  • Looks good but poorly designed
    Verified Purchase

    Like other reviewers stated, I had to make some additional supports for the ends of middle slat section that runs from the headboard to the foot of the bed (you will have to cut a few blocks of wood and screw them in). A corner of the headboard was damaged in shipping - I assume due to the heavy weight - and I had to repair it because I didn't take the time to inspect it when it arrived (my bad). Holds a 10" thick foam mattress just fine and at a comfortable low height. It does look good when it's all together and is not sagging due to my additional supports.

  • Love the bed, not the assembly
    Verified Purchase

    This bed is gorgeous! But the assembly of the slats was difficult. There was no guide as to where to drill the slats, so we ended up having no room for the last one. We also had difficulty with other aspects of the assembly. So just beware that the instructions are not very clear!

  • Sturdy and Looks Great! Could go 4.5 stars
    Verified Purchase

    This is a very nice looking and sturdy bed frame. Not too bad to put together for one person; took me about an hour to hour and a half. My only issue was with shipping; got lost at UPS and their customer service was not great at resolving and got a little bit of run around at Overstock as well. Finally got it all together and very happy.

  • Beautiful Bed, some small issues
    Verified Purchase

    The bed arrived very fast, and I'm proud to say I set it up all by myself. The headboard had a flaw, probably from shipping, but I decided not to stir the pot as the piece is so huge, and I didn't want to deal with shipping it back. Plus the pillows cover it. I decided to screw in the support bars based on previous reviews. With a box spring/platform and a memory foam mattress the bed feels sturdy and solid. I did have an issue with the large bolts attaching the sidebar to the headboard coming loose. I had to take the mattresses off and reattach the side bar. Time will tell if that was an isolated incident. Overall I am very happy with this piece.

  • Better in person!
    Verified Purchase

    I was a little hesitant to buy this bed. I wasn't sure I loved it from the images, but it was better than alternatives- and I looked at a lot of beds. Once it arrived I was thrilled at the in-person color, finish, and overall quality! The color is dark, but still warm, and the finish is smoother than I thought the image portrayed. It's heavy duty and very sturdy once put together, which was exceedingly easy. The slats are the regular cheap wood that you find on any platform bed, but there are two support rows, and plenty of cross slats, and the legs underneath are stained so they still look good even though you can see them slightly. This is the third platform bed I have owned in my life, and by far my favorite yet! It is brand new, so I will update after using it a while if anything comes up to make it seem like less than 5 stars.

  • looks great!
    Verified Purchase

    So I saw the reviews that it needed more support. So my husband and I brought the support legs and went to home depot, bought a pice of wood, the employee cut it the wood the same size as the support legs. Then we added more support legs down the middle and the 1 extra on each side. it cost us $6 and the bed is so sturdy, I love it! I only gave it 4 stars for "inconvenience" but other then that we love it so far.

  • Good for the price
    Verified Purchase

    Its a very lovely looking bed for the price. Sturdy overall and just very pretty. The wood isn't the best quality which is why 4 stars instead of 5. The bed looks better than the dresser, but its essentially pressed strips of wood and some of them have odd jagged edges in the finish. Its still pretty, but it doesn't compare to some of the designer stores.

  • Majestuous bed
    Verified Purchase

    One of the best piece of furniture we bought on Overstock. It's massive wood, strong brown colour and nicely designed. Careful though: you need to make holes by yourself, it's not all ready to assemble. But totally worth the price.

  • Beautiful, high quality, affordable
    Verified Purchase

    I spent ages looking for a decently priced king bed made of real hardwoods, and this bed did not disappoint! Others recommended using a box spring for extra sturdiness; the boards and center legs that are supposed to support a mattress do seem a bit flimsy, so I'm glad I ordered a box spring. However, it does make the bed quite high (which my husband and I don't mind). If you want to keep your mattress closer to the ground, I suggest getting a low-profile box spring or adding extra support under the mattress. Have been using the bed for months and couldn't be happier! Looks great, feels solid, and was easy to assemble.

  • Great Bed - exceeded expectations.
    Verified Purchase

    This bed is solid, real wood! The finish is beautiful!! Relatively easy to put together - we used a drill for the screws - and it feels very sturdy and secure.

  • Sucks...
    Verified Purchase

    This bed just straight up sucks. There are only two feet beside the standard four that are meant to hold the weight in the middle. We got a king, combined, me and my other half only weight about 285 lbs and yet those center feet completely broke within a month! Mind you, we weren't in any way hard on the bed. Because of the horrible slope from the legs breaking, we had to completely reinforce the bed, thankfully my boyfriend is a general contractor or I would have thrown this damn bed in the trash! I would get rid of this thing if it hadn't cost so much.

  • It might be wood but it's not solid! Fell apart!
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this based on the reviews and it is as beautiful as described! It really is wood, and the headboard was so heavy I could barely drag it in from the porch where it was delivered. I had to get help taking it upstairs. Very easy to put together. Plenty of cross pieces (slats), Great buy, especially for the money! UPDATE 5/16/16 I wrote original review days after I received the bed, before it was really used. Well, after 8 months of use (by a single woman), I see that the quality is not what if first appeared. The bed is not made of "solid" wood, which is really important in areas where it is bolted together. The footboard is framed in wood with a thin "skin" of wood covering it; and I think the headboard is the same. A month ago the footboard started coming apart and the screws came out. Luckily my contractor was on site and he glued and screwed it back together. Now tonight the frame totally broke away from the headboard - the bolts pulled right out. It's just too wobbly and insecure, which puts stress on all the places it is all bolted together. If you try to move the bed at all, it falls apart. I would not recommend - it is attractive looking but not worth is since it is definitely NOT solid and sturdy.

