I love, love, love this bed! It makes my masterbedroom look so elegant! Everyone loves it. I think my husband mentioned that the assembly was easy since he put it together, but he didn't take more that an hour to do so. What a great look without paying so much for it. I was going to pay the same price for just a leather headboard and when i saw this....i was like OMG i can get this whole bed! I got the king sized and it looks so awsome! I love walking into my bedroom and seeing my bed...it really stands out....My cousin bought one at a fancy gallery for over $1,000.00 and when she saw this one she was like oh, you found one....lil did she know it was faux leather.....This bed really dresses up a room and goes good with any dark funiture....i would totally recommend this bed...you'll love it....and i'm a picky person! It is actually taller than the picture....or i just have some big/tall matresses, but that's okay, it makes it look nicer too! Does take a few weeks for delivery, but was totally worth it!
