    I love it! It's classic and has clean lines and will never go out of style. The delivery team was courteous and helpful. They really respect one's home by taking off their without even being asked. The only thing I don't like is that there is a delivery charge.

      Customer comments about Mackintosh Queen Low Footboard Bed:

      This bed, and probably all forged by this Minnesota company, is very well made. The side rails are as substantial as the head and footboards, unlike most every other bed around. The siderails fit perfectly, solidly, into the head and foot boards, no other gimrack hardware. The slats are also steel, and stay in place on clever little knobs on the side rails. These slats are sturdy and closely spaced enough to be used with an organic latex mattress. The bed makes no noises, doesn't even tremble when one sits, lies down, or leaps upon it for that matter. We think the 15" higher version is ideal, and not really any higher than a usual bed with a box spring. The delivery team was intelligent, articulate, courteous, accurate in predicting their arrival time, thoughtful in taking off shoes without anyone's asking. They assembled the bed swiftly, answered all questions cheerfully even though it was 9 p.m. and they had to be tired.

            Customer comments about Mackintosh Queen Low Footboard Standard Bed:

            We live in a small house and needed the extra space under the bed. This one has good side board-to-floor clearance and generous space underneath. With the R&B platform inserts and a single mattress, the bed is the perfect height for sitting comfortably (i.e. feet on floor). The lower foot board means you don't get metal jabbing into the back of your knees when you sit on the end of the bed.

            Also, the Sleep Number mattress installer was very impressed with the sturdiness and design of bed frame. Asked where we got it and took the Room and Board info with him. He said it was perfect for this mattress.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Our service guys were fast, polite and tidy. In other words, GREAT.

                we get a lot of compliments about our bed frames, our first purchase about 15 years ago or so and they still look like brand new.
                they are just beautiful in every way...these are the only frames that I would only buy...period!
                service is great, delivery is great and people at the company are fantastic.

                    The bed was set up in about 3 minutes, shockingly fast, by the delivery people. The design is simple and straightforward which facilitates set up. It looks exactly as it does on the web site. The support people were very communicative and helpful both by phone and email. The mattress I purchased locally fit perfectly. No bad surprises.

                      I ordered the bunky board since I have a Tempur-pedic mattress, and I'm very pleased. I do not find it difficult to make the bed. I got the tall leg option since my home has 9 foot ceilings, and the proportions are terrific. After a year of use I started hearing squeaks and discovered it was the bed rubbing against the wall, not the bed itself. I pulled the bed back to its original position (half an inch from the wall) and the squeaks stopeed. The style of this bed goes with almost everything; I use it with a mix of modern, mission, and colonial furniture. Because my bedroom is on the second floor up a spiral staircase, I needed a platform bed that was easy to move but could still support the weight of a heavy mattress. This fit the bill admirably. The only care the bed frame needs is an occasional wipe with a slightly damp dust cloth. I can't comment on assembly because I used R&B's delivery and set up service, which was terrific.

                        Great product. Second metal bed frame I have purchased. Strong, easy to set up, and attractive.

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        Service truck arrived at 1am during a terrible snowstorm -- the guy was great! He kept us informed the whole time and we said we would wait up. Once the bed arrived, we quickly set up the bed in time for my sister to sleep on it that night (she had also driven from Iowa through the storm earlier that day)!

                        This is the second metal bed I have purchased from Room and Board. Delivery service is always fabulous.
