I bought this bed at the recommendation of the "helper" on Overstock.com. It's okay, but nothing special. It does help me achieve a modern look, but I've bought metal beds before, and the value simply wasn't there. It was a bit overpriced. Love the foam mattress though, and really like the look the mattress and platform bed helped me create. If you cannot find a platform bed, this one is okay. It's attractive and easy to assemble.
