Very elegant bed. The assembly was a little challenging since the holes didn't line up - - it took my husband about half a day to put this bed together. BUT, it was all worth it. The bed looks elegant - - very classy. If you are planning to purchase this bed please note that you will NOT need a bed spring we learned this in a hard way. Overall, very happy with this purchase and strongly recommend this bed. Thank you Overstock for such a great selection.
