Not Your Grandma's Murphy Bed - More Space Place is Reinventing an Old Standard

More Space Place, the number one retailer of Murphy Beds in the United States, reinvents the Murphy Bed to combine functionality with sophisticated design.

Clearwater, Fla. (PRWEB) July 03, 2012 - When you think of a Murphy Bed, you may first envision Charlie Chaplin's famous 1916 fight with the Murphy Bed skit or Eddie Valiant's Murphy Bed disguised as filing cabinets in the 1988 film, Who Framed Roger Rabbit. No matter which famous Murphy Bed clip you recall, the prodigy of those old time beds (now part of a much larger product category of Wallbeds) continue to be an American staple in homes - and for good reason. They are practical, stylish and, most importantly, create space where there was none before.

From their invention in 1900 to now, alterations of the bed mechanism and through the introduction of a multitude of design, color and material options, More Space Place, the industry leader in developing multifunctional furniture, is reinventing the old standard. Most recently, the Florida-based company introduced thirty-five thermo-foil finishes, including a collection of faux, earth-friendly exotic woods, unique leathers and bold animal-skin patterns to their already extensive repertoire.

To custom create a More Space Place Murphy Bed of your own, first visit a store to decide which of the ten basic Murphy Bed styles you want. Then select your complimenting cabinetry. To complete your design select the materials, color and finish. For More Space Place customers, these space saving wall beds are transformed into functional, modern art.

"What's most enjoyable about being a part of the More Space Place family is the infinite amount of possibilities we can offer," said Sue Corso, More Space Place, Jacksonville, Fla. "We get to work with customers to create great designs that not only reflect their personal style, but gives them more space in their home."

For over 25 years, More Space Place has innovated the Murphy Bed to keep up with technology, design trends and changing American lifestyles. Today, you won't see your grandma's Murphy Bed in any of their 38 showrooms, but you'll definitely have an abundance of options to make your Murphy Bed truly your own.
