When I first saw this Eventide frame I just wasn’t sure what to think of it. It was a box of metal and plastic brown parts with what looked like giant cocoa puffs sitting in the mix.
Now, I already know your first question. Is it worth the $239 we sell it for on our website? Yes! And most websites, especially big box stores, are charging up to $200 more.
My Thoughts on the Eventide Bed Frame by Knickerbocker
So, here’s an honest review of Knickerbocker’s Eventide bed frame:
Here’s why: It has an extremely modern, aesthetically pleasing appearance. To me personally the legs do sort of look like giant cocoa puffs, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing. Trust me when I say it’s a great conversation piece. This is what the wheel looks like:
The positive features of the bed frame
It fits all sizes! You can put it in a guest bed where bed sizing may change from time to time, or buy it for your son/daughter and adjust it as they grow.
It’s sturdy! It’s great for heavier weight limits, up to 2000 lbs!
No sharp edges. When you add the polyurethane encasement to each side of the frame, there are no sharp edges on this frame, making it a safe choice for diabetics.
It’s so easy to move! This is great for people who re-arrange a lot or people who like to get under the bed area for cleaning. In our store, we were able to move the entire frame with a mattress set (and one of co-workers) with a simple glide. (This might be considered a negative feature for some, see below.
Things you might not like about the Eventide Bed Frame
Since this is an honest review here are the cons: It was a little difficult to snap the plastic encasement on to the frame. We all gave it a good go, struggled quite a few minutes and then finally one of our male co-workers snapped it on. It takes a pretty firm hand.
It would be kind of difficult to put together completely on your own. I’m not by any means saying it’s impossible, but you may get frustrated and walk away a few times.
It’s very easy to slide! This is great for the movers and cleaners, but for a child or the elderly it may not be a perfect option.
I hope this review helps you make a decision! If you’re looking for an even more sturdy and easy to assemble frame try the Embrace! It’s amazing!! If I’m honest, I like it a little better but the Eventide is still awesome!
