start and flip over. My kit came with a ball-end hex wrench...an invaluable, time-saving tool! If your kit does not come with one, buy one immediately. ET 35 min. Footboard: The holes for the center rail supports looked small, so I drilled them out a little. I applied a little petrolatum to the screw threads and screwed them in with my phillips head bit. ET 5 min. Side Rails: The long narrow boxes can double as supports while attaching the side rails to the headboard/footboard. Just lay them down parallel with the headboard/footboard and lay the side rails on top. When assembled per the instructions, it's now the perfect time to clean/dust all the assembled solid wood parts. ET 20 min. Support rails: Lay them all out on the side rails, using the extra 80mm bolt as a spacer. If you have no extra 80mm bolt, cut a piece of cardboard to 80mm width (3.15 in.) and use as a template to space the 14 rails. Use a little petrolatum or bar soap to lubricate the screw threads and drop them in the holes. Screw them all in with your phillips head bit. ET 30 min. Stand Back: Look at what you've done! It's a beautiful, solid piece of furniture. Elapsed Time: Unpacking, 30 min. Reading, 15 min. Assembly, 90 min. Packing Material Disposal, 20 min. I highly recommend this bed to anyone!
As the other reviewers have shared, make sure you have ball-end hex key (allen) wrenches to ease the assembly process. If I remember correctly, you'll need 2 sizes: 4 and 6 mm. Attaching the rails to the head and foot boards will be very tedious without them. Total assembly time was about 2.5 hours.
For the price, it was a great find. It looks in person very much like it shows in the photo. Our mattress is a pillow top, and so part of the mattress covers the headboard from view. It's not the tallest headboard you'll find, but from the photos, you shouldn't expect anything different.
To give everyone some measurements to work from, the mattress is 13" off the ground, and our mattress happens to be 12" tall. From the base of the mattress to the top of the head board measures 28", so there's about 16' of headboard showing.
The workmanship is also top notch. The bed is constructed entirely of solid rubber wood, which is a hard wood similar to oak. You'll find some finger jointing in different (structural) parts, but this does not at all take away from the structural integrity of the bed.
The visible parts of the bed (headboard, rails and bottom end) all have a very nice professional (semi-gloss?) dark brown finish. The (hidden) structural members are painted a flat black. The wood painted black is not sealed like the stained parts. It's fibrous like oak and might splinter if you don't handle it with care.
As others have stated, the headboard was a bear! Why the manufacturer wouldn't throw in a $2 tool to save 2 hours of time and a boat load of frustrated reviews is beyond me.... but after the initial frustration, WOW! We have a $xxxxx.xx king bed in our master bedroom and now the new Tribeca bed for the guest room. After putting it together last night, we threw an 11" queen foam mattress on (that we also purchased on Overstock) and slept better than we had in years! Needless to say, we are are playing switcharoo and keeping this new bed for the master! Rock solid and looks like we paid twice as much as we did.
This is a nice bed, a bit tough to put together. Mine came with two small cracks almost undetectable in the headboard, on the side of the wall. I decided to keep "as-is" since defect did not affect strength and I needed a bed presto!
This is a beautiful bed and high quality...it took 2 hours to put together. I would definitely recommend. One thing to note, you can't put a trundle under the bed because it has posts in the middle. You can however put low bins under it for storage. Added a 8 inch mattress and it's high enough...
This bed looks great. I was disappointed to find a small crack on the headboard, so I took a picture of it and sent the photo to Overstock. They contacted me right away and within a very short time they delivered a new headboard. Thanks!
Hello goopster22, No, this product is not listed for white glove delivery. Thank you for checking.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 2, 2013
I am planning to put a memory foam mattress on top of this. Will the bed sink through? What is the measurement for the slats if we decided to buy more slats for more supports?simplehappy9 on Jul 7, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi simplehappy9, this bed features 14 slats that measure 2.5 inches x 60.5 inches. With so many slats even with a memory foam mattress you should be ok. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 9, 2013
We have a memory foam mattress & you really don't need any extra slats with this bed.donnasammond111 on Aug 29, 2013
It's ok. Sags a little in the middle, but not as bad as an old box spring.dakoyta on Oct 18, 2013
Hello alexdaryan, It shouldn't be any harder to disassemble than assemble the bed, which according to the reviews is quite easy. The headboard is super- glued in some parts but all the other parts would just unscrew. If you haven't already, go over some of the reviews that discuss the assembly. We hope this helps and thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 24, 2013
My son took this bed apart and he had no problem. He also set it up twice now with no problem.kmatias on Jul 6, 2013
I moved within two years of buying this and although had a moving company, I packed all my own boxes and this had to come apart to fit down stairs. Only the headboard and footboard need taken off with allen wrench provided, leaving the slatted main support intact and was very easy to put back together once at new place and did it all myself. This is one very solid bed, with no creaking at all and have had thick memory foam mattress with additional 4 inch topper and a mattress pad wrap around to this day, all bought from "The O" and is a beautiful wood. Highly recommend the matching wood Tribeca chest drawer dresser for a beautiful bedroom.namnibor on Jul 16, 2013
OK as long as you don't lose the Allen wrench.dakoyta on Oct 18, 2013

This bed can accommodate a queen size mattress and box spring if desired. The height of the bed rail is 10.5 inches which will give you an indication of how high the mattress and box springs will sit on the bed.overstockcustomercare1 on May 2, 2012
