As a huge fan of all things HGTV, I am completely caught up in the Tiny House movement. I love all their clever space-savings ideas, double-duty furniture, and their passion and dedication to live with less. In an age of wasteful consumption, this is something we could all use.
I was absolutely thrilled to learn that HomeWorld now has Murphy beds in our showrooms.
Murphy beds are smartly-designed, space-saving beds that are stored in a wall or cabinet and fold out when needed.
The history of the Murphy is quite romantic. It was invented by William Lawrence Murphy (1856-1957) who was living in a one-room apartment in San Francisco in the late 19th century. He was courting a young Opera singer and being a gentleman it would be frown upon to invite a lady into his bedroom. He decided to stow his bed in the closet, therefore transforming his bedroom into a parlor. The couple married in 1900. (source: smithsonianmag.com)
Although earlier fold-up beds existed, it was Murphy who patented the pivot and counterbalanced design in the early 1900’s that he is credited for.
Today, the Murphy bed is still an ingenious concept giving you an extra bed when you need it and stows away to save valuable room space the rest of the time.
HomeWorld introduces two stand alone Murphy beds: Clover (in cherry or chocolate) and Daisy (in buttercream). Both are solid wood cabinet designs that store fold-out gel memory foam queen size mattresses. The firm mattresses are included in the price of the Murphy beds.
Ideal for a den or multi-functional room, the Clover and Daisy are certainly a game-changer for those who with limited space but still want to welcome overnight guests in their homes.
