I've done a few of these. The client has a room with limited space but needs extra sleeping accommodations. A blow-up mattress, while temporarily useful, is not a practical long term solution. A murphy bed; that is, a bed on a mechanism that folds down and then lifts up out of the way and concealed behind an attractive cabinet is an excellent choice in such a circumstance. In this case, the client wanted the doors to slide out of the way so I had to design and engineer a way for 4 large solid wood panels to fold and slide to the touch. Another adventure with a happy ending.
