04 Feb Everything You Wanted to Know About Wall Beds (But Were Afraid to Ask)
The wall bed, also known as a Murphy bed, has its historic origins in San Francisco circa 1900. The story goes that a man was romantically pursuing an opera singer, but social norms at the time frowned on a woman spending time in a man’s bedroom. What was his solution? Converting his bedroom into a spacious parlor by folding his bed into the wall. Next thing you know, the popularity of wall beds exploded as they become a convenient way to save space and ensure you get the most out of your room.
As homes got bigger and more people made the move to the suburbs, the wall bed began to fall out of fashion. Now, we’re seeing a major movement in maximizing the space of our homes, and the wall bed is leading the charge! Today, the wall bed is making a comeback all over the country.
