We have never had a platform bed before and decided to try it for our guest room. Well the bed is beautiful a gun metal gray color and so easy to put together and arrived in excellent shape. When all done it looked so inviting that we decided to try it out and now the guest bedroom has become ours. The frame is so tailored looking and does not take up a lot of room, just really makes a statement and we love it. Our son wanted one but at the time you were out so they bought the Bronx and they love theirs. Platform beds are definitely the way to go. The bed makes no noise, unlike the old metal beds and is so sturdy and just gives the whole room a high end look. I could not be more pleased. As an added bonus, we are on the 2nd floor and delivery was to the door. Have to love that !!
