A furniture frame has components which may be manipulated and/or reoriented so that it assumes various furniture configurations. The furniture frame most preferably includes a number of tubular sections which are joined to one another and separated by at least one cross-support member. A number (e.g., a pair) of detachable leg members having L-shaped sections may be inserted telescopically into the vertical or horizontal tubular components of the side frames and fixed in position, if desired, with the use of conventional pegs, screws, bolts, pins or like fixing elements. Depending upon the relative configuration of these components, therefore, furniture frames for various furniture pieces may be provided using a single frame structure.
