    for that price rage, ikea would probably be your best bet. Sometimes you can find some pretty decent stuff on Craigslist too if you don't mind used

    it's not really something I would buy if I had a house that I owned, but for an apartment it works :dunno:

    probably truer than most, but to be honest, beds are huge, heavy and come in multiple pieces, so even good ones will take a beating from a move. I'd rather buy a $150 bed every time I move instead of lugging around a $1500 bed and watching it get trashed :hs:

    I'd save the expensive bed for when I buy a place and I know I'll be there for a while. The one I have my eye on (and will almost certainly NEVER be able to own) costs $5000 :(
