i had found a perfect bed for my son and waited for it to come in stock somewhere else. i then found this bed on overstock and it was very similar. after ordering it and receiving it so quickly we now have a bed for him to sleep in. the finish is nothing like the name. its black and shiny. there isnt anything matte about it. the color golden isnt even close. get this if you are looking or black and shiny. we were not but are keeping the bed anyway. its a good bed for his small room. because i ordered the queen, there isnt much room for much else in the way of furniture so its good that the bed is streamlined and not bulky. its neither feminine or masculine so its good for both guys and girls. it came in one week. assembly was easy. now we just wait for the mattress and boxspring to be shipped.
