The Ultimate Space Saver Murphy Beds
Murphy beds have been in existence since about 1900, when William L. Murphy invented the patented mechanism to hide his bed away in the closet of his one room apartment while he entertained. The beds have been in use ever since, always appreciated by city apartment dwellers and homeowners who needed an extra bed in a multipurpose room. Now, Murphy beds are experiencing resurgence, as professional people move back into the cities and make their smaller living spaces more functional. Murphy beds are space-saving bedding device that allows homeowners and apartment dwellers the opportunity to put more room to use. Essentially, Murphy beds can be lifted up from the foot of the bed, using the Murphy spring mechanism, and folded back into a closet-like storage area. With the beds now seemingly gone from the area, more room is available to the user for other purposes, such as eating or entertaining.
Murphy beds are amongst those unique and highly creative furniture pieces. These are also known as wall beds due to their design and flying beds due to their working mechanism. Wall beds give an illusion of armoire when closed and fixed against walls and they often add up to the interior decor of a room. While this is one of the basic designs in these beds which is still a big hit, you can find many more options in terms of style and design in these beds today.
