The bed looked much lighter online than in actuality. It's more of an espresso color. I read the question from someone, asking if a boxspring was needed. The customer service rep replied that it go either way because of the slats. Our mattress is 10" thick, and if we didn't have boxsprings, the mattress would come way below the cushioned part on the headboard. Very dumb-looking! We got low-profile box springs and they work perfectly. Our 5" boxsprings and 10" mattress puts the top of the mattress right at the bottom of the cushioned part on the headboard. Regular boxsprings would probably work, but I thought it'd look too high. I love the low footboard on this bed! The headboard is very heavy and will stand flush against your wall. Nice cushion, too. Bed seems sturdy, but we had to cut more slats. The five provided for a king bed just aren't enough. The slats for the king have little pieced that go down to the floor for support. Shipping was fast, but the boxes used for the product are junk and tore up. Fortunately, none of the bed was damaged. I'm happy with our purchase.
