This bed is easy to put together. You do not need a traditional box spring. I purchased one on Overstock that was perfect. Do check the pieces prior to putting it together. One portion was smashed in on one side and some screw holes were stripped. Overstock sent a replacement part and that was helpful. My 12yr old pretty much put it together himself.
The color does not look like the photo at all. It's a speckled silver and charcoal color that looks like grey from a distance, but isn't what I thought I was buying. I ended up spray painting it a dark grey. It is a well constructed bed ... that comes in a billion parts. 3 stars to balance the not-as-described color vs better construction than expected.
This bed is so cool… It's solid metal and very modern looking. I have it in a pink, art deco guestroom and it is a great masculine balance. It's gotten many compliments. Only issue is that my six-year-old has his foot on the frame jumping onto the bed… But he isn't supposed to jump on it anyway so I don't think that's a legitimate complaint. Took about 30 minutes to put together with the "help "of a little boy
All metal bed, goes together easily with patience. A double was a good size for a small bedroom. Purchased a compressed mattress for it. It is a little low but ok for guests or a child. Two adults of average size
