GEORGE D. SMITH, OF SANDON, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA.
CHAIR.
Application filed October 31, 1913.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, GEORGE D. SMITH, a subject of the King of Great Britain, and a resident of the town of Sandon, in the Province of British Columbia, Canada, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Chairs of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to improvements in chairs, and the object of my invention is to devise a chair which can be converted practically instantaneously into a couch, and vice versa, and in which varying degrees of inclination of the back and leg rest can be obtained in a quick and simple manner. I attain this object by the construction illustrated in the accompanying drawings in \vhicl1 Figure 1 is a perspective view of my chair. Fig. 2 is a side elevation showing my chair converted into a couch. Fig. 3 is a front elevation showing the brackets for supporting the leg rest when in use as a couch.
Similar letters refer to similar parts throughout the several views.
A is the body of my chair, supported on the front legs A and the back legs A B is the back of my chair, and is hinged to the body A at B C is the leg rest, which is hinged to the body A at C D and E are the movable side arms of my chair which are fulcrumed on each side of the body A on the pins F, which pins are fixed in the sides of the body.
G is a rod which passes from D to E to connect same together and to support the hinged back 13.
H is a rod which passes from D to E to connect same together and to support the leg rest C.
I is a loose rod which is supported on the back legs A passing through the clips J, which are fastened in the upper edges of the legs A to hold the loose rod I thereon. There may be a number of these clips J fitted, so that the rod I may be moved from one pair into another pair to raise or lower the back B as required, when the chair is lowered to form a couch.
K are notches formed in the side frames of the back B for engagement with the rod G to hold the back in position when raised, and to allow for varying inclinations of the. back when in use as a chair.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Nov. 17, 1914.
Serial No. 798,462.
L are brackets attached to the front legs and adapted to swing under the movable side arms I) and E to support same when the chair is in use as a couch.
Referring to the drawings it will be seen that when the chair is in its normal position, as shown in Fig. 1, the rod G will rest in one of the notches K to support the back B to keep it from falling when any weight comes on it. The leg rest C will then be supported by the rod ll. If more or less inclination of the back or leg rest is required, the rod G is moved higher up, or lower down, in the notches, as the case may be, and as the back lowers, the leg rest rises, and vice versa.
To convert the chair into a couch, the rod G is slipped out of the notch K and the movable side arms D and E are swung down until they are resting on the rod I. This movement carries the leg rest C up to the level of the seat, and the brackets L are then swung in under the arms D and E to support them. It will now be seen that the couch thus formed is supported in a rigid manner at both ends. If it is not desired to use the couch perfectly flat, it may be inclined by swinging the brackets L out from under the arms D and E and then moving the loose rod I into another pair of clips J higher up on the back legs A It will be seen, therefore, that I have devised a serviceable form of chair which can be converted practically instantaneously into a couch, and reconverted back to a chair again as quickly, and in which varying inclinations of the back and leg rest can be obtained in a quick and simple manner.
What I claim as my invention is:
1. The combination with a chair having the usual front legs and seat portion, of rearwardly extending downwardly curved rear legs, a back rest portion hingedly connected to the seat portion and provided with a plurality of outwardly facing notches, a leg rest portion hingedly connected to the seat portion, side members pivotally secured to said seat and having angular portions adapted for use as arms, portions extending upwardly from said side members on each side of the back rest portion and carrying a crossbar adapted to be detachably engaged in a pair of the notches of the back rest por tion to support the said back rest portion, portions extending downwardly from said side members and carrying a crossbar adapted to support the said leg rest, as and for the purpose specified.
2. The combination with achair having the usual front legs and seat portion, of rearwardly extending downwardly curved rears legs, a back rest portion hingedly connected to the said seat and provided with a plurality of outwardly facing notches, a leg rest portion hingedly connected to said seat, side members pivotally secured tothe said seat and capable of being placed in a substantially horizontal position, angular portions in said side members adapted for use as arms, portions extending upwardly from said side members on each side of the back rest and carrying a crossbar for engagement in the notches of the said back rest whereby the said back rest may be adjustably supported as to varying inclinations by the upwardly extending portions of the said side members, portions extending downwardly from the side members on each side of the leg rest and carrying a. crossbar for supporting the said leg rest, a plurality of clip members secured on the rear legs and arranged oppositely to each other thereon in pairs, a rod member extending across said legs and slidably engaged in a pair of said clip members for supporting the said upwardly extending portions when the side members are in the substantiallyhorizontal position, and brackets on the front legs adapted to swing under and support the said downwardly extending portions when the said leg rest is in approximately the same plane as the seat and the back rest portion, as and for the purpose specified.
Dated at Sandon, B. C., this 30th day of Sept, 1913.
