Technology and the hottest new Murphy Bed in the world
Ron McKey, Founder and President of FlyingBeds International, Inc., is fired up about the new Italian Murphy Bed systems from Italy. Just introduced two weeks ago at the Milan show, [after a year of testing], this is the hottest new Murphy Bed in the world. That is a free standing Murphy Bed that does not attach to the floor or wall !
      The Colombo Family, Francesco and Lino have continually improved and invented unique Murphy Bed styles with a guiding emphasis to manufacturing the most compact Murphy Bed system in the world. Most models store away into only 11” of wall space depth.
      In only 11” this Italian family has made a steel framed platform that has a unique wood-slat foundation supporting your choice of mattress. A firm High Density Urethane Foam or the popular Memory Foam composition. You will not be sacrificing any impression of comfort in thinking this 6" mattress is less than the 13" mattress we have grown to accept as the American standard. The secret is the ‘foundation’ of this sleep system – it’s not built into the mattress, but built into the wood slat, steel framed foundation. Same comfort, different principle of achieving it. You’ll have to visit Ron’s site, or, to download your copy of this great catalog. Or better yet, give Ron a call and he’ll send a hard copy to you. This is great news for those overflow visitors up in Aspen – finally a comfortable evening’s sleep!

Talking about having a global presence
16190_ 10/6/14 - We're speaking with the 'master of deception', that is in terms of finding those creatively hidden beds in some very cleverly designed, hand-built furniture, to achieve a dual purpose room. Located in Denver, FlyingBeds International, Inc. and Ron McKey, president/founder, are very well known locally and internationally. We're talking about having a global presence, and Ron tells us how it begins with the presentation of your best. In this case, at the show. That would be the Hospitality/Design Expo in Las Vegas this past May - with 900 exhibitors. It was a very good show for Ron because he was able to demonstrate to the hotel trade that you can lift a king-size bed with one hand. They were pretty impressed - it was a giant mattress in a very nice unit that he'd done for the Marriott Corporation. Right now in their factory Ron has two queens in a rustic cherry that are going to Bermuda with a very unusual finish to it. He's actually got a great amount of crazy stuff going through right now, including a bed from a New York designer that has antique books that came from London. It is actually books and a television put together... but you'll just have to look at the website where hundreds of amazing examples are displayed...

        Founder & President, FlyingBeds International Ron McKey, When doing Business Globally
1356_ 2/25/13 - Ron McKey is the Founder and President of FlyingBeds International; we're talking about doing business globally. Ron tells us that FlyingBeds is a two way company, he's noticed out in the market place that FlyingBeds is an exclusive, high-end presentation of Murphy beds, the Murphy Bed concept, in America. At Ron's factory here in Denver, he manufactures exquisite, unique Murphy beds. Murphy beds meaning beds that fold up into the wall. When he's out in the market place Ron said, "When I am selling over in Germany, Barcelona, Israel, Egypt; I've run across other companies that are just as unique as me in their concept. So, like the Italian bed that I bring in from the Colombo Company are the narrowest in thickness. Meaning they really fold up in 10" of space - that's amazing. But then over in Germany is a company owned by Karl Warner the Lift Bed Company and they take their beds and put them on the ceiling. They run them up by electric motor. That is cool. Very expensive but cool." Larry asked, "What are the most interesting challenges you face when dealing with these organizations overseas?" Ron replied, "They are always concerned with installation. It's relatively easy to decide on the design with email and the Internet, and we can over-night a sample to them and we can make adjustments and approve it." When asked, "What advice would you give other entrepreneurs wanting to do business overseas?" RM: "Well, you're not going to get any overseas commerce by being the lowest priced guy in the marketplace. This is my opinion, you're going to have to have something unique, either a great service or a product no one else is making. But I also bring back in products that are not available to Americans. I look at it as a fair trade. We're building a relationship with these other countries." Having worked with Ron on his website, Pat asked about the Shoji Bed and room Ron designed and created for a family living in Japan. Her question goes to Ron's background and how he does what he does. He chuckled and referred to his background as a dairy farmer from Oregon and a mechanical drawing class. He doesn't tell us about his work in the military, installing and repairing the electric wiring and cables in airplanes or his experience as a buyer or his university education in business and marketing. Pat's conclusion, there's... Listen, Watch and visit

Interviewed on No. 1 Internet Talk Radio Show 10/24/2011
Ron McKey, 
Make it earn the investment cost

Celebrating their 30th year in business, we've tracked down Ron McKey, founder of the Colorado based FlyingBeds. He's gone from Murphy Beds to FlyingBeds in more ways than one. He's had a ton of experiences, has a fabulous, unbelievable website, does a lot of business online not only in Colorado but all over the country and internationally. He is in all respects a real character - and it comes through... over the phone, in an interview and on his website - and people love what he is and what he does. His furniture is custom made and he helps the would be designer/client re purpose a room to be beautiful and valuable. Ron explains the problem with this concept is that not everyone is not a born designer - it just isn't in their blood. So Ron lends his vast experience to help guide the process. Starting with, what do you want this room to accomplish? One of my favorite lines, found on his website is the 'deceptive purpose' of a room. Ron says, "I want the room to become valuable. Make it earn the investment cost." It may look like a beautiful home office with fabulous surround furniture in Cherry (you'll positively drool looking at the photos on his site) that turns into a state of the art guest room for that special visitor, with a view of the Rockies over the Cityscape of Denver or Singapore or... He'll talk with you, work with you and help you bring out that special, one of a kind, heirloom quality room with the right questions, renderings, drawings and an entertaining conversation. We wanted to know what Ron's most difficult task was. He said it was getting the client to realize "we aren't a Murphy Bed company". It's the combination of Hollywood movies and sofa beds that are stuck in their mind. - Think "I Love Lucy". It is easy for the customer to forget we are a space design company and not a joke. Larry asked Ron why and/or how FlyingBeds is different from other Murphy Bed type manufacturers - Ron replied, We say, "What do you want?” not, “This is what we have." Listen for more...

A Letter from the president
Ron McKey


You are the most important part of our design theme. It is your assignment of the Murphy Room's purpose that guides us in suggesting how to make the room dual purpose.

The tour of this website will demonstrate our ability and reluctance to hide the Murphy Bed mechanism. We don't professionally photograph the installed system. In most cases, the installer had just packed up and turned around for the last time and snapped a photograph. There aren't any luxury bedspreads and throw pillows being sold here.

I have a guiding principle: Give me the largest room available. It is the most valuable. Now, let's hide a Murphy Bed that functionally compliments changing the room. Concentrate on the 'Closed Position'. That is what makes the Murphy Bed concept valid. When the bed is lowered, you have a bedroom….(you already have one of those!).

If you visit our Wall Bed showroom, you will be visiting our factory at the same time. We are the manufacturer of the
furniture surrounding the Murphy Bed lift mechanism. If you work with us without visiting, you will receive samples and full renderings of any Wall Bed system we design together. We delivery and install from Maui to Bangor.

Enjoy the tour. Call us at 888 892-4645 We look forward to delivering a new room for your house! I welcome a call anytime. Or send me an e-mail at [email protected].

All the best,
Ron, The Pilot

This is the Lift Bed System from Germany. A normal Murphy bed could not be lowered into this room because of the extension from it's storage space. But, if we take this king size bed and lift it into the ceiling the room magically becomes dual purpose. And, best of all, it's remote controlled - electircally operated! LINK to featured page.

Sofa/Bed in Solid Oak

This is Marlene's Oak sofa bed in San Francisco, near Noe Valley. This system has two pier cabinets 28" wide, each.

The day we arrived for installation of this system, we were told it was the first and last day of summer in San Francisco. By Gawd, they were right. The next day the winds came, the fog came, the rain came, and Mark Twain's famous saying came true to his word.
