11 Claims. 1

My inventionas described herein, and illustrated inthe accompanying drawings, consists of furniture, an object of which is to provide 1a combination table and chair set formed in a single unit.

Another object of my invention is toprovide a table and chair unit which the chairs have swinging action.

Aiurther object of this invention is to provide ecombination table and chair set, the frame. of which is of tubing and "the table .andiour'chairs areformed in a single unit.

' Other features and advantages will become more readily apparent from the followin description and the accompanying illustrative drawings in which:

Figure 1 is an elevational view of my invention, Figure 2 is a top plan view thereof, broken away,

Figure 3 'is a transverse sectional view: of the device,

Figure 4 is a perspective view of a chainbroken away, and

Figures 5 and 6 are detail views.

While one embodiment of myinvention is illustrated in the above referred to drawings, it isto be understood that they are merely for the purpose of illustration and that various changes in construction may be resorted to in the course of manufacture in order that the invention may be "utilized to the 'best advantage accordingto circumstances which may arise, without in anyway departing from the spirit and intention .of my device, which is to be limited only in accordance with the appended claims. And while I have stated the primary field of utility of my invention ,it remains obvious that it may be employed in any other capacity wherein it may be found applicable.

In theaccompanying drawings; and in the following specification, the :same reference characters are used to designate the same: parts and elements throughout and which |0,-1refers to my invention in its entirety and N, indicates a sion'3l, is curved around at right angles to form aback piece 33., .for the chair 20, and parallels "the tube .26. li'rom the wpant :34, element 33, is

in parallelism with element13l, as at 35, all of the elements 3| :to "35, being on a common plane with the frame 24. However, the arm .35, is aboutone-half thelengthxof arm ;3|, and at its horizontal end :38, is curved down vertically ho'a point 31, about seventeen inches from a door level, and forms a support .39, for the arm 35.

From the point 31, the tube is inclined rearwardly down to said level 38, to form a leg 40, whichis turned rearward'ly at 4|, on said level and extends horizontally as "at 42, for a short distance where it is curved at .43, back to parallel elementn33, as at M, to the return portion 415, iorminga foot :piece 46., and then inclines upwardly and outwardly as at 47, to form a leg conforming to leg 41!. The leg 41, from its upper portion; extends vertically as at 49,.and is coupled at 50, with the element 3|. The elements'iromii l to 49, form a frame section 5|, which together with similarly formed frame sections :52, 53 and 54, form a complete frame-work 55., iorthe said table top 'I and for chairs l2 .tg123. 'Each of the elements .2 6 to 28, and the elements 33, are connected by tubes 56, paralleling the sections 3|, and together therewith form supports forthe arms |6 to l9, which, as stated, extendiromthetable top H. The vertical arm supports 39 to 44, are connected at the points 31 and 48,:by ahorizontal crossbar 5'1, 'forming parts of saidframework 55.

Pivotallyssupported upon each of the members 33, by theout-turned flanges 58 and 59,. are chair backs 6.5, the lower ends 6| and 6.2, of which flanges are pivoted to a :rod 63, which bears pivota-liy in the-rear terminals .64 and 65, of the downturned vflangesclili and 6'|, of :a chair seat 68. The said flanges and -61, are reduced in depth as at .89, to ride over the bar 5], and the edges 10,01 the-flanges :formstops to limit the inner "movermentlof thezswinging chair 20. The free .forward .edge H, of the chair seat .68, is preferably curved down as shown. Fixed to the bottom of the :seat 16.8., by right-angular terminals 12 and 13, is a rod 14., 'hetweenwhich and the chair seat the tube 51 extends, whereby movement of the chair is limited.

=0! course the table top and its extending arm rests, the chair backs and seats may be made of any suitable material, but I prefer either plywood, metal or plastic. The chairs are so aracre-with the legs or feet of those using the table,

nor are there chair legs so located as to so interfere. Thecha'irs may be easily swung by drawing in the upperedge 5, of the backs thereof to again curved around and extended substantially-6.

provide ample space 16,101 persons to passin'be- It is thought that persons skilled in the art to which the invention relates will be able to obtain a clear understanding of the invention after con sidering the description in connection with the drawings. Therefore, a more lengthydescription is regarded as unnecessary.

Changes in shape, size and rearrangement of details and parts such as come Within the purview of the invention claimed may be resorted to, in actual practice, if desired.

Having now described my invention that which I claim as new and desire to procur by Letters -Patent is: Y
