London Murphy Beds, Inc.
Bedding and Bath
Pekos traditional-basement


This shows a library murphy bed in the open position. The library doors slide from the centre to either side to allow the bed to open. The doors do not touch the floor. A wall bed like this will allow you to leave 250 lbs of books or nick nacks on the shelves. The doors are supported by 2 hawa tracks. Michael Tennant designed this murphy bed and John Tennant installed the unit for London Murphy Beds, Inc. doing business as Ontario Murphy Beds. He also took this picture of the murphy bed using an iPhone 4.

We design and install or ship them. Many library beds look the same. Ours has been imitated by most of our competitors. The track system that holds the doors is the biggest difference between ours and most others. We use 2 $600 HAWA aluminium tracks from Switzerland. Imitation units use a single $250 T bar track. (both pictures attached) They will both work about the same when new but in 10 years mine will still operate the same as the day it was delivered. Every other component we use are the best available but the tracks are the most obvious between ours and others.

Yes it needs to be attached at the top to your wall. The bottom can be attached to the wll or the floor, it's up to you. Cement, plaster or steel studded walls do not cause any problems for us.
