Collections from a Murphy Bed Geek


Pull Out the Bed

Wall Beds at Dwell on Design

We attended the Dwell on Design show at the LA Convention Center, the largest design exhibition that brings together like-minded businesses, designers, and consumers.

Here are some of the beds we saw:

One of the Dwell photobooths where you could put together a lifestyle scene – kid on ladder included – seriously ;)


A Murphy Bed Made from Reclaimed Wood



Found on, this bed is really inspiring to see the use of reclaimed wood.

  • Overall unit is 90in wide.

  • Mattress is not included. Uses any brand mattress up to 11in thick.


Elevator Bed: Rising to the Occasion

Although most of our homes feature an 8ft ceiling, most of us don’t always use all the vertical space the room has to offer. Why not stow your bed above your desk or sewing table until you need it. That way, you don’t be tempted to put something off to take a nap. “Hm… all this writing about beds is making me sleepy… but I can’t goto bed until I’m done this post b/c my bed is over my head!”

Modular Sleep Space: High Tech Bed

ODA Studio architects imagined Hall, a concept for modular sleep space. The room consists of three components: the Pod, station media and satellite (including an Office and storage of information). A room of desire for high technology which includes complete geek survival kit: flat screen embedded in mobile wall bed, end Office to work with your laptop and lounge space to play PSP between friends.

Inspiration from all over the world.
