PRLog - Jan. 19, 2009 - CORVALLIS, Ore. -- The Noir, a modern Murphy bed concept and design, is the brainchild of Old Creek’s President, Shaheen Ghiassy. Ghiassy strived to build a green Murphy bed that responsibly harvested from renewable resources, used recycled materials both in the processes and packaging, buying locally to decrease the eco-imprint and finally to create a Murphy bed that integrates three key components, style, multi-functionality and most importantly eco-friendliness.

The inspiration behind the Noir’s sleek, minimalist exterior comes from Ghiassy’s approach to design simplicity. Many other Murphy bed retailers undertake the design process as a cabinet maker, not as a furniture designer. “When you strip away all the clutter and trim work, you’re left with a simple, sophisticated, and modern piece of functional furniture,” commented Ghiassy. “This basic idea was the overall motivation for the Noir.”
Old Creek has sourced all of its raw materials and woods from Forest Steward Council (FSC)-certified companies to construct the internal and external structure of the Noir, along with avoiding any woods treated with fire-retardant chemicals called polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs). Old Creek has mandated that the Noir be 100% free from toxic substances, this includes but is not limited to urea and formaldehyde, an alleged carcinogen.
