This platform bed was our first furniture purchase through Overstock. It is made in China, but everything works and all the pieces were there. Don't be afraid of all the bolts and screws. It goes together very quickly as long as you have a power screwdriver. We put the center brace in the middle before screwing down the slats. We had the whole bed together in less than an hour. EASY and met our expectations. The price was really inexpensive too.
