It's beautiful! The 4 boxes were big - but we had a plan - set out the tools and unpacked each box with order. The end result --- wow - it looks like real leather for the most part. It doesn't have that plastic look so many other bi cast leather products show. We are super satisfied with our new king bed. This is our first king so...that is fun to get use to as well. When the delivery guys brought the bed into our room - they even commented on how unique and cool the storage was. They had never seen a bed like this - even asked where to buy :) -- and since all they do is deliver beds - they have seen their fair share of places to sleep. We are happy and proud to show it off. Husband says: it's nice - hydraulic works great - GREAT quality - smoking deal - stitching is nice.
