Update the look of your room with this stylish queen-size bed from Vilas. This bed offers somewhat of an antiqued style with its tall headboard and elegant tapered legs. It includes 12 durable slats, so it can be used without a box spring....more
Made from rubberwood with a warm, tobacco finish, this Queen-size bed includes twelve slats for mattress support. This bed features a tall headboard, low footboard and elegant, tapered legs.
This lovely queen-size bed can be used with or without a box spring thanks to the 12 included slats, making the piece perfect for your standard or platform mattress. The solid finish pairs with sleek lines to create a traditional look that blends effortlessly into both modern and old-world decors. This furnishing can be coordinated with other items from the same collection to create a streamlined look.
Includes 12 slats
Intended for use without a box spring
Dimensions: 44 inches high x 62 inches wide x 85 inches long
Floor clearance from side rails is 6 inches
Assembly required. This item ships in three (3) boxes.
Mattress, box spring, and bedding (comforter, sheets, pillows, etc.) are NOT included.
My headboard came with a big hole punched through it, showing what is most definitely particle board under veneer. Some parts of the bed appear to be solid wood, and overall the bed looks great; I just wish Overstock would be more honest about the construction materials. Also, in the product Q&A it says this bed was made in the USA, but the boxes have "made in Malaysia" stamped all over them. Zero stars to Overstock for honesty, but the bed itself is pretty nice and feels solid (particle board notwithstanding). There's a little off-gassing; it's not overwhelming, but enough to make me want to air it out for a few days before sleeping in it. If it doesn't dissipate, i'll update the review.

I searched high and low for an affordable bed before I finally found this one. It is very high quality, easy to assemble and I love the design! In my search through furniture store after furniture store, I was frustrated by the high cost and apparent low quality of most beds out there. The Vilas bed is HEAVY rubberwood with a gorgeous rich, deep color, and solid construction. The linear frame is well balanced by the tapered legs that give it a neat design twist. One thing I was a little worried about before I hit the "order" button was the possibility that the height of the headboard would appear disproportionately dominant. However, once I assembled it and put my 12" mattress in, it looked perfectly proportioned. I haven't taken measurements of the underbed clearance, but my underbed bins were about 1/8" too tall for this. This was easily remedied by putting rubber furniture pads under the legs. Voila!! I would highly recommend this product to anyone, but I'm hoping no one I know buys it so that I can maintain the illusion that I found a one-of-a-kind, handcrafted design piece! Love it!

I ordered the "Vilas" set (excluding the high dresser which was not in stock at the time) and can say that this bed wasn't too difficult putting together by yourself. The only area where you would need help with is latching the side panels and the headboard together, because it takes some lifting. I tried doing this alone and the headboard fell on my foot and it is still bruised till this day (it's been over a month). Suffice to say, this bed is sturdy and solid, and doesn't wobble around.
I have a couple issues/ comments, and WARNINGS to a potential buyers:
1. As mentioned by other reviews, this bed does not have support legs at the head or foot of the bed, just leg one in the center. Someone mentioned their "fix" was to add brackets at the center head & foot beam, however I did not want to ruin the lovely finish by drilling unnecessary holes into it. MY solution was to buy a small 2"x2" piece of wood to make another set of legs at the center head, and center foot. I ended up only putting it at the head, because you can see the legs at the foot of the bed if I were to put it there - something I was not happy with aesthetically.
2. The 12 slats may be sufficient for some, but since this was going to be my first time having a bed without a box spring, I wanted more support. I ended up buying two pieces of particle board and laying it on top of the slats - this gave me the extra support I wanted - especially with a memory foam mattress.
3. ULTIMATE WARNING: After buying a 12" memory foam from Overstock as well, it did NOT fit into the bed frame! The INTERIOR measurements of the bed frame are 59.5" W x 79.5" L... where all Queen mattresses are a standard 60x80. BIG PROBLEM. I'm positive the mattress was even larger than 60x80 because the memory foam expands - so it hangs off the bed about an inch. I'm curious to know what kind of mattress all other reviewers have purchased and how they made it fit?!

