The bed is much lighter-weight than expected. I have a old, iron bed in my guest bedroom; so I guess I had unrealistic expectations of the Austen. At least the Austen king size bed has much-needed extra leg support in the middle. I like the design of the bed, but I don't like the fact that it sits low to the floor. The bed would look better if it were higher off of the floor. But there are a couple of pluses to the low height: First, short people like me can get in and out of the bed easily. Secondly, if you have an extra-large king-size quilt covering, you won't need a bedskirt. I don't like to store things under beds; but for those of you who need a bed that eliminates the temptation, this one will do it for you. About the only things that can be stored under the bed is a broom. I'm glad I purchased the Austen because the price was right and the design is pretty.
