Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I love my Louis Daybed, it is so beautiful. It makes a fabulous statement in the room. Everyone who sees it wants one! Thank you Ballard Design for making me a great decorator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, but difficult to assemble. It is a very formal and good looking bed, with a good old fashioned vibe to it. The bed itself has plenty of room and is overall very nice. My only issue is it was kind of difficult to assemble due to lack of specification in the directions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I'very been looking for! I ordered this daybed in Weathered White and couldn't be happier with the style and color. It is light and airy looking on my three seasons porch for extra seating and great sleeping space for granddaughters' visits. Sure beats the dorm room look of other daybeds and it is much sturdier. Assembly was easy with two sets of hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old World Brown is a great color The color in the catalog is truer to the real item than the color it appears on my monitor. It's a nice medium brown, not as dark as it looks online. A couple of friends put it together, and one had a cast on her arm, so it couldn't have been too difficult. I bought a 15" deep mattress, which makes it sorta tall but looks great, and it's comfy to sleep on, especially with lots of pillows tucked into the corners and sides. Great with the 18' ceilings and tall floral drapes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful ... at last The Louis Daybed (without trundle) in "Old World Brown" is absolutely beautiful AND sturdy (I did buy a "bedboard" to add to the support of the French Grainsack cushion I purchased with it -- and can no longer find on this site -- but it is probably unnecessary). I put it together myself (!!), which was a bit laughable but very doable, and have added tons of random throw pillows to minimize the "bed" aspects. It is a stunning piece. The only problem was the repeated failure to receive all needed hardware, but Ballard ultimately addressed and fairly resolved the issue. This is, simply, an excellent piece of furniture, quite worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was just as pictured I love the look, size and design possibilities in using it in my living room (or bedroom if I choose).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from don't throw out the hardware! Two of my friends "helped me" assemble the bed - actually they did all the work. It's really a great piece of furniture. To address some of the problems others have had: it is easy to overlook the small bags of hardware included. One bag is in the crate with the back panel, and we almost discarded it. And when assembling, it's easier if you put the thing on its back while you screw in the platform. I knew I didn't want to put one of the current huge foot-thick mattresses on this, so bought one online made for a daybed. It's upholstered in black and white striped ticking and really sets off the piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we were looking for... This daybed went in my downstairs office (which we need to use as a guest room sometimes). We wanted something that looked nice enough for a semi-formal room in our house (most daybeds look like they belong in college dorm room; not this one). The quality matches up well with my ethan allen desk in the same room. Assembly was easy (my wife did it before I got home and I usually put everything together in our house). Internet pictures are good representation. We just used a twin mattress with no box spring or board underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Luis daybed is beautiful. I have been looking at the Louis daybed for more than a year and finally decided to order it on Cyber Monday. It is really beautiful and looks a lot more expensive than it was. It was fairly easy to assemble. It fits perfectly in my den where I wanted a daybed that looked more like a sofa. The Luis daybed surpassed my expectations!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, but don't try to put it together by yourself. Fortunately I had someone handy to help me put this together, as the front rail and the mattress support need to be finessed together at the same time. The daybed, which I am using mainly as a sofa, is beautiful and beautifully made. It is sturdy, but the sides and seat itself are much higher than I had imagined. I wouldn't trade it, but if you are using it as a seat, it is substantially sized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great looking I've been looking at this bed for a year and finally bought it after checking the reviews. It came in perfect condition except for a scratch on the front rail which they send a replacement for within a short period of time.If you following the directions it is simple to put together but you do need two people. I thought it was a little bulky looking but I am still very satisified with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bed, worth the backorder wait! What a great daybed and at such a reasonable price! Our new home has a very small bedroom and this is exactly what I wanted. The black was on backorder a couple months ago, but I knew I couldn't find anything better. This piece has the right amount of style and is well constructed for this price family--even better than I had hoped. As others mentioned, assembly is an activity for two, and the instructions were clear with every single tool needed included. All in all, a pleasant surprise in that the Louis daybed exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Bed but... Let me start by saying once you get the bed assembled it's beautiful. We ordered the black version. When we received the large box and started to put it together first of all we noticed that the black paint that is on the platform that holds the mattress, along with the matching black brackets, the paint was chipping off so much that it revealed a rusted piece of metal! As we went along with the assembly, it became obvious that all of the main hardware was missing! We had to call the customer service department to get the necessary hardware shipped.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adept assembler required. This daybed arrived in three boxes. "Some assembly required", said the description. Some? It took me and a friend almost 4 hours to put it together, including a call to customer service. The instructions on two sheets are confusing, mistakenly drawn in one section (dowel and screw placement reversed), and fixing the steel platform to the wooden frame was very frustrating and time-consuming. Three people are the correct number to put it together: two to insert and fix parts, and one to hold the platform at height. No single mattress has been ordered yet, but I'm worried it won't fit. Yes, the bed looks good, but you must have adept assemblers. And also, be aware, it is a BIG piece of furniture. It looks more modest in catalogue photographs. I recommend this, with caution.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Louis Daybed with Trundle I just ordered the Louis Daybed and trundle for our nursery and I love it - it looks great, is really sturdy and comfortable. My only complaint was that it was a little difficult to put together, took my husband a few hours. And I am not sure if it says it in the description of the product but the trundle does not pop up to the daybed height. And it's really nothing but a frame on wheels - if you're debating the trundle, I'd recommend to skip it as I am wishing I didn't order it now, unless you really need it. Also - it's difficult to find a mattress to fit on the trundle frame as I have a rug underneath the daybed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful piece of furniture My Louis daybed (I bought the black one w/o the trundle) looks beautiful in my living room! It was packaged very well and with care. I'm taking off one star because it's difficult to put together and the instructions became vague in some areas. You really need two people to put this together, and even with my bf (he's smart and very good with these things) it was difficult to get it right. I've had it for a few weeks and so far it's sturdy with no problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Weathered White is Not White I love the bed but it is not white. it is a creaming, light tan. i will be painting it as all my furniture is white in this room and this stands out like a sore thumb. Also, the assembly directions are great for the metal rack, but then nothing for the wooden part of the bed! It was a struggle to put together.
