Dear AT - Help! I need a bed. I've been searching high & low for a new bed for my recent move and seem to be turning up empty on anything under $1200. I'm looking for something low, wooden (not crucial), and modern. Yes, there is IKEA, but I don't know if I can stomach it. I love the "Lowry" from Room & Board, but it seems like a bit much. There is also the "Laguna" from the Ty Pennington collection at Sears, but it seems like some readers don't think the quality is very good. Can anyone recommend good local places or anything they know of to help me? Thanks! Scott Hi Ted, We know you're wary of Ikea, but their Malm series can be very unobtrusive and clean.
