Rated 4 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Poor design Big gap between mattress & footboard for queen mattress. The frame is adjustable side to side but not length.California King is 84" long Queen is 80" long leaving a gap.Note you need a short box spring as well. February 17, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by worth the price? I finally received my bed yesterday (we waited +/- 2 months) and put it together as soon as I got home. I purchased it in "old world brown" liking the colour that I saw in the picture, but it is lighter than it is in the photo. For some reason I thought it would automatically come with side rails, especially for the price I was paying -- to some people it may not be much. Instead, it's just an extremely ugly metal bed frame that will probably not even get covered completely with a bed skirt from the end of the mattress to the actual footboard. Do I like the looks of the bed? Yes. Will I recommend it? Yeah, sure. Do I think it's worth the price? No. January 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by great style Elegant (not bulky), solid, differs from mainstream beds and fits perfectly with victorian house; very pleased with this bed November 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I fell in with a French cane bed that was way too expensive from another vendor. When I found this one and on sale, I was thrilled! It's really beautiful. Assembly was a little hairy, but probably because I did it on my own. February 16, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Expected it to be more sturdy It's very elegant but I would of thought it might a bit hardier in construction. January 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks great! We received the bed and had the people delivering our new mattress put the bed together. It was easy for them and the quality seems good. I love the look of the bed and don't mind the iron side as some previous people commented about. I put on a bedskirt and you hardly see it. Love it! December 12, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very nice but not quite what we expected. From the product description we were expecting wooden side rails "surrounded in a hardwood frame with beaded detail" however it has very ugly metal side rails. We will need to get some custom made which will be very expensive, as we do not wish to use a bed skirt. Other than that the headboard & footboard are beautiful and go with our antique French furniture very nicely. December 12, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Looks as shown, good workmanship The low profile bed is beautiful, the color is true to the online photo, and it arrived much sooner than predicted which was a welcome surprise. However, the support cross-pieces on my queen bed were King-sized--about 6" too long--so had to be cut down with a hand saw. Including a box spring makes the bed look very top-heavy and may require a small step stool for access; omitting the box spring, however, requires adding a plywood base because the 4 cross-pieces don't provide enough mattress support. We purchased, cut, and stained two 4x8 pieces of ply and are very happy with the result despite the fact that, as noted by others, the queen mattress is several inches shorter and narrower than the bed frame. The ply covers the otherwise exposed "innards" of the bed's structure. October 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality, love the finish I looked at many many beds for at least six months before purchasing this one. It is a great value for the money and just what I was looking for. I bought the antique white which was difficult to see on-line because of the color. But it looks and was exactly what I had in mind. There was a problem with the shipper but Ballard got them on a conference call & cleared it up the same day. Excellent service. April 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful I love the Louis bed. My husband was able to put it together without too much trouble and it was delivered in perfect shape in a timely fashion. It looks enough shappy chic but not too antiquey. April 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful bed....solid construction and very nice finish My first time purchasing furniture with Ballard and I am completely happy with the Louis bed and foot-board. The Old World finish is beautiful. It could pass for an antique bed. The bed's construction is a lot heavier and nicer than I had anticipated. Customer service was excellent again as usual. I know I will be shopping again with Ballard very soon. February 25, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by louis bed It is a very lovely bed especially at the price. The workmanship is good and the color of the stained wood was just as expected. December 9, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by A lovely and elegant bed. I am delighted with this bed which is both comfortable and elegant. It looks like an antique. I highly recommend it. August 25, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by The Louis Bed looks terrific, but assembly is slightly tricky. We really love the look of the bed & it is true to the picture on Ballard's website. I will say that the first bed we received was defective so we were promptly sent another one, which was terrific customer service. The second bed arrived & mounting the headboard & base board to the brackets with the box spring is not easy or at least it wasn't for us. It was a bit of a process, but it all worked out in the end. Great bed but a bit some sweat & elbow grease are required for assembly. March 16, 2011
