Why Wall Beds and transformable furniture?


Australia - traditionally the land of wide open spaces and spacious homes - now  faces increasing real estate prices and the need to live in a more sustainable way,

We now have the important opportunity to think about how we use the space we have.


Downsizing?  Seeking a more efficient and sustainable way of living?


Flexibility is now the answer - you do not have to sacrifice living space for comfortable living spaces for guests and family.


Furniture now needs to 'multitask' - to be able to take on more than one function.


When you don't need a dining table for 12 people - all the time; or a bed for the occasional guest - all the time... it provides choices- pack away the furniture when it is not needed and use your space in a more flexible way. 


Recent moves to working from home under COVID has also meant we have looked at our use of space more critically - a guest bed that also has a desk is far more useful than a room full of just a guest bed... a table that elevates to be a work surface also allows for multitasking .... 


So whether you have a commercial need; a growing family, a new hobby, or are now working from home,  we have the perfect solution in transformable and multifunctional furniture for you. 


Space can be flexible - so can your furniture.. 

Come and explore your possibilities.


Transformable Furniture puts more space in your life


In 2015, when I was starting to look at setting up my own business in Tasmania, I didn't know much about Wall Beds or transformable furniture - but I did know that my small spare bedroom that was dominated by a double bed (for occasional guests and family) was not going to function as my home office very effectively.


I had vague memories of those great 'fold out beds' from the old movies, and so I set out to find one. Great videos were also emerging on Facebook at this time of these amazing pieces of transforming furniture and Wall Beds. 


What surprised me was that there was very little information about on Wall Beds so my love of research, design and renovation took me on a 'discovery tour of Wall Beds', and after visits to Sydney and Melbourne - to see, touch and try all the Wall Beds I could find - I fell in love with the whole concept, and was very excited about their potential application in our busy lives here in Tasmania.


I identified the brands that I believe offer the widest range of wall beds - in terms of styles; quality and affordability - whilst also catering to the DIY person through to customised options.  


I also believe it's important for potential customers to have the opportunity to see and try these beds so showrooms were important- initially in a friends Joinery workshop (Thanks Wayne and Donna at Genuine Joinery!) - 'Fold Out Furniture' in Tasmania was born.

Now it is 2020 and we (as my wonderful team has grown) have learnt so much from our clients and the industry over these past 5 years.


We have seen how Wallbeds have provided a cost effective solution to meet people's' needs, whilst freeing up space in domestic; commercial; healthcare; tourism and holiday home settings. 

We have also seen the performance of these products over the past 5 years- and have even more confidence in the products we we sell and stand by.

We have also discovered many other wonderful space saving furniture items  over this time - gorgeous transformable tables and multifunctional furniture has inspired us further! 


I continue to be excited about transformable and space saving furniture and will contine to expand our range over the coming months to meet the other emerging needs identified by clients...  


We now have showrooms in Melbourne as well as in Hobart, along with Agents in Adelaide.... and we continue to sell and support our sales across Australia.


We look forward to working with you to help you find the perfect  and flexible solution for your space ,
