In order to help you better understand the best wall bed options in Miami, we put together this list about 14 facts and FAQs about our wall beds.

With different kinds of sofa/wall bed units the bed can be completely concealed for day use and for night time, easily pulled down without having to remove anything from its shelf.


The CLEI systems allow for any room of the house to have a multi function including your home office. The LGM (pictured above), is a revolving bookcase that hides a queen sized Murphy bed. Without having to remove or redistribute ANYTHING on its shelves, the system spins to reveal a wall bed.
