This bed was easy to assemble and looks nice. However, it does *not* look like leather much at all. It has an artificial, opalescent sheen to the material. So if you're looking for something that actually looks like white leather, it might not be for you. I was unclear when I purchased it whether this bed required a box spring or whether it was meant to be a platform bed. I called Overstock to ask about this, and they said it does, in fact, require a box spring. If you want to use it as a platform bed, you will need to purchase plywood or some such material for the base. I bought a regular-height box spring for it (maybe 10-inches thick), and I think it looks oddly too high (not like the picture here). So I would recommend one of the new, thin box springs. The only other issue, is the 3 measly slats that come with the bed. They didn't look like they'd hold it up for too long, so I went to a lumber store and had two 1x3s cut to make two additional sturdier slats for under my box spring. Overall, I really like my new bed. I think it's very attractive, and the headboard is very comfortable to lean up against while reading. :-)
