For the past couple of months I've been sleeping on a mattress given to me by friends of friends, gradstudents. They'd gotten it used themselves, and had just bought a new bed. Twice they tried to give away the old one through Craigslist, but no takers. Probably because it has stains in all the right places. I took it, since I'd been sleeping on a camping mat and had conveniently stopped by w/ a moving truck when it was offered to me. Now I think it's time to get a new mattress, and probably a bed. Sleeping on the floor has been great, but I think it's time we got some distance. Still a bit scarred by the recent move and anticipating future moves, I'm looking for something lightweight but durable. I'm leaning toward the Min bed by DWR, currently on sale, but since I know virtually nothing about furniture, I thought I'd see what you guys thought. I'm pretty sold on getting a latex mattress, so I think it'd have to be a platform bed. Any recommendations?
