As someone who loves furniture, decorating, and moving, I can tell you, I've owned a lot of bed frames. I recently moved, and was on the lookout for something new. This time around, I had one requirement: something functional. I'm planning on moving again soon, and I wanted something easy to take apart and put back together. Behold, I found the Elephant in a Box Bed ($399). It stuck out to me for many reasons: firstly, it's genius design.
The brand initially gained recognition for its popular sofas that come in a box — think the Casper of sofas. Its newest bed frames have the same concept, and that's what sold me. To me, nothing is easier than a compact, quick, and easy setup. I ordered mine with the matching headboard ($199), and couldn't be happier with the experience.
The trust test was putting it together, and it passed with flying colors. It's made with an accordion style base that simply stretches out and you attach its side boards. Then you place a top on it, and then a cover to hold it all together. There's even an easy-to-watch instructional video which made it even more seamless. While this setup might sound minimal, it doesn't lack in strength and quality. The brand boasts that the bed frame can hold up to 8,000 pounds, and while I don't come close to that, I can tell you it feels sturdy enough to jump on.
All in all, this is a purchase I'd make again, but luckily I won't have to because it's made to last.
Lastly, this bed frame is actually affordable. When I was shopping, so many options in similar styles, and with more stressful setups, were at least double the price. All in all, this is a purchase I'd make again, but luckily I won't have to because it's made to last. For my next move, all I have to do it is take it apart, and put it back in a box. Easy and convenient, what else could you ask for? Keep reading to shop its separate pieces.
