A Boost For Every Marriage

My husband and I have agreed that it's definitely time to upgrade our queen to a KING (yippee!!!). The Newport from William-Sonoma Home is currently the front runner. It's price is obviously making me trigger-shy, and it's not exactly what I'm looking for. I love the shape of the headboard but wish that the frame was less substantial & bulky. Have you seen any good alternatives?

I have to say, if I was looking at it I wouldn't worry too much about the frame size because it would be covered by some of the bedding so it wouldn't be too obtrusive. I think this pic accentuates the base by the way the bed is made, if that makes any sense. Have you seen it in person?

I do most of my shopping online and haven't had a chance to go there in person. I was thinking of only having the headboard upholstered to minimize the dust trapped in the the frame base's fabric. In any event the WS option is still too $$$ - bummer - it's beautiful!
