Tarva bed w/ Lonset Slatted base. Hard to assemble but worth itPatricia C.Thank God for Youtube, this is what made assembly possible, along with buying the Allen wrench type drill bits and correct size philips head drill bits for power screwdriver. I started off using manual tools and way to hard on the hands and fingers. Must have proper power tools, then it will go much faster and easier. Also the right and left side panels of bed I originally installed upside down, these pieces not marked in any way, must pay close attention to correct direction, or the mattress ends up sitting too high. Then, once assembled, I stained the frame walnut. It would have been better to stain the pieces prior to assembly. More detailed instructions from Ikea would have been really helpful. The Lonset slats were also time consuming, the Youtube video again was super helpful and worth it to get these upgraded slats. Although it was difficult and time consuming, in the end very happy with the bed, very sturdy, comfortable and looks great.
Squeaking SoundFernando A.I move a lot before sleep. After months of use the bed started to make squeaking sounds maybe due to loose screws. At the begging adjusting the screws made the sound go away. But know even after adjusting the screws the sounds continues. It has been affecting my sleep for months. Assembling was also a pain. Too many screws.
Pieces missingJenn J.According to the parts list and my count, the kit for the full size frame comes with 43 of the wood dowels for joining the pieces. However, by my count of empty holes this is five dowels short of what is required to put the frame together per the instructions. I'm very disappointed to have to make a trip to the hardware store for this. Other than this I'm sure that the frame will function well.
Not the greatest, but not the worstLili C.I've had this bed for almost a year now and it's just okay. If I could go back, I wouldn't purchase it again. It's not very sturdy and I'm constantly having to readjust the slats. Also, it just seems a little too big for my mattress (even though they are the same size) so I'm constantly having to readjust the mattress as it slides away from the headboard. I also have to tighten the screws fairly often. I did pay $200 for the frame, so I'm going to keep it purely because that is a lot of money. It's not bad enough that I feel like I need to immediately spend hundreds of dollars on a new one, but I also don't think it is worth that amount of money. It was also extremely difficult to assemble.
shifty slatsMitchell J.The frame isn't sturdy, I believe instead of having separate slats, it should be a singular foldable slat.
Also, the slat should be able to attach itself to the bedframe, once you move, they move and can cause a break in the side panels of the bedframe.
I think is a veryLuisI think is a very good product and it’s affordable.
Would give 0 stars if possibleChloe D.Do NOT buy this bed. How it made it beyond the testing phase is beyond me. the "support" on this bed frame constantly falls down, leaving you crashing down to the floor in the middle of the night. the wooden slats are a disaster. Wouldnt gives this bed to my worst enemy. If only this was a fraction as good as the veggie balls...
Tarva ReviewJ C.I love the simple design of the bed frame, and the easy assembly made the purchase worthwhile. All the joints fit together snuggly, and it seems sturdy.
Tarva BedDONNABed is very nice looking and was easy to put together. Only problem is foot rail where legs attach. The tops of these legs are a source of injured knees. I try and keep a folded blanket across bottom of bed.
I like itChristineThe bed frame is simple, and natural pine. I like the slatted headboard. Unfortunately, one of the screws fell out, but I figured out how to replace it. I didn’t think that should have happened, given that I had the bed for one week.
The other thing about IKEA is that their pricing is deceiving. You basically have to pay for every piece in order to put the bed together.
Very simple and easy toLeahVery simple and easy to assemble and I am very happy with this purchase and the price is great.
Very attractive! hard to assembleEllenI really love the look of this frame -- it is a a lovely piece of furniture. One star off for the difficulty of assembly and poor instructions, particularly for the long metal rods under the slats -- what are they even for? they certainly didn't stay in place.
Exactly what I needed!KRISTYI have a 600sq ft studio, I need an open frame, light weight and easy to assemble. IKEA is ALWAYS the go to store! The frame clearance is great for storage. And when I move I can take my time and stain it!!
I love the natural look.LETICIAI love the natural look. It takes 2 people to assemble the bed. I love my bed frame.
I've had this frame for 5 years!Gratias S.I originally bought this bed frame in late 2018. It is 2023 and 5 years later and this frame is still alive and kicking. It's survived 2 disassembly's and assemblies from 2 moves and is still holding up. I've had to order spare parts due to my own negligence on part of the assembly, but other than that, this product is still serving me well. I plan to get the same bed frame when I upgrade my mattress. Would recommend 10/10! Just follow the instructions and ensure you tighten all the parts correctly and you will be fine!
Easy to assemble and looksSusanEasy to assemble and looks great!
Do not buy!Carolina D.We bought this bed frame and it broke within the first few months. We called to get replacement parts, but we didn’t know we needed to keep the recipes. They tried to look it up with our card number, but we had changed our card number. There was nothing that could have been done. We tried fixing it ourselves, and it only lasted a another 9 months. Now we have a bed frame that keeps breaking in different parts. It’s so fragile, I wouldn’t recommend.
FirewoodKim L.We love the simplicity however it sags in the middle. You can see in the picture that the support boards are beveled which leads to the middle sagging. Not sure who the brains behind that one was but we now have 300$ firewood and kinked necks.
GreatSUSANBed is great, albeit low but love the unfinished wood
Great buy!CUTHBERTNice simple design that looks great in my sons’ room!
