ITEM#: 20543783

With a luxuriously fabric-covered headboard that adds an elegant touch to the solid wood frame, the Forshaga bed will be a standout piece in any bedroom. With high-quality hardwoods and fabric headboards, this platform bed blends perfectly with mid-century bedroom suites. Infusing unique designs with superior craftsmanship, the bed ensures that you will receive the finest quality as each item is handmade and inspected. Constructed of eco-friendly solid rubberwood in dark walnut finishing, the Forshaga is upholstered in textured light grey or grey fabric with modern grid-tufting and cushioning while the solid wood frame has smooth lines punctuated by sharp cornered joinery. To ensure a comfortable night's sleep, the traditional slats of the base have been closely spaced to provide firm support that suits standard size mattresses. Made in Malaysia, the bed requires assembly.

  • All looks unfortunately

    Option: Grey - King

    Initially I was so happy with this piece. It was exactly what I was looking for, the cloth material of the back & the wooden frame looked nice and I was thrilled. Less than 3 months later I'm considering throwing it away ALREADY. The bed has come apart in the middle of the night 3x now. We have a king size, and we were only provided with 2 wooden legs/pegs under the bed to support the middle of the bed & to keep the platform off the ground. The construction of the bed & quality of those pegs is awful: normal wear won't keep them on & up. I'm currently working with Overstock on replacing those parts in the hopes it's not a total throw-away but to be frank, I think it's a flaw in the construction. Unfortunately, as some reviews have already said, the quality is simply not there.

    Good value (I bought it on sale). Fairly easy to assemble. Looks good in the dark gray upholstery. I would have preferred the legs to be a couple of inches shorter. It seems very high off the floor, almost as if you've got a box spring. Be careful when you move it, especially on carpet, as the middle support legs that are underneath the mattress aren't especially sturdy and could catch and crack.

    This item is very bad quality. It is not solid enough perhaps for a King bed. We will have to destroy as the cost to return is too high

    Love this bed! The style is so fantastic and the overall quality feels super solid. We did end up making a whole new middle support system, though, based on other reviews and seeing ourselves how weak the original was (hence the lower review). We purchased a 89x19mm 2.4m premium pine piece of lumber and three 15 1/4” Parsons table legs from Lowe’s then cut all to necessary size. Secured the lumber to the supports with the included hardware, and then attached the three legs using two countersunk screws per leg. It was a pretty quick and inexpensive fix, and the whole bed feels SUPER solid now. I highly recommend doing this if you purchase a King.

    We LOVE this bed. I searched everywhere for a mid-century modern inspired bed and this one fit the bill perfectly! It took my husband and I 45 minutes to put together, but we have lots of experience with these building furniture. I really love that the long legs make our king bed look less bulky and allow us to store things underneath it. The headboard is definitely firm, but it doesn't bother us. We went with the dark gray fabric and it looks just like the photo. With our new memory foam mattress we are sleeping like teenagers (because, let's be real, babies don't sleep very well)!

    Beautiful Nd sturdy this platform bed is well made, perfect for my teen daughter's room. A big yes! Great addition...full size only queen will not fit,on platform.

  • Shipment Missing Hardware
    Verified Purchase
    Option: Grey - Queen

    We just opened our boxes to put together and while the quality looks good, our box had loose hardware. When we went to put it together, we were missing around 30 screws and bolts. Not happy, to say the least. The mail delivery service seemed to have been rough with our packaging too and there was a big hole in the main box with the loose hardware. Wondering why a company would package this way! We already broke down our old bed frame so I'm not looking forward to being 6 months pregnant sleeping on a mattress on the floor tonight. Buyer beware!

    Ok.. this bed is pretty, but frightening to sleep on. I've had this bed for a couple months and, as the other negative reviewers have said, the center support is a joke, the two leg-posts meant to prop the bed up in the middle broke off within weeks (and never supported properly before either, but just twisted themselves back and forth until the nails bore themselves out of their holes, and they never really supported the fragile center board which runs from the headboard to the footboard anyway) So, the bed sags in the middle, and the slats will probably snap sooner or later too. I'l either need to frankenstein other parts to reinforce the center base/slats to give it some support or just replace the bed. I read the negative reviews but decided I'd deal with it since I was so in love with the look of the bed - I'm surprised to see positive reviews on this because it really is a pice of junk, when it comes to functionality. I think the designer who built the frame put some care and thought into the aesthetics and somewhere between then and production there was no thought given to this actually needing to sustain a person's bodyweight (I'm 150 pounds, if you're curious).

  • This bed is constructed of toothpicks and glue:

    Definitely not built to hold a king mattress and the owners for much longer than a few weeks. As we assembled the bed we noticed the supports were lacking in girth and the connections that were instructed to be made were done on such thin members of wood that we just doubted its structural integrity from day one. The bed snapped and collapsed after two months. Much Much too cheaply constructed to hold anything beyond a double bed and 1 sleeper.

    The order showed up in three separate orders, on three different days. Main supporting posts were missing, assembly screws were missing, had to create our own, and main parts were broken had to glue them back together to make it work.

    We love this bed! The wood is a pretty color, it was easy construction, and looks great! We didn't use the slats because we have a different structure underneath, but the frame is great.

    If you are expecting to buy just one bed to use for many years this won't be it. The bed is attractive and appropriately priced but the quality is marginal. The bed is on only four thin legs with two flimsy pegs at the center for stability. Also when you assemble the bed, the instructions fail to explain which way you need to orient the board at the head of the bed which holds up the slats, so when you get to that part remember that the wood notch goes floorside away from the headboard.

    This bed is so badly constructed - as other customers have said there is one little peg leg support under the middle of the frame that gives out every other day. There is no cross bracing so it slides out of place and the frame sinks. It’s also a little noisy. Looks good but cheap... bummed I purchased this

  • Q:

    "Hello, How much weight will this hold?"

    • A:

      The slats+center support this bed comes with are a joke and will barely support the weight of a mattress. I'm 150 lbs and it dips in the center, and will probably break soon.

  • Q:

    "How much space between side rail and floor? How many inches of storage space under bed?"

    • A:

      About 10 inches. We have storage bags under the bed and they clear easily even when full.
