The first Murphy Bed was invented in the 1900s by William Murphy, which was the old-fashioned bed that folds into a closet. William Murphy patented his closet bed in 1908, but he did not trademark the name “Murphy Bed”, so it became a commonly used term.
Our company, MurphyBed Studios, was created in 2012. We took the original idea and the modern-day design and started our own collections of Murphy Beds. We first started by building our simple Manhattan Collection and selling it on Craigslist, until we were finally able to grow and create a fully functioning online shopping cart.
Over the years, MurphyBed Studios has added new styles, features and finishes to the initial offerings, and has continued to thrive by shipping custom-made Murphy beds all over the country. Today, we are focused on updating and growing our collections as well as incorporating modern conveniences into our products.
MurphyBed Studios has been honored with numerous awards, and featured in local newspapers as well as the Tulsa People magazine. And we are committed to serving our community through charitable donations and volunteer efforts.
