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.

This is can make all the difference when you're working with tight or narrow spaces. Read More

What is a Murphy Bed?

Mar 23, 2008 5:00:00 PM

A Murphy Bed, also known as a wall bed, folding bed, or hide-a-bed is a functional furniture piece that can transform any room into a bedroom instantly. How? In its most basic form, a Murphy Bed is a bed that is stored vertically against a wall, but can be lowered quickly and easily into a fully functional bed when needed. The bed is contained within a cabinet when not engaged, providing a unique centerpiece to your room. These beds are able to utilize vertical space to store a bed without consuming valuable floor space. Therefore, they are the perfect addition to any room that you would like to double as a guest bedroom or for smaller bedrooms that have limited floor space. Read More

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.
