When you downsize, the biggest problem is often where to put the bed? Most people find it difficult to devote a whole room to a big bed sitting there, taking up valuable space.
Let me introduce to you: The Murphy Bed Sofa!

These designs are modern and minimalistic designs from Italy. Clean and simple.

This is a nice and stylish bed built between shelving units with lots of storage.
This table gives you the opportunity to use a desk in the daytime. Everything stays in place on the table when you flip the bed down. Very nice and beautifully designed.
Another bed with table feature. $1,917 with free shipping.
This Murphy bed is a little simpler and also cheaper.
Affordable pull-out sofa
This sofa can be pulled out to become a Queen-size bed at night.
It’s made from memory foam, and very well crafted to be as comfortable as a regular bed.
A strong price for a multi-function piece of furniture this well crafted. We did a separate post about this folding sofa bed here.
Murphy Bed and comfortable sofa in one
The front sofa part is designed with sides, which I think is a great feature. It makes it look more like a traditional sofa, for those who like that cozy and comfy look.
It comes with 2 back cushions and 2 side cushions and has a standard with of 6 feet.
When you need to access the bed, the 4 cushions fit inside the sofa part. It flips up from the back and you don’t have to worry about them getting dirty or spreading out all over the floor, creating chaos in a small space.
Above you have a shelve for books, decorative objects etc.
When you want to access the bed, you pull the shelve toward you, and the shelves then become the leg support for the bed.
Whatever is on the shelve can stay on it, you don’t have to move anything.. so easy.
The sides of the sofa, are designed to go outwards a little bit, so the bed part fits nicely in between them.
When you get up, all you do is clip your sheets and pillows in place, so they don’t slide down, and you flip the bed back up. The bed goes up and down on a hydraulic system, so you don’t have to do any backbreaking lifts to operate this bed.
The best thing about this piece of furniture is that it’s a regular bed.
You avoid those normal downsides of sleeping on bumpy surfaces on a sleeper sofa or crawling up a latter to a sometimes low sealing sleeping loft.
This is a regular bed with a normal mattress, it even has a headrest, so you can sit up and read a book and still be comfortable. Definitely a great design for a bedroom and living space in one!
