A History of Murphy Beds compliments of Wikipedia

A Murphy bed (in North America), also called a wall bed, pull down bed or fold-down bed is a bed that
is hinged at one end to store vertically against the wall, or inside of a closet or cabinet.

The bed is named for William Lawrence Murphy (1876–1959), who applied for his first patents around
1900.[1] According to legend, he was wooing an opera singer, but living in a one-room apartment in
San Francisco, and the moral code of the time frowned upon a woman entering a man's bedroom.
Murphy's invention converted his bedroom into a parlor, enabling him to entertain.[2] Earlier foldup
beds had existed, and were even available through the Sears, Roebuck & Co. catalog,[3] but Murphy
introduced pivot and counterbalanced designs for which he received a series of patents, including one
for a "Disappearing Bed" on June 18, 1912[4] and another for a "Design for a Bed" on June 27, 1916.
[5]

Murphy beds are used for space-saving purposes, much like trundle beds, and are popular where
floor space is limited, such as small homes, apartments, hotels, mobile homes and college dormitories.
In recent years, Murphy bed units have included options such as lighting, storage cabinets, and office
components. They have seen a resurgence in popularity in the early 2010s due to the weak economy,
with children moving back in with their parents and families choosing to renovate homes rather than
purchasing larger ones.[6]

In 1989, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled that the term "Murphy Bed"
had entered common usage so thoroughly that it was no longer eligible for trademark protection.[7]

Most Murphy beds do not have box springs. Instead, the mattress usually lies on a wood platform or
wire mesh and is held in place so as not to sag when in a closed position.[8] The mattress is attached
to the bed frame, often with elastic straps to hold the mattress in position when the unit is folded
upright.

Since the first model several other variations and designs has been made like: Sideway-mounted
Murphy beds, Murphy bunk beds, and solutions that includes other functions. Murphy beds with tables
or desks that folds down when the bed is folded up is popular, and there are also models with sofas
and shelving solutions. [9]

Murphy wall beds include horizontal-oriented beds that flip up from the side and even bunk beds. A
piston-lift or torsion springs make modern Murphy beds easy to lower and raise.

To all whom it my concern:

Beitknown that I, WILLIAM L. MUBPHY, a citizen of the United States, residing at San.Francisco, in the county of San Francisco. and
State of California, have invented new and useful Improvements in Disappeering Beds, of which the following is a specification.

The present invention relates to improvements in disappearing beds, the object of the invention being to provide an apparatus used for
moving the bed from one position to another which shall be simple in character and convenient in operation, and particularly in which a
bed of ordinary fullwidth can be passed through an opening of muchless width and concealed by the door closing said opening.

Illythfi accompanying drawing, Figure 1 is a front view of the bed, in the position for use, the door being shown partly closed; Fige2 is a
sectional view of the opening for the bed, showing in plan view the bed in the position for use but collapsed, and showing in dotted lines the
position of the bed when not in use and also an intermediate position; Fig. 3 is a side view of the lower por tion of the head of the bed.

Referring to the drawing, 1 indicates a wall and 2 an opening therein closed by asliding door 3, which slides in the wall at one side of the
opening and abuts against a. post 4 at the other side. However, 1 herein show a sliding door as one illustration only of the manner in which
the invention may be applied. Secured to said post are the fixed leaves of a vertical series of hinges 5, three being here shown, and "an
angle plate 6 is riveted or otherwise secured to the loose leaves of said hinges. However, if desired, said angle plate may itself be hinged
to said fixed leaves. Said angle plate is secured by countersunk bolts 7 and nuts-8 to upper and tower head boards 9, to which are secured
vertical brackets 10, to the central portions of which brackets is pivotally secured the bed frame 11, said bed flame having at its toot legs
12-adapted to be folded against the bed frame when collapsed. @ther details of, construction of the bed itself are not material to the
invention and are not herein shown. It will be seen that, by reason of The sliding door can be closed equall well when the bed is opened for
use, or in t e position of rest when not in use.

Although the angle plate, as herein shown,

is of a length to extend the full height of the door, it is not necessary for the proper support of the bed that such should be the case, as it
need only extend the height of the uppermost head board. However, the apparatus presents a better appearance when the angle plate is of
such height, and, in addition, is slightly stronger.

A great advantage attendant upon my invention is that the bed and all traces thereof are entirely concealed when not in use, and, the door
being of ordinary width, no suspicion is ever created that it conceals a bed of full width.

The simplicity and convenience of the construction of bed herein disclosed depend in a great measure upon the fact that the hinges have
pintles that are arranged sub stantially in the middle of one side of the opening, and the leaves of said hinges can extend through said
opening to opposite sides of the wall.

I claim 1. in combination with a wall having an opening, a bed, of greater width than the width of said opening, pivotally secured to said
wall on one side of said opening by pivots located suficiently near the central vertical axis of the head of the bed to permit the bed to swing
horizontally therethrough, substantially as described 2.. in combination with a wall having an opening, a bed, of greater width than the
width of said opening, having a pivotal sup; portat one side of said opening by pivots located sufiiciently near the central vertical axis of the
head of the bed to permit the bed to swing-horizontally therethrough,substantially as described.

3. In combination with a wall having an opening, a bed, and hin%es upon which said In testimony ivhereof I have hereunto set bed can
swing horizonta 1y, said hin s hevmy hand in the presence of two subscribing ing pintles located substantially in t e mid- 'wltnesse's.
