(1) It isn't real velvet. It is a white microfiber. Very soft and nice for the price. (2) If you go with the white bed, I recommend you spray paint white the two black metal pieces that go behind the headboard and the black feet before assembly. Those black pieces would really stick out and look odd against a white bed. (3) I saw a review that said you need a LOW PROFILE box spring, not a regular one. So glad I followed that advice! The low profile box spring is exactly what is needed so that you don't see the box spring above the padded sides. Looks great with low profile box spring. My daughter loves her bed!
We are very happy with this bed. It came when they said it would and the assembly instructions were clear. It took two adults maybe an hour to put it together. It's heavy and well made. We bought the regular box spring and mattress and not fit fine. I like that I don't need a bedskirt. It looks great in our room. The color matched our cherry set so we didn't need other furniture and the price was good.
A regular box spring is too high. If you could make this platform style by adding more slats it would work. A regular king mattress set covers too much of the headboard. Takes away the grandeur of it all.
