I LOVE this bed! It is very, very beautiful and excellent quality. Definitely need 2 people for assembly.
When I was researching this bed and reading reviews, I had questions that no one else touched on. So I want to make my review helpful to others that might be looking for the same information instead of just reviewing the shipping, and all the points that have been overreviewed in my opinion.
The bed is true to color in the picture.
Underneath is very roomy, leaving 12.5 inches from floor to underside of slats.
There is 1 and 3/4 inches between the slats and the top of the rails. A 10 inch mattress works perfectly with this bed.
Yes, it is a platform and does not need a boxspring (slats are sturdy) but I do NOT feel low to the ground. I feel the exact same height as when I had a boxspring and mattress.
A pain to assemble alone (especially the headboard) but very easy with two people. Don't let the other reviews scare you about assembly, just get help, it'll go smoothly, and you'll love this bed!
I bought the whole bedroom set and a different line of rubberwood side table for the living rooms. I believe that they are all made by the same manufacturer.
The fit and finish of the headboard and footboard are excellent. All the exposed parts and major structures are of solid wood.
Now some complaints. The edge of the foot of the bed comes to a point and protrudes slightly. This looks esthetically pleasing but is painful on the shins in the dark. The 10-12 supporting slats for the mattress are of a flimsier wood and are screwed directly on to the frame. This may limit the number of times that the bed frame can be assembled/reassembled.
I would definitely buy the Vermont nightstands and cubbord again. Without a drill, plan on 3 hours of assembly time.
I would not buy the bed as it is not as well constructed.
I"ve looked at this bed for the last year and couldn't make up my mind about buying it. I spent a lot of time reading the reviews and in the end that was the deciding factor on purchasing. So I'll do my part and submit a review. First of all, I've assembled some furniture and I had no trouble assembling this bed alone,(didn't want to wait for my husband to get home from work). I'm not sure what others were talking about but the bed is partially assembled when it arrives. All the pieces were well packed and everything was in perfect shape and the manufacturer supplied extra parts which in my book is always a good thing. Timewise it took me about 4 hours but I didn't rush and read the directions first, something I'm not sure other reviewers did. Anyway, this is a solid bed, all wood and even the slats are finished! There is not one inch of raw wood on this bed. In other words- excellent quality. Beautiful finish, sturdy construction, better get yours before they're all gone.
The bed is beautiful and is worth more than the price! It is very solid and heavy when put together. We were going to put it in the guest bedroom, but ended up using it ourselves. It was easy to put together. We are very happy with it! Thanks!
I purchased this bed in April of 2008. I left a review then but wanted to come back and let everyone know 5 years and a move later, it's still just as sturdy and durable as the day it was first put together. I love this bed. I did need another helping hand to put it together, mainly to help me stand up the headboard, rails etc. Its very easy to put together. The mattress I use with it is a 10in Bodipedic Memory Foam. It's like heaven. No box spring, just the mattress on the slats. I will say, however, I kept the large part of the cardboard box this bed came in and put those on top of the slats before putting mattress down. It helps keep the mattress from getting slat marks and from seeping in between the slats. I'll never get rid of this bed. One day when my husband and I upgrade to a King, this will go into the spare bedroom for guests. Also, I remember this bed wasn't my first choice. I ordered another style and it was delivered but was damaged. We sent it back and Overstock was a gem! No questions asked and it was refunded to my account. This was what I purchased in its place and I am glad that happened because this bed is beautiful and perfect for us.

Are you able to put a select comfort matress and moving frame in this bed frame?vthoney57 on Apr 5, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello- I would advise contacting Select Comfort for their bed requirements. In my research I see that their bed support is quite sturdy and this frame is made for traditional and memory foam mattresses. Any modifications would need to be advised by the company for your safety. I hope this helps you make a better shopping decision. Have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 10, 2013

How are the slats supported? does the bed have any middle legs?bvb1909 on Dec 6, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The bed I purchased does have a center leg. Don't know why they would be different from other poster. I raised it up on leg extenders though and the center post wasn't useful. It hasn't been a problem.daoine on Apr 24, 2013
Can a boxspring and mattress be used with this bed, even though a boxspring is not required?apolo11 on Nov 5, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The bed is tested to hold 440 pounds approximately and comes with 11 slats. If you want to add a box spring you can but it is not needed. The bed may not be as attractive with a higher profile.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 5, 2012
