We were looking for a contemporary platform bed for our guestroom and this one fit the bill perfectly. It was very easy to assemble and the color is a true black, not an espresso. I do wish the headboard were a few inches shorter. My only complaint is the longest center support (there are 2 included- one short and one long) is too short so really doesn't support the bed. Overall a beautiful bed that I recommend.
