This California King was our 17th TV FlyingBed, and still the largest to date. The 70″ Sony television is housed in a Select Alder system of mitered raised panels. We used a custom wiping stain for color and semi-gloss lacquer for hue and depth. A real beauty.
An attractive pool-room setting in Los Angeles. But you know us, we prefer to show you the mechanical part of our expertise. Four compression power packs, with tubular steel frame electrically arc weld with strengthening struts.
Every one of our systems is stood up in the factory before shipping. We almost always have TV murphy beds scheduled in the manufacturing line.
Even with the television off, this black-oiled lacquer finished murphy bed system looks very elegant in Mrs. Norris’s living room. This system is 71″ wide, $7,500. Pull the stainless-steel handles and a queen-sized bed is lowered into the room. The 42 inch television remains 7″ off the floor when the bed is lowered. — Don’t ask the other guys to attempt this trick.
Mrs. Norris’s mattress is 14-inches thick. Very comfortable, but you can use any mattress you like. We just need to know the thickness and weight so we can calibrate the mechanism for your mattress.
This far into the development of the unique combination Murphy Bed and Television has been aided by the development of ultra-thin TVs. Not only are the televisions wider, they are lighter making them easier to lift and to hide away.
A negative to the development of the ultra thin televisions is sound reproduction. You’ll notice, located below the TV is a separate sound system by Sony. We have also used Polk sound systems. Either one adds theater surround sound.
This system was built for Gerald in Houston and is solid Cherry with a Dark Walnut stain and Number 40 sheen lacquer final. This configuration of mitered, raised panels is more elegant than these factory pictures suggest.
The method of manufacture for our Television Murphy Bed configuration involves custom structural modifications to the steel frame supporting both the TV and mattress. You choose the TV and soundbar, and ship them to our factory so we can remake the frame for your unique system.
