I bought the Alsa because it was a Zen-looking platform bed. It looks as good in person as it does on the site. We have a very heavy TempurPedic mattress on it, and it bears the weight just fine. My only caution: check the height of your mattress. Ours is 13" high, and a lot of the headboard is concealed - only about 2-3" showing at the top. Still looks great though! Also bought the matching nightstands, which I definitely reccommend because the bed is so low - might look odd with taller nightstands. Super easy to assemble - my husband did the bed by himself in about an hour. An electric drill is helpful for securing the slats, since there aren't pre-drilled holes. Wasn't an issue for us at all though, would just take longer with a manual one. It did arrive damaged, but Overstock was great and shipped us a replacement free of charge and very quickly. Overall very pleased with the set and overall experience shopping with Overstock.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very sturdy and well constructed. We put a TempurPedic mattress on the bed, and I was concerned about the weight. It isn't a problem at all though - it's a rock!
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate
