HARRY G. TALBOTT, OF BALTIMORE, MARYLAND.
WALL FURNITURE.
Application filed September 9,1925. Serial No. 55,214.
My invention relates to wall furniture and particularly wall furniture in which a table, suitable for use as a dining table with seats on opposite sides is adapted to be 5 folded, with the seats, into a wall casing and be concealed from view. My invention has for its object to provide a device for such urpose which will be simple in construction, relatively inexpensive, neat in ap- 10 pearance, convenient in operation and will permit of use of a table of unusual length. In order to save floor space, particularly in apartment houses there have been devised various forms of so-called wall furniture. that is tables chairs, beds and other articles of furniture which when not in use can be folded up against the wall of a room or into a recess therein so as to leave the floor space free from incuinbra-nces. Furniture of this type is particularly desirable in modern apartment houses particularly in the kitchen or dining room as the dining table is needed only for two or three meals and then only for a relatively short time. By means of my invention the problem of a dining table and seats for the diners, for
apartments or any rooms where space must be economized is satisfactorily solved.
With the objects above explained and 30 other objects hereinafter explained in view my invention consists in the construction and combination of elements hereinafter described and claimed.
Referring to the drawings Figure 1 is a perspective view of a construction embodying my invention showing the table and benches in open position.
Figure 2 is a front view of the same showing the table and benches closed up.
Figure 3 is a vertical sectional view on an enlarged scale on line 33 of Figure 2.
Figure 4 is a similar view on line k4 of Figure 2.
Figure 5 a horizontal sectional view on line 55 of Figure 2. I
The frame or casing which carries the operating elements and which is built in or secured to the wall of the room in which the device is to be located, comprises end uprights 1 and 2 and intermediate uprights 3, 4, and 5,6, top board 7, top front board 8 and front vertical boards 9, 10 and 11 and 12. and bottom front board 13. At a height I suitable for the table the intermediate front vertical boards 11 and 12 are connected by horizontal board 14 carrying the table supporting strip 15. The front vertical boards 9 and 11 are connected, at a height suitable for a bench by horizontal board 16 on which rests a board 17 preferably extending back to vthe wall 1 and at, the same height the front vertical boards 10 and 12 are connected by horizontal board 18 on which rests a board 19 similar to board 17.
The spaces bounded by the outer uprights 1 and the intermediate upright 3. the horizontal board 17 and the top board 7. and the corresponding space bounded by the outer upright 2 and the intermediate upright 8. the horizontal board 19 and the top board 7. are adapted to be closed by doors 20 and 21 respectively hinged respectively to the front vertical boards 9 and 10 so as to swing outward as shown in Figure 1. In
these spaces are arranged benches 22 and 23, these benches being hinged or pivoted as indicatcd at 24: in Figure 4-, to the horizontal boards 17 and 19 respectively. These benches are of such length that when swung upward into the respective spaces in which they are received they will just clear the lower edge of top front board 8. To these benches. near their free ends are hinged respoctively legs or supports 25, 26.
In the side of the intermediate upright 4 which face the intermediate upright 5 near its inner edge is formed a vertical groove 27 extending from the lower end of the upright to a point slightly above the level of the horizontal board 15, this groove being adapted to receive a pivot pin 28, and in the side of intermediate upright 5 is formed a. similar groove 30 to receive pivot pin 31, these grooves terminate at the upper ends slightly above the level of the upper edge of horizontal board 15. The pivot pins 28 and 31 are carried by the table 32 and to each pivot pin is connected a counterbalance weight- 35 by a chain 33 which passes over a pulley near its upper end. The table 32 when turned to vertical position will thus slide freely being coimterbalanced by the weights 35, the construction being similar to that commonly used for widow sash.
To the table 32 near its free end are hinged legs or supports 36, 87.
The intermediate uprights 4 and 5 are each provided on their sides with a groove 40 adapted to receive the side edge of a panel 41, the upper end of each side edge of the panel being connected to a counterbalance weight '42 by a cord or chain 43 which passes over a pulley in the upright near its upper end.
