Features

This is an upholstered bed that comes in a transitional style. It has lavish, padded linen upholstery, and metal side rails for guaranteed stability and durability. The feet are made of plastic, and the bed includes thick, cushioned padding in the headboard.

The bed is compatible with bed risers, and the wrench and hex key required for assembly are included with delivery. You cannot use a bed frame instead of slats, but the bed can be used without its headboard. For regular use, you can use the bed with a memory foam mattress or an adjustable or air mattress. You can also use the bed with a box spring.

Moving or felt pads can be placed under the legs to prevent squeaking when the bed is placed on hardwood floors because the legs are movable. The frame of the bed itself is metal, and 24 slats are included. A box spring is not required, but the slats are. There is also one center support leg.

With easy assembly and a product warranty of 1 year, this bed with wing-back headboard design is made in China and can have its polyester/polyester blend and polyurethane upholstery cleaned with a damp cloth.

Pros

There are of course three different sizes from which to choose for this item, and all of them look very pretty. For people with a lower budget such as college students or single parents, this item is great when you want to have something that looks expensive in taste and looks a certain way but at a budget price. It generally arrives when it says it will, and most customers will be able to put it together with little or no help at all, especially because the tools required for assembly are included with delivery. The upholstering is wonderful, and with anything from an air mattress to a higher-end 12″ inch gel memory foam mattress makes for great comfort and convenience. It feels sturdy and secure and you won’t be able to get over how beautiful your room will look.

Some users mentioned that the directions were difficult to follow so just make sure to take your time and double check that you’re screwing everything the right way, otherwise it could be difficult to correct things afterwards. Overall, this bed provides great value, and is beautiful and easy to put together.

Cons

One couple bought this as their first bed in their new home, and it took them roughly three hours to put together. Although the instructions were pretty simple and easy to follow, they were a little concerned because some of the pieces did not look very sturdy, but they proved to be very promising once they got it all together.

The first thing they noticed after placing their mattress on the bed was that it made loud noises whenever anyone sat or laid in certain places. They did not have a box spring or support board because it says one is not required for the bed because of the slats. However, about three weeks into using the bed, the two supports that are there to hold the middle of the bed snapped and the legs broke off. The mattress sunk in and almost took the whole frame with it. This couple was disappointed that they purchased this bed for a pretty penny and it completely sank in after three weeks, leaving them to use wooden slats to hold up and support the middle part of the bed. Weight should not have been an issue when the middle legs snapped, so although this bed looks nice, it hasn’t held up.

Overall, although the bed itself is satisfying, this company has an unbelievably ridiculous return policy. According to them, you can return the bed within 30 days and it should not have been ever assembled. That suggests that you are expected to have the bed for 30 days in its package and then decide to return it to them without even using it so it can be eligible for a return. What is more important than the quality of the merchandise is the quality of customer service, so some users said they would not recommend anyone to buy this item.

Conclusion

The bottom line for this item is that it looks nice, but the quality is slightly poor. However, quality issues are somewhat expected for an item in the sub-$200 price range. If you want a sturdy, long-term item, perhaps look for something else to buy, but if you want an eye-pleaser that you can afford to replace or dispose of after a short stint of use, this item is as good as and beautiful as any.
