    Customer comments about Portica Queen Bed:

    I spent a LONG time looking for a new bed. I wanted something that didn't require a box spring. I knew that I wanted something light to contrast with all of the dark wood in my bedroom and most of all I wanted something sturdy. It's been over two months and so far I'm really happy with it. It's so solid and it looks great. Yes of course I've accidentally bumped a leg maneuvering around it in the middle of the night but it's okay b/c I'll learn to avoid the hard edges soon enough. The delivery service was seamless.

      Customer comments about Portica Queen Bed:

      This is a modern and simple frame. It is good looking, but not trying to be the center piece of the room. A box spring is not required and the frame is not particularly expensive compared to other beds on the market. We have a modern new construction home, and this looks great in the guest bedroom.

      Solid & clean look

      • Difficult to make bed
      • Sidebar No Match Finish

      Best Uses

        Customer comments about Portica Queen Bed:

        The side bars that hold the head and foot boards together are plain steel, they don't match the rest of the frame, and probably more importantly, since they form a lip that holds the mattress fairly tightly in place it is difficulty to make the bed. A simple solution would be for the manufacturer to invert the bars so the mattress sits on a flat surface.
        Another tricky aspect to the headboard is the stainless steel bars look great but don't cushion the pillows from the wall or and generally ride so pillows don't quite protect your head from the steel.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Awesome delivery service! They walked it down a narrow street to my house, assembled the frame and set the mattress in quickly and on time!

              I have been eyeing this bed for a long time and finally bought it. It is perfectly matched with the Portica steel table I bought years ago and our aluminum chairs. Its simple, classic and will last forever. Looks great with linen beddings.

              We bought a foam bed for it and the foam fits slightly tight on the edges. Its new so not sure if the coating will eventually peel. It has not done so on the table.

                  Customer comments about Portica Queen Bed:

                  I was so excited about buying this bed and replacing our previous creaky bed only to find this one is so much noisier and we wake up every time one of us moves in the night because it is just so creaky.
                  I love the design and had such high hopes...it does look great and seems so sturdy and well made but for us it creaks whenever you roll, sit down or get up and ha done so from the first day.
                  It might be that our heavy latex mattress is too much for it to deal with but either way we have to get rid of it and it is only a month old...the one we tried in the showroom was whisper quiet and didn't make a sound. Big waste of money for us unfortunately.

                    Q:

                    I am 6' 6" and therefore I do not want the top of the footboard to protrude higher than the top of my mattress. I understand that the depth from the platform to the top of the footboard is 11.5" but my mattress is just under 11 inches high. Can I place a board or other type of platform between the frame and under the mattress to raise the height of the mattress, or is that not recommended? Do you sell something like this? Thanks

                      The bed will not be boxed. The components will be wrapped individually, consisting of a headboard (61” x 47”), a footboard (61” x 27”), 12 steels slats and 2 side rails (not quite 7’ long). The headboard and footboard do not break down into smaller pieces.

                      A:

                      You may order an additional set of steel slats so they can be closer together. You may also want to consider a Platform Board. This would provide the most consistent support and would meet the requirements for your particular mattress.

                      A:

                      The Portica Bed is steel and uses a slot system for assembly instead of screws, so there should not be movement in the frame. Sometimes, however, the steel slats under the mattress can rub against the steel frame creating a creaking noise. For this reason, we do offer small felt pads for our bed frames during delivery.

                    can i use a box spring with this bed and if so will it raise the whole bed so less of the headboard shows?

                      Room & Board Bed Frames are designed for use with a mattress only. Adding a box spring would reduce the exposure of the headboard and raise the overall mattress height.

                    Hi,

                    I have a few questions on the Portica queen bed. 1) I know that the side rails are steel but what about the slats...are they stainless or steel, too? 2) How many inches between the slats? 3) The bed is sized differently than a standard queen mattress...why is that? 4) I read that one reviewer on the canopy bed had rust on the steel rail, is this normal wear on the bed (they are pretty much the same bed minus the canopy)? Thank you!

                      A:

                      The slats are natural hot-rolled steel, spaced 4.5" apart on queen size. The interior dimensions are approximately 60.5"w x 81"d, so standard 60x80 queen mattresses fit well on the Portica bed. Stainless steel is not impervious to rust, but the high chromium content makes it highly resistant to corrosion.

                    Hi,

                    I have a question regarding the space between the bars at both the foot of the bed and the head (not the base slats). I realize that they might be the same. I have a low bed...

                    Thank you.

                    My mattress is only 6-7 inches tall and 60x80 otherwise, will it fit comfortably in the bed frame and not slide around? Thank you.

                    Are the side rails on the Portica bed supposed to be stainless steel as well? I just had the bed delivered yesterday and the side rails are natural (or regular)steel. Not sure if it was a mistake or not. Thanks.

                    I am looking for a bed with the height of the Portica (under bed clearance of 11.5") but with a solid headboard (wood or fabric). Will either this company or the companies that makes the Copenhagen or Ella make something custom? The Webster just doesn't pull it off.

                      Our beds are only sold as a complete frame. The Portica headboard is designed to attach to our steel side rails.

                      The materials from which these are made is different. The Parsons bed in Natural Steel while the Portica bed is Stainless Steel. The Portica bed steel tubing is 1.5 inches square and Parsons measures 2 inches square.
