This week a friend of mine is bed shopping, looking for a place to rest her head in her new apartment. As all cool folks know, she’s using Craigslist DC to scout out the best deals, and she keeps sending me Craigslist posts asking if this bed or that one looks sturdy yet stylish.
Me, I’m clueless on style, which is why I only bed shop at College Park IKEA (they deliver!). I do have one recommendation for her bed frames odyssey. Look at the way the headboard and footboard connect to the frame. Think about the force that will be applied to that connection in the heat of passion and ask yourself: “Will that hold when I’m screaming his name?”
