I have to admit I didn't really know what platform bed meant when I bought this, not realizing that you only use a mattress not a box spring in it. That was my fault, but I have a temperpedic bed and tried it just with the mattress and did not think it was that comfortable, so I put the box spring and mattress in and it is nice and comfortable. It is not the low profile because I did it this way, but if you need firm support, you will want a box spring, the wood slats and a mattress don't provide this. It is a great color and well made and looks really nice. We have dark purple and grey-blue bedding and this accents it well.
This is an OK product. VERY painful to assemble and the coloration actually is an odd color grey / purple-ish and a fake denim texture. I guess I expected something nicer with the rave reviews. It's a nice product for the price but not what I'd envisioned. I felt a little stuck after investing so much time in assembly.
I love this bed, it is very modern and unique! I purchased this bed because of the high headboard. First, lets discuss assembly... this bed came complete with all of the pieces and tools to assist in assembling a bed that is very sturdy with reinforced support. I am a female and I put this bed together myself with almost no issues. The reason I say almost is because you will need two people to correctly align and assemble the headboard as it come in two separate pieces. You will need one person to hold and align the top potion of the headboard to the bottom portion correctly, while the other person screws in the back. The remaining frame is very sturdy and come with a ton of support for your mattress. Although this is a low profile bed ( about 2 inches from the floor) I added a box spring and my set up is just fine. Second, quality..... the material is faux leather but does not look cheap. However, in some areas in the top portion of the headboard, the inseam stitching is stretched a bit much which causes the material to pull a bit (but no rips or tears). I am very careful with the bed so I am not worried about ripping the material. The purpose for my 4 star rating is because of the reason I just mentioned above regarding the stitching. My home is very chic and modern so I would send this bed back in a second if I thought it looked cheap (but it does not). Last, overall look and quality. Be sure to inspect your bed upon arrival for rips and tears in the material which may have been caused is the packing and shipping process. Overall, This bed is an eye catcher and the bed (once assembled) is about 5.5 feet high up the wall. I LOVE MY BED.... I have a white Vera Wang coverlet quilt set on it and tons of pillows.This bed sit behind a plum purple wall and the white just pops. It looks stunning and that is the exact word my guests use to describe my bed when they see it. *please excuse any typos
I absolutely love my new bed. After reading the reviews about the extra inches on the side, I decided to get the full size for my queen size mattress as the measurements matched up. DO NOT DO THIS. I ended up having to return the full size bed and re-order to get the queen (the process was actually quite easy). My mattress fits perfectly in the queen frame and there is only about an 1/2 inch space between my mattress and the edges of the frame (its just enough space to make tucking sheets in easier). My dad and uncle put it together and it took them about an hour. I have purple sheets and a white duvet and the gray frame is perfect for the look.
