The bed is entirely custom and made from hardware from a few different companies. In our opinion, the nicest murphy bed hardware comes from Hafele.

Love the perforated grille to let the sunlight through to the bed! We make those type of products and in dozens of designs. Looks great!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The client came up with the idea of a Murphy bed that could fold out of the way when not in use. The designers then had to figure out how to transform the sleeping space into a living space. They didn't want to have to see the bottom of the bed in the way that many Murphy beds are styled, so they created a giant pivoting door. The door hides the bed when it's not in use, and becomes a partition between sleeping and living areas when the bed is out.
Laura Gaskill added this to Easy Green: 10 Tiny Homes That Live Large
The Houzz: Unfolding apartment in ManhattanBy: Michael Chen and Kari Anderson, Normal ProjectsTip: Be innovative with space savers. Another unfolding apartment, this one has a large cabinet that conceals a bed, a closet and a desk. The "wall" partitioning the bed from the living area is actually the cabinet door.
Jennifer Ott Interior Design added this to Palatable Palettes: 8 Cool Blue Bedrooms
Royal BlueDarker shades of blue can be tricky to work with as they, like all dark hues, tend to suck all the light from a room and make it feel cavelike. This room, however, with its wall of windows and its white walls, can accommodate the deep, intense blue cabinetry. The result is a brilliantly modern sleeping space.
Becky Harris added this to New Looks for Time-Honored Murphy Beds
Murphy bed inspiration helped Michael Chen and Kari Anderson of Normal Projects create an apartment that unfolds in all kinds of ways. It transitions to suit the owner's needs — from a living room to a bedroom to an office to a lounge with a bar — all thanks to their ingenious cabinetry design.See the way the rest of this apartment unfolds

The Disappearing Guest RoomThere is a happy medium between a guest cottage at the ready and a blow-up mattress in the living room. Murphy beds take advantage of vertical space; when guests leave, they can be flipped back up, and your life can get back to normal.

7. Be functional. Guys are utilitarian. We love to think in practical terms and believe we're MacGyver. That's why Murphy beds and functional, versatile storage units are key to any guy space.See more: Houzz Tour: 400-Square-Foot Unfolding Apartment
400-Square-Foot Unfolding Apartment Location: Manhattan Size: 400 square feetIntent on finding a way to have guests over for dinner and overnight visits, this apartment owner worked with a local firm to squeeze each zone of his apartment into a built-in cabinet along one wall. The massive cabinet contains a bed, desk and closet, all of which can fold out or back as needed.See more of this home
A panel swings and the bed drops to turn the open living space into a bedroom. The panel is a super idea, for it creates a sense of privacy and cuts down on sunlight from the windows.See more inspiring Murphy beds
