What a great addition to the model home! This wall bed is solid with a simple design. It was the piece that turned this studio into a stylish, fun and functional studio apartment. I love that there are no mechanical parts to deal with. It is a great solution for someone that may have a small studio or condo. Unlike other wall beds, this one could be moved. I definitely recommend!
We bought this so we could turn our guest bedroom into an office and workout room. The YouTube video instructions made it easy to follow. My one complaint is the last step of adding the hardware on came with no extra screws. The first few screws we tried that were provided for the hardware broke 😩 and these were the only screws that didn’t have extras.
Thank you for your review, Mel. Someone from our team will reach out directly, as we are happy to help correct this!
All the best!
The bed was easy to put together and looks great. I only wish I had decided to stain it before I put it together instead of after. I love it.
Overall, a great wall bed! We ordered the horizontal queen size. Really liked the price point, the quality of materials, and the aesthetic. It is not as simple to construct as other flat-packed furniture tend to be, but the video instructions were very useful. There were some challenges with the construction where we had to shave some of the notches to get the pieces to fit and also where couldn't figure out another way to lay the panels so that one of the uglier ones was hidden (we spent like 30 min just trying to do it and eventually gave up). Aside from the construction challenges, the installed bed itself is wonderful and I receive many comments from colleagues who see it on video calls!
I needed a solution for a bed in my apartment living room as I have a son and only a one bedroom apartment. A regular Murphy bed was too expensive and the installation was too invasive in my apartment. This bed is literally the perfect solution and easily portable in the event I move somewhere else. The quality of the bed and material it’s made out of is amazing and I am very picky when it comes to that stuff. Can’t recommend the Lori Wall Bed enough, you won’t be disappointed!
A compact, easy(ish) to assemble, comfortable bed for our guests - that is what we desired and got from our Lori Wall bed.
I read the directions multiple times, laid out all the parts and labeled them plus watched the assembly video twice. All of these instructions made assembly for us pretty straight forward. We are not super handy but we could follow the directions. It is an absolute must to have a good drill, there are so many screws, don't try this with hand tools.
Two small suggestions, Lori Bed should label all the wood pieces. The three boxes arrived and one box had all the wood pieces in it labeled but the other two boxes of wood pieces did not. It took an hour to sort them out and figure out what they were. Second, one piece was damaged and a couple were a little warped. Lori bed gave me a little discount for the damaged cabinet side. The warped pieces screwed into place no problem and did not make assembly difficult or change the final appearance, so not a problem in the end.
We thought it looked like a bar so we outfitted it with wine accessories!
Thank you so much for your review! We really appreciated the feedback on labeling the parts to help with assembly. We are in the middle of labeling all of the parts for every bed, so I apologize that only some of yours were labeled. This is something that will be fixed very soon but do apologize that was not ready in time for your bed and delayed the assembly a bit.
We really appreciate your feedback and hope you get great use out of your Lori Wall Bed for years to come!
All the best,

Sturdy, beautiful, super functional queen bed and mini bar. My wife and I are very happy with our purchase. Many benefits to this design if you have done your research.
- This bed feels like it’s made to go the distance, extremely sturdy.
-Beautiful, we bought the natural finish queen size
-Say what!??! When in the stowed position it is a perfect mini bar. We added two 24” flat top bar stools that double as night stands when the bed is in the down position.
-With the mattress attached (we bought a 9” memory foam) the platform is a hearty dead lift for me a 6ft. 195 lb. male. Probably best as a two person lift/lower.
-I’m nitpicking here. No direction sheet included in the box, I do give Lori props for not wasting paper they give you a link to a pdf that is quite detailed also a link to their full assembly youtube vid. I’m just old fashioned I guess and like a direction hard copy.
-This is my biggest con for this bed and it could be easily fixed. The youtube vid and the pdf do not mention that during the assembly of the bed platform that the 2.5” washer head screws are so thick that they might bulge the top veneer of the center braces on the “showing” side of your bed. I had 4 of these screws bulge/break through the veneer on the other side. This is only a danger on the platform seam pilot holes. Major bummer for me! I would say use a much smaller diameter and slightly shorter (2”) washer head screw for the platform seams. One last con is that the screws for the latches that attach to the platform stick out just a millimeter and could def wreck a knuckle while making the bed. I plan on filing the sharp point down.
All in all we are thrilled with this bed solution! I say it’s a definite yes if you are on the fence. Just take caution on the bulging screws and you will be happy. I have included photos of where the screws bulged I attempted to fix with wood filler.
This bed is made well! Easy to assemble with a simple but flattering design. We choose the horizontal style and are very happy with our purchase. Thinking of purchasing another!
It was not too difficult to assemble, has a great appearance. It is quick to let down or put up. The company was great about shipping and after care. The single negative is the corners of the shelves/supports, when the bed is down have some rather sharp corners that can scratch up your shins pretty bad. I'm going to have to knock off the sharp corners and maybe wrap them in some foam if I can.

