Application filed November 7', 1921. Serial No 513,464. f

Be it known that I, VALENTINE Lnwan- DOSKI, a citizen of the'Unite'd States; residing at Chicago, in the county of Cookand, State of Illinois, have invented certainnew and useful Improvements in Combination Furniture, of which the'following is a specification.

furniture and more particularly to a childs desk or table having seats connected thereto and adapted tobe folded ,under said table.

Another object of the invention is to.provide a table or desk having seats-onthe sides thereof and means whereby said seats may Like reference characters indicate like parts throughout the following specifications and in the several views and in the drawings in TVlllOlIl indicates a' desk ortable having seatsor benches 2 and 3 con? s-p'ectively, by means of'link members 18,5 9;

10v andll, the inner ends of each of said members being pivotally connected to the inner surfaces of 's'aid legs'fand the *outer ends of which are pivotally connected to the legs 12 and 13 of bench 2' and 'lt'and 15 of bench 3, said links being adapted to assume substantially vertical positions or positions substantially parallel with the table legs when the-benches 2 and 3 are folded under thetableas hown in Figure 2. The legsi and 6, and 5 and 7, respectively, are connected together bycross brace members 16 and 17 which members are,

I in turn; connected up to a central brace .18

upon which the, edges 19 and 20 of the seats 21 and 22 of said benches, when folded'under the table seat, the links 8, 9, 10 and 11, respectively holding the ends 23 and 24 on a plane horizontal with'said edges 19 and 20 when the benches are folded under the-table.

Dowel pins 25 and 26 are provided in the links 8 to 11 and in the ends 27, 28, 29 and 80 of said benches the latter to engage the relates to improvements in.

I nected to thelegs {Land 5 and Band 7frelinks, in "ea-1 the benches to limitift-heir' downward movement and the ,former'to engage the tablelegs to limit the inward'1novement-of said links. In a device-as above adescribed the benches are alwayshe'ld in position relative to the table and so that they cannot. be turned over and furthermore when not in use said benches may be I readily folded under and withinthe space occupiedby the'table' an d'co-nsequently out v of the way. i I
