Delivery: Delivery was fast, 1 week to San Diego. Delivery staff were on time, friendly, professional and efficient. The Bed: The fabric is not Linen (which is, by definition, made of natural fibers). It is a nylon/plastic/poly mix of something that clearly melted where holes were drilled into fabric. The melted part is not visible and will prevent fraying, so that's fine with me. My main beef with this bed is that two of the pre-drilled holes on the left side of the headboard were off by 2 inches. I was making great time putting the thing together on my own until I realized I'd have to break out the electric tools. Good thing I'm handy with a drill and staple gun! I measured where the holes were on the right side and matched the locations on the left, secured the fabric around the new drill locations with staple gun and drilled away! Other than that hiccup, the bed was relatively painless to put together and I'd imagine it would've taken less than an hour if all the holes were in the right places. The dark grey color is acquired by using almost black threads (majority) and some white threads woven together. The look you get is 'dark grey' but none of the materials used to make this bed actually look grey. This is all the information I'd have liked to know before I purchased this bed. I'm keeping the bed because it would be a huge hassle and inconvenience to try to return it, then get another bed, wait for delivery and hope it comes with pre-drilled in the right places. pros: - it does look good once it's set up - it seems very sturdy for a bed at this price point - quick shipping - would've been easy to set up, if properly prepped cons: - assembly was more difficult than expected due to pre-drilled holes being misplaced - received extra bolts and washers... which makes me sorry for the person who is probably missing them in their delivery. - fabric is not made of natural fiber
Very nice and heavy, but I soooo wish I had chosen a soft mattress. This mattress was so hard that it barely gives at all when you lie on it. I subsequently ordered a 2 inch topper with a fiber mattress pad for it, which made it much better. Nice medium quality velvet type cover on top and sides, poly type fabric on the bottom. I put it on a platform bed and definitely had to add a rug pad underneath to keep it from slipping around.
