Fresh Murphy Sofa Designs that Save Space

A Murphy sofa bed is the perfect choice for any homeowner looking to get more functionality out of the space. The sofa rests in front of a wall bed, which can fold down into a full bed when needed. When the bed is not in use, it is tucked into a wall cabinet out of site. The cabinet can be decorated with molding or shelving so that it blends right in with the rest of the décor.

There are numerous variations on the design, allowing you to create whatever look you like for your living room, home office, or guest room. You can make your home look more stylish and sophisticated, while also getting more use out of the space. Here’s a look at some fresh Murphy sofa designs that will help you maximize the space in your home:

The Minima Murpha sofa features a modern sectional sofa with a classic wall bed. The sofa itself is big enough for two (or three if you’re cozy), and it includes a moveable ottoman for multiple configurations. Set it on one side to create a chaise and a comfortable area for putting up your feet.

The wall bed is tucked behind the sofa in a plain white cabinet that will easily blend with your décor. The bed rests directly over the sofa, so you don’t have to remove anything to transform the unit.

The Minima comes in neutral colors like stone gray, taupe and sand, and it has a streamlined design that is perfect for modern aesthetics but that will still fit right in with traditional décor.

For a larger seating area, you can try the Murphy Sofa Sectional Wall Bed. This large sofa has room for three on the main seating area, and then it has an additional chaise with room for full lounging. The chaise can also slide inwards to become a more compact 3 seat sofa.

The larger wall bed also tucks into a cabinet, but the cabinet is adorned with a shelf for books or décor. Attached to the cabinet is a secondary set of shelves that can also be used for books, media or décor. It is the perfect unit for a living room or home office. You can easily convert the space from an area for study or entertaining to one that can accommodate guests.

If you live in a studio, you can put this unit in your main living space to also use it as a bedroom.

Most wall beds lift up from the foot. This horizontal wall bed lifts from the side, so the shortest part of the bed is being folded against the wall. That makes this bed a good choice for small or narrow rooms.

The wall bed folds down over a simple, futon-style sofa. The modern design features simple lines and a smooth surface. The sofa has a seat and a back but no arms, which typically only clutter the sofa design and limit seating room.

The area over the wall bed has several deep shelves for books, plants, and other décor. The two sets of shelves sit just above the cabinet that holds the bed. By storing the bed on its shorter side, the cabinet has the extra room for the high shelves.
