It is a beautiful bed aesthetically. I've gotten lots of "Ohhs and Ahhs'. I'm pleased with that. I liked the bed because of the classy appeal. I read the reviews before purchasing and expected that I would have to purchase a wooden board or something to steady the bed more. I wasn't, however, expecting to purchase a box-spring because there were not enough wooden slates to secure the bed. I would suggest to Overstock to reclassify the bed as a 'Non" Platform bed and suggest a box-spring purchase up-front. To expected customers, I would say, please purchase a box-spring to support your mattress.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the color was exactly as represented in the picture
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is a little less than expected. After 1 month of purchase, I can hear the boards creaking.... Not good
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The bed is described as a platform bed and it is NOT at all. I purchased a memory foam mattress with the bed and when I set the bed up I realized that the wood boards did not safely secure the mattress and I had to purchase a box-spring unexpectedly.
