The History of the Murphy Bed

Did you know that the Murphy Bed was invented out of necessity? Well, at least according to legend, the Murphy Bed was invented out of necessity. The bed was named after its creator, William Lawrence Murphy. As legend has it, he wanted to entertain a lady in his one-room apartment. However, it would be inappropriate for a gentleman to bring a lady to his room with a bed in it appearing that he would be bringing her into his bedroom. Thus, he created a bed that could be lifted into the wall making his one-room apartment suitable for entertaining his lady-friend. The invention was patented at the turn of the 20th century and to this day, the Murphy Bed exists. University Loft finds it a useful piece of furniture.
