It was nice to see the spring platform stamped with "Made in USA." I don't think the rest of it was, though. Overall this is a nice, sturdy bed. We bought it to replace my daughter's little girl bed and she couldn't be more thrilled. We also purchased a memory foam mattress from Overstock and her bed is now the most comfortable in the house. The spring platform foundation is adjustable to raise or lower the mattress height, but a traditional box spring makes the bed too high even on the lowest adjustment. You definitely do not need a box spring though. The paint finish on the metal frame seems pretty durable, too. We had the bed assembled in about 30 minutes. It was pretty straightforward. Very satisfied. Another good purchase from Overstock!!
