Read the reviews prior to this one............they are accurate. The look of this headboard is nice. It is tall and provides the room entry impact that was desired. 1. The problem with the headboard is that it the headboard portion of a platform bed. This headboard was not designed to be used independently of the other pieces of the platform bed. * So if you have a standard bed that uses a mattress and box spring, there will be some functional issues. 1. It has the extra inches on both side of the mattresses because this is the space needed for the platform frame. 2. The black portion that is designed to attached to the bedframe can be seen on the side. This really should have been the same color as the rest of the headboard. 3. If you are using this with a standard bed with box spring and mattress, due to the black portion supporting the fabric covered portion being thinner, the mattress and the box spring will not be even. This could really be a great piece it was redesigned to truly be just an independent headboard versus selling the headboard separately from the frame of a platform bed. The color is really nice and can support and color spectrum, but I purchased it to allow flexibility within the taupes.
I was delighted when I pulled this out of the box. It's a good thickness, a nice color, and all of the upholstery tacks were straight and expertly applied. It's really sharp! The only thing I wasn't happy with is that some of the padding on the top had been squished from shipping. I am going to try an iron and a damp towel to see if that will puff it up again. The headboard was easy to assemble after I found the instructions in the box. The instructions even come with a fabric swatch to make shopping easier. They were in the box vs being with the pieces and the bolts - but once I found the instructions, it was a piece of cake to assemble. The holes in the legs are too low for a higher bed frame. I can fit a low laundry basket under my bed, so I definitely have a frame that's a little higher. But in order to use the holes as is, you'd have to have a very low frame. I fixed this by putting two, 2x6 slabs of pine underneath the legs - which gave an extra 4 inches of height. Who is complaining about that?? If you don't have a garage full of scrap wood like me, then this could be irritating. I chose to use 2x6 so the legs wouldn't slide off as easily. You'll need to go buy washers, nuts and screws. Buy 2" long, 1/4" diameter hex head bolts. Buy a smaller washer for the frame side, and a large washer for the headboard side. I also used a lock washer before the nut to keep it all tight. You'll need the large washers on the headboard/nut side, because the holes in the legs are very big. Small washers get sucked inside and aren't worthwhile (see pics). 2" bolts will keep the end from extending too far towards the wall. if you're putting your bed against the wall, you don't want to scratch it up. Overall, a GREAT buy! I used my O Club rewards to pay for about half of the cost. What a deal!!! Love the free shipping to my door (hassle free), and it came pretty quickly, too! I highly recommend this headboard. Great value, quality product!!!!
I purchased this headboard for an extra room. While it is not a Ethan Allen quality it certainly is nice for the price. The fabric is not denim, it is in the style (color) of denim. Very happy with this purchase.
