First off let me say I LOVE this bed. The wood is a beautiful dark color, a good weight and it looks great all put together. My one complaint was the slat assembly - the first time I got on the bed the main support beam snapped clean in two! After reassuring myslel that I did not in fact need crash diet, I called Overstock for a replacement part, only to be told that I should have known it was defective when I arrived. Right. Silly me. Overall though, even with the rigged up support, this is one of the most comfortable beds I have had and would definitely recommend it.
