DAY-BED, onusr. LoneUE, meanin I Application filed February 23, 1923. seriai No. 256,086.
My invention relates to a combination daybed, chaise longue and chair and the objects of my invention are: First, to provide a combination of this class in which a chair and chaise longue may be readily joined together to form a full length bed; second, to provide a combination of this class in which drawers are provided in the chair and chaise longue for receiving bed clothing such as blankets, pillows or the like for makin the bed; third, to provide a combination 0 this class in which the chair and chaise longue are secured together by means of a concealed hook device operated from either lower side of the chaise longue or chair; fourth, to provide a combination of this class in which the drawer provided in the chaise longue may be easily withdrawn from either side thereof, for convenience in positioning the bed; fifth, to provide a combination of this class which is adaptable for upholstered, stuffed or any kind of furniture; sixth, to provide a combination of this class in which the chair and chaise longue are similar in appearance with the conventional chair and chaise longue when they are separated; seventh, to provide a combination of this class in which the several components are easily combined or separated, which is durable and efficient and which will not readily deteriorate or get out of order.
With these and other objects in yiew as will appear hereinafter, my invention consists of certain novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts and portions as will be hereinafter described in detail and particularly set forth in the appended claims reference being had to the accompanying drawings and to the characters of reference thereon which form a part of this application in which:
Figures 1 and 2 are perspective views of the chair and chaise longue respectively shown in their separated positions; Fig. 3 is a perspective view showing the chaise longue and chair combined to form a bed; Fig. 4. is a transverse sectional view through 4-4: of
. Fig. 3; Fig. 5 is a fragmentary bottom view showing the method of joining together the chair and chaise longue; and Fig. 6 is a fragmentary sectional view thereof through 6-6 of Fig. 5.
Similar characters of reference refer to similar parts and portions throughout the several views of the drawings.
Chair 1, drawer 2, chaise longue 3, chaise longue drawer 4, stop member 5, hooks 6, catch 7 ,"hook operating bar 8, guide 9, and handles 10 constitute the principal parts and portions-of my combination day-bed, chair and chaise longue.
The chair 1 may be any style desired and is provided wit-h a drawer 2 which opens from the front side thereof far enough below the seat to provide room for the usual springsand padding. The chaise longue 3 has the general appearance of a conventional chaise longue and is preferably made to match the chair 1. A drawer 4; is provided in the side thereof in a low enough position to provide for springs and padding, as shown best in Fig. 4: ofthe drawings. It is preferred to have the drawer 4 of the chaise longue withdrawable from either side thereof. If however, it 'isdesired to open the drawer from only one side two sets of stop members 5 are provided. One set is mounted near the one side of the chaise longue and the outer set is mounted near the other side of the chaise longue. Each stop member 5 is pivoted at its one end portion and'normally hangs downward from its supported end.- When it is desired to use either set of stops, each stop is turned upward until the one side thereof rests against a pin 5a. This holds the stop in upward position where it engages the drawer 4:, as shown best in Fig. 4 of the drawings. Thus the drawer may be-moved from only one side and is held against further movement when flush with the sides of the lounge.
The chair and chaise longue are connected together by means of a hook member 6 which is pivotally mounted on the under, central, front portion of either the chair or chaise longue. As shown the hook is mounted on the chaise longue. Its one extended end is curved into a hook portion 6a which fits into a catch member 7 secured, in this case, to the chair 1. The other extended end of the hook member 6 is pivotally secured to an extended portion 100 8a of a hook operating bar 8. Said hook operating bar extends across the under side of the chaise longue and is slidably supported by guide members 9. The ends of the hook operating bar 8 terminate in suitable handles 10.
When it is desired to join the chair and chaise longue they are moved together so that their front sides are in engagement with each other, as shown in Fig. 3 of the drawings.
When the chair and chaise longue are in this position the hook and operating bar therefor I,
is in the position shown by dotted lines in Fig.
5 of the drawings. By pushing or pulling the handle 10, depending upon which side the operator is standing, the bar 8 causes the hook 6 to engage the catch 7 When thus secured the chaise .longne and chair are held in rigid relation with suflicient force to withstand ordinary use.
It is obvious from the construction as illustra-tecl in the drawings and described in the foregoing specification that there is provided a combination day-bed, chair andchaise longue in which two articles of furniture serve the functions that formerly 1 required three, thus conserving a considerable amount of space, and though I have shown and .described a particular construction, combination and arrangement of parts and portions, I do not wish to be limited to this particular construction, combination and arrangement of parts and portions but desire to include in the scope of my invention the construction, combination and arrangement substantially as set forth in the appended claim.
Having thus described my invention, what I-claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
In a combination of the class described, an upholstered chair, an upholstered chaise longue in engagement therewith, catch and hook means mounted on the under side of said chair and chaise longue .engageable with each other, and an actuating bar in connection with said catch and extending to bothsides-of said chair and chaise longue, whereby :said catch may be operated from either side thereof for separating said chair and chaise longue.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand at :San Diego, California, this 10th day of February 1928. MAUDE LILLIAN DE BRETTEVILLE.
