I have to say that I'm not easily sold, I've been eyeballing this bed for about 4 months and when it went on sale it was a no brainer. But when it finally arrived, I was blown away at the quality of it. I read a lot of the reviews and so many people had the same reaction that I had but when it came to the support of the bed that part was a joke! I couldn't believe a bed of that size with 4 toothpick slabs and 4 little pegs for so-called extra support. The next day I purchased 2 slabs of hardwood plywood and it was officially perfect. After putting just my mattress on top of my new foundation that's when I realized there was no need for a low profile box spring, if you do so, then the height of your bed will be above the footboard and to me that takes away the comtemporary look. My bed is totally the BOMB! If you are looking to give your bedroom a facelift then this is the bed for you!
