The Tuck collection from the amazing Casa Kids, is aptly named for its ability to "tuck" away to make room for daytime activities. The Brooklyn based design studio launched Tuck right after New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg announced that the city will soon be testing the livability of 250 square foot “micro-apartments." The Tuck Collection is ideal for modern urban spaces, and perfect for living in a diminutive dwelling -- featuring a series of variably sized beds that seamlessly fold away when not in use.

The Tuck bed is Casa Kids’ modern and minimalist improvement of the classic Murphy Bed. Tuck may be mounted either horizontally or vertically, which means it will perfectly adapt to virtually any living space. Instead of the typical unattractive Murphy Bed exposed bottom, Tuck features a fresh and uniquely attractive bottom comprised of either a magnetic face or a chalkboard. The Tuck collection also features optional modular shelving units in case you need more versatility and storage space.
Super Space Saving
Once Tuck folds up, it takes up just 12 precious inches of floor space, leaving plenty of room for kids to play or for adults who simply want to do more with what little space they have. Because it tucks away, Tuck is ideal for small spaces, shared sibling bedrooms or works well to accommodate an impromptu overnight guest.
Tuck beds come in Twin and Full sizes. Customers may choose between a shiny and modern magnetic face or a chalkboard surface that allows kids to get creative. Because the beds can be mounted horizontally or vertically they’ll work in any home and the optional shelves are perfect for books, toys and other items.
Like all Casa Kids beds, the Tuck collection is constructed of all-natural birch plywood. Casa Kids uses baltic birch plywood, a material certified by both the FSC (Forest Steward Council) and CARB (California Air Resources Board) for most of their products. This company uses zero particle board and their bonding glue is formaldehyde-free. All finishes are water-based, non-toxic, acrylic and have no VOC’s (volatile organic compounds).
Casa Kids Safety
Safety is a top priority at Casa Kids. Their furniture is manufactured entirely onsite in their own woodshop in Brooklyn, meaning the company, not a third party, controls the building process from start to finish. All Casa Kids products meet or exceed the U.S. mandatory and voluntary safety standards developed by the ASTM. Casa Kids also works hard to remember that safety goes far beyond compliance and materials. For example, Casa Kids keeps in mind that kids tend to climb on furniture, yank on bookshelves and fly into pieces at top speed, so they build with how kids act in mind, additionally rounding all edges and installing rails that are higher than what regulation demands.
The Tuck collection is fairly affordable, considering its space-saving benefits, eco-friendly materials and longevity. Tuck Twin is $1,800.00; Tuck Full is $2,200; and side cabinets may be added for $800.00. Delivery and installation in NYC is $400.00, while shipping outside of NYC varies in price, so you’ll need to contact the company for information. To learn more about Tuck, visit Casa Kids.
