Murphy Chest

The Murphy Chest seems like a neat idea, but I always wonder about converting a common dining room item into a bed. Imagine having guests over for dinner and coffee… then abruptly saying, “Janice, honey, you look tired… go ahead and reach under the creamer, there’s a handle to pull out the bed right here in the dining room. Go ahead put your head down while we continue socializing for another couple hours – don’t mind us one bit!”

I'm a wallbed fan, and just sharing ideas for anyone else looking to maximize space for both form and function.
