I have shared in the past that I wanted to replace our master bed once we moved back to the States. Well here we are back in the States and the movers lost all the hardware to our old bed in the move. Perfect excuse to finally take the plunge on a new bed, or I could go to the hardware store and try to find the right bolts to keep the old one going a while longer but honestly which sound like more fun?
With a new bed on finally the horizon, I decided to revisit some of my dream beds from an earlier post, mostly upholstered. I’m still having concerns about having a fabric headboard around my husband’s oily skin and all the dust and dirt that comes with life but I was still leaning in that direction. I picked the one I liked best and showed it to my husband who promptly said he hated it! Now mind you, this is not a deciding vote since he lets me do whatever I want with the house but I do take his opinion into consideration ( a little.) Back to the drawing board…
After tons of shopping I found a bed I had not seen before on Overstock.
I am huge bamboo fan so why I had not seen this one before I don’t know. I must have been blinded by upholstery. At $785 including shipping this one was doable and so pretty. I did some research and found the Palm Bay on many sites from Amazon to One Kings Lane with prices ranging from $754 – $1,050

I love the style of the bed but I am worried about not seeing the finish it in person. They call it “toffee” but different photos cast it in a different hue. I don’t want an orange stain but there is no way to tell until I see it in person. I checked online and one of my local retailers sells Magnussen so I dropped by to see if they had one in stock. Sadly they did not did not but I found they are able to order it at only $699 including delivery. Oh the dilemma!
I figured maybe Pinterest might be able to help. I found a few photos that look like the same bed, but is it? Not sure if any of them are but one thing I know for sure now I REALLY want a faux bamboo bed. Bonus my husband like this one too!

Now I’m torn, do I take the plunge without seeing the bed in person or do I continue my hunt?
Might be making a trip to the furniture store today.
What would you do?
