WallBed: History


Wall beds, also known as Murphy beds, have been a staple in Australian homes for over a century. The idea of a bed that can be folded up and stored against a wall was first patented by William Lawrence Murphy in the early 1900s, and soon became a popular solution for maximizing living space in small apartments and homes across Australia and beyond.
