According to Company roll out Murphy bed, William L. Murphy and his wife live in a one-room apartment in San Francisco around the turn of the century. Because their standard bed occupies most of the floor space. It begins experimenting with the design of the folding bed and finally patenting the ‘Murphy Bed’.
Recently we were asked to design rooms that include roll out Murphy bed, and have found them very useful. Whether it’s changing the office, the TV room or the library into a bedroom. It can be an elegant solution and often works better than pulling out a couch. The popularity of this bed has melted and faded in decades since its creation by its peak in the 1920s and 1930s. The greatest need for sleep is when there is the greatest need for efficient space use.
Today, instead of adding space, it is far more cost-effective (and effective space) to create a versatile space, which is in the pull of the frame into a bedroom. We were thrilled with the entertainment room we designed to watch programs on the big screen TV, which quickly switched to the bedroom where the ‘game watchers’ could sleep. The residents of the narrow city apartment have long been the main consumers roll out Murphy bed. Yet we have seen holiday owners take advantage of Mr. Murphy’s invention on a large scale.
