San Francisco-the Location of the Original Murphy Bed

Have you ever wondered how the original Murphy Bed came to be? Ironically, the original wallbed is named after William Lawrence Murphy from San Francisco around 1900.  Legend has it, Murphy was courting an opera singer and wanted to entertain her at his home, which happened to be a one-bedroom apartment in San Francisco.

Moral codes of ethics frowned upon a man entertaining a woman in his bedroom. Not to be stopped, Murphy created the fold-up bed, which turned his one-bedroom apartment into a parlor acceptable for entertaining.

The Murphy Wallbed of Modern Times

The original Murphy wallbed changed a bedroom to a parlor

Today the popular wallbeds are used in situations where floor space is limited.  Apartments, small homes, dormitories, mobile homes, and even fire houses utilize the popular “fold up” bed to make the most out of small spaces.

Wallbeds that serve a dual-purpose with a table or desk or cabinets with shelving units create an even more useful piece of furniture.  The ability to customize with a choice of finishes or creative looks gives wallbed owners even more individualism and adds to the popularity of the furniture.

San Francisco’s Location is a Logical Choice

The popular San Francisco location will sure to draw interest from people in and around the community. With the current economic times dictating smaller homes, expensive price tags on larger homes, and children moving back in with their parents, the Murphy Wallbed has made a comeback.

What Happy Customers Say

  • I have had the pleasure of doing business at the Costa Mesa Wallbeds and More on two separate occasions. I was invited to visit the store by appointment which assured me Roger’s full attention and respect for my time. I was able to ask questions and see a demonstration of how to open and close the beds. We discussed what I could expect from the delivery and installation personnel. Roger was outgoing and helpful in every way. The pieces I bought are comfortable, attractive, and a great solution to space issues.
