Novela Cordovan Platform Bed
This bed was simple to put together, and is fairly sturdy. It's a nice, simple design and is good for the value.

Good item for a great price!
We purchased a California king mattress set last year and it completely took over the room. Huge! The metal frame that came with it was sturdy but was sitting on cheap plastic wheels, which broke one by one until only the four corners were standing. We hesitated before buying this frame because we were afraid that it would be too cheap to support the mattress without a box spring. Well, it works just fine! It arrived in three heavy boxes and took about an hour to assemble with two people working slowly. It feels very secure and the center support legs haven't moved at all - a concern we had. Taking out the box spring was great! I can sit comfortably on the bed without my legs dangling and we got some of the visual space in the room back. Our bed now feels like it's a normal size and we can't believe how different the room looks. Definitely recommend!
PS - The cordovan red color does not look out of place with the other wood furnishings in the room, but it is definitely a noticeable reddish brown.

Great bed. I put it together by myself. It was pretty easy. Looks good, but wish it had a small headboard. I slept on my bed one night so far and had one of the best nights sleep in a long time.

Love this bed
My husband and I have been looking for a platform bed without a headboard for some time. I found this one and - nervously! - bought it based on the other review. We've been sleeping on it for a week now and I'm just in love with it. It is very sturdy and solid - much more so than my old traditional framed bed. I would definitely recommend this bed.

Stable and beautiful
This bed was incredibly easy to put together. Maybe took four or five steps. A friend helped me and we were done in less than 30 minutes (and I am horrible at putting things together!). It is really sturdy and looks great. Very simple, modern, and classy.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it slides really easily on the floor (I am planning on purchasing some non-skid pads or a rug) and because it was tricky to make sure it was a perfect rectangle when putting it together. I was worried I was going to end up with a trapezoid bed. It ended up being fine that it was not perfect, but I wish that was noted in the instructions so I didn't worry about it.

We bought this bed for our daughter's college apartment. She loved the sleek modern look. The bed arrived in great condition in two boxes. The bed went together easily and fairly quickly without any need for extra work or tools as some beds in this style seem to require, based on reviews on competitors products. It held her full size pillow top mattress perfectly and does not require a box springs which was a plus. The bed looks great and fits her decor for her room. Color is a beautiful warm almost cherry finish and it is real wood not particle board and comes with the pine slats. It does not squeak or shake a very sturdy piece of furniture. A great value for the price.

Sturdy and looks really good
The wood finish is even nicer than it appears in the photo. Assembly is fairly simple. Heavy gauge metal brackets and bolts hold the frame together and the middle beam support has four legs instead of two as in the photo. The frame looks and feels like it's built to last. Unfortunately parts of the frame was damaged during shipment. A couple of legs were ripped off from the frame and missing (Thanks a lot, UPS!) and it took about another week to receive a new frame. Other than that, I'm very satisfied with the bed frame so far.

Sturdy queen platform bed; getting addl King
I agree with the Dec. 2011 review that mentioned extra holes - how weird is that? Despite some of the holes not lining up/ not the correct amt of holes, etc., it has held up well over the past 6 months. Just plan on a little longer to put together-and this is definitely a 2 person job. You don't need to be a genius, it's just that the second person is needed to hold the joints together.
We are so pleased with the queen platform that we are purchasing a King platform.
