Not a bed I would have gone for usually. Was for a guest bedroom. but is definitely a talking point. Relatively easy to put together once you have figured out which part is what. Most have a sticker, but yes the stickers do come off while unwrapping. Also definitely a two man job and a bit of brute strength towards the end. otherwise I thought it was quite simple. not much support at the base just three bars across the bed. so I would think event with a regular mattress and given the size and distance between the support bars you might find start to subside in places. I ended up getting a box spring with a memory foam mattress The bed frame is extremely light weight, so is prone to sliding around quite easily on my hardwood floors.
