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.
Our Queen Size Ash Wallbed is looking mighty sharp in our schoolhouse gallery in upstate Pennsylvania. This piece has paneled sides, matching crown molding, and is painted Wickham Gray on the inside. It is available for purchase and can be shipped nationwide.
Up next in the woodshop are two additional wallbeds- one Maple, one Walnut. Wallbeds are a useful addition to any home and can accomodate the mattress you already own, or any mattress up to 12″ thick.
Also available are campaign dressers in black, white, and gray as well as a pair of beautiful European Walnut/ black dressers. See our store for more details.

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.

Mattress not included- but will fit any Queen mattress less than 12″ thick. The dimensions on these beds are 94″ tall x 67″ wide x 17 1/4″ deep. When opened they extend 84″ from the wall.
N.B. The Walnut Bed now resides happily in Chelsea, NYC. We still have the Ash one on display and can build new Murphy Beds in Walnut or other woods. Send a note if you’re interested!
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.
Next up in the shop we have this White Murphy Bed going to Chelsea, NYC. This custom wallbed features two built-in whiteboards- one that flips down to become a simple desk surface. The cabinet contains four doors with shelves behind them, and three drawers topped by a pull-out counter. Progress photos to follow.
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.

In progress, to be delivered next week, we have this beautiful Walnut Murphy Bed. The design of the front is new, and it features a sculpted wood handle. The curved horizontal element flips 90 degrees to become the foot of the bed when it is folded down. Under the bookcase is a roll out nightstand.
Also awaiting finish and delivery is this Sassafras King Sized headboard. It will get a dark stain to match the existing bedroom furniture in a Montgomery County, PA home.
To the right of the bed there will be several adjustable shelves and underneath is a roll-out cart on fixed casters, with a pullout surface. The top rail of the bed flips up to become the foot that it rests on when it is folded down from the wall. The end of the piece will be paneled by the doorway, to match the piece. This built-in will be sharing the room with walnut furniture by George Nakashima! We think that’s pretty special.
