As this article asks, "Who was Murphy and Why Is There a Bed Named After Him"? And you know how we love articles about the history of the Murphy Bed (see the next posts - revivals of old ones we did years back).
There are multiple stories about Murphy and why he made the folding bed (Murphy bed). The version that is told within the Murphy Bed Company is that Murphy wanted to have a young lady over but at the time it was inappropriate to have a woman in his bedroom, that moral standard inspired Murphy to come up with a solution to turn his bed room into a living space. Eventually Murphy married that same girl and with a loan from her father commercialized "Murphy In-A-Door-Bed" and his company was born, which is still in operation today. Demand for his product peaked in the early 1900's as more people moved into cities seeking manufacturing jobs in the growing American economy. Sales dwindled down as the Great Depression hit and raw materials became scarce during WWll. Today, with the attraction of urban living and downsizing baby boomers, the market is experiencing a resurgence. His original company is going strong, as is Zoom-Room, the next generation electronic, remote controlled Murphy Bed.
