Mr Wall Beds Melbourne – An Interview Pt 1

Recently I was interviewed and grilled slightly by one of my clients!

Why should I buy your wall bed compared to any others?

Our wall beds come from Chicago and are the real deal. I went to many trade shows in the USA and compared products and also compared products that were already available in Australia. I found the Chicago Murphy Beds to be the best quality wall bed (including their amazing mattresses) and started importing them because they were so well made and designed.

Why do most people buy your wall beds?

Our past clients have bought a wall bed mainly because of room space issues. Some have bought a wall bed to replace trundle beds with thin and uncomfortable mattresses but the majority of orders are to get a room to be more functional and to use the space more effectively. It’s a living decision, often smaller rooms are immediately cluttered and cramped with a normal bed whereas a wall bed eliminates this issue.

How did you become Mr Wall Bed?

About 15 years ago I brought the Chicago wall beds to Australia and they were great because their design also allowed us to create or add our own cabinetry such as book shelves and cupboards. This help our clients buy a proper piece of furniture that was well installed and look amazing as it match the decor of the existing room. I guess if you’ve been involved in wall beds for as long as I have you get to earn your stripes.

Are wall beds becoming more popular?

We have found the market is growing especially as people downsize in retirement and apartment living is becoming more popular. Having said that we have found all sorts of people are buying wall beds including Air BnB owners. The word is certainly spreading. One of our most popular wall beds is a wall bed with a folding desk as this helps create space but also gives you a home office function.
