These Z members are shown ascomprising a square tube made of aluminum. They could be made. of many other shapes in cross section and be made of many types of -material, yet encompass the spirit-.ofthis invention which is to provide a chair'having two different sitting positions.

The 2 form of the chair frame in combination With the manner of securing the Z-shaped aluminum legs to said frame allows a comfortable spring motion to be imparted to the sitter inthe chair. 1

Referring to Figure 5, it will be seen that the louteruends offlthe upper-legs pijcting above and theouter end of the lower legs projecting be- I low the seat supporting frame, backs secured to various parts may be cut from one piece of board or plywood or sheet of metal, 60.
