Description

June 17, 1952 w. A. GROSS I 2,600,759
COMBINATION FOOT LOUNGE Filed Sept. 1, 1950 INVENTOR. WILLIAM A. GROSS ATTORNEY Patented June 17, 1952 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE This invention relates to utility furniture for the modern house with small rooms, a combination foot-lounge.
The object of the invention is to produce a piece of furniture well adapted to several uses and to fold into small compass when not in service.
Equipment designed for plural functional use is traditionally poor for any use and it is a further object to produce a piece of furniture that is of excellent character for each of the purposes to which it can be adapted.
Incidentally but not unimportantly, another object will be seen to have been attained-furniture that is of good appearance and low cost and that will not scratch and mar in the foot above floor level, which strongly tends to end the usefulness of furniture, as far as appearance is concerned.
A drawing accompanies and forms a part of this disclosure.
In the drawing:
Fig. 1 is a perspective showing the device of the invention associated with a club type chair (in broken lines) with the two-part cushion top extended as a foot lounge;
Fig. 2 illustrates the same structure as shown in Fig. 1, with the cushions latched together and with the furniture piece compressed into nearly its smallest compass, the smallest that leaves it usable as a furniture piece.
Fig. 3 is, again, the same structure shown in Figs. 1 and 2, showing the best way of folding the two parts of the top together without being handicapped by the shelf, placed high enough to serve a useful purpose other than stabilizing the A frame end pieces; and
Fig. 4 is an end elevation of the new structure quite similar to the full line delineation in Fig. l.
Describing the structure in reater detail: A pair of (preferably) matched A frame end pieces I, are spaced apart by a shelf 2, in stabilized vertical parallelism forming a suitable support for a two part top, indicated by the parts 3 and 4, which are hingedly connected by the hinge 5. These two parts 3 and 4 are here shown as upholstered cushions, though they may be of other forms without departing from the novelty of the invention. However, symmetry will dictate, as will the necessity of a storage space for the leg 6, that they have an appreciable depth and preferably that the appearance, when folded, shall resemble that of Fig. 2.
A schematically indicated latch 1 is useful when the device is stored or when it is used as a bench of varying height with parts 3 or 4 uppermost.
The leg 6 may be of square section as shown. or round if desired and is preferably capable of telescoping so that it may support 4 at different levels when swung into floor contact, as shown in Figs. 1 and 4. The A frames i may be made of plated white metal or one of the beautiful, hard, modern plastic synthetics.
The swinging part B will be pivoted at 8, as shown in Fig. 4, and the telescoping part 6' will be capable of vertical changes in height as shown schematically by the holes 9 and the pullpin ill. The leg 6 should be extensible to a sufficient extent that both parts of the device can have a common top horizontal plane instead of 1 the slanting plane shown in Fig. 4 where the arrangement is for a foot lounge' A snap latch II will schematically show the necessity of fastening the parts neatly and firmly together, as in Fig. 2, when the device is reduced to its smallest useful compass.
Having fully described my new combination so that furniture manufacturers can readily make it to be placed in service at moderate costs, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:
1. A posture foot-lounge or the like comprising in combination, a pair of spaced end member supports, a shelf-like distance piece therebetween attached to both end members in median height position, a pivotally mounted double surface two part top member swingable between the tops of said end members to bring either surface upwards, the said parts being hingedly connected at one lateral boundary and latchable together at the opposite boundary with one of the parts including a folded-in-leg adapted to selectively form a third support.
2. A piece of house furnishings equipment, comprising a pair of spaced apart A frame support members, a distance piece made rigid with each of said A frame support members in median height position, a top member swingably mounted between said A frame support members to selectively produce upper surfaces of substantially different heights, said top member made in two parts hingedly connected together and extensible to result in a top of double width, and a third support member hingedly connected within the interior of one of said parts, being selectively foldable within said part or swung down to floor contacting position.
