Default Folding (Murphy) Bed Plans

I'm looking for plans to build a folding bed - sometimes these are known as Murphy Beds (I do not know why - does anybody here?)

If anybody knows a source for the mechanical parts of the folding mechanism (ie the spring etc that helps lift the bed up again and takes the weight when it's coming down) in the United Kingdom, I would be grateful.

This is my first post. Thankyou for your help.

Regards, Mike

I'll try to hit all your questions:

William L. Murphy applied for a patent for the Murphy bed on April 1, 1916 and was granted Design Patent D49,273 on June 27, 1916. Murphy started the Murphy Wall Bed Company and began production in San Francisco. In January 1990, the company changed its name to the "Murphy Bed Co. Inc." (wikipedia)
