This bed absolutely requires a box spring. In no way is that optional. Nowhere in the description is this specified. No, your foam mattress will not just sit on it. If you want to use this bed, you have to get a box spring. I won't fault the bed for this lack of information, but this is likely the last bed that I'll buy from Overstock.com. Yes, it says that the box spring is not included, but given that this is a bed with a frame, one could think that would mean that it can support a mattress. This is simply not true. I had the thing put together in probably 20 minutes. Looks great, except that the mattress will slip through the frame. Maybe it's the foam mattress that isn't exactly queen sized, but regardless it will simply not stay in the frame. All "O.co" (HATE this, btw) needs to do is put on their beds whether or not they are usable without a box spring, and I'm sure I'm not the only one that would greatly appreciate this kind of information.
