The sides have various rails, brackets, faux bamboo and stylishly carved mythical figures. There is also a section with 2 large drawers and 2 shorter ones, above typical Chinese open fretwork. All stands on 2 profusely carved cabriole legs at the front, and simple rectangular feet in the centre at the back. The bed has flat panels to lay the mattress on and comes with a mattress.