  • Exactly what I was looking for
    Verified Purchase

    This bed is sturdy and low profile. Although it does include slabs we added plywood on top because the bed is too low to fit a boxspring as well without covering the headboard. We currently have a 13" mattress and looks great, I have no complaints. The shipping was great, I am definitely shopping at overstock again, I love their coupons so make sure to subscribe to their email and rewards

  • Great Solid Wood Mid-Century Bed
    Verified Purchase

    My wife and I purchased this bed frame to go along with a new 14-inch King Slumber Solutions Memory Foam Mattress that we also purchased through Overstock and it is really stylish! We read the majority of the reviews before purchasing, to see what we were getting into and nothing in them scared us away or wasn't something that we had already planned to handle. Particularly with the support of the bed. The bed arrived in 7 business days and came in 4 separate boxes, however, we had it set up in under 30 minutes. It comes with roughly 12-14 slates to support the bed and these appear to be peoples biggest qualms about the quality of this bed. However, having read the reviews, we were prepared to deal with them. First, as your are spacing the support slats, it is going to appear like you have too many. What I would recommend, and what my wife and I did, is space them according to weight. For example, the majority of the weight from the bed and yourself will be from the middle moving towards the headboard, i.e. your waist to head. So space the slats to where you end up with more supporting that section of bed. Obviously, on the average person, your legs weigh less than your upper body, so fewer support slats are needed towards the bottom of the bed. Now, that is not to say, don't put any. Here is how it worked for us, we had 14 support slats with the King Size frame. So I first spaced the slats 5 - 6 inches apart, moving from the foot of the bed to the headboard. This landed me with 2 extra slats, so I placed that additional support at the head of the bed. Next, we purchased two twin size pieces of 1/2 inch particle board from Home Depot for just under $30 and placed these on the support slates to form a solid base for the bed. This provides additional support by giving the bed a solid uniform base on which to displace yours and the bed's weight. It also helps a memory foam bed retain its form by preventing the memory foam from "muffin topping" between the support slats. Sure it is a little extra cash and time to measure for the particle board, but I know it will be worth it in the long run. All in all, we are loving the design and look of this bed. It is solid wood, with a beautiful finish. Initially, it looks like it is going to sit really low, especially with a memory foam bed minus the box spring, but even without a box spring, it is only a few inches lower than traditional spring mattress/box spring combo. I would highly recommend this product for anyone looking for a mid-century modern style without paying the $1500-$3000 for a similar solid wood frame bed from your big box furniture store. Last, as with everything my wife and I have bought from Overstock, read the reviews! They will save you a bundle in time and money! Look at the good with the bad and make your decision then. Reading the reviews allowed us to move forward with purchasing the bed and doing a little DIY, not to MAKE the bed sturdy, it already is, but to do something that will ensure it lasts far beyond what is expected. Also, go out around your local city or town and look at comparisons to get a good idea of what you want and if you want to forgo any savings to be able to get something you can see, feel and walk out the door with.

  • Nice bed
    Verified Purchase

    Wanted a bigger bed so went with the king. Bought the memory foam matress (14") with it and decided not to go with any box spring. So far that's working just fine. Bed looks nice and doesn't take over my room. I thought it would be a little higher off the ground for storage but it's not big enough to fit a thin tote under. Tennis balls and other dog toys easily find their way under though. Assembly was a breeze. I held stuff while my husband did all the tightening. The hardest part was dragging all the huge boxes in from the front door where the UPS guy left them. The bed was up and ready for the mattress in about 15 minutes. I love the color. I would recommend this bed to family and friends interested in a similar product.

  • Solid
    Verified Purchase

    It's a good solid bed, but if you are even a tad clumsy, or have a tight room beware of your shins. I'm sporting two bruises from whacking myself on the end corners from making the bed.

  • Beautiful Bed
    Verified Purchase

    I debated on buying this bed because the legs looked too small for me. But I went ahead and did it and couldn't be happier! It's a beautiful wood bed with a wonderful tobacco color. It was very easy to put together. WARNING- it's very heavy and you will need two people to put it together. My husband and I did it in about 20 minutes. My ONLY complaint is that the slats don't have pre drilled holes and the end slats have hardly any support. We fixed this by buying a foundation from Amazon. Otherwise beautiful piece of furniture! I ended up ordering both dressers too!

  • Vilas Platform King Size Mid-century Style Bed
    Verified Purchase

    The bed looks nice and is heavy/solid. A couple of issues (as others have mentioned). One is that there is not enough support to hold the bed up. It cracked on the bottom when my husband sat on the edge. We had to go to buy additional pieces of wood to go across the bottom and we added 6 additional legs for extra support. Also, there was a chunk of wood missing from the headboard. It would be too much of a pain to try and send back, or I would have.

  • Cheap, flimsily and smelly
    Verified Purchase

    The bed is terribly smelly like a cheap varnish. The construction is terrible! We purchased the dresser as well in this model and the terrible construction is consistent. The price you pay just covers the large shipping weight so don't think you're getting a decent product for the price. We will never buy from overstock again as this is three times in a row with the same results. Fake reviews, terrible products and customer service to match.