Date published: 2016-10-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Daybed is a piece of furniture and a piece of art. The bed was not difficult to put together and the pieces are well made. We love the detail. The trundle works well, but if you use a pillow top mattress you need to pick the bed up slightly to pull the trundle out.
Date published: 2012-12-27
Rated 4 out of 5 by from More Yellow than White Love the bed but the color is more yellow than white. I was looking for something more with white/taupe undertones.
Date published: 2015-10-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Daybed Very happy with our new daybed. Good quality construction. Just one small problem with the lower mattress being too thick to pull out from under the four legs. The one we have is a pillow top mattress, so we purchased some wood 'stilts' to put under the four legs, to raise the bed up about 4 inches, so that the lower mattress can be pulled out easily. The bed doesn't look as nice up on the four blocks, but it works!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful, but design issues The Louis daybed is beautiful aesthetically. Absolutely beuatiful. However, there is a major design flaw in that a standard twin mattress will not slide under the bed on the trundle. There needs to be notation in the specs that a low profile mattress is required for the trundle. Already bought the mattress, so now stuck with it and trying to raise the bed somehow. NOT GOOD! I could have purchased accordingly if it were noted in the info for this bed! Designing the bed to sit a couple of inches higher would not compromise the design of this bed. Not sure why it was designed to not accommodate a standard mattress on the trundle. Standard mattresses are what most people have.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful style with issues The visual design of this bed is beautiful. More style & sofa look than bed. The instructions did not match the hardware of the bed we received. Small mattresses are a necessity if you wish to not have to lift the bed off the floor to roll out the trundle. Smaller mattresses not an option if you desire comfort.
Date published: 2011-05-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Louis Daybed The daybed meets my expectation except for the assembly of the mattress metal frame. It was difficult to align the support poles into the metal frame.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Finish on wicker comes off Treat the wicker with a velvet glove. I've had this for less than a week and am already going to have to buy a touch up pen for where the finish on the wicker has come off.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The wrong color I have never been so disappointed with a purchase in my life. The color says antique white and all the pictures look like the bed is white with some tan distressing, maybe a slight ivory cast in some ligts but still white. In person it is YELLOW. Cream/light yellow. It is hideous and clashes with all my white furniture and I am so disappointed. The pictures are total misrepresentations and now I am stuck with a piece of furniture that to be happy with I am going to have to sand and refinish. It is so expensive to send back I don't think it's worth it but I feel like I threw away my money considering how much work I am going to have to put into a new piece of furniture to make it look the way I was expecting. If you want a white day bed look elsewhere and don't make my mistake. Apart from the color it is a pretty bed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gorgeous but breaks down after use The honey/black finish is beautiful, but after 3.5 years of use the link spring completely fell apart where the pieces were joined/poorly welded. After calling in, they said i could buy a new bed or replace the link spring. The bed is pricey, and I'd expect it to last a little longer than that. Not too pleased. The warranty was only a year. I'll have to purchase a new link spring and have the bed pulled apart to switch it out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from beautiful but not well made I have two comments that account for my unfavorable rating: 1) The daybed shipped without hardware, and we had to call to have the hardware shipped to us so we could put it together. Customer service was very helpful and friendly, but when the hardware came, washers were missing and the dowels did not even fit the slots in the bed. My husband went to the hardware store to buy additional washers and dowels to put the daybed together. 2) I purchased the Louis Daybed in black, and the black finish wore off in places on the caning just as we were putting it together. After the first time that we used it, more of the finish came off and exposed bare wood. We were not being rough with it at all, and it looks very worn very quickly.
