I ordered this bed for my guest room in my apartment. I wanted a modern look, but wanted to maintain some visual space. I liked the graphic pattern of the rectangles in the headboard but I can still see the nice wall color behind the bed. I also like the fact that I could find a full-sized bed with a headboard AND footboard. This item is heavy and sturdy and the bed comes together (once assembeled) as one fluid piece of furniture. It adds a contemporary look and all my guests thus far have commented on how nice it is.
