The price was right, the style was perfect. It came in a few boxes and was assembled with a friend in less than 2 hours. There is enough room under the bed to store a few things if needed. I have a sleep number bed and picked this because I needed a platform bed for the mattress. The mattress is tight in the rainlings and when a heavy comforter is on, it hangs over the footboard covering it, but that doesn't matter to me. After a year this is still a sturdy bed, with nothing loose or anything having had to be retightened. And there has been a lot of jumping and rolling around on it. Buy it.
The first thing to note about this bed is that it is really designed for a mattress that is below 10" high. Any more than that and you all but lose the headboard. Since I just moved into an apartment with a low ceiling, I wanted a sturdy low profile platform bed for my 14" mattress. But half-way through the assembly, I noticed that the mounting brackets were inverted on both sides (brackets meant for opposite sides had been used). A quick call to Overstock had a replacement bed sent to me within days. The clearance from ground to mattress (slats included) is about 4.5" so after assembling the bed, I decided to remove the slats and lay them across 2.5" high boards on the ground, gaining me about an inch of extra headboard space.
Fantastic,beautiful bed ! I have received many compliments on how sturdy the bed is. Take time putting bed together and the result is amazing....well worth the $$$. We made it into a platform bed by putting a 5/8" board under mattress.
I can't speak to the longevity of the frame since I just received it. However, I was surprised upon receiving it to see that "Porch & Den Leonidas Monticello" was not the name on the box. "Zinus" is the brand. I felt rather deceived by this because this same frame was available at another online retailer for less. When I googled, "12-inch Solid Wood Queen-size Platform Bed" it came right up.
