I love the look and sturdiness of this bed. In the picture it looks very dark, and it is, but there's a definite browness to it. You won't mistake it for black. The dark brown material covers the headboard where it's above the platform, the sides, and the footboard outside, top, and a bit inside. The rest of the surfaces, expected to not be visible, are black cloth. The sleek elegant curve of the headboard is exactly as pictured, which I really like. The height is low, just perfect. I am so happy I waited to receive the bed before looking around for a new mattress. The inner mattress space is exactly 76.0x43.0 inches, and sits about 4.5 inches deep in the sideboards. The typical 75 inch long, 38-39 inch wide twin mattresses are definitely a misfit. For now I put an old regular twin mattress inside, and it looks horrible. Like a bed inside a bed. Slats are visible on all sides. So, if you like and buy this bed, prepare to order a custom-size mattress. Overstock won't be useful for that. I found a local store that would do custom sizes, but after all my searching I ended up ordering online.
I got this bed for my grand daughter to use when she stays over. She helped pick it out online. I assembled it myself in less than 30 minutes. The only problem was most of the plastic caps for the frame were damaged. But they were easy to find at True Value and fit perfectly.
I bought this bed for my 2 kids because I wanted to upgrade them to a twin mattress but also save space. I ordered mine in white, it was very easy to assemble. There is A LOT of pieces /poles but dont be alarmed it all comes together easily and quickly. I was able to fit an 11 inch memory foam mattress for the trundle. It is rather tight spacing if you do choose that thick of a mattress, I have the trundle mattress only dressed with a thin fitted sheet. So far so good!!!
I love the quality the color and the texture of this bed. It's not a smooth finish some reviewers said they didn't like it but I do. My adult son put it together in about an hour it wasn't hard, one screw did not fit on the backboard right hand side I believe other reviewers stated the same thing that they had a problem with the screw. it doesn't affect the intergrity of the bed but I will replace the screw with a different size perhaps a little smaller but other than that it's very sturdy looks very nice and I love it! I put a 12-inch mattress on the top memory foam which I got from Overstock and an 8-inch mattress on the trundle I wouldn't go any higher than 9 inches for the trundle. I absolutely love this bed!
