I bought this bed to go with my Alexis night stands. They have a contemporary, slightly Asian aesthetic which is exactly what I was going for. The bed arrived in 3 weeks. The box was damaged but the contents weren't. The usual excellent packaging! It looks just like the picture online. On closer inspection, some of the joins were a bit off, as if they weren't tapped in correctly. Doesn't affect the overall look or sturdiness of the piece. Assembly took two people. Some of the pilot holes didn't match up. Sent enough screws to securely assemble the bed. (Just because there is a hole in a piece of wood doesn't mean it has to be screwed down - lots of conversation on that topic...) Once assembled, it looks gorgeous and is very sturdy. A terrific buy!
