This is a murphy bed desk version. A hidden desk folds out of the face of the murphy bed. I call it the New Yorker, because the first one I built was for a comedian in New York. Except their desk had a double fold desk. Check out the New Yorker Murphy Bed.

This one only had a single desk, but I did build upper bookcases and side bookcases to match.

The finish was a white undercoater with an antiquing glaze on top. It was completed in October 2015.

Video of how it works

I “JUST”sent you (your company) an email about this exact murphy bed. Do you sell plans for this bed/desk? Or something similar? Ex. Hudson Bay, Manchester, Craftsman? Thanks in advance! Beautiful work!

Thanks for contacting us. Look forward to working with you on this. I’ll either post you some modification notes on a blog here or type it up in a doc. Either way I’ll email you. You’ll love building your murphy bed. You should receive the mechanism about mid week.
