I needed to expand my home office to include room for guests. After extensive research. I purchased the Lori Wall Bed. The shipping was very quick and it arrived in 3 packages. The assembly was completed by my husband in about 4 hours. My husband is a skilled wood worker and found some of the predrilled holes were misaligned, which is the only issue I have with this unit. I was able to match it with my existing office furniture from IKEA. All for a fraction of the cost of other murphy beds. I am still waiting on a mattress, but am pleased that I can get a more comfortable mattress for my guests compared with all-inclusive murphy beds.
We are very pleased! Easy to order, came quickly, easy to set up! I put it together in 3 hours by myself - it took me longer to stain it!
The instructional video was terrific and made assembly a piece of cake.
We are very pleased with the result - it looks great and its just what we wanted.
Putting together isn't too difficult, it's just super heavy. So moving it around is very hard. So recommend painting/staining before even starting the assembly process. It's sturdy and holes were very aligned, impressed with how precise everything was. The base (where the bed lies) has a few "gaps" so you can see the lines where the boards go together. Had hoped those would fit a bit more snug, but overall seems worth it.
Had to modify and add a few more screws around the latch system. For some reason, the piece that goes onto the nice outer section, my screws went right in between the boards causing them to separate. So I added a few screws to hold it together and all was well.
My husband put it together in no time by himself. Lori wall beds thought of everything in the making of this bed. we hadn’t put up baseboards before he built the bed oops, but when we looked behind the bed the lori bed designer already had a groove for us to slide the base board through . You guys thought of everything we love it!!
I did a lot of research on different Murphy beds ended up going with the Lori bed. I am so glad I did! The quality of the unit was amazing, all the cuts were perfect, the packing was perfect the unit came delivered in without a scratch on it! I stained each individual piece. Then I applied a urethane finish sanded the finish twice probably only need to do it once and apply another coat of matt finish. It was very easy to assemble using the YouTube video on my iPad and stopping it at each individual step. Now we have a beautiful Laurie Murphy bed that we are very proud of that we finished it our self. Thank you for the quality American made product!
This bed is well crafted. I love the shelves when it's closed. I love the bed because it's a platform bed and once we purchase a mattress the comfort will be awesome. I am glad I made this purchase.
We needed more at-home office space and decided to convert our guest room into an office. We looked at other wall bed options and were discouraged by the cost. Then we found Lori Wall Beds and based on the great reviews we decided to order one. We love it! The quality is fantastic and the instructions are thorough and easy to follow - especially with the videos. Thank you for providing this solution at a reasonable price.
We purchased this bed for our second home in the country. We decided to put it in the living room since it has the beautiful detail of shelves on the outside, which have a double purpose! We bought it unfinished and decided to stain it instead of painting, as to not add layers of paint and then run the risk of it not fitting properly in the cut outs it comes with. The stain was PERFECT! The wood that is used for this bed has beautiful detail and we are very pleased with the outcome. All of our guests have been very impressed with the bed as well. Building it definitely takes 2 people as mentoned on the website and the instructions that you download, by the way, they were very helpful and not confusing and even included mini clip videos you could refer to if needed! All in all we are extremely happy with the bed. We purchased a mattress for it and have slept in the it ourselves to test it out and it is great. We highly recommend this bed! Thank you Lori Wall Beds!
We ordered the Lori Wall Bed after stumbling upon it in a google search. After months of having my husband work from home without a dedicated office space, the time had come to make our guest room his office.
We have 5 young children and we are fortunate enough to have a spare bedroom in the house where grandparents can come stay with us from time to time. The reality is that spare room was really a 'laundry processing center' and laundry in various stages of folding and sorting would maddeningly get mixed up as kids would pop in and help themselves, mixing in their dirty clothes. A disaster!
The time of COVID has changed the way we work and live. It appears that my husband, who is considered high-risk, will be working from home for at least another year. Having a space more comfortable for working will serve us not only this year but further down the road as our work and living arrangements are permanently changed. We are very appreciative of this product. It is affordable to have the bed tucked neatly away, but still available to host others at a moment's notice.
The staff were helpful and answered questions we had about the bed. It arrived quickly and was assembled and installed in a few hours. The quality of the wood was obvious and the instructions were easily followed.
Now we just need a laundry management system!
Thanks Lori Beds!!
We needed to find a way to make use of our guest-room. It was basically wasted space, especially with Covid and the compete lack of overnight visitors.
The idea of a Murphy bed came up as a solution and everywhere we looked everything was just too expensive.
Then we found Lori Beds. The price was right and we found having the portion of horizontal vs vertical was great! The selection of finishes was really great too.
We picked the unfinished horizontal. That gave us the opportunity to pick colors and paint it ourselves.
It took about 4 hours to assemble. It was actually pretty easy. The video guide and the written guide together left no questions unanswered.
The bed is super sturdy and real easy to take up and down with how they fashioned the rockers at the bottom. Very well designed!
It’s a lovely and functional new piece in our new game room!
