Corinthian Accented Crown

Pat called from San Francisco and asked if we couldn't manufacture two twin Armoire beds for her niece and nephew, when they visited her resort home in Granite Bay. The limitation was this SICO twin Euro Bed had to fit in 44 inches width. Allow me to assure you this was a design nightmare. The opening for our twin bed cavity is 41 inches. Pictured here are the results we created to give the illusion of grandeur.

During the design stage, I suggested to Pat that I was going to have to stack the crown. When she asked what that meant, I suggested I wasn't quite sure yet. The resulting configuration is a statement you won't find in any architectural technique book.

We manufactured two of these beds for Pat's niece and nephew. And I will add pictures in one year to demonstrate their at home beautification plan. But before then, when we install these two beds in July we will add the accent hardware that will be a crowning touch to this deceptive theme. Until then allow this YouTube Video from the factory to expand on our enlightenment.

This Alder system went to Flagstaff, Arizona. This photograph was taken in the factory before all the appointments have been added to make the complete design theme pop. I have been promised pictures from the installation site that will show the accent hardware, glass doors and lighted modules.

And, best of all, I'll show you a really comfortable bed that was hidden until we required for the lucky guest.

The photo below shows not only the quality of wood we select and the manufacture of the world's best Murphy beds, but also the detail our employees put into the final product.

The wood we selected here for this client is Alder. The best characteristic of Alder is its ability to accept any stain finish. Our chemist James can make this wood look like Maple or Walnut, but with a better signature.

Tom contacted us from Austin and asked that we manufacture for him a custom finish to match his antique desk in the same room. All we required was a temporary loan of a desk drawer face.

Gothic Armoire went to Culpepper, Virginia

 

Upper Pier Cabinet

In the Spring of 2010, we made our first Gothic Armoire with the bedface panel extending beyond the SICO EuroBed frame. While this did extend the lowered bed eight inches more into the room, the deceptive facade was greatly enhanced by not having the horizontal cut shown in earlier models..

Bridge

This bridge actually nests the bedface when the bed is stored in the closed position. Great deception.

SICO Eurobed Mechanism

 

First thing that happens with the manufacture of any FlyingBed is the arrival of the SICO Mechanism and the lumber from the forest.

Next, Julio does his magic in designing the layout with a little assistance.

 

Next, James does final sanding inspection on Alder Bedface Panels before applying first application of wiping stain.

 

Murphy Bed Finish Samples

 

Two hours after bridge assembly.

The Arch on this bridge assembly was certainly a challenge but we loved it.

When we stood Donota up for the fist time, the lumber for the raised panel bed face arrived and headed to the shaper. Our next question to the client was, "What finish do you prefer of these samples or do you have something we can match?"

A close eye on the photograph to the right can find the hidden interior nightstand.

The final stages of manufacture is the most stressful. We put everything together to insure we did it right. Here's proof!

Seen in the upper right are the interior light system that has both a dimmer control and override mercury switch. This guarantees that the bed cannot close with the lights on.

The accent hardware shown in your selection. Send it to us and we will install. Or, for the brave soul, allow us to choose your hardware.

So, you be the judge. In the photograph of Julio at the top of this page, you can find a photograph from a catalog from Germany. Did we follow the theme perfectly?

Thanks!
