Horizontal Murphy Beds Photo Gallery
A Horizontal Bed means that the closed bed is wider than it is tall. The side of the bed is raised up to close the bed. The bed linen can be arranged such that the pillow can be on either end of the bed. The photos below show the pillow on the left side. One could just as easily make the bed up so that the pillow is on the right side.
A Horizontal Murphy Bed can fit in unique places such as a narrow room, under sloping ceilings in a bonus room, or under a high window.
(We also build Vertical Beds where the pillows are near the headboard and wall.)
Our clients wanted a guest room in a beautiful 1950's Island home that had a 7 1/2 foot ceiling. We built a horizontal queen MurphyBED. They also wanted display space above the bed, a book case to the left, and a dress/wardrobe combination for their guests. We designed and built custom cabinetry for this project. We were able to combine everything they wanted in a very compact, but highly functional space. (We didn't have our camera that day, so we are showing the design renderings instead.)
