Built-In Wall Units & Murphy’s Beds
Here at AFB we create custom built-in cabinetry that turns simple rooms into stunning spaces. Our mission is to provide exceptional design input and a level of craftsmanship that’s seldom found in this day and age. From home offices, to entertainment centers, to custom libraries, we first strive to understand how you want your finished project to look and how you’re going to use it. Then, we develop a design that’s as beautiful as it is functional. Finally, we blend high-quality materials and fine finishes with our keen attention to detail to craft and install each piece. For us, capturing the spirit of your vision is just as important as the quality of our craftsmanship.
There are many factors that contribute to great built-in cabinetry design: intelligent space planning, smart storage solutions, and outstanding details. These concepts form the basis of each and every project we produce. After getting an understanding of your requirements, our team works with you on a design that combines our technical expertise and years of practical knowledge with your unique vision. Then we put our skills and experience into motion, turning that design into a reality that exceeds your every expectation.
When it comes to built-ins, we’re not fans of the “one size fits all” approach. Whether you need a media cabinet that fits a nook in your living room or an elegant bench that stores hats, gloves, boots and a soccer ball, we have the expertise to successfully bring even the most unconventional of designs to life. Our one and only goal is to create distinctive built-in cabinetry that’s beautiful, functional, and a perfect compliment to your lifestyle and home.
AFB creates our built-in cabinetry to the same high standards we maintain for our heirloom quality custom furniture. We have years of experience blending the best of old-world techniques with modern-day tools and practices. We also offer environmentally friendly versions of our cabinetry which combine our exquisite craftsmanship with the benefits of “green” construction materials and techniques.
With many people living in studio apartments, it would be hard even today if we lived with those societal norms! In a Toronto studio, it can be hard to entertain with a queen sized bed sitting pretty right in the middle of the room. Indeed, some studios can feel like a bedroom with a stove, but there’s nothing wrong with that if you’re not planning on having banquets in your cute West Village apartment. For inventor William Murphy, his one room apartment simply would not be acceptable for entertaining a young opera singer. He could not disobey the strict moral code that did not allow for young ladies to go unaccompanied into the bedroom of a gentleman. This courtship swung on the hinges of a bed that we all know very well today.
An Older Designed Murphy Bed Hidden in a Home Office Closet
His solution: a new take on the fold-up bed that would turn his bedroom into a living room. He worked on a new design that not only created a living space loophole that would lead to his marriage of that young opera singer, but this new design would revolutionize small living spaces around the world! His pivot and counterbalanced design, received patents in 1912 and continue to work in many different living situations until this day.
