We bought two of these Tyrol platform beds and have been delighted with them! They arrived promptly and assembly was easy. They come with slats and we put a memory foam mattress straight on top and are now very solid, comfortable, nice looking beds. We like the look of the headboard and footboard as we didn't want anything too heavy in the room. You can add a bedskirt or not and they look equally nice. In the past we have had to add a headboard or a footboard to a bed and they are never stable. These are fixed and nothing moves when you lean on them for sitting up in bed, reading! I would definitely buy these beds again and would recommend them to a friend.
