History of the Murphy Bed
The Murphy bed is named for William Lawrence Murphy (1876–1959). Murphy applied for his first patents for a fold away bed around 1900.
What inspired Murphy to design the bed? According to legend, he was wooing an opera singer, but living in a one-room apartment in San Francisco, and the moral code of the time frowned upon a woman entering a man’s bedroom.
So Murphy invented the fold out bed and converted his bedroom into a parlor, enabling him to entertain guests without breaking the moral code of the day.
Sears had introduced fold up beds through the Sears, Roebuck & Co. catalog, but Murphy introduced pivot and counterbalanced designs for which he received a series of patents, including one for a “Disappearing Bed”. Murphy’s design made the bed simple and safe to use.
Murphy beds are used for space-saving purposes, much like trundle beds, and are popular where floor space is limited, such as small homes, apartments, hotels, mobile homes and college dormitories. In recent years, these fold up beds have included options such as lighting, storage cabinets, and office components.
Murphy’s patent has since expired. In 1989, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled that the term “Murphy Bed” had entered common usage and was no longer eligible for protection.
