This bed is gorgeous. The dark wood is a deep, rich color. Excellent craftsmanship - very sturdy and substantial. I just love the clean lines of this bed. I was impressed by the white glove delivery service. The bed was delivered to our house, carried up 3 flights of stairs, and assembled right in our bedroom. They took all packing materials with them when they left. All my husband and I had to do was place the mattress and linens on the bed! Thank you, Overstock, for a great bed at a great price with great service!
