Longer Than Expected, But Good Buy from Provo Utah on 07/14/2012
I purchased this bed online in a queen size, and have had it for almost a year. Overall, I am pleased. It has a substantial weight and feels solid; a good value for the money. The headboard is tall, and flexes just slightly, but in general, it seems sturdy. My husband had no problem with assembly. The color is interesting- in direct sunlight it is brown, but in lower light it appears more black as shown in the picture. The only reason I gave this bed a rating of 4 rather than 5 is because of one concern: as others have mentioned, the rails seem a bit long for standard sized mattresses. If I push my Tempur-Pedic to either end of the bed, there is a considerable gap of maybe 4-5 inches between the mattress and the bed. Perhaps this was an intentional design to accommodate thick comforters, but as a mom with small kids, my first thought was what a major safety hazard it would be if a baby was ever left unattended on the bed. (Ideally this would never happen, but hey, people do make mistakes). Too much space near the headboard is uncomfortable, and near the footboard it looks kind of weird. To fix the problem, I situated the mattress so that it rests in the middle of the bed frame, minimizing the gap on both ends. Still looks good, and the issue is not noticeable enough for me to want to return, but I would have liked it better if the length were closer to standard.

Dexter Poster Metal Bed from Newington, CT on 07/22/2014 – Verified Buyer
Love, love, love this bed! It arrived on time, in two packages that were easy to bring inside. The (queen size) frame was easy to put together. I liked that the site product information and picture were very accurate. Product reviews were also helpful. I noticed some reviewers mentioned a gap on either end between the mattress and frame that I was concerned about, but I found the gap just enough spacing for my comforter or quilt to fit without having to struggle to make the bed. The frame finishes off the room nicely. This item is definitely worth the price it's offered at on this site. I would recommend this product if it's the look you're going for; I'm so pleased with this purchase.

AWESOME BED!!! from Clyde, TX on 03/19/2013 – Verified Buyer
I read all the reviews on this bed before I purchased it. I had never made a purchase from Wayfair before and wanted to know what people thought. When I saw the bed I knew it was exactly like the bed I saw in LL Bean, but $220 cheaper (Wayfair included shipping). One of the reviews stated that they had seen this same bed on LL Bean and bought it from Wayfair for much less. I also had seen it on that site. There was a discount of 20 that weekend and I had a 10 promo coupon also that I used when I bought it. I ordered it on a weekend, it shipped on that Monday and was delivered on two days later just as Wayfair said it would. The bed is absolutely beautiful. I bought the hammered antique copper color and it is exactly what I have been looking for. This bed is very well made and I put it together completely by myself in less than 2 hours. My husband came home from work and loved it. It is in our spare room and will welcome our guests! If you have been looking for a long time for a antique looking and sturdy bed this is the one you want. The service, shipping and product from Wayfair was outstanding. I will buy again from them.

Dexter King Metal Bed from Downingtown, PA on 06/02/2014
The first thing I want to mention about this bed is the color. It's very hard to tell from pictures but its described as "hammered bronze". It's a brownish/pewter color with black speckles throughout. It wasn't at all what I was expecting...not necessarily bad, but different. The other thing is that there is a considerable gap either at the top by the headboard or at the bottom, depending on how you position your mattress. The frame is not adjustable and is a good 6 inches longer than a standard mattress. I found this to be annoying because having a gap at the top meant that your pillows fell through and having that big of a gap on the bottom looked silly. I'm currently looking for some type of foam wedge to put up at the top to help close that gap. Other than that, the bed is very well constructed and sturdy and does look nice in the room. We purchased the king size.

Perfect! from Los Angeles, CA on 09/23/2013 – Verified Buyer
I came across this bed featured in a design room on pinterest, not tagged of course. I scoured the web and was very excited to have found the exact same bed here, and then after a little more research, found this to be the best price for it. I'm usually skeptical about big purchases online, but the reviews were all really helpful and I'm glad I listened. It arrived quickly, was super easy to put together by myself, it's sturdy, and with a little help from a pair of plyers, there's zero squeaking from the headboard(you gotta get those bolts tight!). If this is the bed that will complete the look you're going then don't hesitate. You won't be disappointed!
