I searched high and low for an affordable bed before I finally found this one. It is very high quality, easy to assemble and I love the design! In my search through furniture store after furniture store, I was frustrated by the high cost and apparent low quality of most beds out there. The Vilas bed is HEAVY rubberwood with a gorgeous rich, deep color, and solid construction. The linear frame is well balanced by the tapered legs that give it a neat design twist. One thing I was a little worried about before I hit the "order" button was the possibility that the height of the headboard would appear disproportionately dominant. However, once I assembled it and put my 12" mattress in, it looked perfectly proportioned. I haven't taken measurements of the underbed clearance, but my underbed bins were about 1/8" too tall for this. This was easily remedied by putting rubber furniture pads under the legs. Voila!! I would highly recommend this product to anyone, but I'm hoping no one I know buys it so that I can maintain the illusion that I found a one-of-a-kind, handcrafted design piece! Love it!