The space between the uprights 3 and 4, and 5 and 6, is provided for the counterbalance weights 35 and 42.
To the lower edge of the top board 8, between the intermediate uprights 4 and 5 is hinged a closure board 45.
When it is not desired to use the table, the legs 36, 37 are swung inward against the under face of the table and the table is swung upward on the pivot pins 28 and 31. As the table nears its vertical position it is pressed downward causing the pivot pins to move downward in the grooves 27 and 31, and, the closure board 45 being swung upward to permit the front edge of thetable to pass, the table is swung into vertical position and pushed downward preferably until its inner end is on the floor. The panel 41 may then be drawn up until its upper edge is just above the lower edge of the closure board 45, this closure board being allowed to swing down into closed position after the table has been swung to closed position. The panel 41 with the closure board serves to completely conceal the table from view.
The benches 22 and 23 may then be swung upward and into the spaces provided for them and the doors 20 and 21 may then be closed.
iVhen it is desired to use the table the panel 41 is pushed down until its u per edge is on a level with the upper face-o horizontal board 15. The table may then be drawn upward until its upper, or front, end is just below the level of the lower edge of front board 8. Closure board 45 being then swung upward, the upper, or front, end of the table may be swung outward as indicated by the arrow in Figure 3, and may then be further raised until the pivot pins 28 and 31 are slightly above the level of the upper face of horizontal board 15, and at the same time ma be swung downward until, the legs 36, 37 eing swung downward on their hinges, the front end of the table rests on these legs and its inner or rear end rests on the horizontal board 15. p
in order to permit the table to be thus swung down to horizontal position the up" per edge of the panel 41 when pushed down most not be above the upper Face of the horizontal board 15 and as it is desirable to have the table longer than its height, the panel cannot be of a vertical extent suflicient to permit of its closing the space necessary for a table of the desired length. By providing the closure board 45 at the upper end of the space and hinging it that it may be swung upward, the space necessary for the table is provided and at the same time, when the table is not in use, the space between the horizontal board 15 and the lower edge of the top board 8 is completely concealed.
The grooves 27, 30 for the pins 28, 31, are spaced from the grooves 40 for the anel 41 as far as is permitted by the widt of the uprights 4 and 5 so as to permit as much forward swing of the table as possible when the panel is pushed down and the table is raised until its upper edges will just clear the lower edge of the top front board 8..
By the construction described a relatively long table may be used without increasing the height of the casing.
While in the device above shown and described the frame or casing is set against the wall, it may be set into a recess formed in the wall.
Having thus described my invention what I claim is In wall furniture, a frame comprising a pair of end uprights and a pair of intermediate uprights provided on their inner sides with ways, a top board extending across and connecting-the upper ends of the end and intermediate uprights, a strip connecting the intermediate uprights forward of the ways at a height suitable for supporting a table. a bar connecting each end upright to the adjacent intermediate upright at a height suitable for a bench so as to leave above it the space extending to the top board, a table having its inner edge provided with pivots extending into the ways on the inner sides of the intermediate uprights and adapted to be moved into the space between the intermediate uprights in rear of the table supporting bar and having a supporting leg at its free end, a bench in each of the spaces between the end uprights and the intermediate uprights hinged at. its inner end and of a length sufiicient to extend near ,the top board, provided with a supporting leg at its free end and having a length greater than the height of the table supporting bar, adapted to be swung into said space between an end upright and an intermediate uprigl'it. a door hinged to each end upright adapted to close the space between the end upright and the in lGl'lllEKllfllO upright extending from the ('lOsrS bar to the top board, a closure board hinged to the lower edge of the top board between the intermediate uprights adapted to close the board hinged to the top board, said slide the upper end of the space between the interhaving a length not greater than the height I" mediate uprights above the table supporting of the table supporting bar.
