Buyers on Lea Elite Collections:
slats could be better
The Lea Elite Crossover Loft Bed is a highly functional piece of furniture intended to accommodate not only the sleeping, but -- optionally -- also the studying/storage requirements of a single child or a teenager. This arrangement provides a comfortable and trendy sleeping section up top, with enough space underneath for a child and even most adults to walk in comfortably, without stooping. This space can be utilized in a variety of ways; you can simply leave it empty, to be used as a play area, perhaps have it curtained off and make it into your child's very own little "house." Putting one of the dressers or the drawer chest from the Elite Crossover collection in there is another possibility, if solving storage issues is a priority. Most often, however, the space below the bed is used as a working/studying area; the simplest way to go about this is by ordering the optional Crossover Desk Top Panel -- which is really just a board that spans the entire width of the bed, thus providing an exceptionally large working space. Of course, you can also choose the Crossover Desk instead; with its 3 drawers on the side, a Bottom File Drawer and a Pullout Drop Down Keyboard Tray, it represents a much more comprehensive (but also more costly) solution.
Much has been said and written about the looks of the Elite Crossover collection. Influenced by the American Country, Arts and Crafts and Shaker styles, and finished with a darker burnished cherry color with lots of hand applied highlighting and accent -- which adds to the high style rustic feel -- this loft bed will visually enhance and ennoble any room you put it in.
Of course, the Elite Crossover Loft Bed also benefits from other strong points of Lea Elite collections: higher quality materials, multiple step finishing process, metal connectors featured throughout for strength and durability, slat roll mattress support -- and so on. To learn more about unique features of Lea Elite collections -- and also get some impression on how the actual users feel about them -- check our review of the Elite Classics bunk bed.
There is one more thing we feel needs to be mentioned: this loft bed has a somewhat unusual ladder placement, at the front/end/face of the bed. The ladder can be placed on either side of the bed, but still, make sure you won't have any placement/accessibility problems -- it might happen in a really really small room.
