  • Wood platform bed
    Verified Purchase

    I have always liked the idea of a low-slung simple platform bed, and this - especially for the price range - looked to fit the bill exactly. :) My biggest concern was whether it would jostle around, and that was completely allayed the first time I flopped on my new (quite heavy) mattress; the bed felt solid as rock, not going anywhere, no wobbles at all. And the legs are such a lovely glossy wood finish, and were heavy enough in the hand that I felt assured of their quality. I was particularly impressed with the holes for the screws, which were all threaded with metal instead of just boring into the material and thus unlikely to come apart well. I feel happily confident I will be able to move this and use it for many years to come! I do want to offer one note: the slats for the platform were not uniformly cut, in the package I received, nor was their weight consistent. None of it was balsa, by any means, but that certainly was the cheaper area of the construction - not surprisingly, since it's the invisible part. The issue was that there are only four that actually screw into both side panels, and two of them were slightly too short to reach the pre-bored hole in the side panel of the bed. (The rest either fix to the center support beam or just rest across that and the side panels - plenty of them are secured for the bed to be solid; I'm not worried at all.) However, the corner junctions were designed with quite pleasingly flexible sliding bolts, so you can actually loosen the corners if needed to pull the side panel in the half centimeter I needed, and then tighten the corner again quite solidly without any apparent warping of the wood. I was really pleased that they designed it with a margin for error - most things I've assembled either work or you're just out of luck, and there isn't flexibility. The center legs were also an inch or two too short for mine - they had extendable screw legs with little feet - again, good design - I just didn't want to hazard extending those too far if they were going to be a primary support from my bed, so I found some books and magazines I hated and stuffed them under the legs, and extended the screws til it was all nestled nicely. So, all in all, go for it! It's a gorgeous solid wood bed for a ridiculously good price. Well worth a couple potential shenanigans to get it to work, and the design does have the flexibility to cope with the shenanigans.

  • A nice start
    Verified Purchase

    I'd just been looking for a "quick fix" sort of deal since I had to get a new bed pretty quick and was going from a double to a Cali King. The frame is very sturdy though, doesn't wobble and I don't use a box spring but I don't notice any sagging areas in the bed or feel the planks. Only reason I'd want to get a new frame later on is if I wanted a different design.

  • great bed for the price
    Verified Purchase

    The bed was easily assembled. I got it completed one afternoon before my husband came home from work :) He was impressed. Of course, I didn't let on as to how simple it was. Anyway, the bed is great. The price was perfect. The money we saved on the price of the bed allowed us to spend more on a high quality pillowtop mattress!!!

  • Exactly what I expected
    Verified Purchase

    The bed is exactly what I expected. It looks the same as in the picture. My husband said it was really easy to put it together. If you want a high bed, though, this is not the one for you. It's pretty low without a box spring (as shown in the picture). Otherwise, great value and perfect for what we needed!

  • Love it!
    Verified Purchase

    This is better than it looks on the website. It is exactly what I wanted. The only problem I had was that only 2 of the 3 boxes arrived and I had to wait another day for the 3rd box due to some "billing problem".

  • Great bed especially for the price
    Verified Purchase

    The bed was very easy to assemble. Everything lined up great and there was no need to use power tools. It's stable and the center support can adjust higher or lower as needed. I think it's a great, simple bed.

  • Great!!!
    Verified Purchase

    Easy to set up. Exactly what I had in mind when I ordered it. I thought the bed would be to low to the floor, but the frame sits about 9-11 inches off of the floor. Then you add the mattress and it sits nice off of the floor. Very easy to put together. The only thing with the assembly was that some of the support boards sit on the frame. I went and drilled them in for more support. For the price this was a great buy for me!

  • Great bed
    Verified Purchase

    Great value. If you are looking for a simple and sturdy bed that goes well with similarly colored furniture, this is probably one of the best deals around. Feels very solid. Only issue is if you move it once it is assembled the middle legs get out of place very easily, but is easy to line them up again once you are done moving it. Once the bed is positioned correctly it is very well supported. Some other reviews suggest there are not enough screws. I thought this at first as well, but read the directions carefully and there are enough. It is very easy to assemble compared to other furniture I have purchased on Overstock.

  • Good Sleep
    Verified Purchase

    This bed has been a dream. After purchasing a new mattress our bed was still not comfortable because the frame we had was terrible. Also we were able to get rid of our old box spring which gave it a much cleaner look. This was a great bed at a great price.

