This is a great piece of functional furniture and a very-good value. Having had some past experience assembling furniture, and a good friend to help, it was fairly easy to assemble. Only issue I had is that it was a little damaged in shipment, but that part is against the wall, an isn't seen.
the bed itself was pretty easy to assemble(see other reviews for tips on getting the bottom rungs to fit) and looks and feels like a higher end item. Looks like real leather. Very low-a box spring would make it better, but isn't required. Only issue was delivery- multiple large boxes, missing pieces(TINY little brackets were missing) and the only way to remedy was to have a whole new shipment sent, which would be billed if we didn't return all the other boxes immediately. In the end the brackets magically arrived, as did a whole new shipment of 4 large boxes, the happy UPS guy took them back. Ultimately I'll say, great bed, great result, but the online "chat" help from overstock was OK but obviously off-shore and scripted and a pain to get through.(they kept telling me to drop the return off at the closest post office or UPS store- it's a double bed...not likely!) Still, bed was so nice i would buy this way again.
