this is a beautiful bed and not hard to install. However the very first time we used it and my husband rolled over, the slats broke and the mattress collapsed onto the floor! We are not heavy - my husband weighs 130 lbs. The 3 narrow slats are simply insufficent to support the mattress.

We were surprised how quickly this bed arrived at our doorstep, just a few days after ordering it. The freight company called as we expected and it was easy to set up a time for delivery. My husband was able to get this upstairs in pieces and assembly was fairly easy. It looks much more expensive then the purchase price and we are very happy with this purchase as we have been with all our furniture purchases at Overstock.com.
Beautiful bed for the price. The 3 support boards provided are not of high quality. I went out to local home improvement store and purchased a few 1" x 4" of stronger quality and made better support boards. The bed legs are also just 1" x 4" legs, as opposed to true thicker posts. I added small 'L' brackets on the inside to help support the legs and bed rails. if you are willing to add some additional bracing, this is a nice bed for the cost.

We purchased this bed with foam mattress from Overstock. After reading the description, it was not clear that this bed is not the best for foam mattresses. We bought bunkie boards from a local mattress store, and that has worked well so far. The support beams screw into a beam of low-quality plywood along the side rails. One of them has started splitting after one night, so we are going to add some reinforcement. Overall, the price of the bed is appealing, however we will end up spending an additional $***, including the bunkie boards and supplies to reinforce the weak spots. We do love the look of the bed. It is a good mix of contemporary and traditional. The color is exactly as expected. We are happy with the purchase, and would recommend if you like the style.
