This is my second bed from Overstock and they both were under $$$. Both beds are excellent quality for the price. It was easy to put together. I hired someone to move my old bed to the guest room and put this one together and it took him about an hour to do both. It is very sturdy. I use a box spring with it, but can barely see it when the bed is dressed. I can also use a bed skirt to totally conceal it if I want to. I was a little skeptical about the bed being faux leather, but it definitely doesn't have that cheap look and it's easier to clean than leather. The faux leather is also pretty soft and not stiff like some materials can be. It has a subtle luster that is just right (not so shiny it looks cheap). It is a very nice modern piece that is not very bulky so it fits in smaller rooms. This bed is terrific.
