We were amazed at the speed of delivery and everything arrived in great condition. We purchased not only the bed but the chest of drawers and two nightstands. It all fits in a smaller bedroom nicely and looks great. The bed assembles easily but at times you need two people. Only a couple tools are required and they even sent extra pieces of hardware. The wood is beautiful and quite sturdy. It only requires a mattress so you save the expense of a box spring. Overall we are quite pleased with everything.
