Comments: I just received this bed last week and I love it! (The only reason I didn't select durable is that it is too soon to be sure.) The design fits effortlessly into pretty much any style--my partner and I have completely different taste--and is undoubtedly the coolest bed on the block. Not only is a box spring not required, neither is the mat that some platform beds need. The supports are a strong metal, and there are about 8-10 support slats for the mattress (impressive compared with the 3 flimsy 2x4s that were intended to support a California King from another unnamed store), meaning a 250-lb. person can sleep easy knowing the bed will not collapse (just saying, unnamed store). Finally, the frame fits our mattress PERFECTLY, not one gap. The only con is that the stocked color is very light and neutral, gutsier tastes should special order and wait for a bolder color.

Comments: The best part of this bed is that you can rest your head in the corner of the headboard on the soft fabric. Its a great scale for a medium sized bedroom and is simple enough to fit most styles without being boring. I love this bed.

Comments: This bed is super solid and really heavy. I live in an old apartment where I am stressed about making any sounds; this bed's construction design is great. It doesn't shake or wobble AT ALL to make uncomfortable sounds. The downside, it is really heavy; the delivery men were sweating a lot when they delivered and assembled this bed and made a sweat mark on the new bed....also, I was disappointed to see some lumps in the upholstery on the front part of the headboard. The top of the headboard is not quite straight either. An almost $2000 bed should not have this type of quality issue.

Comments: Bought the Marlo bed in Tetris Fog in king size back in July. Fell in love the day I saw it and everyday since. It is very well made - sturdy and just beautiful. Read some reviews on some mattresses not fitting perfectly- the mattress I bought is a bit smaller than the frame- about 6" - I just pushed the mattresses to the foot of the bed and put a bolster at the head. Looks great.

Comments: I bought the Marlo queen bed for a guest bedroom. Love the look, but it 's difficult to put the fitted sheet on the bed (I have to lift the corner of the mattress up and rest it on the side of the platform in order to tuck sheet under the corner of the mattress). Also, I knew when I purchased the bed that I would likely have to pull the bedding back when not in use (I like the look). If you want the bedspread/comforter to be pulled up to the head of the bed, maybe not exactly the bed for you. I think it would be a pain to tuck in a comforter between the mattress and wing of headboard.

Comments: Very comfortable headboard, solidly built piece, classy and a touch modern, good quality fabric and I like the mild boucle feel of it. Wish it fit our box spring and was a little higher off the ground, so underbed storage was possible. But otherwise, very very happy.

Comments: We've only had the bed for a month now, but so far we love everything about it.

Comments: Gorgeous bed, it looks fabulous in my room and my mattress fits perfectly. The style is clean and simple, yet subtly feminine. The stock color is just what I was looking for, but agree that those with bolder taste or lighter colored walls should go for a darker color.

Comments: I love the look of this bed and think it's beautifully made but honestly...anyone who says that the base of the bed (and boards) "do the same thing as a box spring" is completely wrong/lying. Our bed has ZERO spring to it and even though we didn't get a super-firm mattress, it's VERY VERY hard. Also, you kind of HAVE TO get a board even though the representative I spoke to said we didn't -- the slats are too far apart for a mattress which would get ruined otherwise (we spoke to two different mattress stores).

Comments: This bed is perfect for our room. We wanted something with clean lines that went well with all white beding. We have walnut floors and the bed color with white linens contrast perfectly with the dark floors.
The Marlo kids' bed surrounds your child in comfort while providing a distinctive silhouette in your child's bedroom. A graceful, curved headboard is softly upholstered to create an inviting oasis that can be enjoyed for years to come.
