This is a bookcase system that we just competled in March 2017. It is a series of six bookcases with about 36 shelves. What we’ve done different on this on is behind the four center bookcases we put a Murphy bed.
Now most of our Murphy beds are what they call Panel Beds where the face comes down with the bed. We can’t do that on a bookcase of course everything will fall off. Another system is where you have the door system that pivots out of way. The problem with the door system is with the wide swing of the door. On a full it is almost 30 inches wide (half the width). When you pivot around you need 30 inches on the side of the Murphy bed and thus take up a lot of space.
On this Bookcase Murphy bed we solved that problem and also solved the problem of the bookcases facing the wrong direction. We split the bookcase in half and had it bi-fold. Basically it opens it up, breaks in half and leaves the half the bookcase facing forward. The murphy bed is revealed behind the bookcases.
