Sofa Beds Vs. Murphy Beds

When looking for a space-saving place to sleep, many people think a sofa bed is their only option. While sofa beds do offer a two-for-one on functionality, they are usually uncomfortable, difficult to unfold, ruin bedding, and require maintenance over the years, leaving you with a less-than-ideal solution.

But there is a far better option – wall beds, and specifically, wall beds with sofas. Wall beds and wall bed sofas offer multipurpose solutions without sacrificing comfort, quality or beauty.. Because wall bed mattresses don’t have to fold, they are much higher quality mattresses that are designed to be slept on every day – with no uncomfortable bar in the middle of your back! With a wall bed sofa, not only do you have a real bed at night, but the entire bed easily folds up into the wall, revealing a sofa during the day. Plus, you can leave the bedding on the bed without worrying about it getting caught in the mechanism.

Wall bed sofas offer the best of both worlds – a real bed, a beautifully designed, comfortable sofa, and extra space in your room when the bed is folded up.

At Resource Furniture, we offer a wide selection of wall bed sofas, from queen beds to twin beds to bunk beds – so you know you’ll find one that works in your space. Plus, we offer a wide range of fabrics and finishes to customize pieces to your design taste.

Murphy beds have been around since the early 1900s — since then, however, their design has improved considerably. Today’s wall beds are more sophisticated and multifunctional than ever before, making them a great addition to any home, guest room or small apartment.

Resource Furniture has a carefully chosen inventory of Murphy bed/couch combination furniture that effortlessly converts between a place to sleep at night and a place to sit during the day. We’ve partnered with the Italian furniture maker Clei to offer smart, stylish designs that solve some of the most persistent issues associated with apartment living.


The biggest drawback to a conventional wall bed is that, in most cases, all it offers is additional floor space — if you wanted to use a couch in its place, that couch would still need to be stored somewhere when the bed is folded down. Our products solve this issue by automatically converting to a sofa when not in use. Switching between the two configurations is easy, as there are no additional parts to store or tools required.

Applications for our Murphy sofa beds are virtually limitless. Use our products:

  • As a more comfortable, stylish alternative to a conventional sofa bed
  • To free up space in a studio apartment or to convert your bedroom into a living room when not in use
  • In guest suites or other rooms where occasional sleeping spaces are required

Whatever your specific requirements are, our products are a natural evolution of the Murphy bed concept.
