This Platform Bed from Fashion Bed Group has a black finish.
The Murray is just a bare bones platform box, designed to be used with a
mattress only, without attaching a headboard. It is a minimalistic,
contemporary bed, sold at a promotional price. This bed is perfect for a
recent college grad or city dweller with limited space.
We love this bed and it looks even better in real life than in the pictures. So easy to assemble and very sturdy!

I was looking for a cheaper platform bed so that I didn't have to buy the $500 foundation to go with my king size tempur-pedic mattress. I purchased this because it had decent reviews....and boy was I surprised. Much better quality than I expected. If you are looking for a simple yet sturdy platform bed look no further. I saw one review that said you could see the extra support legs underneath the mattress. This is not the case at all on mine...unless you get on the floor and look under the bed. Overall a great bed for the price. I would definitely purchase this over again if I had to.
I purchased this bed as an inexpensive solution to the queen box spring not fitting up the stairs at my new home. I love it. It looks nice, is real wood and a nice size. The set up was very simple and went very fast. I love it!
This is a decent simple bed, well made. One thing they don't show in the photograph though is another set of legs under the middle of the bed. Those are not finished and may be noticeable. Also, the side table is clearly overpriced.
I'd just like to confirm the good reviews and add just a thing or two. Very nice bed for the money and would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a quality, stylish, minimalist bed. The things to add are this: 1. The slats themselves do sit 6" off the floor, but if you want to slide anything under the bed you only have just over 5" of clearance under the rails from outside the bed. Be aware of that if you want to put storage beneath it (I still can't find any bins I like that are that low profile). I suppose you could put lifts under the legs, but I don't know that I'd like the look. 2. Some of the places where the slats are to be screwed to the side rails are not pre-drilled, but the screws are self starting so it becomes a non-issue. However, because the majority of slats are not screwed in at all, you will sometimes get a *clack* when you flop into bed as the slats contact the rail. A very minor annoyance, but I plan on matching up the screws, drilling some pilot holes, and screwing them all down. Do this once the bed is completely assembled (and after their pre-drilled sites are screwed in to assure proper allignment) and your bed will be completely solid and silent. 3. The only minor screw-up I had when assembling this bed was not realizing the bolts holding the head/foot boards to the side rails get two washers—one flat, one locking. Had to go around and take each out and fix the oversight, but even then it only took about an hour to assemble on my own, not counting unboxing and a quick wipe-down of the components (damn styrofoam....grrr). Easier with two people, but most certainly doable with one if you are at all mechanical. Again, very good value for the money...recommended!!!
