Dawson King Bed is rated 4.5455 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful, but huge! We went to the store to see the Dawson bed in person before purchasing it. It really is a gorgeous bed - solidly made, beautifully designed. We purchased the king size frame to go under our new mattress.I'm surprised that we're both finding the bed really imposing now that it's in our room. We had the king mattress (on the floor) for a few weeks prior, so it's not that a king doesn't fit in our room. However, the Dawson, because of the curved headboard, adds about a foot to the overall length of the bed. And the unbroken design of the headboard just seems REALLY imposing now that it's in place.The bed is really gorgeous, but we both regret the purchase somewhat. There's nothing wrong with the bed; it's more a matter of personal style. Given a second chance, we would choose a frame that was smaller and subtler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and sturdy After many sleepless nights due to a squeeky bed frame and box spring, decided it was time to spend some money, and it was worth it. The wood is very high quality and quite beautiful, we were pleasently surprised that the wood is much darker than appears on the website (had read that on another review and was keeping my fingers crossed). We did find out after the fact that we had to purchase an additional board for our Tempurpedic mattress to sit on, but our mattress is even more comfortable now!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Bed Extremely poor quality bed. Warped rails, warped foot board, warped head board, terrible finish quality and dowel hole don't line up. Stay away from any mango wood furniture that's not kiln dried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bed I went to my local Crate and Barrel store specifically to look at a different bed but this one looked so smart in person, I ordered it instead. The wood looks great, I like that it's solid wood with no varnish.I like it so much I also ordered the matching Dawson dresser and chest of drawers. Delivery was well organised, unfortunately the headboard was damaged during delivery but it is being replaced within a week.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but expected a better quality. I've shopped around for a bed frame for quite a long time. Was looking for a solid wood and a nice headboard. This bed matched all my must haves. I was especially happy to use a discount they ran that time. When we received the bed frame, we noticed right away that the parts don't fit very well and the colors don't match. The delivery guys did a good job, I think it's just how the bed is. It still looks pretty impressive in the bedroom and definetly looks like an expensive item, but if you look closer you can see how the parts dont connect well and the paint doesn't cover the headboard completely. Also the wood is very soft, we dropped something on the side of the frame and got a visible dent, so you gotta be careful. Despite all that's said, I'm still enjoying this bed frame. The headboard is awesome and I lean on it when reading every night, very comfortable!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bed had Beetle Infestation Feel I have to leave a review to warn others... it may have been a total fluke, but this bed had a powderpost beetle infestation that became noticeable a couple weeks after delivery (holes in headboard, wood dust piling up on floor beneath). According to a Crate Barrel phone rep after I described it, they had a problem with these with the same type of wood (mango wood) in a media center. So it may be limited to that type of wood.To be fair, customer service was very responsive, they picked up the bed fairly quickly with no delivery charge, and refunded the amount of the purchase with no arguments. But in good conscience I can't recommend this bed. You will be taking a risk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect choice I looked for several years to find a headboard and/or bedframe that would look gorgeous, be durable enough and could function in city apartments (meaning nothing too bulky or overwhelming). As luck would have it, I stumbled across the Dawson bed in C&B and fell in love immediately. It's a gorgeous color and great wood, has simple and clean lines, and is high enough off the bed I can store sweater boxes underneath the middle, pushed more to one side that it's not an unbecoming sight from my doorway.I'd recommend this bed for anyone considering it, and would purchase it again in a heartbeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bed! Great service! I searched all over the web as well as local stores to find a sleigh-style platform bed without a footboard in a dark mahogany finish. This is it! As described, it does have a grainy wood finish. It is a very deep espresso/mahogany color. It was delivered with impeccable care: No dings, scratches; white glove service set everything up and we tipped the delivery guys to move our 270lb latex mattress back onto the bed. I love that it is low-profile, so I don't need a step ladder to climb into bed. It matches our mahogany stained dresser from another company very well. This is not a bed that makes a huge statement, as there is very little of it that you actually see when the bedspread is on and there are pillows lining the back (we have 4 Euro pillows along the back). But, it is exactly what I wanted! And, I will also add that the customer service by C&B was excellent: They must have called me 4-5x to work out delivery arrangements and keep me updated as to the progress of delivery. Impressive!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous and sturdy. I love this bedset, and is a great set for the price and quality. It looks clean, is well-made and the color of the wood is beautiful. I purchased this sight unseen after thinking about it for about 6 months after seeing it online and after trying to find the PERFECT bedroom set for about the past 4 years. I had been having the issue where if I liked the bed, I didn't like the dresser, or vice versa, and I have a thing about things matching. It was difficult to find this item in stores to see beforehand so buying sight unseen was a big risk for me, but the only things I found not to be completely ideal were the fact the drawers are not soft-close, so you have to hold on to them or they clunk shut (but not in a cheap way, in a solid wood no soft-close mechanism type of way), and the drawers to the dresser are a bit on the small side, but other than that, I LOVE it and would highly recommend purchasing if you're thinking about getting this set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dawson Bed is Great! My husband and I had purchased a very nice bedroom set when we were married...then, with children, we found that a queen was not big enough! We spent several months looking for a king bed that would blend in nicely with the rest of our furniture, while updating our space to fit our needs. This bed is perfect! It is dark, but not too dark, the lines are clean, and it DOES NOT SQUEEK :) Perfect! And the delivery team was great, also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! The bed is simple and beautiful. It is much darker that the photo online; more like an espresso color which was really the color that I wanted. It is very sturdy and solid. I love the small curve to the headboard. This bed is also about 10" shorter than most of modified sleigh style beds which is great because it doesn't take up too much room. The bottom has enough room under it for storage. The delivery as usual was superb. I got the bunky board so that it would be easier to make the bed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this frame but... We bought this King size Dawson frame bed about a year ago and while I do love it I have two concerns.First, as another reviewer noted, dust likes to collect on the frame- almost like static electricity. However, this has gotten better over time- not sure what my cleaning ladies are doing but it's working.Secondly, and this is something that I've only realized over the past year, the Simmons Beautyrest King size mattress that we purchased does not quite fit the frame (about 3-5") so after a week or two of moving around, the mattress ends up pushed to the bottom of the bed creating a gap between the mattress and the headboard and allowing our Euro shams to fall in the gap. This really annoys me but I haven't yet figured out a DIY solution to put at the bottom of the bed to fill the gap. I might contact Crate and Barrel and see if they have any ideas or solutions for this.Otherwise I absolutely love the look of the bed and the quality!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bed! Our big splurge after we got married almost 2 years ago was this bed and a new latex mattress. We used the registry completion discount and a couple of gift cards to help pay for the bed. We wanted something that would match both antique and modern furniture (our apartment has a bit of a hodge-podge), and this fits the bill. My husband is 6'5" so we wanted something without a headboard. Good clearance below for storage boxes as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my bedroom! I purchased the king bed, two nightstands and the 6-drawer dresser last summer. I shopped for months for the perfect bedrrom set, and this certainly is it! The set is extremely well made. The wood is a gorgeous dark color and very solid. Another great Crate&Barrel purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bedroom My husband and I bought the bed last year and just had to complete the set because the pieces are so well-made. The bed is very simple and sophisticated; we put our own box spring under the mattress so the bed is a bit high but looks nice with a dust ruffle over it. We recently bought the 4- and 6-drawer chests: the drawers themselves have ample space and close very quietly. We got free in-home delivery and the deliverymen were timely and polite. Overall, great buy and great quality, I plan to have this set for years!
