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!
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.

The assembly was intuitively easy to put together. My son was able to put it all together in no time at all, and he is not the most handy-man person I know. The quality of the wood was surprisingly good, not flimsy which I was dreading given the price. The height of the bed is a medium low, which is fine. If you like a higher height, you will need a thicker mattress. Overall, it's a great purchase, great price and I am happy.
I was looking for a bed for my teenage son and saw this one on Overstock and thought perfect. It was sleek enough for me and sohisticated enought for him. We loved the color and the smell of the bed. The color is very rich. The setup was very easy. It took him less than an hour to assemble the bed. He's very happy with it. I was also impressed with the time of delivery. It actually came 4 days earlier than stated in the order. Very happy with that.

I purchased this bed (along with the matching dresser and two night stands) and the bed is excellent quality. It has a Mid Century Modern vibe with the peg style legs and the wood is a beautiful dark satin brown. It tends to be more brown then red in color and matches nicely with other woods such as walnut and wenge. It feels sturdy and was easy to put together ... it took more time to unpack it then it did to assemble it. I estimate 30 minutes if you have a cordless screw driver or 50 minutes if you use a phillips.

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.
Overall, this is a great bed. It is well constructed, well packed and easy to assemble. We did have an issue where one of the metal faceplates was screwed into the wrong side of a piece of the headboard. We had to remove it, drill new holes and move it about 3 inches to the right. That was annoying, but took an extra 10 minutes to work around (and a really large drill bit). After that hiccup, the bed went together in a flash and is really pretty. We haven't slept on it yet, but have high hopes.
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)
