Folding bed with a sofa – which one to choose?

A folding bed with a sofa has more than one face. Depending on the mechanisms used in it, we can choose different models of beds with additional functionalities. Thanks to this, we can choose the bed exactly what we expect. Today we present two different models of folding beds with a sofa – Smartbed O Sofa and Smartbed V Sofa Box. We advise which bed in what space will work best and what we can expect from … a modern sofa with smart bed.

A folding bed with a sofa, such as Smartbed O Sofa

Smartbed O Sofa is a double folding bed  that closes horizontally. Most often, this model of furniture is called a wallbed. Although, when it comes to solutions, the modern wall wall has little to do with its predecessor from the last century. Thanks to modern mechanisms, the bed opens or closes noiselessly and smoothly. Changing the arrangement of the bed from day to night and vice versa takes only a few seconds. Thanks to the retarders and gas cylinders, the front of the bed with the mattress and bedding appears and disappears automatically – all you need to do is initiate its movement by pulling in the right direction.

Sofa attached to the front of the bed also opens and closes automatically. The backrest of the sofa and all its elements hide under the bed during sleep, and only the sides of the sofa – armrests remain visible. During the day in the folded version we have a full-size sofa – BUT – its width depends on the width of the bed. Due to the fact that the bed opens horizontally, this piece of furniture is recommended in narrow rooms or with an arrangement that prevents vertical opening of the bed. The so-called. “wagons” rooms are a place where a wall mural finds its best place. But it is not everything. Because the piece of furniture is not high in itself, it fits well in rooms with small-size furniture. And last but not least: Smartbed O Sofa can be an independent piece of furniture or be a part of a building designed by us or already existing.

A folding bed with a sofa, such as a Smartbed V Sofa Box

Our Smartbed V Sofa Box is a folding bed with a sofa for special tasks. The vertically retractable bed has the same systems and modern solutions as the Smartbed O Sofa described earlier. So it guarantees equally comfortable rest and sleep, and comfort of use. What distinguishes this model above all is the sofa. Which you can design and adapt to your needs:

  • it can be attached to the front of the bed or it can be an independent piece of furniture
  • as an independent element of the bed – if necessary, it is an additional place to sleep
  • instead of traditional backs, it has comfortable, soft cushions that need to be removed before unfolding the bed. What to do with them then? Read on…
  • under the sofa seat there is a large chest: for those cushions, additional bedding (the beds in the Smartbed wardrobe hide not only “out” but also bedding), everyday items of rare use
  • the sofa can be any size (see photo), independent of the width of the bed
  • the sofa can be symmetrical, asymmetrical, it can also be a corner sofa
  • depending on expectations, it can have 2 armrests, 1 armrest, 0 armrests
  • when opening the bed, regardless of whether it is attached to its front or not, it folds and hides under it like a traditional sofa in wall bed.

 

Two folding  beds with a sofa, seemingly very similar. And yet completely different. Which one to choose, we leave it to you to decide…

Murphy bed in the office? Yes, from Transforms.

Recently, we wrote in what spaces our Smartbed Desk bed works. To mention that it goes not only to homes. That is why today a few words about how a folding bed works in commercial spaces. We will not only write about it, but also show. Thanks to our latest implementation: Smartbed V Sofa our retractable bed designed especially for the architectural office in Frankfurt.

A murphy bed for the office – and what for?

A murphy bed is a rational and functional solution for office spaces. It works in every small company that tends to work “after hours” – architectural studios, software mills, design offices. The opportunity to rest, when time and dates are chasing, will be appreciated by every employee who likes or has to work at night.

A retractable bed is also a convenient solution in companies whose employees operate in various places in the country and “fall” into the office once in a while. They are looking for accommodation as close to the company as possible. And thanks to the bed hidden in a wardrobe, standing e.g. in a conference room, the problem of accommodation is quickly and finally solved.

This is the function of the Smartbed V Sofa in a fully enclosed building, which was recently erected in an architectural studio in Frankfurt. Customer expectations were an interesting challenge for us. Bed in the closet to the conference room + very unusual building according to the author’s design + remote control of the bed.

Murphy bed for the remote control? – for whom?

The murphy bed for the remote control works when its everyday user is of small height, has limited mobility, is elderly or … is a person who values ​​comfort above average. The remote control mechanism is located in the back of the bed, with easy access to it (why it is important, about this in a moment) and discreetly – it remains invisible. The bed opens to the remote control, which means that it can happen by accidentally pressing a button when, for example, the remote control moves somewhere on the sofa. In order for the bed to not start to fall apart unexpectedly, special retarders were installed in its mechanism. There is time to react and find the pilot.

And what happens during a power failure? we hear this question very often. To avoid complications in such an uncomfortable situation, the remote control mechanism has built-in electric batteries that will allow the emergency closing or opening of the bed. Thanks to the easy access to the mechanism, the batteries can be changed quickly and efficiently.

The murphy bed for the office – details of the implementation

There are Transforms projects that are extremely close to us. Thanks to the unusual arrangement of space, colors, original ideas of customers. For the first time we were building a bed with buildings composed of cubic cabinets. In a variety of colors, each opened differently. With two types of fronts, mounted on or inside the housing. Cabinets give the impression of accidental “scattering” on the wall, however, creating a well-planned whole. The building ends with an asymmetrical, unusual opening cabinet ideally suited to the angle of the ceiling.

The whole is complemented by a quilted, intensely green sofa. And the bed. With backlight, remote control and comfortable Sembella Amber Dream mattress. Maximum use of space, multi-functionality and aesthetics. This is our view, this Frankfurt implementation.
