- JULIUS. LEVI Patented Jan. 2, 1934 PATENT OFFICE FURNITURE SLIP COVER Julius Levi, Chicago, Ill., assignor to Sam Pass,

Chicago, Ill.

Application June 29, 1932. Serial No. 619,867

Claims.

This invention relates to improvements in furniture slip covers.

One object of the invention is to provide. a slip cover which can be placed on an article 5 of furniture with convenience and conveniently removed and which is so constructed as to fit articles of different sizes and minimize the formation of wrinkles or disarrangement of the cover during use.

The invention relates to tuck in" type slip covers, that is, to covers the cushion panels of which are provided .with surplus material at the sides and rear which is tucked down between the cushion of the article of furniture, such as a chair or davenport, and the adjacent arms and backcushion. It has been found that many such covers do not remain neatly in place during use for the reason that when a person arises from the chair, for example, the tucked in material at the sides and rear of the cushion is raised sufliciently, as the cushion assumes its normal shape, to form wrinkles in the cushion panel of the cover. This elevation of the tucked in material is especially troublesome adjacent the forward corners of the cushion and it is an object of the present invention to remedy this defect without sacrificing the desirable tuck-in features whereby a one piece or unitary slip cover simulates one of the type having a separate cover for the seat cushion and has the necessary surplus material to enable the cover to befitted. to articles of furniture of different sizes.

Another object of theinvention relates'to the provision of elastic inserts in the rear panel of the cover, preferably opposite each of the fasteners by which the arm panels of the cover are attached to the rear panel, since this arrangement has been found to provide sufiicient tension on the arm panels to holdthe same snugly to the chair and without causingwrinkles in the arm or back panels.

In the drawing.

Figure 1 is a front perspective view of an overstuffed chair having a slip cover thereon embodying the present improvements.

Figure 2 is a rear perspective view of the same.

Figure 3 is a sectional view of a slip cover taken on the line 3-3 of Figure 1, the chair not being shown.

Figure 4 is a broken perspective view of a cover illustrating the construction at the rear end of the arm cover sections.

In the drawing, 10 represents the removable seat cushion of a conventional over-stuffed chair which has arms 11, 11, and back 12. In Figure back 12.

1 the slip cover is shown in position thereon and comprises a front panel 13, arm panels 14, 14 which are shaped to" cover the entire arms 11, seat panel 15, back panel 16 and rear panel 17 which is shown in Figure 2. The seat or cushion panel 15 is sewed to or integral with the front panel or drop 13 and is stitched at its sides to the arm panels 14. It is likewise attached to or integral with the back panel 16. p

The arm panels 14 may also be sewed to the back panel 16 upwardly a short distance from the corners of the construction, one of the corners being shown in Figure 4 and indicated as '19. Thus this seam may extend up to approxiplication filed November 25, 1931, Serial No.

577,137. If desired, the seam may be omitted entirely since the adjacent edges of the arm panels 14 and back panel 16 are designed to be tucked into the spaces between arms 11 and It is desirable, however, that the seams terminate considerably short of the flaps 20 whichform the ends of the outer portions of the arm panels or cover sections since these flaps are drawn over the adjacent edges 16aof the back panel 16 to hold those portions of the back panel in place.

The flaps 20 are designed to be drawn around to the rear of the chair -or article offurniture and there secured to the rear panel 17. Any suitable fastening means may be employed, such as buttons 21 secured to the rear panel and button holes 22 formed in the flaps 20.

It is preferred to provide the rear panel 17 with elastic inserts 23, the material of the panel being gathered or shirred at these points. One of the inserts is horizontally aligned with each pair of fastening means, as shown in Figure 2. These elastic inserts exert tension on the rear and side panels and tend to draw the material snugly on the article of furniture. The buttons can be attached at the factory at positions which insure the cover fitting a small size article while if in fact the purchaser uses it on a larger article, the gathered elastic portions 23 permit the rear panel to be stretched out sufliciently to accommodate the article without changing the position of the buttons, provided, of course, the article is within the size range of conventional furniture. If desired, the elasticmay be omitted and tie strings substituted for the buttons.