Little background to help you put this review in perspective... I'm a 27 year old guy living in New York. I buy many, many things online, but only from reputable companies/manufacturers, so I was more than a little apprehensive about buying something like a bed frame from Overstock, where it’s often not exactly clear who the manufacturer of a given item even is. However, at the time of purchase (September 2011), there were 38 very detailed and helpful reviews for it, and they painted enough of a positive picture that I took the risk and ordered it (it also just happened that as I was about to order, I noticed that Overstock was offering *FREE* shipping that day! It would have normally been around $120 extra). It arrived very quickly – the packaging had received a small amount of damage during shipping, but after opening it up I was relieved to find that all pieces were very carefully packaged in Styrofoam and were in pristine condition. Had to put it together by myself which (as others have said) did take longer, but was not impossible. Overall it took me (with a drill) around 2.5 hours to do, but FYI, I’m pretty meticulous with these things so it’ll probably take others less. Once together, the bed felt great, very solid. All pieces appeared to me to be solid wood… and it turns out they are - A family friend of mine who’s a retired architectural carpenter happened to swing by my place and said it’s all solid wood and that by every indication, it’s well made. As you can imagine, having an authority on carpentry say it’s well made was very nice to hear. So to sum it up, this bed is simply amazing, and at only $*** (as of this writing), it’s a steal.

My partner and I love the bed! It looks like a bed that would be sold in Room and Board. The bed was delivered in three separate boxes when it was delivered. Because of the good craftsmanship and weight of the wood, I will advise that two people assemble the bed. We opted for a 12” memory foam mattress as the bed does not accommodate a box spring. Great price point, nice clean lines, and fantastic quality. Keep up the good work Overstock!
With a father who is a high end cabinet maker, I am pretty picky about furniture, never mind buying a piece online and unseen. This bed is very well made and solid, and I like it even better than I did in the pictures online. Good value!
This bed is poorly constructed. The slats only run half the width of the bed, and the middle plywood beam (running down the length of the bed) that the slats rest on is supported not by the headboard and footboard, but only two 2x2 posts. These posts are not solid 2x2s but instead are two 1x2s glued together. And the screw that connects the post to the beam is in the middle of the post -- i.e. in the glue seam. One of our posts is splitting down the middle and we've had the bed less than a year. The other post somehow shredded the plywood beam and just toppled over. We drilled a new hole for it and screwed it back in. We're lucky no more damage happened to the bed while the entire thing was being supported by one split-open 2x2. I had no idea that I would look back on my prior cheap-o ***** bed as the paragon of sturdy construction....
Always skeptical when I can't see the product in person but I have learned to read reviews and usually stick to buying from Overstock. This bed is very sturdy. It is perfect for my son's room because he doesn't have a lot of space and it is pretty streamline.Color is a very nice, rich deep brown. Am considering buying another one for our cabin because I like it so much. Thx Overstock : )
Overall the bed is great. It matches the other pieces in the bedroom. The color, design and quality of wood is amazing. We did end up using extra screws for the headboard. Since it is so high and we like to sit up against it, we didnt want it to loosen up. Would recommend this to anyone interested in it.
Shipping took the full 7 days and the box for the head board was pretty beat up, but the product was perfectly fine. Put it together by myself in about 30 minutes and it looks great in the room. Headboard is heavy so might need help carrying it upstairs. Got a new firm mattress (beautyrest) that fits into the frame with enough room to fold the comforter around it so i don't hide the wood; love the color of the wood finish. I feel the wood slats give the mattress plenty of support. Great looking platform bed and nice finish for the price. Won't find anything better at a furniture store.

I live in a condo with a flight of stairs and have a question regarding delivery. I'm assuming that the delivery option is UPS since I confirmed with customer service that white glove is not an available option for this product...if overstock can confirm delivery method and other buyers can also confirm their delivery experience that would be great. Does UPS allow you to schedule a delivery so that you don't have to take the entire day off work? Also will they deliver to your door or make you pick up curbside? Thanks!nax850 on Jan 19, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello nax850, This bed is beautiful! This item is shipped in 3 boxes, via standard ground delivery. UPS is not the guaranteed carrier, and delivery can be to anywhere on your property. Because this is shipped via standard ground shipping, they do not usually schedule delivery. Your question will be posted so other customers can comment on their delivery experience. I hope this information helps. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 28, 2014

What is the distance in between slats? Because 5.1 from a previous Q&A does't make sensejowr on Nov 26, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question. Yes, the correct measurement between the slats is 5.1 inches. Please let me know if you have any further questions, and thank you for shopping with us! Have a great day! -Racheloverstockcustomercare2 on Nov 27, 2013
I also believe based on the actual measurements of my Queen size the distance should be closer to 4.1 inches. The side rails have 75 inches of length to screw into, the slats are about 2.5 inches. The math works out to be (75-(2.5 *12))/11=4.09 inches from one slat edge to the next.kpalomin on Apr 25, 2014
