The Penelope: Unassuming, Attractive and Functional

Penelope units are versatile space-saving beds that efficiently meet your needs for multifunctional furniture in New York City and beyond. You can use it to transform a living room into a guest room, to make a child’s bedroom into a playroom, school, or simply provide plenty of living and entertaining space in a studio apartment while still giving yourself a real, comfortable bed to sleep.

If you’re decorating a new apartment, queen wall beds like the Penelope are a great place to start. Once you know you’ll have a feeling of extra space and that a bedroom is suddenly optional, you’ll have a real advantage when designing the look of the rest of the space. And you’ll know you’re starting with a piece of furniture you can trust because you get a warranty on all wall bed mechanisms with the Penelope.

Enjoy Space-Saving Convenience and Ultimate Comfort with the Penelope

In the old days of Murphy beds in New York City and beyond, the benefit of space-saving beds was considered worth trading off some comfort. That’s not the case with our queen wall beds. Penelope is a comfortable bed that you’ll be more than happy to sleep in every night, even as you easily hide it away every morning. It’s the ultimate marriage of comfort and convenience.

So, it doesn’t matter whether your priority is saving space, having a comfortable sleeping area in a small space, or enjoying flexible décor. The Penelope does it all.
