This bed comes in one color and comes with plastic legs. It allows for your mattress to be placed directly on top of the slats, and the screws required for assembly are included. The slats and headboard are included as well, but you don’t need a box spring to use this item. Assembly is required, and the product comes with a 5-year warranty. Finally, the back is made in finished-back design, and the item itself is made in China.

Depending on your needs, you may or may not want a bed that comes in king size, because there have been a few instances of customers complaining that the size of that particular product was a little off. However, apart from minor size issues, this item is high on construction quality and low on price, and also satisfies in terms of shipping convenience, ease of assembly, available size options, customer popularity, and overall customer review scores.

Before making a purchase, check the measurements of the platform bed as given below against the size of the living space in which you plan to use this product.

All the prices are only for reference, Exact price will be based on the latest quotation.

The Leonard upholstered platform bed is currently on sale for $133.99. At this price, you will save 44% off the official listed price of $237.80. However, because there are often seasonal promotions and other marketing deals on offer, make sure you check the latest price before finalizing your purchase so that you can catch any ongoing sales or lock in any deals at the exact time that you are ready to buy. This item also comes with monthly payments as low as $12 per month, as well as free shipping on qualifying orders.

If you are interested in buying protection for this item, you can purchase a pretty comprehensive protection plan for $12.99 that covers accidental stains, incidental damage, unintentional stains, rips, tears, burns, punctures, chips, dents, and water rings. Customers who purchase a protection plan are covered for the above-mentioned damages as soon as their sofa is delivered. However, all customers should keep in mind that damage caused by neglect, improper care, intentional abuse, a failure to comply with the manufacturer’s warranty, or as a result of using the sofa or sectional for purposes other than its intended purpose of sitting on are not covered.


This will prove to be one of the easiest products you’ve ever put together. You can open the packaging, carry it up 3 flights of stairs, and assemble it all by yourself within an hour. High quality and true to size, the best thing about this bed is that it does not require a box spring. In case you are wondering about the slats, no, you cannot feel the wooden boards across the bottom. And although they are wooden and not metal, they are still very sturdy.

Well illustrated directions accompany the assembly directions, and there are very few steps involved overall. Everything should fit together perfectly, and no muscling required to get the different pieces to fit together. The only tool you will probably use will be an Allen wrench that actually comes provided with delivery. All of the parts come in a zippered compartment on the back of the headboard. Made from quality material, the legs are plastic, but a very sturdy type. Upholstery is high quality. Boards that support the mattress are connected together and roll on easily. This bed has far exceeded what many people paid for it. The main pros are easy assembly, easy-to-read instructions with little required in terms of effort, quality material, and great price.


Some people said that the item they received was either used or not quality enough for regular retail. There were tears in the fabric, nicks in the frame, and only the extra parts were included. One particular customer could not put the bed together without going to the store to buy the screws to get the job done. If sending a king size bed back wouldn’t be such a chore, they would have done so, and they have been waiting weeks for a bed frame but are reluctant to go back to a mattress on the floor.

So although this product is well designed and comes in great packaging, it has an unsightly and large space between the headboard and the mattress. You could pull the mattress up close to the headboard, but then every time you go around the bed you hit your shins on the footboard. Also, that space at the end of the bed just looks ugly even with a comforter, so you may have to purchase a headboard wedge to cover up the space to keep your pillows from falling down in the gap, which is an extra $55 at least!

In terms of shortcomings, the bottom line is that this bed is pretty cheap but it will do the job for you for a short while. The legs are plastic, the support slats are made of very soft wood, sometimes the slats actually come a bit damaged, and the upholstery fabric can look very cheap too, although the level of style and design of the upholstery may be adequate or wanting depending on your taste.


Overall, this is an average product. It has a relatively well-made bed frame, and comes with legs that are generally sturdy. The height is just right for a 10″ foam mattress, and it is very simple to put together. Some people don’t like the Velcro on the slats, but it is actually a very useful feature. It feels like it is constructed by a high-end furniture store as opposed to something like IKEA, but with an IKEA price tag.

Most people found this bed to be wonderful, and the only major complaints were that shipping can be a bit redundant, and it creaks and makes noise on occasion. Most people gave it a 5-star rating on a 5-star scale, and this item scores high marks in the areas of price, ease of assembly, manufacturer brand name, shipping convenience, overall customer score, and contemporary design.
