We ordered this platform bed with the 14" memory foam mattres and we love it. The drawers provide much needed storage space and also increase the height of the bed making it seem less like a "platform" bed. It was VERY easy to assemble although having two people certainly helps the process along. The only complaint I have about the bed is the rake. They have support bars that are supposed to keep the bed square (the corners at 90 degrees), but that is not always the case and if the bed is not sqaure, then the drawers have trouble opening up, that's why I gave workmanship a 3, if they could provide more stability, it wouldn't be an issue.
