This is a new style finished in December 2011. It was designed by the customer. I’ve built a mission style Murphy bed for them in the past in black (see picture). She came with me with the design and the layout worked nice with a folding table. Most tables added to Murphy beds look like they were just added to the front without any thought. I love it when customers allow me to build one that is more inset and integrated into the overall piece. The desk legs are the top/center double doors and the three drawer fronts come down with the desk. It is similar to how I build my Smithsonian Murphy bed.
Not only was this piece challenging because of the desk, it will be a built in with 107 5/8” ceilings. I added a row of cabinets on the top to complete the height and sized the bookcases for the correct width. The bookcases also have a scribe molding to make installation easier.
This is similar to my Mission Style Murphy Bed. I really love this one and will put it on my site as a production piece with and without the folding desk. Don’t have a name for it so any suggestions will be great!
The crown and base were cut big to be trimmed by the customer during installation. There will also be some molding that will close out the small gap left between the scribe face of the bookcase and the wall.
Add to your Watch List and Favorites and I’ll post a picture of it installed when the customer sends it
