Multifunction beds began its history in San Francisco and was named after William Lawrence Murphy. He was living in a studio apartment and having trouble getting a date back to his living space. It was bad practice to bring lovers back to a bedroom, but that doesn’t leave much room for dates when the studio apartment is the kitchen, living room, and bedroom all at once. He invented, patented, and built the Murphy bed, which is still sold and used all over San Francisco. You can read a little more about Murphy beds on the Murphy bed wikipedia page.
