Tiny House Furniture #4–Slide Away Bed

This is called the Slide Away Bed.


It works a lot like a murphy bed except it pulls out instead of swinging out.

So when it’s not in bed mode it can be used as a sofa.

And the design is actually very simple as you’ll see in the photos below.

It’s a convertible piece of furniture that I think is perfect for tiny houses but can really be used anywhere.

Maybe even in a box truck conversion.

So let’s take a look…

The company offers over 100 fabrics to choose from and it comes with a memory foam mattress.

This type of murphy bed can be great for:

  • Tiny houses
  • Custom RVs
  • Small apartments
  • Studio apartments
  • In Law suites
  • Dens
  • Cabins
  • Dorms

So here’s a video of how it works:

    Gasp!!!! Sorry, just back from their website and I will avoid that section hereafter. I will study what I can see of it’s workings though, I think I can build a reasonable variant when I can lay hands on some Materials.

    Yes, I’ve just downloaded and viewed the video and I do believe I can.

    You’re right David this is one expensive piece. I’ve noticed though that most Murphy type furniture systems are. Would be great to see someone turn this into a DIY project.

      Its a great idea especial that the mattress has an overall cover.
      For occaisionally use it seems to me suitable
      However, for a daily use I would prefer a murphy bed with the already make bed on. It makes life so much easier.
      There are murphy bed around with a sofa in front of it so that you can combine sitting area with bed space, too.

    I was interested in the slide-away bed but I can’t get on the site.
