We have only had the bed for a few weeks but we've been nothing but pleased. The bed was quite easy to assemble. There was a moment of panic when we bought the beige one and it came looking very light grey, I'm honestly not sure why it's considered beige but the closer we looked at the pictures shown for the 'beige' bed it was depicted correctly as in it really is more grey than beige, and it still worked fine in our scheme for the bedroom so it ended up being nothing too earth shattering. We have read on other reviews that pilling may happen but that didn't sway us as we have a de-piller and I doubt we'll be rubbing up against the fabric that much. We also read other reviewers added extra reinforcement by putting plywood between the mattress and slats so we anticipate possibly doing that one day but didn't think it was necessary immediately. Overall were psyched with the bed for the price and style!
