Project | Sleek Westchester Wall Bed
transFORM designer Melissa Fritz brings sophistication and sensibleness to a family’s Westchester home. Overall, the design was perfectly fit for purpose. Best of all, it allows the family to reclaim their space for a multitude of uses when their not playing host to family and friends.
What did they want? Did they have a favorite look or style they wanted you to create?
The goal was to create a multi-purpose unit that could accommodate out-of-town guests without interrupting the everyday functionality of their extra bedroom, as well as a space outside the unit to provide additional storage for collectibles and home decor. As far as aesthetics, they requested something elegant yet comfortable.
How did you create this?
Always thinking creatively, Melissa designed a full sized wall bed, flanked by made-to-measure bookshelves. Featured in a medium caramel melamine and tastefully accented with handle bow, oil bronze hardware, this innovative design displays a fabulous combination of style and function. Aesthetically, it's sleek and fresh but also homey and inviting.
The piston-driven lift mechanism lowers the wall bed in stages, preventing it from swinging down too quickly, making the bed easy to lower. Unlike sleeper sofas and futons, this wall bed does not contain uncomfortable metal springs under a thin, flimsy mattress. Instead, our units include a real mattresses on top of a flat and firm base to maximize comfort.
How did this project improve their lifestyle?
Overall, the design was perfectly fit for purpose. It’s customized to the style of the home and the personality of the family. It maximizes floor space while providing instant sleeping arrangements for out-of-town guests. Best of all, it allows the family to reclaim their space for a multitude of uses when their not playing host to family and friends.
