Hi I need to find someone who can help me build a Murphy bed.
Queen size, that opens up vertically.

Here is the thing, I’m looking for a very modern,
Flush design with clean lines.

I have a wood wall that I would like to make the Murphy bed look as if its part of,
So once it’s done I would cover it with the same wood slats.
The thinking is that it becomes one with the wall and the seams
Would barely be noticeable.

What I’m looking for:
Q, vertical, that has some storage space on the sides
Of it. The right side will have less space. On the left side
I would like some of the storage area to only be accessible
On the inside – so only when the Murphy bed is open.
Also I would like the left side of the Murphy bed design to have a
Diagonal slant. I think this would be an interesting feature.

I’m not concerned about the top as I would build it out so that
It reaches the ceiling – for a more built- in look.

Here is what I am looking for: modern clean lines, no detailing on doors.
BUT I would like the door pull to be hidden. Is a push pull possible?
Also I don’t want the little feet to give away that it’s a Murphy bed either.
Also from a design standpoint.

Can someone build this for me? I would like it to be out of wood but with no detailing.
It’s been hard to find a modern look..especially when the idea is to
Really try and hide the bed which I hope the slats of wood will do.

Any thoughts or ideas or recommendations who to contact?

Sounds like a job for Chris Davis. His projects here on Lumberjocks include a lot of Murphy Beds. Go to

to see what he can do, and then check out his web site at:

He has many stock models of such beds, but also will customize one in just about any configuration you can imagine.

Have your say...
