The Craftsmen at WWBeds Custom Furniture completed this New Yorker style Murphy bed. It was finished in January 2018. The New Yorker is characterized by the arrangement of a "picture frame" molding on the false door face of the bed. Typically, the New Yorker has a fold-down desk, but this customer chose not to have one. Even without the desk, "folded up" it looks the same are the Desk version.
This is a king size murphy bed. It will take a standard 76 x 80 mattress. Even though its huge, the bed counterbalances itself to make it very lightweight and easy to open.
We adjusted the overall height of this bed. The header is a little bit taller than our normal look. We went ahead and extended it to 94" tall. Normal Queen/King height is 90 1/4". We custom built the bookcases to have more of the "built-in" look. The customer had a little over 110" of width to work with. We tried to accommodate their use of space by building the bookcases a custom width and putting a scribe molding on the outside edge. This allowed us to come fairly close to the wall (within a 1/2"), and close out that gap with supplied trim.
The Murphy Bed Bookcases are the full height of the bed, which by the way is 94" instead of the normal 90 1/4". Inside the bookcases, we added LED lights with a three stage touch sensor located in the back of the cabinet. Also on the bookcases, there is a drink tray which is perfect to use as a nightstand when the bed is being used.