The seat or cushion panel 15 is narrower at the front than at the rear. In fact the width at the 1 front edge is such that no surplus material is provided to be tucked down at the front covers of the cushion 10. However, the panel 15 becomes wider toward the rear whereby adequate tucking in material is provided. This arrangement is illustrated in section in Figure 3. The appearance of this panel is substantially the same as in covers which tuck in along the entire side edges of the cushion but in the present arrangement the seat panel 15 extends directly across between panels 14 at the front edge of the chair and there is thus no tucked in material at these points to creep up and loosen the cover at the front of the cushion.

If desired, straps or strings 24 may be attached to the side tucked-in portions and secured beneath the cushion 10 to insure that even these portions do not become displaced during use.

The formation of the seat panel 15 in the form of a trapezoid, that is, with the shorter of the two parallelsides at the forward edge of the panel, and with the non-parallel sides diverging from front to rear, simplifies the construction of the cover at the front corners of the cushion and provides a smooth, neat fit over the front of the chair. To simulate the appearance of the front edge of the cushion 10, binding or the like 25 may be sewn to the front panel 13 if desired.

As illustrated in Figure 4, the panels 14 form pockets which fit over the arms of the chair while back panel 16 and rear panel 1'7 form an inclosure for the back of the chair. When these latter two panels have been drawn down over the the arms and back of the chair near the upper portions of the arms are too shallow to retain the material satisfactorily, the rear edges of the panels 14 are lapped over the adjacent edges of the panel 16 at these points and are held in position by the tension exerted thereon when the flaps 20 are attached to the panel 17.

While an embodiment of my improvements has been shown and described for the purpose of illustrating the invention as applied to chairs, I do not wish to be restricted specifically thereto except as so limited by the appended claims.

What I claim is:

'1. A slip cover of unitary construction for conventional over-stuffed articles of furniture comprising inclosures for the arms and back of anarticle of furniture and a seatcushion panel secured at its sides to said arm enclosures and at its rear edge to said back inclosure, said panel being substantially of the same width at the front as the seat of said article but of greater width at the rear whereby surplus material is provided to be tucked into spaces at the sides of said seat at points rearwardly of the front thereof.

2. A slip cover for an article of over-stuffed furniture comprising inclosures for the arms and back of said article and a seat panel connected to said inclosures, said panel being in the form of a trapezoid with the shorter of the two parallel edges thereof disposed at the front of the seat of said article and of substantially the same width as the front of said seat.

3. A slip cover for an article of over-stuffed furniture comprising inclosures for the arms and back of said article, a seat panel in the form of a trapezoid connected to said inclosures at its sides and rear edge, said arm inclosures being unsecured to said back inclosure throughout the major portions of their adjacent edges whereby the edges of said arm inclosures can be drawn over the adjacent edges of said back inclosure to hold the latter in position adjacent the rear ends of the arms of said articles, said arm inclosures having flaps at their rear ends adapted to be drawn around to the rear of the article for'attachment to the rear of said back inclosure, attaching means for said flaps, and elastic inserts in the rear of said back inclosure in horizontal alignment with said attaching means.

4. A slip cover for an article of over-stuffed furniture comprising arm inclosures, a back inclosure, a seat panel securedto said arm and back inclosures, said panel being in the form of a trapezoid with the shorter of the two parallel edges thereof disposed at the front of the seat of said article and of substantially the same width as the front of said seat, said arm inclosures having rear flaps adapted to be drawn around to the rear of said back inclosure, means for fastening said flaps to the rear of said back inclosure, and elastic inserts in said back inclosure arranged in horizontal alignment with said fastening means.

5. A slip cover for an article of over-stuffed furniture comprising inclosures for the arms and back of said article and a seat panel connected to said inclosures, said panel being in the form of a trapezoid with the shorter of the two parallel edges thereof disposed at the front of the seat cushion of said article and of substantially the same width as the front of said seat, the rear of said panel providing surplus material to be tucked into spaces at the sides of said' seat cushion and having members, attached to said surplus material, to be secured beneath said seat panel to prevent displacement of the tuckedin portions.
