Need to invest in quality control.

From the front, this headboard looks very good. From the back, it looks like it was assembled in a hurry, at midnight, down a coal mine, by Ray Charles.
There are staples holding the cloth in place on the back panel, holding the cardboard corner-protectors on, holding the protective plastic cover in place and holding the outer parcel paper - all of them punched into the back panel at varying intervals and at various depths. Fetching out the unnecessary ones that aren't flush with the back panel led to a number of the staples snapping and leaving a piece of sharp metal proud of the panel that had to be hammered down.
And, of course, the holes drilled into the wooden uprights aren't quite in the right position to line up with the captive nuts in the back panel, leading to cross-threading and, in one case, a nut in the back panel choosing not to be held captive any more. The position of the locator nuts on the headboard are roughly indicated by circular stickers, though in two cases, the manufacturer obviously decided the stickers weren't sticky enough and so held them in place with more staples!
On the up-side, delivery was prompt and the item arrived undamaged.
