Murphy Bed

Recommended Posts

Anyone knows where I can buy a Murphy bed or a DIY kit? I cannot find any reference or stores in the Philippines from my Internet search… Would appreciate any information...

Easy enough to build yourself or have built. Just don't try a Murphy Water bed. Hahahahaha

Hmmm... <_< wasn’t it Dr. Porsche who said the “form follows function”? ;)

 

You only spend 6 to 8 hours a day in the bed room so I was just thinking about using that "dead" space for the rest of the day…

 

:D

It was Frank Lloyd Wright but yes, it is a good idea if you're short on space.

I was looking into Space Saving Furniture for my Studio Condo.

 

I was particularly impressed by this Italian company CLEI, which offers many Hi-Tech space saving items of Furniture, not just an updated version of the 'Murphy Bed'.

Items on the bookshelf dont need to be removed!

It is all counter-balanced and has hydraulic dampers, so ne real effort to lower or put back.

 

Uses slightly curved beech ply strips, as the sprung support for the mattress, that allows air to get to the underside of the mattress.

But much more products than just the updated hi-tech 'Murphy Beds', as they also offer Bunk Beds, Tables, Desks, Wardrobes!

 

That is what I was referring to!

OK, I finally went to their office today! Across the street from Greenbelt 3, it is inside the arcade New World Hotel but it is easier to get to it from outside the hotel.

 

Anyway, when I was a lowly associate with a Park Avenue firm, I had this small studio apartment on 56th and Madison… with a Murphy bed… memories, hehe ;)

 

The system they sell here is more upscale, “designer” version of the Murphy bed I am used to in NY… the prices range from about PHP90K (single bed), 300K (more like the US Queen size bed), up to 500K or so if you are adding shelves, glass doors, etc...

 

If anyone wants their PDF brochure, PM me and I would be happy to send you a copy… :)

 

Thank you, David, for referring me to this firm... This may be the answer I am looking for... :)

They say they have to consolidate the orders into a container so it varies but usually 45 days after the firm order. (Too optimistic? I don't know but all shipment comes from Italy...) Those orders placed in July/August would take 2 to 3 months for delivery, as they completely shut down the factory during the month of August...

Murphy would not have worked for me. I had built a lift up bed for my motorhome and decided why not? I did this in the US so obtaining materials was easy.

 

Need some wood, a piano hinge and a couple struts. Creativeness, imagination and a can do spirt are also needed.

Well for the kind of money their talking about I could buy several hectares of land!

 

Anyway something I have been looking for is a design for building your own bed that is a bunk bed on top and on the bottom is a futon that makes a couch or a full size bed. Anyone seen plans for that? Shouldn't be to difficult not like those hydraulic assisted monstrosities.

The price difference between a Studio Condo (*TCP:Php2,063,609) and a 1 Bedroom Condo (*TCP: Php3,466,088), is rather more than the cost of such fold away bed! (*Prices of Ramos Tower units. cleardot.gif28/07/2010)

 

If you are considering renting out such Condo, you need to charge more for a 1 Bedroom Condo.

 

Do you think you will get more inquiries/bookings for a 1 Bedroom Condo (at higher Rental charges), than a Studio Condo (that is priced lower than Hotel room)?

David, I am renting a studio condo in Ramos Tower. The bed is a queen size and does quite dominate the space! Big enough for one person (the condo I mean) but too small for a couple I would say.

 

If this was mine, I would have a sofa bed, or a fold up into a cabinet type bed. But the unit is as good as a good hotel, far cheaper of course, and has a kitchen. However I wouldn't buy a place this small for my own use. It's fine as a temporary place though. I can tell you that the view is fantastic from my little balcony on the 33rd floor here.

 

However, my condo under construction, is a one bed place, almost twice the size of this one.
