The Modern Murphy Bed

by Gillian

I recently found myself in the ResourceFurniture showroom in midtown and was amazed at how incredible ALL of their stuff is. This showroom carries modern furniture from mostly Italian designers that has the “ability to transform a space with both beauty and functionality.” Almost every piece can transform into something else and becomes multi-functional which for small spaces can be life changing.

Some of my favorite pieces were for kid’s rooms. With the slightest pull of a concealed lever what looks like a wall opens up to become bunk beds! The front panel comes in several standard finishes but can also be customized with a pattern like the Lollisoft SDĀ  shown here:

On the top of the unit is a flip-up shelf for linen storage.

The headboard flips up and folds down easily when stored.

The top rails also collapse and open in a snap, and the ladder just clicks right on.

Probably my favorite feature of the bed though, is that the top bed comes down at an angle making it easier to change the bedding. Is that insanely brilliant or what??

Here’s a single bed version with a desk unit that rises up from its standard position, and a twin bed that folds out below. No need to remove items from the desk top before opening the bed – everything will stay in place.

These pieces are high-end and look very well made. If you are working with a small space, or if you have a lot of guests who plan on staying with you I would strongly recommend that you look into this company. I can’t wait to use them for future projects.
