Modern Murphy Beds

Darrell pointed me to these modern Murphy beds that would work really great in a very small space.  These are European designed, functional change furniture. They use a unique “intuitive Lift Mechanism” and are easy and safe to operate. They are made of strong metal and wood frames support a comfort mattress.

These modern Murphy beds are made in Italy and shipped to Denver, Colorado at a company called Flying Beds. These Murphy beds are not cheap but would be a very worthwhile investment for your small space.

Tama Desk Bed

The Tama Desk Bed above is made of embossed aluminum metal frame houses wood slat foundation for mattress. Just one simple movement without moving anything from the swinging shelf, lowers the bed. (Even the computer can rest while you sleep.) Wall fastening is mandatory. It comes in Double and Queen size.

Mr. Hide Sofa

Mr. Hide Sofa

The most unique Sofa in Europe. Comfortable to sit on or sleep in. The sofa seats three comfortably and transforms into a bunk bed when required. A simple intuitive and safe mechanism permits super imposing the second bed on the sofa.
Cushions come with fully removable fabric covers for easy cleaning. Embossed aluminum color metal structure has slatted base and incorporated ladder. The sofa features a practical storage compartment for bedding.

The Twirly Bed

The Twirly Bed

This is an amazing bed that stores into only 22″ depth! That allows for 9″ deep shelves. When the table is lowered, it becomes almost 5 feet in length! The mattress is European in firmness. Shown here in Walnut melamine.
Straight from Hollywood. Queen bed disappears and becomes an extra length work table. Bed is stored away fully made. Inutitive lift system is fingertip ease operation.Wall fastening mandatory. 

The Computer Bed "The Tale"

The Computer Bed "The Tale"

The Computer Bed “The Tale” is in the popular computer bed format. The advantage of a metal bed frame and wooden slat foundation. Operation is from gas assisted pistons often referred to as intuitive in nature. In reality the gas piston dampens the natural action of weight transfer from bed to desk to bed. We love this transfer of responsibility. It is the Murphy Bed concept to perfection.

I’ve actually been eying the two desk versions you have above for my little place. I’ve been wondering, though, how much stuff might fall off the shelves as you shift to the bed. Plus, it seems like you’d have to be careful with cables/cords if you had a computer on the desk. I agree that they’re really clever, though!

    I don’t have any personal experience with them, but those are good questions to ask and to check out when you actually go to purchase one.

Kent, did you see the front page of that site? Click the link below and scroll down to the 5th picture. It’s a woman sitting at a bar. Look at the bar, then click on the picture and see if you can spot the difference.

    That is cool Darrell, I didn’t notice that, what a neat idea!

Kent did you see this one? It’s a sofa murphybed that has a full or queen size bed. It also has a full length drawer for blankets and pillows.

    Yes, Darrell actually it is shown above and discussed a little. I tried to pick a variety to illustrate what was available.

Great post! I hadn’t seen these murphy beds before. I love posts on a theme like this. Thanks!

Different sofa murphybed Kent. Tat one has a sofa instead of a desk or table on the outside.

Stephanie, If you look at the pictures, you’ll see that the shelves have a back on them. Nothing can fall off the back. Just don’t put anything too close to the front.

    I guess I need to look more closely, thought it was the same one.

Do these actually fit into tiny homes?

    Kent - February 16, 2009 Reply

    It depends how small the space is, as a tiny home is generally thought to be in the range of 100 to 400 square feet.

While being used since the early 1900’s, the Murphy bed has been a space saving solution that has stood the test of time.
