With this 186$ bed frame—and after a six month long sleep on it, Amazon shoppers are obsessed with it, so I’m.

I think that a bed must become as stylish as it is comfortable as a lifestyle writer and interior design enthusiast. But I wanted to snatch the stylish bedding from a thousand years ago while maintaining high-end affordability, which is why Amazon is one of my preferred destinations for the shopping of affordable furniture. I have bought some rugs and thrown pillows and blankets at incredibly great prices. I have bought them all. I had the same luck, luckily, when I was hunting for a new bed frame, that I couldn’t stop telling everybody I know.
My bed was in black wood with a headboard that looked like a clunky sleigh. It looked like an old bed. It was a set with a wardrobe and a total of $500 is spent for two nights. The set appeared to be a steal at first glance, but the bed was inconvenient and finally rent less than two years.
So I wanted something light, chic and cozy about this time when I decided to refurbish my bedroom. After days of looking for bed frames, however, I began to think, “I want to find something so cute and comfortable like my gray sofa.” And when it hit me: I needed a padded bed! I searched for “grey queen bed frames” in Amazonia fast and I discovered the bed frame of my dreams: Allewie’s Queen Modern Bed Frame. Best of everything? It costs under 200 dollars.
The bed frame that I like—in conjunction with more than 1,700 happy shoppers from Amazon—has a modern platform with a wingback headboard and a light gray fabric. (There’s also a darker grey, burnt orange, light yellow and a very smart green peacock.) And I immediately hit the check-out after reading the rave reviews. One week quickly ahead and in a big, heavy case, the bed frame came up, taking two people to my bedroom upstairs.
Now here is where things have been challenging: At least 50 pieces of wooden slabs, screws and metal bars were provided in the bed frame. This bed took my boyfriend and I almost 2 hours to set up, as opposed to the product description which estimated that it was 30 minutes. It comes with helpful lines, but no real pictures of the pieces. Some steps were therefore harder to identify since we could not tell which end was where to go.
But was it worth all this effort? “After finishing I’m overwhelmed of the entire package, I’ll let this reviewer say it. It really looks fantastic, and it is a great value.” When another shopper exclaimed, “Buy this bed!” he added, “There is no justice in the pictures.” And frankly, 100% of me agree. This bed frame changed my bedroom’s look and feel completely and I couldn’t be happier.
The design of this bed makes it very robust and comfortable. The headboard is padded and reinforced in a soft material to rest against or against your head. For super robustness, on each side, at the foot and in the middle, are two set of metal legs. The flaps on the headboard descend to the bottom and form legs about six centimeters wide. I have been sleeping on this frame for six months and have still not heard a crack or a creak. The bed frame has a platform that’s high enough just to need a mattress, so box springs that usually turn into an eye-catcher are not needed.
This bed frame has a weight of 800 livres, according to the manufacturer Allewie. The frame is not a matter of concern with two adults and two dogs on a 15.75-inch top mattress. The height of the frame is perfect for my 10-pound Pomeranian who hides below his bed and this material is strong enough to roll around and play in bed with my 60-pound Goldendoodle.
The light gray material is modern, with almost every design style perfectly combined. The shape of the headboard is what makes the frame look luxurious. This modern form gives the look you enjoy in fantastic boutique hotels to your bedroom. I found that taped beds like this can be between $300 and $1,600 following some research. It seems to be too good to find a chic and robust framework for less than $200, but you must truly think about the hype.