I still have to put the safety locks on the bed, but so far so good. Putting the bed together wasn't too difficult. I would recommend you have a quality power drill. I had one that was an older one, but I ended up having to buy a new one. Makes a world of difference putting the bed together. I used the video online to help me put the bed together. I appreciate the staining wipes. Overall, the material is nice and sturdy. I can't wait till I am done putting the final touches on the bed.
I purchased a vertical full/queen size bed and it is absolutely amazing. I put it in my home office so I could have space for guests and it was a perfect solution. It is well designed and was very straight forward to assemble. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a space saving bed or like me, looking to create a multi-use space.
How did I find Lori Wall Beds.... well, I moved..... AGAIN! The third time in 8 months! After moving so much this year and downsizing... and downsizing... and downsizing, I knew I needed a bed that was functional for guests but functional for me! I work from home - but not in the 'need a space for your computer' kind of way - I need shelves and places to put my tools and design gear. I free lance as a designer and have a lot of tools and gear to build, revamp, remake, redo and redesign...... but I also have a soon-to-be husband who gets posted around for his job with the Military. Just like this posting, we are in a place where houses are INSANELY expensive. We could only afford to buy a small house with limited space for this posting. I have to work with what I was given. And I'm actually really thankful I was challenged to re-think the small space. Had I not been given the challenge of how to accommodate guests staying with us plus me and my work, I'd never have found the MOST AWESOME way to celebrate both Work and Family. I'm serious. I know I sound enthusiastic but it's because I really am!! The Lori Wall Bed freed up an immense amount of space for me to create my creative work space. It also did it in a very aesthetically pleasing way. Not only is it functional but it's also really practical. Why wouldn't the legs of the bed frame also double as the shelving unit?! And I LIVE to build things. I really do! Putting the bed together (by myself, I might add) was not difficult! The YouTube video was excellent! I could work at my own pace and it was easy to follow and understand. I was a little hesitant about spending the money at first - especially with the US exchange, but honestly, the moment I freed up that room for me to begin building things again was the moment I started making back that money. To me, somethings are just absolutely necessary to live a happy life. Good tools are one of those things and the Lori Wall Bed is without question, an EXCELLENT tool that gives more freedom and flexibility to small spaces. And I honestly cannot thank Team Lori Wall Bed enough for producing such an awesome product. From beginning to end - from the purchasing to the delivery to the YouTube video assisted build, it has been a pleasurable experience and I have been singing LWBs praises ever since! And I will absolutely continue to recommend this product to friends, family, people I don't know.... I just honestly believe the word-of-mouth system from a trusted source is golden! You guys have truly made my year a great one - especially with all of the moves and I sincerely cannot thank you enough for making such a functional, aesthetically pleasing and all-round kick-ass product! You guys rock!! From the bottom of my heart, SO MUCH LOVE from Canada!!! xo Lindsay
Glad we bought this rather than a particle board Murphy bed. Needed to turn our guest room into an office and Zoom room that 4 of us can work from but Nana still needs to visit. Took my husband about 4-5 hours to put together but he is meticulous and took me about 8 hours to paint and another 4 to detail. But overall happy with how it came out. As others said it is heavy but I can do it with my two sons. My husband added an extra set of latches for safety.
My husband and I are very excited to add this queen wall bed to our guest room! It was delivered quickly and everything was provided in the boxes. It was easy to assemble, it took a few hours but very worth it. We will definitely refer this bed to friends and family! Thank you Lori Wall Beds!
It arrive ahead of time and was very easy to put together. Even if it is not in use as a bed, it is nice wall decoration
Bought the horizontal queen bed to make more room in my home office. Works great and was easy to setup.
I'm. So glad we decided on a Lori Wall Bed!! I will admit, After receiving the 3 boxes, and looking at it was very intimidating, but the resources, with PDF manual and step by step video installation/instruction on YouTube made this husband and wife task so fun! We love our Lori Wall Bed and so glad we decided to go this route for a wall bed.
At first I was skeptical, but once I got it I was beyond happy. I wish there were instruction or recommendations on how to best paint/strain the wood, but fortunately everything turned out great.
My husband and I have friends and family visiting regularly (well, pre-pandemic) and since his parents are from out-of-country, when they stay they come for a month. I'm now working from home, and wanted to turn our guest room into an office / play room for our infant. But when looking at other murphy/wall beds, they all seemed really flimsy, especially if someone's going to be sleeping on it for a month at a time! I'm so glad we got this one. I'm pretty handy (Ikea expert) and my husband follows my lead, but it took us longer than anticipated - about 4.5 hours total - the video and detailed instructions were great! I mounted directly to studs, and I couldn't be happier. It's such a sturdy piece of equipment. I could lift it, if necessary, but it's very manageable for the two of us. I'll get a lock once my child get so an age where he can start reaching knobs. Also, if you don't have a magnetic drill bit, GET ONE. it will definitely help.
I ordered the bed unfinished so it wouldn’t stand out. Primed and painted it white. Went together easily and works well,I will recommend this company.
Hubby and I had an easy time following the PDF guide and watching the handy Youtube Video while we assembled the bed. It’s a beautiful pine and we’re excited to dress up the unfinished bed with a combination of paint and stains.
