More Space Place was officially founded in 1987 as Murphy Bed Centers of America® in Jacksonville, Florida. However, you could say our vision began in 1894 in a small apartment in San Francisco. William L. Murphy wanted to invite women into his one-room apartment, and during that time society frowned upon women keeping company with bachelors in any room where a bed was in sight. So Murphy invented a bed that disappeared. More Space Place was established in 1987 as a single retail location to modernize the 1890’s concept of the Murphy bed. With seven locations and a growing space-saving furniture product line, the company officially changed its name to More Space Place in 1995. A year later, we moved our headquarters to Largo.
In 1998, More Space Place began its own manufacturing in a new 26,500 square foot manufacturing and distribution facility in Largo, Florida. By 2005, More Space Place exceeded the capacity of the Largo facility and moved to a larger location in Clearwater.
