Brought this bed for my back pain. It is great and goes perfect with the 100% cotton futon mattress I order for it. I also brought a pair tatami (36 In wide) for more support. If you are looking for a mattress to go with this bed, you should consider futon, it is all natural and very affordable. I paid less the $*** for a pair of twin size futons which is 8 inches thick and weight 59 lb each. They coast less than one king size mattress. Another reason I bought the two twins instead of a King size mattress is that it is much easier to move it. The twin is 5 inches shorter than the king, but if you leave a few inches at the top and a few at the bottom, it just fine. I am a Chinese American, this bed brings back a lots of memories. This is the kind of bed most of the Chinese family are still using today. The only difference is this bed is little lower and only has strips of boards for support.
My former bedroom suite was my Grandparents 1st pieces of furniture as newlyweds and thought I loved the sentiment and simple mid century design... I needed something that was soft, beautiful, modern and had some "pop" to it. I love the design and of course felt like I was getting a great deal for such a solid piece of furniture. My only con- which is completely fine is that I thought the fabric was a soft flannel/brushed cotton but its a courser chambray style fabric. Still love it!
Purchased for my guestroom, it's very sturdy and was easy to assemble. I use it with a mattress and bunkie board (no box spring). I like it a lot with the Nautica Belle Isle Cotton Quilt I also purchase from Overstock.
I love this bed and I hope it holds up as it doesn't seem terribly sturdy but looks good. I wish the fabric had cotton in it but I'm pretty sure it's all polyester as so many of these pieces are today. It's a great statement piece and my friend said with her mattress on it (she spends weekends with me and put her mattress in this guest room that she uses), it is much more comfortable than it was on her box spring.
