Comments: After a 2 year search for a modern and well made storage bed, I came across the Marlo on the room & board website. More expensive than I had been initially looking for, but appeared so perfect I had to see it in person. Even better than I expected, and my sales-person was wonderful.
And now that I've had it for about 2 months, I couldn't be more satisfied & thrilled. Worth every penny.

Comments: Easily our favorite bed ever purchased! Looks great, fits into our urban condo quite nicely, and, best of all, the storage drawer rocks! We can't say enough about how much we love this bed. It was a superb purchase!

Comments: I purchased this bed once I decided to move an older Room & Board bedroom set to a guest room in my home and so it is now my primary bed. I can not emphasize how sturdy and solid this bed it. Once you decide where to put it, you can be certain that it is going to stay. I purchased my storage bed in the stock grey to allow more flexibility on my cover and pillow colors.
I matched the bed up with a heavy organic mattress that lays nicely on the steel slats. No box spring is required and I've never slept better. Another bonus is the fact that I can sit up and read with back support.
Finally I use the slide out drawer for my seasonal clothing and linens. It is a wonderful and clever space saver! Overall, I'm pleased with this purchase and remain a loyal R&B customer for well over 10 years. Do try it out in one of R&B showrooms!

Comments: Comfortable, beautiful bed. It's the perfect size and height. I love that it's soft and cushioned all the way around so when I run into it, I don't hurt my shins, and so you don't need very many pillows to feel supported when sitting up in it. It's very well-built and seems like it will last forever. The storage drawer is amazing to have in a condo, for guest pillows and linens that we'd otherwise have nowhere to store.
When we had it delivered, it was assembled with the drawer slightly askew, but R&B quickly came back to resolve the issue -- and it really was a minor, quick fix!

Comments: We got the Marlo King Storage Bed in Oatmeal Tatum. It's beautiful but I will say it looks slightly different from the pictures online because most of the pictures (especially in the galleries) are of a queen. When you take the same design and elongate it to make it a king, it changes the dimensions/proportions of the overall style a bit. I feel like the king has less of a "cocoon-like" feel from the sides. Perhaps if they made the wings come out a couple more inches it would have achieved the same look. I still love it though!
Another thing is that when you tuck a quilt under the mattress, it tends to bag a little at the foot of the bed, and sometimes it interferes with the closing of the drawer, making it prone to sliding open a tad on the gliders. I almost wish they had just added magnets to the drawers/box frame, to keep it from doing this. I actually might hot glue some on myself! It doesn't help that my two rug rats use the platform and drawer portion as a stepping stone to crawl into bed. :/
Still, I love it overall.
Delivery and installation was great.

Comments: Beautiful bed, very comfortable for reading. The storage drawer works great and was well worth the money. I can keep 8 pair of shoes and many handbags. Its not the easiest thing to open because the bedding gets in the way and the mattress slides down. I would find it irritating to open 10 times a day, but once or twice is fine. The neutral stocked fabric is gorgeous and goes with a range of bedding. Love it.

Comments: The extra storage that this bed provides with the pull out drawer is so helpful! We only have room for one dresser, so this is a lifesaver!

Comments: The lower drawer keeps all of the linens and extra blankets and they are handy in case you have a chilly night...

Comments: This is a lovely bed that is well constructed. The fabric and aesthetic lines are excellent. The storage drawer is a nice idea but needs more attention - consider adding a catch or magnets so that it stays closed when bedding is tucked just above it. Also consider adding some type of tucking area around the edge of the entire bed in order to cleanly tuck a coverlet under the mattress but above the fabric frame/bottom edge of the bed.
The Marlo storage bed features the same distinctive silhouette as our original version, but a hidden storage drawer that pulls out from the foot of the bed makes it as functional as it is stylish.
This bed features a mattress platform made of steel slats, eliminating the need for a box spring or foundation. We recommend a mattress height of 13 inches or shorter to achieve the ideal bed proportions. Shop our mattresses for a perfect fit.
