The frame assembles reasonably well and seems very sturdy, The bolts were coated with some type of black oily film, so be sure to use something protective when sorting the parts, not the carpet. Appearance is OK, although the wood end pieces have cut-outs and holes that seemed to have been designed for a different model. I purchased a 9" mattress but the single mattress catch on the bottom frame is less than 2* high and the mattress slides right over it, making it virtual useless as a sofa. It might work better with a thinner mattress but I would consider going up a few grades to get something more versatile.
