Innovations are happening in Harrodsburg, Kentucky! These feature products are probably not new to the Murphy bed industry but are definitely new to us. We worked closely with our customers and our Amish craftsman to design and build them.
Entertainment Center Innovations
Recently one of our customers asked us to design an entertainment center. She wanted one similar to one she had seen on the internet. The available wall space for the unit was approximately 10 ½ feet with 12 foot ceiling height. We designed a unit fpr delivery in six different sections. The finished total dimensions in feet are 10W X 9H X 2D. The entertainment unit sections were assembled in the customer’s home. This beautiful white painted MDF unit has one large space for a TV as well as open and closed compartments for accessory equipment such as DVR, VCR, ROKU, and other treasures. Open sections feature wainscoting for the backs, adjustable shelving, dimmer canister lights in the top, and crown molding for accent. Cabinet doors feature raised trim for a clean linear design. Needless to say this is a unique, very impressive piece of furniture!
Bookcase Door Murphy Bed
We had another customer request a cherry Murphy bed with bookcase doors. This beautiful Murphy bed unit has matching accessory bookcases on the left and right. Bookcase doors slide open to reveal a full size mattress and our EZ Rest welded frame.
This project is truly unique as the bed cabinet is over an antique heat register. The customer wants to direct the heat into the room when the bed was closed. For this project we worked closely with our Amish craftsman and local frame maker. We fashioned a metal grate cover to redirect the heat out the front of the bed cabinet into the room. The metal grate cover is insulated to prevent heat transfer up through the bed cabinet. The toe kick and one bookcase door feature corresponding decorative metal grates. This met the customer needs perfectly!
Innovations Coming Soon!
- We are producing a horizontal queen size Murphy bed cabinet to fit a long narrow room in a high rise condominium. Unique features of this bed cabinet include a false floor with counterweights to avoid drilling holes in the concrete floor. Look for a blog and website pictures this month.
- We have a Murphy desk/table cabinet. This new accessory furniture design is featured in a previous blog and on our website, so check it out.
- We are developing Murphy bunk beds. A challenging concept using standard twin mattresses and welded steel frame. Hopefully this design is available to customers by spring 2017.
