When Andrew and I become real adults within the next year, and move to a place where he will work a full time job, and we live in a fairly permanent residence, I plan to buy us a BED. Right now we have the most ghetto second hand metal frame & headboard, and our box spring makes us feel like we're sinking in the middle (isn't that what a box spring is supposed to prevent?). So I'm thinking it'll be high time when Andrew graduates and we pack up and leave (if not.. sooner.. muahaha) to invest in a REAL piece of furniture.
As far as budget is concerned, I'm thinking we'll still have to be modest on what we select, and what is more modest in the cost factor than Ikea, right? Anyway, I just received the catalog, and somewhat have fallen in love with their Edland 4 poster bed. See for yourself...
I love the thin lines, and the white-acrylic finish. Not to mention, it costs like a dollar! Well, you know what I mean. Anyway, I'm seriously considering it, although my mind will probably change a year from now..
What do you think? Are you a fan of 4 poster beds, or what? A part of me thinks drapery would be so fun to change up with this thing... but I have yet to know if Andrew would even go for such a bed. It might not be manly enough for him, although he has always loved my design/decor preferences (minus our second hand rocking love-seat.. which I LOVE!).. so who knows.
We shall see.
