INVENTOR' WILLIAM A. WATT ATTORNEY Patented Mar." 23, '1954 PATENT eerie s".

( Cl? Q-47) 2 Claims. 1"

My' inventiom relatesto improvements 'bed couches wherein-the"seatandback of the-pouch are imoimtedyomseparate -mernb'ers of a: parrot QQmPmmddiinges 'to form-the bcdisprin'g 01" box matt ess-z In bed-couches-now-regularly-mada end arms are iprovidejd-which-are bclted to the ends of a bormember and-the-bases-of' tlie-hinges-are--secured to the arms amitheiarmsgare the members which support the wholetslilillcture. In this, type Of- .co st uetion, t conneeti nbet firebo member is by bolts disposed'along a straight line, which makes a mechanically unsound job insofar as the arms become somewhat loose. The hinges being mounted inside each of the arms renders them to some extent exposed and some of the components of each of the hinges rub against the upholstery of the inside surfaces of the arms and cause scuifing damage to the fabric.

In chairs and couches, it is common and desirable that the back shall be wider than the seat, or shall extend beyond the inner faces of the arms, and also that the front edge of the seat shall likewise extend beyond the inside faces of the arms.

The above desirable features have in the past been unobtainable in a bed couch and it is amongst the objects of the present invention to provide a bed couch which has 'both these features.

All of the above objections to the conventional bed couch have been overcome in the present invention, and a bed couch as here described has its seat and arms formed as a solid unit hingedly mounted upon the box member which forms the entire support for the structure.

Referring to the drawings:

Figure 1 is a plan view of the invention disposed as a couch.

Figure 2 is an end elevational view of the framework of the invention shown part in section.

Figure 3 is an end elevation of the framework tilted to change it from one position to another.

Figure 4 is an end elevational view of the framework disposed as a bed.

Figure 5 is an enlarged detail view showing the mounting of the hinge to the several frame parts used as. .:m1 h-v Seeur d'weaeh end wall 12:02 thenbasea t e ase member. 4.; of ,..e9m und hinge. .5. .suchesis usually. e ploy d inwbed ceuehesx e -.th s.seneral typ The. end. walls. 2. eeeeh. fumedwith as e e. .6,- extendin down,- werdlyfromthe front tea peint nter e ate the length. .ofthe hinge ,base ,4, see Figures 2. and, .4. aehlh nseh s. af rward. strut Stand a rearward strutfl andpivotally onnected .to theuppe end of the strut 8 are triangular brackets 10 and] l, and. he trut .,9. is eonneeted. een an leef th triangular bracket ll as shown in detail in Figure 5.

The numeral l4 indicates generally two arms, each of which consists of vertical supports l5 and I6 which are connected with bottom rails I1 and arm support rails l8. A bearer I9 is secured to each of the bottom rails which is adapted to lie upon the slope 6 to give an incline to the couch seat and the brackets II) are secured to a rear part of said bearers. An inclined support 20 extends between the bearer I9 and the arm support It and a tacking rail 2| extends between said support 20 and the vertical support l5. The front and rear supports I5 and I6 are connected together by runners 22 and 23 which with the bottom rails l1 complete a frame upon which to support springs and padding, not shown, to form seat and couch parts 24 as indicated in dotted line in Figures 2, 3 and 4 and in solid line as in Figure 1. The seat and arms being rigidly inarticulatedly connected together move as a unit as shown in Figure 3. A back frame member 26, adapted for padding and upholstering to form a cushion 21 as shown in dotted line, is supported by the triangular bracket l l of each of the hinges 5 and also by the struts 9 thereof.

It will be noticed that the arms l4 are relatively broad conforming to the regular practice, but that the arm support rails are cut away to define a relatively narrow strip 30 which extends beyond the end of the seat back and also to define a corner space 3| in the width of the arm whereby the end of the back may extend beyond the inner face of the arm [4.

It will also be noticed that since the seat 24 is a single unit consisting of arms l4 and seat runners 22 and 23, that the seat spring or other structure can be extended forwardly of and overlapping the forward ends of the arm as shown in Figures 1, 3 and 4, since there is not relative movement between the seat and the arms.

When the parts have been manipulated to dispose the seat 24 and the back 21 in horizontal position, the front end of the seat or the bearers IQ of the arms rest directly on the base I and the rear part of said seat is suspended on the triangular bracket ID from the upper end of the strut 8 in horizontal position instead of lying upon the slope 6 as shown in Figure 2. By providing the cut away space 3| in the framing of the rear arm, it is possible to dispose each complete hinge within the width of the arm and since th entire swinging movement of the hinge parts is at all times to the rear of the inclined support 20 and substantially within said space 3|, no part of said hinge can cause wear or scuffing of upholstered material when changing the device from bed to couch or vice versa.

What I claim as my invention is:

1. A bed couch adapted for covering with upholstery, said couch comprising a base, a seat frame having non-articulated arms secured thereto as an integral unit, a back frame member, a pair of compound hinges, said seat frame being connected to one part of each of said hinges, said back frame connected to a second part of said hinges, each of said hinges including articulated struts connected to and between the base and said hinge parts and lying between planes conholstery, said couch comprising a base, a seat frame having non-articulated arms secured thereto as an integral unit, a back frame member, a pair of compound hinges secured to the base, said seat frame being connected to one part of each of said hinges, said back frame connected to a second part of said hinges, each of said hinges being mounted and adapted for movement entirely between th planes of the inside and outside faces of the arms whereby no part of the hinges may be seen between the inner upholstery covering of either arm and the normal upholstery carried by the seat frame adjacent thereto.
