There is much to love about our company, but it is hearing from our customers that matters the most. We understand that buying a Murphy bed is more than a purchase. It is an investment in your home and we always want to hear how your Murphy bed from the Wall Bed factory is working out.

We are proud of our reputation in this industry and are constantly striving to improve even more. It is your feedback that matters, from your overall customer service experience to the quality of the product itself. Our customers are what keeps us moving forward.

Here are some more testimonials we are proud to share with you. It is refreshing to see that people all over the United States are giving Wall Bed Factory the "Thumbs-Up":


"I just wanted to add the color of the unit is perfect, a great match to the cherry colored desk I bought for my husband. Thanks for your follow-up and please call/email if you need more information. My husband added a comment that overall he is very pleased with the workmanship of the bed and bookshelves. and the care you have taken in packing and shipping your furniture. He is a weekend carpenter himself and sets a pretty high standard."
- Gloria -- Raleigh NC

"Thank you so much for your professionalism from start to finish on this project. The Murphy Bed came out beautiful! We are looking forward to our Thanksgiving company using it the next week..."
- Melissa -- Shapesburg GA

"Just wanted you to know I finally have my murphy bed installed and it works and looks wonderful. You have a great company the shipping was great, no damages and your product is first class. If I am ever in need or anyone else I know needs a murphy bed I will recommend your company. Thanks!"
- Jeaneen -- Charlotte MI

"We have had our horizontal murphy bed now for 4 months. My uncle was staying with us in Hawaii for the winter and he enjoyed the bed. It is a solid heavy bed and the instructions were easy to follow. It looks great and quite functional for our needs as we get many extra guests, but when not in use the table doubles as a sewing table. I am really pleased with the quality and even the shipping crate was impressive as well. Nothing was damaged and it looks great. I also appreciated that your company gave me a discounted shipping rate to Hawaii when you were offering free shipping on the mainland. Your shipping costs and quality of construction really made the decision for us to choose your bed. Many other companies charge over $900.00 dollars plus for shipping in addition to the bed so I am just so pleased with the whole process and the end result."
- Brianna -- Kapolei, HI

"We just wanted to send a quick email to tell you all how pleased we are with our wallbeds. You were great to work with, the beds are so well-made, Jay did a wonderful job with the installation! We are very satisfied customers and just wanted to let you know that, especially these days when quality products and good customer service seem to be the exception. You can expect enthusiastic and glowing reviews and referrals."
- John and Cindy -- Olympia WA

“We encourage customers to be as open as they like with their feedback, it helps potential customers make educated decisions and it helps us get better.” -CEO and founder of Old Creek Wall Bed Factory

Anyone who has ever bought a Murphy bed from us knows that we have a long history of providing exquisite quality with exceptional value to our customers. We want to provide more than just furniture to our customers. Our goal is to inspire your home & maximize your space, and we want to know how we are doing! Here are some real reviews from happy customers:

"Love our wall bed. Makes a perfect guest room. Old Creek was great to deal with -- very helpful and accommodating." -Posted on our Facebook page by Marian

"The best thing we ever did was install our Wall Bed and turn one of the spare bedrooms into an Office/Guest Room. We LOVE it! Gives us so much more space now!" -Posted on our Facebook page by Anne

"I received my bed yesterday. It arrived as promised. I was impressed with the packaging when it came out of the truck. After uncrating it it only took about 1.5 hours to assemble. All of the parts were there and everything was in great shape. I point this out because I purchased the NOIR floor model. I have been impressed with your company and am happy to tell all of my friends where I purchased the bed. It looks great" - Email from Mike

"This bed solved our guest room problem - we wanted a comfortable bed that didn't take up too much space when not in use. It is easy to put up and down and is very comfortable to sleep on - we know because we slept on it for a week while our master bedroom floor was redone. It was easy to install and looks great. The only problem we've had with it is the sharp corners when the bed is down - you need to watch your shins a bit when walking around it. We have corner protectors on it."- Email from Anonymous Customer 

"..I just wanted to add that I was really pleased with the customer service (I wish I could remember the name of the woman I dealt with - she was terrific) - our beds were shipped to Miami for onward transport to the Cayman Islands and all of our requests for documentation were handled perfectly so the customs brokerage and shipping went very smoothly. Many companies immediately bristle when they find out that we need onward shipping and have overseas credit cards, but Old Creek said "no problem" and made the extra effort to do the necessary confirmations etc. to make sure that it wasn't. We love our bed, and the other bed was for friends here in Cayman - they love theirs too."- Email from Anonymous Customer 

We encourage potential Murphy bed buyers to be sure to read our reviews and make a decision on whether this is the right bed for your home.

If you have feedback for us, email us at contact@wallbedfactory.com or post on our Facebook page.

Mar 9, 2011 12:29:59 PM

Don't you just love our new design? We poured a lot of energy into creating our newest Murphy bed and we sure hope you like it. The Farmhouse Murphy bed has been in the making for over 3 months. We went through endless revision with our designers and engineer before we got it just perfect.

Farmhouse Murphy bed

Our Farmhouse Murphy bed is currently on pre-sale until March 31st (when it officially debuts).

Customers who buy during the pre-sale will save $300 off the full retail price.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the Farmhouse, the pre-sale or anything else you may happen to think of!

Why choose a Horizontal Murphy bed?

Feb 17, 2011 3:11:35 PM

Horizontal Murphy beds are great for people looking to add a Murphy bed but ceiling height or room space is a problem. With most horizontal Murphy beds the projection is typically the same as the width on a queen sized mattress, approximately 64", whereas a vertical Murphy bed has a projection of about 84". This is can make all the difference when you're working with tight or narrow spaces. Read More

Mar 23, 2008 5:00:00 PM

History of Murphy Beds

Mar 11, 2007 6:23:00 AM

Murphy Beds, the bedding idea of 1900 was invented by American William Lawrence Murphy (1876–1959) from San Francisco. The original space-saving Murphy Bed would fold into a wall closet. Murphy patented his “In-A-Dor” bed in 1908 and in 1918, he introduced the pivot bed that pivoted on a doorjamb of a dressing closet, and then lowered into a sleeping position - some of which are still in use today.Since the original wall bed in 1900, Murphy Beds have undergone quite a bit of renovation. Today, you can purchase a Murphy Bed equipped with technically advanced air pistons, which are far superior to the old spring mechanism (Learn more about air pistons in our Buyers Guide). Murphy Beds today also function as an integral part of your home’s furnishings, being offered in beautiful woods, finishes and styles. No longer do you need to hide them away in your closets, losing additional storage space.
