Style and functionality in one piece of furniture: Murphy Beds

Murphy Beds
Let's start from the beginning.
The wonderful Murphy Bed is named after William Lawrence Murphy (1876–1957), an Irish immigrant in New York who wanted to find a creative method of making space in his small apartment, applying for his first patents around 1900.
Funny story behind why he came up with the idea for the first Murphy Bed. Legend has it that, William Lawrence Murphy was wooing an opera singer back then, but imagine living in a one-room apartment in San Francisco city and with the moral code of the time frowned upon a woman entering a man's bedroom alone, he had it very difficult. So he came up with a marvelous invention/solution: the Murphy Bed  converting his bedroom into a parlor, enabling him to entertain without being judged. And in modern days where space is such a precious thing we thank him for it.

What is a Murphy Bed?

A Murphy bed (also known as a wall bed, fold-down bed or pull-down bed) is a bed that is hinged at one end to store vertically against the wall, or inside a closet or cabinet, saving you lots of much needed space. Since they often have a built-in sofa, desk or multiple storage solutions, Murphy Beds are considered a multifunctional piece of furniture.

How does a Murphy bed work?

A traditional Murphy bed is wall- or floor-mounted and uses elaborate springs and metal frames to raise and lower the mattress. Some even have a gas springs mechanism that enables safe unfolding, allowing easy opening and additionally protecting against accidental opening.On the other hand, some Murphy have cabinets on either side of the bed, or a sofa so the bed appears as a regular wall when in the upright position.

Are Murphy Beds comfortable? 

The answer to that is yes, murphy beds are as comfortable as any other type of bed. Once you have it installed and pulled down most Murphy beds can be equipped with the same mattresses as a regular bed. That being said, most people choose a memory foam mattress for their wall bed.
