This is a Horizontal (sideways) murphy bed that was built using the Alpha Spring system. I call this version my Templeton. It has kind of a shaker look to it.

I built a sofa in front of it. The cushions can be removed and the bed folds down over it. Normally I have arms built onto the sofa but this customer didn’t want them, because of the overall length. Inside the sofa base is storage that can be used to store pillows and other linens. More Murphy Bed Sofas

We matched a pickled white finish. We applied it as a wash coat. We matched the color in a thinned down white lacquer and sprayed it on. This has a more even look then the normal wiping stain would have.

Wood Type: Maple

Color: Custom Pickled Wash Coat

Mechanism: Alpha Spring System
