Although many people know Murphy beds from ’80s and ’90s sitcoms, they became popular in 1900s silent films (albeit under a different name).Most homes don’t include built-in Murphy beds anymore. Although these beds save space, they declined in popularity during the ’90s and 2000s. However, they started to come back into style during the 2010s.
