The bed is awesome. I have a box spring and a queen mattress on it and the height is great. It's sturdy and simple, just want I wanted. However, when it was shipped, there were not enough screws in the box for the frame. That was annoying- but fixable. The color was listed as espresso and I have espresso furniture in my bedroom. However this bed isn't exactly espresso, it has an obvious red-ish tint and isn't super dark. It doesn't matter when I have sheets covering the frame.
