The bed arrived in perfect condition, and when assembled, it looks fantstic. The bed looks every bit as good as it does in the photo (better in fact), and the workmanship on the bed is very good. It is sturdy and feels solid, and it provides ample support for the mattress or box spring. The bed shipped within a couple of days of placing the order and arrived very quickly. The only "bad" thing is that the assembly instructions are almost unintelligible and it is difficult to figure out which way the legs go on to the frame. But that down side is very minor when compared to the overall quality of the product. It helps to have an electric screwdriver to put this bed together. Assembly took less than 2 hours.
