I was attracted to this bed because it's affordable and has a mid century feel. When it arrived there were a few dents in the wood, which I can get over cuz I'm sure there will be more dents over time. But I was surprised at how easily the wood dents in general. Doesnt scrap, just gets a few dents. The cross bar under the bed it very poorly designed. The screw bent and now it's not really supporting the bed. I had to get a thicker piece of wood and a new screw to get that thing to support the bed properly. My boyfriend is a big dude and so on his side of the bed u can see the wood support bowing a bit. I hope that won't affect the bed in the long run. Otherwise the bed is beautiful and sturdy and fits so well in my bedroom!!

This bed is absolutely gorgeous! My son put it together and did not have a problem. It did take four attempts for the side rails to be delivered undamaged-Bean did everything right -customer service was so nice and I have a perfect bed!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Motifshoefan Wonderful bed frame
I bought this bed for my mom in cinnamon and got it yesterday. The boxes the bed pieces came in were beat up but the bed pieces themselves were so wrapped in tape and styrofoam none of it were scratched. The instructions were very clear. I put it together myself. One thing I would like to mention to anyone who puts the bed together on your own: attach the side rails to the footboard first then to the headboard. I found this to be easier than what the instructions said. This is a very nice, sturdy bed frame. Love the solid wood maple and color. I may get one for myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PoodleswithNoodles Excellent Bed!
Very happy with this purchase! The bed is very well made, looks much more expensive than it is. I purchased the cinnamon finish and it's beautiful. The packaging was so so sturdy it was a bit of a struggle to free the pieces from the boxes. All pieces were in beautiful condition. It did not take my husband too long to put it together, and he commented on the quality of the screws, etc., and the overall quality of the construction. I would highly recommend this bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eauhomme Beautiful, functional bed!
We've been sleeping in our new bed for a few months now on a new Tuft and Needle mattress and we really love the bed (and the mattress!) The shipment arrived in several boxes and some pieces were damaged. It looked like the boxes were handled like luggage, not freight. L.L.Bean sent the replacement parts right away and we donated the damaged pieces to a local artist. The bed went together easily. My wife provided extra hands on a couple parts, but I think it could have been done by one person. Clear instructions. Excellent quality. Excellent customer service. A very sound, beautiful bed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EmilyJ74 Beautiful Bed -- Horrible Manufacturer Packaging
My headboard arrived with a dented box and headboard and after 2+ weeks, the replacement headboard was lightly scratched but I kept it because it was on the back. The manufacturer needs to provide more protection in its packaging for the headboard. This was a MAJOR hassle. Customer service at LL Bean was easy, apologetic and friendly but this doesn't make up for the manufacturer's packing issues. I've read of similar issues in other reviews.
That said, I LOVE the bed. Gorgeous, simple and classic -- it is the perfect bed for a small room. I purchased it in cinnamon and it is beautiful. I would do it all again -- worth the hassle.

I looked high and low for a real wood, made in the USA bed that was not HUGE or overly ornate.This it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Catnhat44 Great Looks and High Quality
I was so happy when the bed arrived, as I was really looking forward to it being in line with the high quality of everything else from LLBean. I was a bit put off when the boxes were in rather poor condition (even the UPS driver made a comment and noted it), but happily discovered that the inner packaging was intact. No damage! I must say because the bed is hardwood, the boxes were heavy, especially the one with the support slats. But I put the bed together without any help, it took about and hour. The directions were very clear, which was wonderful.
I love the fit and finish, as well as the design. Very good support, in fact better than the box spring and metal frame I used to have. I'd recommend this bed to anyone! Thanks Bean!

Loved the look in the catalogue, and equally delighted with the bed 4 nights of sleep later! It does take two to set up ( ordered the king) , and is pretty simple. We do need a touch up bottle of blue paint: there were minor chips. All in all, the quality is great and the look - Joseph Cornell blue-is unique.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LFergie Couldn't be happier
We love this bed. We purchased it in white and also purchased the 4 drawers. It is beautiful. My husband assembled it in an afternoon. The bed is sturdy, and looks so fresh and nice. It fits so nicely in a small bedroom. The drawers are wonderful, too. We are able to make the most of our space. I found the description LL Bean gave about the bed was very accurate. No surprises. Great bed for the price. So refreshing not to deal with cheap products.
