This bed is really great, looks amazing, and is definitely sturdy and solid. One thing that is not obvious in the pictures is that the pine boards going across the headboard are not as thick as the headboard itself. They are actually very thin, like 1/4", so you quickly realize if you knock on them that they aren't very solid at all. Similarly, the rest of the bed doesn't really have any thick boards at all, there are just multiple pieces working together to give the illusion of big solid pieces.
Apart from that gripe the bed's quality is still great, and at least it is real wood, not dustboard like cheaper beds. The price could be lower though because it is representative of higher quality timbers which are not present here. The wood is a) reclaimed, b) thin and light, c) softwood not hardwood - and so the actual cost is way lower than the price. On the other hand, I'm not finding beds that are this nice in the same price range so I have to retract this complaint somewhat.
The headboard came with damage to the foot that can't be seen from the sides once it is assembled. Basically a factory worker drove a thick nail up into the bottom of the foot, not sure why, and this split and chipped on the back side of the foot, going up about 1". Also 1 of the 4 plastic protective pads for the bottoms of the feet was missing. I mentioned these things and was offered a $100 gift card as compensation which I didn't accept because these things were minor.