  • Great Bed Wished I would have oredered it sooner
    Verified Purchase

    This Bed is like a dream We ordered a metal bed from another site and it was the wrong size cheap construction and it cost $220.00 more than this one did. This bed is constructed really well I was actually surprised at how strong and sturdy and well constructed it was. This bed was easy to put together looks beautiful and honestly and I cannot believe what a great deal we got on it. We are so excited I keep walking back to the bedroom to look at the difference now that we have assembled it. I would highly recommend it. The other great thing about this bed is that it is a break down bed of sorts everything is screwed in tightly but it would be easy to break down if we moved and have all the pieces in one place. This is made of sturdy solid wood . For the price I thought it would be a little janky but it isn’t!

  • Great finish
    Verified Purchase

    Very simple and has a great finish that doesn't look cheap. Instruction is pretty straightforward and probably not necessary. It took about 70-80mins to set up by myself. An electric screwdriver would've helped a lot. Some wood screws to secure the planks will make the bed sturdier. The middle part is alright and they should've used another set of leg since it's a cal king bed. For normal use Im pretty sure it will hold up well. I wish they make one that is shorter in height and probably will look awesome if it's a couple inches shorter. 4.5stars definitely!

  • Cordovan California King-size Platform Bed
    Verified Purchase

    Same as marketed, great bed simple and beautiful when set up just like described. You will need to get extra wood screws we just secured the slat part (Center) with screws all down both sides and added a few in the middle. It is exactly what we expected and a great purchase for the price for sure. Was great match for our new memory foam bed! Definately recommend the product. Basic assembly as well.

  • man i love this platform bed!
    Verified Purchase

    such a great price, it's a crime! the wood finish is in great shape, sturdy definitely. this became crucial when i committed to buying a 14in memory foam mattress to place on / in it. it took me a while to wrap my head around the fact that i didn't need a set of box springs is one traditionally uses with a mattress. this jewel is inclusive of the box springs as the defining aspect of the platform itself. my 30yr chronic and very painful back and neck issues have been greatly relieved such that i have been able to reduce the use of my pain meds for these chronic conditions. i will never go back to a traditional frame/mattress/box springs again!

  • nice frame for the price
    Verified Purchase

    I was sceptical of a cali king bed frame for 245 dollars, but given the price of frames we'd seen, we bought one. It came relatively fast - about a week, I'd say, in three boxes. well packed, and was easy to set up. I think it took us about 45 minutes to set it up. The finish and quality of the wood finish was nice for the price. The only low-quality parts were the slats - they are made out of pretty junky wood, but since you can't see them, it doesn't really matter. Our previous bed frame was a Canadian made frame, and came with engineered (laminated wood) slats that were really nice. however, that frame was *** so, all in all, it was nicer than expected for a simple platform frame, without headboard. we also liked that the frame does not extend very far outisde the mattress (just the width of the wood, about 1.6 inches), so we don't walk into the frame at night. some platforms have a 4-5 inch wide "platform" of wood that extends out, which looks like a shin-smasher to me! also, the size was fine - the people that said it didn't fit their mattress don't know what a cali king is!

  • Excellent Sturdy Bed for the Price
    Verified Purchase

    I bought a new mattress for the master bedroom and was looking for an inexpensive bed frame for my old mattress to put into a guest room. I found this one on Overstock. After researching prices on the internet, Overstock had the best price on this bed. It took 4 days from the date I ordered it to the day it was delivered to my house. I put it together alone in about an hour and a half. It was very easy to put together with an electric screwdriver (from my toolbox) and an allen wrench (supplied with the bed package). It came with all of the hardware and screws needed along with a few extra screws and washers. It fit my California King mattress perfectly. It is very sturdy and does not wobble. I would guess that those people who left poor reviews claiming that it was not sturdy simply are not good with screwdrivers or building things. If you know how to use a phillips head and an allen wrench and you know how to screw bolts in tightly, then you will love this bed. A great deal for the price!

  • Very Satisfied
    Verified Purchase

    The item arrived when it was promised and was delivered without damage. It is obviously well-made and of good quality. Now that it is assembled, we are very pleased with it. The color matches my existing dark cherry headboard perfectly and the new frame makes it possible for me to discard the hated dust ruffle and iron frame of my previous bed. Thank you, Overstock!!

  • Great, but...
    Verified Purchase

    Let me start by saying this bed is awesome. It looks great and for the most part feels very sturdy. The outside legs and the frame itself are very solid. However, as others have indicated, the middle legs can be a bit flimsy. If the bed is rocked back and forth, those middle legs collapse. My current solution has been to simply put a stack of books under the bed as well. Other than that, awesome, good looking bed that is very affordable.

    I bought this platform bed for my daughter. We put it together in about half an hour with no problems. There was no creaking or settling when using the bed and it felt very solid and comfortable.
