Not exactly what it seems
 from Southern California,  Nov 2, 2011

We love the way it looks in our home but it wasn't exactly the super easy sturdy frame we expected from reading the other reviews. So here's a few things you should keep in mind if you're considering purchasing: It's lighter in color then the photo by quite a bit. It's more of a dark steel color then black steel. Not a bid deal as I think I prefer the ligher color but if you buy this expecting black you;re going to be disappointed. It's not particularly easy to assemble. In fact, it's kinda a pain. My previous all steel bed had a total of 8 bolts holding the headboard, side rails, footboard and sturdy wooden cross slat foundation. This one has a ton of bolts. Thankfully, unless i want to break it ALL the way down to move it, I should be able to get away with only take the headboard and footboard off. Speaking of cross slats, this has a very poor bed foundation. It's a bunch of hollow rectangular steel cross members with a center support that doesn't run the entire height of the bed. There are also not enough of them to properly support a 100% foam mattress. If you're using an traditional single sided inner spring with or without a box foundation it will probably be fine. I had to build additional support into the frame to support our king sized latex mattress. And ideally, we should probably consider using a bunkie board over top of that.
