Good Questions: Ikea Sultan Alsarp Good or Bad?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

we’re up against a storage rock and hard place. has anyone bought or researched the ikea ‘matress base’ called sultan alsarp? besides the wicked arabian/scandanavian name, it promises flip-up storage galore. but since we’ve all been through ikea’s idea of quality and probably recycled it on the sidewalk, we’re wondering if this sultan is worth the 300 bucks for the queen size.

alternatively, if anyone has looked into the product and found something else, we’d love to hear about it. Thanks, alex

Dear Alex,

We don’t know about this personally and we’re sorry we couldn’t find it in the online website shop.

Anyone got a lead on this???
