What Is A Wall Bed?
A Wall Bed (Murphy bed) is a bed that is hinged on one side to a wall, allowing it to be folded up against the wall. Sounds like a great, space saving idea right? Well the name “Murphy bed” actually dates back to around 1918. A man living in San Francisco named William L Murphy came up with the design best known today. These kinds of beds had been around for a while in one form or another since around 1900, but William Murphy took the idea of a folding bed and put a hinge at one end so it could be folded up and stored against a wall.
