We purchased this bed several months ago so I feel comfortable in making a recommendation. It's a lovely, rich dark wood with a simple design. I was looking for a complete bedframe (not just a headboard) with a low footboard because our guestroom is small. This bed has worked out nicely in that regard. We've also been pleased with the workmanship. A couple of the slats that came with the bed had "knot holes" and my husband replaced those with different slats. Otherwise, this bedframe has turned out to be the perfect choice for us.
