check out charlesprogers.com. I particularly like the "tiger mohogany" platform they have.

your frame doesn't have to be pretty, unless you want it to be. If you got the ends, I don't see why you can't get something nice now that you can carry into the first years of your marriage. I imagine when that time comes you got more important things to worry about than buying a new bed.

But buy a good mattress. You spend a 1/3 of your life on that thing. I have a mattress I bought about 8 years ago. I have it on an Ikea platform bed. i never flip the damn thing. I'm pretty sure that piece of crap has screwed my shoulder and my back.

I just bought a tempurpedic, but haven't had a chance to use it yet (in the middle of a move).

Good luck!

Thanks for all the suggestions so far. Still haven't bought anything. Really like that platform bed too, TR.

i got a dude by the side of the road to make my bed from steel i bought scrap. I think I paid him 25 bucks (and another 12 for the steel). Guy who normally welds up holes in motorbike mufflers. Was quite the experience. It was a knockoff of something someone posted on here a while back. Found the thread, but the link to the pic is gone unfortunately.

Drive to New Hope, PA and buy a Nakashima platform bed. Every few years, buy another piece of Nakashima for your bedroom. In a decade or so you'll be rollin' deep.

If you want visually minimalist, why not just buy one of the box-sprung mattresses that are designed to be fitted with wooden legs to form a complete bed? Add a top mattress and you have something very comfortable, visually minimalist and space efficient. Ikea do a range of these.

These are some of the things I sell. Very good quality. I'm not sure whether they're sold where you live but may be it's nice for some inspiration.

A frame for $700?

You do know that if you just buy a mattress they will give you a metal frame for free?

since you are single, I'd recommend just a good enough mattress with the generic frame. Once you get married, let the Mrs. do the picking.

Fok that.

Shiki futons, and yeah I sleep on them. (I live by myself in a small room though)

Here is where I bought mine from. You do have to get a thicker pillow to adjust for the thinness of the bed, but I find it entirely sufficient for my needs.

I worked for a retailer for 11 years and the products are a bit pricey but cool designs.


Bo concept, a little overpriced but still very cool.
