Did you have enough room for company over the holidays? If you needed an extra bed you might want to consider a Murphy bed in your home.
Our journeyman cabinet maker Ian Bailey has made a few for customers who are very happy to have them.
The bed is named after its inventor, William Murphy, who applied for his first patents around 1900. The Murphy bed is also known as wall-bed, or fold away bed.
The biggest advantage of the Murphy bed is that during the day you can use the space for some other purpose, like a play room here in this home we built recently, and at night you can convert the place into a bedroom for guests. It’s perfect for the holidays when you need a little extra space.
