This bed is one word "AWESOME"! I spent weeks combing through websites and visiting show rooms for just the right look. I wanted something modern, contemporary and above all gorgeous. This bed is magnificent. The structure is heavy and solid I am sure it will hold up for many many many years. The bed didn't take to long to put together but then again my husband LOVES to put things together and had it done in just an hour or two. You definitely need 2 people or even a possible 3rd person to help hold it up in certain spots as its very very very heavy. Overall after everything I have seen online and in stores nothing compares to the beauty and elegance of this bed. The corners are very sharp so you have to be careful not to stub your toe but once you get past this there is nothing but adoration left. This bed coupled with the serta memory foam mattress I purchased on overstock was a great combination. I have been sleeping like a baby ever since!
