Decent heavy storage bed
This bed is made from birch plywood. We ordered it unfinished to save money and to use a zero voc stain since I have chemical sensitivities and that turned out nice after sanding the bed frame upon arrival. It is heavy so you will need help moving it to your room and upstairs if you have them. I wish we had left the plywood frame in the garage for a couple more months before moving it in house - I can still smell the fresh plywood although it doesn’t bother my husband I’ve been occasionally sleeping in another room. Will be looking for a zero voc sealer from Green Building Supply to se if that helps cut down on the odor. Living in a small house, it is nice to have the extra storage from the 6 drawers.
Amazing product, just a few frustrations
First off, the bed itself is fantastic! I chose the full extension drawer upgrade and I am so glad I did -- I always hate pulling out a drawer too far and having it drop out, but these have tracks that hold them even at their furthest extension so you never have to shuffle it back onto the tracks. Brilliant!
The craftsmanship is great, the drawers are roomy, and the color is just right. The bed was made within the estimated production window, which I appreciated.
My only complaint was the fulfillment process. I don't expect Amazon-level logistics from local businesses, but it took four weeks to get from New York to Washington, DC, which feels a little silly. It shipped July 1, reached the local delivery terminal 45 minutes away from my house on July 12, then finally delivered on July 25 (exceeding the given delivery window of the 13-22 by three days).
There was also an inexplicable instruction booklet included with the delivery, which was confusing because the booklet provided directions for assembling an Ashley furniture unit -- which is a little alarming after you've paid $2000+ for a hand-built item. The booklet turned out to be completely irrelevant because the bed it featured wasn't remotely similar in design (save that it had drawers), and the bed I did receive was clearly handmade-- so I'm just kind of baffled as to why it was included at all, except to briefly scare me.
All in all, super happy with my purchase, just a few weirdnesses with the delivery!
Fantastic job, beautiful finish, very well done, strong, very happy.
This bed is just what we were looking for and reasonably priced. It is high quality and very easy to assemble. I highly recommend it
if you have limited space as the drawers are large and easily accessed. We also bought the headboard with the floating night stands and it makes for a wonderful combination
Beautifully built, precisely constructed to go together with ease. Excellent drawers glide in and out easily and are of a good size. Amazing how much stuff you can store under this bed. We also purchase the headboard with floating bedside tables that also was easy to install and makes a perfect bed.
