love this frame! we got the mahogany....color is the same as pictured. very solid bed...truly solid wood. very easy to assemble...all the hardware is provided, you just need a screwdriver. we ordered a memory foam mattress as well (which is also fabulous) and this platform frame is perfect for it! my 16 month old son loves it since it's low to the ground and easy for him to crawl on to!!! haha! great price in comparison to any other solid wood king bed frame. love it!
