World’s Most Compact Murphy Beds from Northern Italy’s Furniture District
The Colombo Family History of Manufacturing Functional-Change Furniture
Historically, the Colombo family has made furniture since 1907.

Since then, Colombo has produced home furniture by combining high quality craftsmanship, innovation and research. During the Eighties, the group diversified and set up different companies with separate corporate missions and policies.

Colombo 907, the company set up by Lino Colombo, has led and still leads the way in technological research. The furniture industry must increasingly face the challenge of rationally using smaller living spaces. This entails having to use areas not normally used by traditional furniture to increase capacity, without sacrificing free space. Furnishing solutions have been designed (such as sofa beds and futons) which are able to satisfy daily needs but, generally speaking, are uncomfortable and not very practical.

In order to face these issues, and focusing more on quality of daily life rather than on emergency solutions, Colombo 907 has developed wall mounted beds, freestanding beds, and sofa beds with the following features:

Safety and Reliability: strong steel frames and easy-care melamine panels
SEase of use: gas pistons gently lift and lower the bed
SComfort: high density foam or memory foam mattresses supported by flexible beechwood slats
SModular design: desk beds and sofa beds give the room a dual purpose
SAesthetic value: clean lines, classic and designer color options
SCompact, Space saving: most models store in only 11” of depth from the wall

These features have been included in the entire SmartBeds collection produced by Colombo 907. Colombo 907 manufactures and exports the SmartBeds collection all over the world, which solves space problems for thousands of people. The value of the SmartBeds collection has also been appreciated by the hospitality, naval and community industries. Commitment, technological research and collaboration with the best designers will continue to ensure the company’s future development of furniture made to allow users to live comfortably, even in small living spaces.

I have been manufacturing and installing Murphy Beds and Wall Beds since 1981. Over the years I have built and sold thousands of Murphy Beds and I have become recognized as an authority in this unique industry. Today, with the lifestyle trend towards more urban living and people making better use of the space in their homes, there is more interest than ever in well-designed, high-quality Murphy Beds.

My company started importing the world’s most compact and unique Murphy Beds from Italy in 2000. The first bed I brought in at the time was the Castello Bunk Bed for the resort community in Colorado. It was so well-received that I decided to grow the line.

Slowly we added more unique models to the presentation until in 2008, we offered the entire line from Lino and Franceso Colombo. We now proudly market this unique/quality manufacturer throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

We stand behind our product and our strong guarantee is proof of our quality. You can trust that you will be satisfied with the arrival and quality of your Murphy Bed from Italy.

I love my new Boss bunk bed! I slept in the bottom bunk and it was quite comfy.

“Dave and I had a great experience working with Ron. I had seen the bed/desk on the website and when we were in Denver and stopped by to see the actual merchandise Ron was very helpful, personable and informative. We got all the information we needed. The bed was delivered in the window promised and with a little “help from our friends” we got everything put together and we are very happy with the unit. The bed is comfortable and we are so happy with the office space we were able to create. There was one glitch with the tabletop and Ron made sure it was taken care of without any problem. (I would recommend that you check the boxes carefully when they are delivered for any dents and the like, before the delivery people leave.) The whole experience was a pleasure and I’d recommend Flying Beds International very highly.”

“The bed is very comfortable. The mattress has just right amount of firmness. I have had a great night’s sleep every time I have slept on it. My 70 year old in laws also say it is very comfortable and they are not easy to please!”

Ron and Shaon, Austin, TX
“We have a a very high end couch with a hide a bed and there is simply no comparison. Our flying bed is more comfortable and much easier to set up and put away. Being able to leave the items on the shelf when using the bed is a feature we really appreciate.”
