While there are always exceptions, foundations (box springs) are generally a fraction of the cost of the mattress, so I would recommend going with one to preserve the life of the mattress and the manufacturer's warranty, unless you have a TRUE platform bed. You can always go with a low profile foundation, which decreases the total height by about 3.5 inches. A "platform style" bed is not necessarily a true platform, so you need to make sure you have the proper support. You spend a third of your life on your mattress, and your sleep quality affects the other two thirds, so it's an important decision.
