This bed seems to be of good quality. No problems with assembly, hole alignment or missing pieces. Unfortunately, the actual color is not taupe. My bedroom walls are beige/cream and this bed appears gray. I am disappointed with the color but will not return it because of the huge hassle that would be. If you want a gray bed, this is the one! The upholstery also has a slight sheen that I think makes it look a little cheap.
I am very particular with everything I buy and do extensive searches for what I want so this is an honest review. The color is a eggshell/cream with a linen style fabric. I put it together myself and that was hard. Make sure you have another person to help you because the bed is very heavy. Also when you are putting the screws in be conscious of your hands on the linen because the dirt from the screws on your hands will easily leave brown marks from where you were holding the bed. Easy clean up with some soap and water though. The black part in the back everyone is talking about only really shows (about 2in) on the bottom left and right hand sides. It does not take away from the bed AT ALL. Make sure you have a 20in boxspring underneath and you won't have any issues. The headboard is tall and beautiful. Great buy. So happy.
My husband assembled this by himself in about 1 hour, so not too bad. It included all the pieces and he did not run into any trouble. But we did have a heart attack for a second because the headboard and side rails looked like totally different colors at night with dim lighting. I think it was due to the angle in the grain of the fabric. But in the daylight the fabric matches and looks the same, but at night they look different... so strange! I bought the option "Cream White" and expected an off white, maybe Ivory color, but it's definitely more of a light gray-beige. Our wall color is a light warm taupe, and our decor is more warm tones, while the bed is more of a cool tone beige, so the tones kind of clash which is disappointing. But we will still keep the bed because it is pretty good quality and a good price. I will just have to try to add some gray or cool tone decor to the room to balance it out. A few notes, there is about a 1-2 inch gap around the whole bed between the box spring and the side rails. I expected this since many had already commented about it. Wish it were more flush. Also, you will need a special low profile box spring. Our standard size box spring sticks out about 2 inches above the rails, but I used extra deep fitted sheets to stretch over the mattress and part of the box spring.
