I don't know how but I must've happened to check at the perfect time, I got this bed for ***.** with free delivery. I bought it on Sunday morning at 2am and it was delivered Thursday on that same week. I've been hawking this bed since May of 2014. Extremely easy to build, and surprisingly light weight compared to other beds. It came in two pieces, 1) headboard and 2nd) the frame legs and planks. Its probably bed if you have a low profile innerspring versus a foam/memory foam. For whatever reason the planks don't work so well with the foam, I had a 9in mattress with a 3in gel/foam topper. It was wayy too tall and had like 8in of the headboard showing, didn't look too good, so I went to ikea and got a low profile firm mattress and combined with the 3in gel/foam it was perfect. Another suggestion is to either apply a varnish or polyurethane to the raw planks and exposed raw wood pieces on the frame. Only because I live in NYC and Bedbugs do not discriminate by any means. The fabric linen covering is a slight bit darker than in the picture, well...let me rephrase, the picture has a blue-grey hue, its actually more of a standard grey linen. Oh and definitely purchase those legs caps that allow it to slide easier. Because you have the four corners with legs but then you have a center beam with three mini legs that run down the center of the bed frame. It makes it a bit easier to move when needed and it wont snap the mini feet that run down the center. Aside from that the bed it awesome !!
Overall a beautiful piece of furniture! My bed was slightly damaged during shipping; the wood was chipped at the foot of the bed. Workmanship is nice, but there were some very small places were you can see the raw wood (it wasn't painted/varnished properly in those areas). This small blemish is behind the headboard though, so it's not something that's visible once you set it up. Putting the bed together was not difficult at all. It took my husband about an hour to put it together (if that!) The end product is absolutely beautiful and definitely worth the money. I don't know what it is about a platform bed, but it made us feel like we had a new mattress! We slept really well in it~ we definitely recommend this product!
The pictures don't do the beautiful wood justice. The wood is darker - a blend of a medium and dark brown grain. The natural look is beautiful - no glossy shine of a varnish, but definitely 'finished' feel to it. The assembly was as expected, no directions needed. The hardware was partially in place, so we just had to connect each piece, then put the slats in place. Very sold feel - no movement to the frame. The rustic tones have completely changed the feel of the room.
