Description

Unirse STATES PATENT, QFFICE.
HARRIET A. EMERY, OF WIASHING'ION, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.
IMPROVEMENT IN SOFA-BEDSTEADS.'
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 146,518, dated January 20, 1874; applicaticn filed December 15, 1873.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HARRIET A. EMERY, of Vashington, District ot' Columbia, have invented an Improved Sofa-Bedst-ead, of which the following is a specification:
- The object of my invention is to produce a convenient article of furniture, which shall combine a sofa, eXtension-bedstead, and crib, provided with a receptacle for the beds and bed-clothes in the back port-ion of the sofa, so
'that it may be readily converted from a sofa to a bedstead or crib, as desired.
My invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in Which- Figure 1 represents a longitudinal section of the sofa converted into an eXtension-bedstead. Fig. 2 is a section of the sofa when the bedstead is inclosed. Fig. 3 represents a side piece of the bedstead.
A represents a sofa, which may be made in any ornamental forni. b represents the arm. c c is an extension-frame, which may be drawn out to any desired length, and supports a series of slats, (Z d., which are connected together by means ot' two or more elastic strips, e e, extending lengthwise of the bedstead, in such `a Way that when the bedstead is drawn out the slats will be disposed at a regular and suitable distance apart, in order to properly support the mattresses; and when the bedstead is closed, the slats will be drawn together in a compact form, making the seat of the sofa. At the rear of the back of the sofa is a receptacle, 7L, for the mattresses, (which t are made in sections,) and placed there when not in use. Access is had to this space by a door or slide, f. Above the receptacle h is another, g, Which may be: provided with a hinged cover,, forming a portion ot' the front of the sofa-back. This space or receptacle is designed to contain the pillows and bedelothing when not in use. k represents a side piece, (which can be made in sets of different lengths,) and is designed for the sides of the bed, to hold the eXtension-bedstead in place, and also the inattresses. They are formed of tenoned or doweled ends, to fit into mortises at each end of the frame. A space is left at the front portion, underneath the extension-frame, for the stowage of these side pieces when not in use. f represents a piece or iiap, which is hinged to the frame in front, and forms a foot-board to the bedstead. Vhen the bedstead is closed it hangs down, as shown in Fig. 2, and conceals the extension-frame. It may be made in any ornamental shape, as required.
Vhen the bedstead is closed, the iiap f may be fixed in an upright position, as shown in dotted lines in Fig. 2, and the sofa be used as a crib for a small child.
It Will thus be seen that the sofa can be easily converted into a bedstead or crib, and the bedding being near at hand, it can be speedily made up. The facilities for storing the bedding, when not in use, renders my invention peculiarly desirable in cases Where one rooni only is at the control of theoccupant. i
What I claim as my invention is 1. In a sofa-bedstead, substantially as described, the back a, provided With receptacles g and h, for stowing the mattress and bedclothing, as and for the purposes specied.
2. In combination with the head and foot boards of a sofa-bedstead, as described, the side pieces k, for the purpose of holding the bedstead in position when extended, as set forth.
3. In combination with the sofa A, f00t board a', and side pieces 7c, the slats d, ar-
ranged upon the elastic bauds c, as and for the purposes speciied.
4. The eXtension-bedstead, constructed as described, consisting of .the slides c c, footboard af, slats (l d, and elastic bands e e, in
combination with the sofa A, as set forth, so
as to admit of the bedstead'being folded into the sofa to forni the sea-t of the saine, as specified.
HA. EMERY.
