The bed is priced much cheaper on the manufacturer's outlet website. It was sent to me missing pieces. However, Groupon and the manufacturer both helped to reach a fair resolution. The side rails are two pieces that must be assembled. I'd prefer solid pieces. Lesson learned, search the brand first not just Groupon reviews. It's a nice bed but not the quality I was expecting from pics.
I was a concerned that I wouldn’t get all the pieces when I looked at the reviews. However, I received everything and it looks great! Only thing to mention is that the bed is pretty low so you’ll definitely need a box spring or bed risers. I bought a 12 in mattress and there is a huge gap between the bottom of the headboard and the mattress. Other than that, I love it!