We purchased the horizontal wall bed for our guest room so we would have more room for an office and gym. The assembly was easy, the video is worth the weight of the bed in gold! Great product!
Was able to put this bed together with help from the instructions and also the YouTube video. Looks awesome, really happy .
We purchased a QN size unit for our craft room to have a comfortable and beautiful space to host family.
We chose the unfinished wood to stain the piece to match our trim work. It was an ambitious undertaking but ultimately worth it!
Friendly tip - watch the video instructions during assembly. They are very helpful!
Very well packaged, it took two of us to build it, but following directions from the video was very helpful. It gave my small room the space I needed, and my guests were very comfortable and happy. Thank you, Sofia
What a guest bed journey this has been! We needed to turn our guest room into our daughter’s room, which meant we needed a bed in a bonus room in our basement that has a drop ceiling. This was the only bed we could find that would fit in the space. I love that it’s all wood and not a bunch of cheap boards. We went with the unfinished version to pick the color ourselves and then I got fancy and added wallpaper from Spoonflower (we primed the boards, waited 4 weeks for it to cure!, glued the boards together, then wallpapered) We love the final result.
Product: Lori wall bed - Queen size. Unfinished model.
Purpose: convert the guest room to office. Remove the cot and mattress to make room for day to day use of office. Yet, retain the option to switching back to guest bed room when need arises.
Our take on the product:
Beautiful yet so simple design.
The material is not really solid wood as mentioned in the description. Rather, it is made up of thin wood sheets glued together (plywood).
The overall material and constructed final product feels strong and sturdy.
Fairly easy to assemble. It took two of us and two hours to assemble (we are very comfortable in assembling similar furniture kits).
No mechanical levers or any sort of gadgets for lifting up or down. We liked the simplicity in the design. It is fairly easy to lift up or bring it down. Easy with two people.
It was difficult to fit the traditional queen spring mattress (IKEA brand). It became very bulky to lift and bed frame was not easy to fit into the frame. We are switching to a light-weight, 6 inch thickness, memory foam mattress.
Overall happy with the product. Value for the money and effort spent.
Normally I would let my husband do these type of things but he was out of town when the bed came.
I’m 51 years old and out of shape but, It took me about 10 hours (with breaks) and I got it done. I bought the natural wood with intentions of staining. This bed is very heavy to lift into place but doable. It’s very nice and between the directions and the video it went pretty smooth. I would suggest adding small stickers with numbers on them to help identify which piece goes where. All in all I’m happy with the product. My one small issue is attaching the hardware locks at the top split the boards. It makes me slightly uncomfortable with it being a play room for my grand babies so I’ll be adding extra latches.
The assembly was straight forward. Overall review of the wall bed, good! We got our floor space back! Some assembly tips: Make sure you borrow an extra cordless drill so you don’t have to keep swapping out bits. That will save some back-and-fourth frustration. Also, have plenty of level and clear space for assembly. The side panels have cutouts for modern/standard baseboard trim so the unit can rest flush with the wall. (See picture) My trim is much taller and ornate, so I had to modify with a contour gauge and a jigsaw if you have the same issue. As for the product itself, I think the bed foundation that doubles as a shelf is clever. The rounded shelves put off a neat deco vibe. When raising and lowering, it is best to have a helper. The mattress plus the wood base/foundation is quite heavy and awkward for one average person to lower and stow on their own. It can be done, but why make your life harder? My guests experienced comfortable nights and noted the sturdiness of the product.
Decided to repurpose a seldom used second bedroom into a home office. Researched Murphy beds for a while and was never satisfied with construction and the cost. Stumbled on Lori Wall Beds on Pinterest. The reviews sold me. Construction was a breeze. We selected the unfinished queen, primed and painted to match decor. Pay attention to the thickness of your mattress, anything over 13 inches will be tough to fit neatly. Bed is heavy, but can be handled. Really glad we found Lori Wall Beds.
I used the horizontal twin Lori Wall Bed. It works perfectly for that space. Assembly and finishing is a very satisfying experience.
Easy to put together, love the pre drilled holes. VertQ is heavy for one person to lift alone. I’m 5’3 & 135lbs.... put it all together myself!
The only thing I would change is to swap out the styrofoam packaging for something else. So much waste that doesn’t disintegrate.
The directions were clear, and the finished product is great. Definitely recommended.
Very pleased with how this turned out. We got the unfinished wood and were able to stain it to match some wood frames and furniture that is in our house perfectly. Very happy with the quality of this wall bed and all the added space it provides.
Our Lori wall bed was shipped very fast. Packed perfectly no damage. they make it easy for you to put together all parts were cut perfect and all hardware was all included. assembly went perfect.It looks great. great people to deal with and a great value. I would recommend this 100 percent . very satisfied.
This is a great addition to the guest room, now family room. It looks awesome and improves the function of the room so much! It was fun to put on our carpenter hats and put it together as well. Watching the video instructions was helpful.
