(1) It isn't real velvet. It is a white microfiber. Very soft and nice for the price. (2) If you go with the white bed, I recommend you spray paint white the two black metal pieces that go behind the headboard and the black feet before assembly. Those black pieces would really stick out and look odd against a white bed. (3) I saw a review that said you need a LOW PROFILE box spring, not a regular one. So glad I followed that advice! The low profile box spring is exactly what is needed so that you don't see the box spring above the padded sides. Looks great with low profile box spring. My daughter loves her bed!
I needed to use the guest room in my new home as the "library" as well. The color scheme in there is black and white, so I wanted black bookcases that would work with the furniture I already had...and would hold plenty of books. Bought two of the and they look fabulous.
It arrived quickly in perfect shape. I put it together by myself so it did take a couple hours to put together, but the instructions were very easy to follow. Everything I needed was there. There was only one drawer front which had been put together incorrectly. After examining this piece, I removed the 2 small screws that were holding the pieces of wood together, realigned the holes for the handles and replaced the screws I removed. Thank goodness the 2 pieces of wood were not glued together. Everything fit together perfectly and the piece looks just like the picture online. Love this piece of furniture and it looks great in the guest bedroom.
