I love the modern upholstered mid-century inspired beds at R&B and C&B, but seeing them in person... the quality wasn't worth the price tag. I purchased this bed in the color Grey. In person it is slightly darker and cooler toned than the picture on my iPad. If you plan to float this bed in a room, beware! The headboard is finished with linen-like fabric on the front, top and sides, but the back is finished with black fabric similar to the type found on the underside of sofas and chairs. The legs included are my least favorite design feature of the bed, the stain is inconsistent and the shape is wrong for mid-century, but replacements are easy to find. The four legs are 6 inches tall, and use 3/8 inch hanger bolts to secure into the head and footboards. Set-up of the bed was very simple and straight forward. I am a woman and was able to complete assembly by myself in 25 minutes, minus the slats. Slat assembly doesn't seem difficult, just repetitive, and may have added another 30 minutes. (I chose not to use slats in favor of using the low profile slatted base that accompanies my heavy European mattress. I also incorporated a separate steel bed beam support system to accommodate the extra weight of 275lbs). Earlier reviews stated that it was possible to get the mattress to sit deeper into the frame by changing the direction of the "L" brackets (presumably the support mounted on the side rails) this is no longer possible. The support bolted to the side rails is now a 1 inch x 1.75 inch piece of pine, allowing for 2 inches of mattress to sit inside the frame. The headboard with legs attached measures 38 inches tall, 68 inches wide and 4 inches deep. The footboard with legs measures 12 inches tall, 68 inches wide and 4 inches deep. Upholstered side rails are 81 inches long, 6 inches tall and 4 inches wide. Ground clearance is 6 inches. Interior dimensions of the frame are 81 inches long, 61 inches wide leaving plenty of room to tuck in sheets and a thick duvet. My only complaints - Linen fabric not used on back of headboard, stain & style of legs and lack of adjustable depth steel support rails. I would have paid a little more to get these features. Overall, both my husband and I are happy with the quality and savings.
This is a gorgeous modern white leather bed, and fits in with many styles. I purchased it together with the stainless steel modern bench, and the 11 inch comfort dreams mattress. They all arrived the same day! The bed itself arrived in good condition, however the boxes were a mess. The instructions were crumpled in a ball at the bottom as well. Some of the feedback stated that the holes were not drilled and yes, this is true. However, I put this bed together with the help of two teenagers in under one hour using a simple screwdriver and the Allen wrench. The slats are genius! The only criticism I have is that the feet have more screw holes than what was provided. You have to decide which are important for the stability and go from there. When finished and made with the sheets, the room looked like a high end boutique hotel.
I needed a new bed frame for my guest room and I didn't want to spend too much money. This bed was easy to assemble and it looks great! The posts are real wood and the steel headboard/footboard has a rough matte finish. I would recommend this bed to anyone!
