My bed tried to kill me.

Well, that's probably a bit overdramatic. Turns out, I have had a pretty bad allergic reaction to the new bed base I bought from Crate and Barrel. While I'm not asthmatic or otherwise super allergy-inclined, I do have bizarre chemical sensitivities to things like strong household cleaners, fresh house paint, new carpet etc. So when we bought a new bed, likely drenched in flame retardants and other nasties, and I slept on it for 7 or so hours each night, I began waking up with horrible headaches, body aches and general badness. And hey presto, when I began sleeping on the airbed in another room, I was fine.

Flash forward and we've sold the bed (yay and boo - it was beautiful, but lethal) and I'm looking for another base. I'm wondering about a wooden one, untreated (this one is beautiful and untreated) or perhaps a metal one? Anything without fabric. Any suggestions, dear readers? It's not especially heartening to see the metal and wood options out there, so thought I'd ask around...
