Late last week this gorgeous Maple number was installed in a private residence in Philadelphia. Stretching wall to wall in the guest room, the full size vertical Murphy bed with side cabinets features pullout surfaces and custom handmade pulls as well as an integral ventilation grate. The finish here is satin waterborne lacquer. The foot design has evolved a bit from the previous version of our Murphy bed. On site, the trim was coped to fit seamlessly into the existing baseboard in the room.

The woodshop has been bustling with the design and creation of two wallbeds, nearing completion. One is a full size bed, made from Maple, with custom wood pulls, and will be flanked by matching side cabinets that stretch from wall to wall. The second is crafted from Walnut, and will go to an apartment in Manhattan.
Each starts with a client consultation, a sketch, raw lumber, a cut list, and hours upon hours into weeks of craftsmanship. These images are from Adam’s Instagram stream @SpringhouseWoodshop – but if you aren’t a IG user, you can see all the progress photos at this link #WallbedBuild.

We have two beautiful space saving Queen size Murphy Beds on display. One is Walnut, the other is Ash, both constructed from sustainably harvested Pennsylvania lumber, with crown molding and stunning paneled fronts and sides, using state of the art piston hardware (10 year warranty on hardware). The pulls are crafted of matching wood. Interiors and headboards are painted Benjamin Moore’s Wickham Gray.

The latest item out of the woodshop is this custom cube shaped side table for Philadelphia interior designer Jennie Pritzker.
The piece has rounded edges to prevent the client’s toddler from falling onto a pointy edge, is painted in waterborne lacquer in Benjamin Moore Wickham Grey, and measures 28” H x 26” W x 26” D.
Also in progress are two Queen Size Murphy Beds. One is gorgeous Walnut, the other will likely be painted. We will have one of these super useful pieces installed in our new showroom so that clients can come see one in the flesh if they like.
When space is at a premium, it helps to have built-ins that do double duty, like this white murphy bed with storage cabinets, a pull-out nightstand counter, drawers, and a fold-down desk with whiteboards. This piece was installed in Chelsea, New York City, and the modern white satin lacquer looked great against the blue wall. Arch pulls from Lee Valley Hardware. Only a custom cabinetmaker can produce a piece that fits a unique apartment wall like a glove.
A family with four children needed a new solution for sleeping arrangements and these bunk beds were the solution. It has a central ladder and is framed by a matching bookcase and simple desk with a drawer and shelves. Everything is painted in lacquer matched to Benjamin Moore White Dove.
Inspired by the stands that hold and display precious antiques, the Artifact Bed, shown here in King size, built with rare spalted wormy Pennsylvania Sugar Maple, is a knockout. The headboard has a comfortable lean to it and the lumber is on display, featured in this simple modern design. The worms are dead and gone, of course, since the lumber has been kiln dried and aged and sanded and finished with a waterborne lacquer, but their paths snake through the wood, leaving captivating traces of their existence in what was once a tree.
This Custom Walnut Murphy Bed, commissioned by interior designer Adele Danziger, features a bookcase and roll out nightstand, and has matching wooden pulls. The piece, which measures 96” tall 83” wide 18” deep, houses a queen bed in an addition on a historic Bucks County farmhouse. The cut out in the nightstand counter provides a convenient handhold for getting in and out of bed.
