Comments: After having an antique iron bed, we were ready for a change. I love that this bed is so heavy and sturdy, it feels like it could last like our antique bed. Its sparse style and simple lines make an impact and leave room for creativity with the bedding. The canopy gives a nod to romance, while the bed has a modern and clean aesthetic. We are very pleased.

Comments: I am in love with this bed! The height from the floor gives the room a very airy feel. My husband complains on a lack of headboard, but we had to get rid of our upholstered bed because the headboard was ruined by my kids. It is very strong and my husband can do tons of pull-ups with the upper rail and not one squeak was heard. Go for it if you are thinking about buying this bed. Delivery was easy and very patient with 4 kids running around.

Comments: The high sheen color on the steel makes for an incredible depth of color. The blue is just rich enough without being navy. I went with the higher bed verses the standard lower version. The higher bed with a standard mattress (bed doesn't take a box spring) is in line with what most bedside tables and beds are from a traditional design perspective. The lower version is more suitable for the lower profile modern bedsides that are on the market these days. I did order the coordinating mattress boards from Room and Board and am thrilled with them as well.

Comments: We have purchased two Architecture beds and we love them both. The first was in 2011 for our vacation home (queen, black steel). We wanted something modern but unusual that would make guests feel like they were truly on vacation. The second in 2014 for our new home (king/white). Both versions have the "tall" legs (in '11 that was the only option, we chose it in '14). I would encourage customers to really measure twice before closing the tall option. (We did not purchase R&B mattresses.) Our vacation home mattress is standard height - no pillow top - and the overall height is fine. Our primary home mattress is a pillow top and is really tall. Even though we are 6'8" and 6', when we get out of bed, we are immediately standing up. Our fault, not R&B's, and we don't really mind but it isn't ideal!

Comments: This was my investment furniture piece when I bought my 'forever' home 9 years ago. It is magnificent and supports even heavyset people without concern of metal fatigue. Add a star that it is made in the USA! However, I am now faced with moving and do not know if my bed can be disassembled and move with me...right now it is a ship in a bottle...but buy one and you will not be disappointed! (PS: Pragmatists that we are, we hang curtains on the sides to repel drafts in winter and hang wet laundry to dry over the top!)

Comments: I waited 6 weeks for the bed to be delivered, it was defective. The beam at the top had a large gap at the post. While R&B allowed me to keep the detective bed until a new one was ordered, I had to wait another 6 weeks. This problem could have been mitigated with proper quality control before shipping the purchase. I admit I bought into the marketing about it being handcrafted etc. etc. But having to wait for a bed for 3 months and paying a price premium to do so is not what I anticipated.
Although I admire their designs, I will not purchase from them again.

Comments: We got this bed for our 6 year old daughter. Made her feel like a princess. When her friends come, they all like to hang from top of the frame. It is very sturdy so it's like a jungle gym for them. It is beautiful and fun at the same time. We love it!
Although it is on a pricier side, this bed will last a long time...even through her teenage years and into adulthood. We got the pewter color so it will not be childish at all.

Comments: Looks great. My daughter is in love with this bed. However just a word of caution the metal bar at the head of the bed is extremely hard if you miss the pillow and happen to hit it.
Personally, we are planning to fashion a wrap- around pad to counter this.

Comments: We sold our Cal King Cleo bed - traditional, gifted velvet - for a contemporary look. This bed is perfect. Well made. Sleek but not flimsy. Really weighted but still easy to disassemble when needed.

Comments: We LOVE the look of this bed, and the sturdy base has made our mattress better (great unanticipated benefit!). However...if you are a perfectionist, you might have issues. I had noticed right away that the paint was not perfect - some sagging, rough paint, etc. I continued to notice it but it's not visible from more than a couple of feet away (it's white, as is the room).
Our painter nicked the finish about a year after we bought the bed. R&B was great (awesome response time) and sent a paint pen incredibly quickly. But...when I really looked at the bed in preparation for using said paint pen, I realized how un-smooth the paint really is. The paint sags (due to excess paint) in multiple places, and in other places it looks like the still-wet cross-bar was put down on something and then picked up again. It's fine, but really not as perfect as it should be. A bit of a disappointment.
Strength and scale combine to create Architecture—a modern bed with a dramatic presence. Handmade from sturdy steel and finished with a glossy powder-coating, Architecture adds a pop of color in a modern form. Choose the Tall profile for greater clearance between the side rails and the floor.
