    Customer comments about Mackintosh King Low Footboard Tall Bed:

    Love this bed! We ordered it after seeing similar beds in-store. It's super sturdy. We had one of those new mattresses from Helix that ships to you in a box and doesn't use a box spring, so this worked perfectly for it.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Shipment was superfast (delivered within a week), the guys who delivered it assembled it in two minutes and even moved our armoire to the other side of the room to accommodate our bed.

      Customer comments about Mackintosh Queen Low Footboard Bed:

      Love the simple design and look of the bed. Unfortunately I ordered the TALL version -- and it's WAY TOO TALL!!! I'm 5'4" tall and I almost have to hop up on the bed (and hope I don't fall off!!). I am exchanging it for the standard height bed -- which has not arrived yet.

      Delivery was great! Very quick and they removed all the packaging material!

          Customer comments about Mackintosh Queen Low Footboard Bed:

          I have been looking for a steel bed for a while. Fortunately I found R&B. The bed is very nice, strong, sturdy, has nice storage possibilities underneath, looks great, and is well worth the purchase for the quality.

          I am very hard on beds. I tried MDF and they did not last long. I tried a wooden bed and found it starting squeaking after a year of use. I ended up giving away the MDF and wooden bed. Everyone suggested a steel bed and I started looking. For the cost and quality R&B makes a very nice bed.

          It is heavy and may require two people to move and put together.
          So far I have no complaints. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

          Service and delivery comments:

          The delivery guys on east side Texas were great. They setup the bed and took away all of the garbage without any problems. Very professional and answered all questions without a problem.

                  Like most Room & Board items, this is high quality and very reasonably priced. Sturdy enough to withstand everyday wear and tear, and last a lifetime. The lines in this piece are timeless. I ordered the 15" floor clearance height, and am very pleased. This might prove a bit high for average folks, particularly with an additional 14" thick mattress. Nonetheless, I highly recommend Room & Board to anyone in the market for furniture.

                    This bed is exactly what I was looking for to go with our minimalist / modern sensibilities. It looks great, the mattress (not a R & B purchase, sorry!) fits great, and I love that's is so easy to vacuum under.

                    I also want to sing the praises of the store associate who helped me figure out which bed would work for my new mattress and for my style preferences.
