        The bed is great and was delivered 2 weeks before the original arrival date! I ordered the extra high version, not realizing that I would have to use a low profile box spring. But the bed is great, no squeaks totally solid!

        I'll Bet It's Nice

        By Still Sleeping on the Floor

        from Salt Lake, City, UT

        Verified Buyer

        Customer comments about Mackintosh California King High Footboard Tall Bed:

        I ordered this piece almost 2 months ago. After waiting and waiting the the bed finally arrived. The delivery guys got it set up but told me that the slats were the wrong size (so they were going to have customer service send me new ones). They were about to hop in their truck and leave when I noticed that the bed seemed crooked. Turns out the headboard and footboard were not even the same size (width)—which is why the slats wouldn't fit. Luckily I caught it because the delivery/assembly guys were oblivious to the fact. They took the bed down and returned it. So, here I sit, waiting patently for the correct bed to arrive, but feel quite frustrated by the poor communication from R&B. I'll bet it's a really nice piece, but not sure if it's really worth such a ridiculously long wait/the hassle.

            We purchased this bed 18 years ago when we built our house. It is as rock solid as the day it was delivered. No wobbles, squeaks, nothing. Just know this bed weighs a LOT so put it where it will stay as moving it intact is difficult.

              I love this bed. My home a 1920s Dutch colonial, but I have fairly contemporary minimalist style. This bed foots the bill perfectly for a transitional home that doesn't was to be overly modern, and the architecture is a great classic look. It could work in any home. It's also well built. Using the platform and a foam latex mattress it works well, although I could see where making the bed could be a problem without the platform to raise the mattress up a couple inches.

                  The bed is gorgeous and very sturdy, but the side rails have rough edges. If you sit up and slide out of bed you will scrape the undersides of your thighs. These edges need to be rounded or polished in some way. Even though, I still love the style and look of this bed and most of all it's sturdiness.
