This invention relates to that class oi' household furniture known as soi'a-bedsteads, and it consists in certain improvements in the I5 construction of thesanie and novel combina tions of parts, which will be hereinafter fully described and claimed.
According to our invention, the sofa-bedstead is provided with two mattresses, the 2o upper of which is provided with a double series of springs, the one series arranged above the other. The upper mattress is upholstered on both its upper and lower sides, and is hinged to the frame of the lower mattress, so that when opened to form a bed the lower side of the upper mattress will form a continnous spring-surface with the upper side ofthe lower mattress.
The frame of the sofa is combined with a 3o drawer, which forms a reccptaclefor the bedclothing, and when drawn out a frame for the support of the upper mattress.
In the accompanying drawings, in which corresponding parts are designated by similar 55 letters,Figure lis a perspective view showing the parts open. Fig. 2 illustrates in perspective the position of the drawer. Fig. 3 is a transverse verticalsection; Fig. 4, alongitudi- I which, D, contains one set, d.
nal vertical section, and Fig. 5 a perspective View of the drawer.
The main frame of' the sofa is provided with solid ends A A', and a back piece, B, extending entirely to the door, and the mattress parts oi' two sections, the upper of which, C, contains two sets of coiled springs, the one set, a, +5 arranged above the other, a, and the lower of When thrown apart, as shown in Fig. 1, the two sections torni a continuous bed of coiled springs without any ridge or cross-piece between them, and when closed, as shown in Fig. 2, as the upper portion of the upper section is well provided with springs, a comfortable sofa is constructed.
The drawer E is provided with slides e, by means ot' which it may be moved in or out, and when drawn out it forms a receptacle for the upper section, as shown in Fig. l.
Having thus described our invention, we claim and desire to secure by Letters Pat- 5o ent- In a sofa-bedstead, the combination of the upper mattress containing two sets of springs,
a a', the lower mattress, D, the drawer E, pro` vided with slides e, sliding in grooves on the inner side of the end pieces,A A, and extending through openings in the back piece, for supporting it when closed, as and for the purpose described.
In testimony whereof we affix our signa- 7o tures in presence of two witnesses.
