Review

The Berg Enterprise Collection differs from Berg's other collections in that it features bunk beds instead of loftbeds -- if we take the definition of a bunk bed to be two beds stacked one on top of another where the top bed cannot exist as an independent entity, that is, it cannot stand on its own. The design of the Enterprise Collection is stylish and practical, modern and fluid; it features what Berg calls a versatile wrap system, which can contain various items that fit in both girls' and boys' room: a vanity desk, bookcases, an entertainment center, display and book shelves. This wrap is size-adaptable, making it possible to create a configuration capable of fitting into most rooms and budgets. As is the case with nearly all Berg bunk beds, this collection too features their recognizable staircase which doubles as a storage area that holds four deep drawers. Additional two drawers that fit under the lower bed can be ordered as an option. You can also opt for a trundle bed instead to add an extra sleeping area -- a perfect solution for sleepovers.

Let's review some of the more interesting points of this collection.

Design -- there are plenty of research studies that link creative environment in childhood to success in later life. The properly designed furniture encourages and facilitates many of the behaviors that child psychologists believe are necessary for a child to become a well-rounded, confident adult. In other words, a growing child will develop into a better person if she or he is surrounded by loving people and supportive environment. Moms and dads are becoming increasingly aware of this fact; consequently, simply providing a bed, a dresser, a desk... is not enough anymore. Parents want furniture that can enhance and foster their child's psychological as well as physical needs -- not just any old bunkbed will do these days. Berg Furniture has been among the first to recognize the trend; the Enterprise line of bunk beds has been contrived to make children feel excited and happy; to help them be organized; to make them feel cozy and provide them with a place to socialize with friends and family.

Staircase -- Berg's signature feature, designed with safety and comfort in mind. The stairs have broad, generous stepping surfaces with non-slid treads plus a handrail, all of which allows for a comfortable and safe access to the top bed. In addition, each of the stairs provides extra storage by housing a deep, spacious drawer. The staircase can be positioned at either side of the bed.

Desk -- the spacious Enterprise desk offers a comfortable study area and features 3 desk drawers, a keyboard tray, a computer tower storage and a (book)shelf. Included also is a fluorescent light bar. Note: the desk end is not universal, meaning there are two versions of the desk that fit either the left or right side of the bed, so you need to decide which one you want before ordering. Your decision will likely depend on where the bed will be placed; it's probably not a good idea for the desk end to face the corner or be too close to a wall, as this would create accessibility problems. Note that some stores let you choose the version you want from a drop-down menu, while others have special pages set for each configuration. There are a couple of images in the column to the right (scroll to bottom) that show this bed configuration from the desk side - Click to Enlarge.

Storage -- the Enterprise bunk beds offer some basic storage. The least you get are four drawers in the stairs plus three drawers in the desk. Optional two under bed drawers are also available at extra charge.

Sturdiness -- kids like to play, and in their play they can get carried away and subject the bunk bed to a considerable stress. Children's furniture should therefore be designed to withstand any such strains and at Berg Furniture they are aware of that. Their conviction is that the most suitable material for the job is engineered wood; it is a natural and organic product, the result of decades of research and development and designed with attributes not found in solid wood; it provides consistent, uniform strength and is highly resistant to warping, cracking, and splitting -- solid wood, on the other hand, can have voids, knots, and other imperfections. Material, however, is only a part of what makes any structure sturdy; design is equally as important and Berg's products, with their wide boards and surfaces and fortress-like built-in chests, stairs and desks make for compact, heavy and, well, sturdy formations.

Made in the USA -- buying products made in the USA keeps American workers employed; working people pay taxes and contribute to the social security system and have money to spend which helps invigorate the economy and strengthen America as a nation. Furthermore, American products are manufactured to meet a code of standards; these regulations are designed to keep the consumer safe and provide the high level of quality that shoppers rightfully expect.

So, what do users have to say about this bed? We haven't been able to find enough user comments on Enterprise collection to be able to form a valid assessment on it, but there is plenty of buyer accounts on other Berg products and we can probably safely assume that those findings apply to this collection as well.

The Good

Attractive design -- Berg Furniture makes good looking products, there is hardly any question about that, and the user base concurs unanimously. Excellent design; best design; bed looks fantastic and everyone comments on it; pictures do not do this bed any justice -- these are just a few among many remarks concerning the looks of Berg Furniture loft and bunk beds.

Safety -- Berg's bunk beds are considered among the safest in the whole bunk/loft bed arena thanks to their signature staircase which is included with almost every product. In fact, many buyers assert that the staircase played a crucial role in their decision to get a Berg product. They tout stairs as a safe alternative to beds with ladders; proclaim the stairs are very safe for the young ones that have to get up and down in the middle of the night -- in short, the staircase is viewed as a major safety feature.

Durability -- if it's to believe the actual users, Berg produces some super sturdy and durable furniture. Not surprising, considering the wide surfaces and fortress-like appearance of their formations. Very sturdy; well made; very durable; solid construction -- these are typical comments from average buyers. Some go a bit further to attest that the construction stands up to abuse given by their children, and even testify that it has proven to be very sturdy over the years.

The Not So Good

Negative comments on Berg Furniture loft beds are not very common. There are some grievances about the cost; mostly, buyers complain they were enticed into spending more than they intended. A few reviewers expressed a disappointment with Berg's choice of material, due to their belief that engineered wood was inferior to solid wood. Difficulties in changing sheets also get mentioned from time to time, and an occasional buyer finds fault in Berg's products' weight and unwieldiness.

Bottom Line

To sum it up, Berg Furniture bunk beds are considered: attractive; comfortable; durable; safer to use than conventional bunk beds due to the use of staircase instead of ladder. They are also a bit pricier than your average bunk bed, but if you can afford one, they do come highly recommended.
