How does this wall bed work without mounting it to a wall? It has a metal frame built into the unit that extends beyond the wall beds size and out into the room. This counter balances the bed so it cannot tip over and therefore does not require a mount. In the open space between the support frame a ‘hovering’ desk is in place. This desk balances the look by filling in the empty space between the support bars while also providing a multi functional work area. Another amazing feature is this entire desk is balanced, lowering down horizontal to keep your work in place where you left it. You can choose your own custom finishes for the build & face as well as the desk or even mix it up for some contrast.

Why use a freestanding wall bed desk rather than a traditional mounted one? In most cases a mounted wall bed makes more sense as you are not forced to have counterweight bars in front. Some homes may have heritage status and preservation rules which do not allow any modifications to the walls including inserting hardware, no matter how minimal the hardware might be. Also many rental units have clauses that nothing can be mounted to a wall without permission. If your home does not have these allowances this is an excellent option that also has some extra function as a work space. In a desk model like this it makes sense because the desk lines up with the bars and therefore is not wasting space, it’s now a usable area. Double & Single also available, inquire for pricing.  We also have a Free Standing Wall Bed Sofa model.
