Never ordered furniture online before so I was a bit apprehensive. I wasn't sure if the "feel" of the wood would be up to par; you know how sometimes when you go to Ikea the furniture looks really good, then when you touch it, it feels like cardboard with veneer over it? So for the price, that's what we were expecting, but the bed was for our daughter and she was really set on having it, so I clicked on "order now". Boy, was I surprised! The bed came in 3 packages. Now here's the real kicker. My daughter (15) received the bed before I got home from work, and she had the entire thing unpacked and assembled by herself (she's 15)! How's that for simple? So then I took a really good look at it. Solid wood, no scratches, sleek, elegant, solid. This is an incredible value!!! Watch out, Ikea!
One word: SOLID. I wasnt expecting this to be so substantial. It is a little more brown that what I was expecting, but thats okay! Also, if you dont like the legs, they just screw on, replacing them with something different is easy. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
My bed frame arrived quickly in three separate boxes. You should have a friend around to help carry them because they are heavy and awkward. Everything arrived undamaged and I assembled the bed by myself with the aid of a power screw gun. I think this bed will get me through the rest of my time here in NYC.

Received the Platform Bed fast. Three boxes. Was worried it would take a lot to assemble but really easy and just a few parts. My husband and I assembled it in about 15 minutes. Love the bed. Our daughter and her friends love it too! Looks expensive and is perfect!
Overstock is the best place to buy beds. I attempted to buy a bed from a high end retailer, but was incredibly disappointed with the delivery options and customer service. I decided to search overstock and found furniture of comparable quality for a fraction of the price. The bed was delivered within days and without any shipping or delivery fees. There was an issue with the headboard as delivered, it was damaged, and Overstock replaced the piece immediately. The design and quality of this bed are top quality, and the price and delivery options make the order a no brainer. The bed is easily assembled by one person. I note that some reviews indicate that a drill is needed for assembly, this is not accurate. The support planks are pre-drilled and can easily be attached to the side rails with a screwdriver. There are a lot of screws, so an electric screwdriver is recommended. I used a 4.7v power screwdriver and was able to assemble the bed quickly. Overstock will be my online furniture retailer going forward. I would recommend this bed to anyone.
The bed arrived in three boxes. You'll probably need help getting the headboard box upstairs due to its weight, but the whole thing only takes about an hour to put together. It's sturdy and doesn't make any creaky noises. The headboard is a little shorter than I anticipated - with a box spring, mattress, and pillows, it doesn't show like I expected. But the bed still looks great. (I rate the quality excellent. Not just good. The form won't submit when excellent is selected)
I was hesitant on purchasing a bed without ever seeing it and given the price point I was not holding out much hope that the quality would be there. This is a fabulous bed, contemporary clean lines, great color and best of all NICE QUALITY! I can't believe I got this nice of a bed at this price. Best online purchase I have made to date.
This bed looks and feels great. It was easy to assemble, the boxes are extremely heavy though, not to mentions this is all sold wood. Great quality, nice finish and modern clean design. The bed is low though and you still need a good mattress to lay on the supporting wood cage.
It's a little pricey but the quality is great. I bought this bed for my six year old son and he loves his new big bed! The first thing I love is that it's solid wood (my husband is really against buying anything that's not solid wood). Secondly, I love that the bed is low profile. If my son ever does happen to roll off the bed, I don't have to worry about him getting hurt. Lastly, this bed can grow with him. I don't have to worry about purchasing another bed when he's older. I believe I received the bed in three separate boxes. The boxes are heavy; so you need at least two people to move it around. The headboard came a little damaged (not much) but since it's on the side that was going up against the wall, it didn't really bother me. We were a little hesitant as this was our first furniture purchase online, but we didn't regret it. My husband loved it so much, he asked if I wanted to get a king size for our bedroom. Great looking bed! Very pleased!
