I purchased this bed in king size and based on other reviews added additional support for the mattress I suggest the same for the queen. It was easy to put together and looks great.Goes with almost any type of furniture. It has a romantic feel to it. Ours came in a dark bronze color. Based on other reviews, I wasn't sure what color to expect, but I was happy with it. The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is because it does need extra support and how low to the floor the side rails come down. It only gives you about 4 to 5 inches. Other than that, I don't think you can get a better bed for the money that looks so good. Very happy with our purchase!!
