My partner and I were looking for two twin-sized beds for one of our guest bedrooms. Although, our home is a garden-style home, we are fond of timeless furnishings as it reminds us when life was simple., and less complicated. These beds are sturdy, classic, and our family and friends repeatedly share how lovely they look! Considering we like the "nostalgic" look, these beds fit the bill - the beds are made by modern means, but appear as well-design antiques. I am an avid shopper at Overstock.com, and not once, have I been disappointed on any purchase, and trust me, you too will be not be disappointed for the simple elegance of these beds.
