I purchased this bed early last month. The bed was delivered on time and the delivery men were very friendly and chatty. Myself and my Wife opted out of the assembly option and chose to assemble it ourselves. When the bed arrived it came in a number of large boxes which made us question whether we had made the right decision with regards to self assembly. After unboxing the items, we were relieved as there really wasn't many seperate parts to building the bed. The instructions were extremely easy to follow and we managed to assemble it without any issues.
A bit of advice however, I'd suggest using a powertool to aid in assembly as it's much quicker than using standard hand tools. Overall, if you're happy with DIY, the bed is not a challenge to assemble.
Once assembled, the bed sat perfectly within our bedroom. A sylish, modern and relatively light weight bed which looks excellent. The ottomon feature is also extremely handy, leaving plenty of room for storage under the bed. I wouldn't attempt to lift/close the bed without a matress on as it takes a lot of force to close it. With a matress, opening and closing is simple.
I'd greatly recommend this bed if you're looking for a new one, it looks great, has excellent build quality and I have no doubt that it'll last for years to come.
