So I was VERY impressed with the leather headboard and footboard. I was NOT impressed with the support though. It is 4 pieces of wood that are only about 1 1/2 inches thick. Flimsy wood. We have a king size bed and the idea of 4 pieces of wood less than 2 inches thick could support it was ridiculous! We have a memory foam mattress and didn't want to use a box spring so we went and bought thick plywood and set it on top of their crummy wood and it worked nicely. We are happy with it now, but I was shocked at the lack of support.
