This murphy bed was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wrights designs. It was built in November 2016. It features a stay level desk. As it transistions into a bed the desk stays level and everything can stay on there as lone as it is under 8 1/2” tall. More info on the Frank Lloyd Wright Bed.

The Murphy Bed lights are outset. Normally they are inside the bed section but I wanted these over the desk. In doing that I was also able to bring the bookcases out deeper. Total depth is 20”, bookcases are 18” deep (the stand away from the back wall for the outlets.

That is beautiful. I love it. Always been a huge FLW fan and never sure how to incorporate it into wood projects. I am saving your design for a possible future guest room for myself.
