CONVERTIBLE FURNITURE Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Aug. 20, 1907.

Application filed July 9, 1906. Serial it. 325,274

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, BELA RAJNER, a subject of the King of Hungary, and a resident of Budapest, in the Kingdom of Hungary, have invented certain new and useful Improvements Relating to Convertible Furniture, of which the following is a specification.

The present invention relates to a chair or seat, such as a sofa or an arm-chair, which is convertible into a bed. Its object is to provide an article of furniture, cheap and simple in construction, which may be speedily converted into a bed.

A seat frame carries a seat and projects at its ends beyond the seat. Vertically disposed arms are detachably connected to the projecting ends of the seat frame, one or more of said side arms being adapted to be detached and connected to the end portions of said seat frame in a horizontal position to form a continuation thereof. A detachable back is connected to the seat between the arms and is adapted to overlie the projecting ends of the seat frame and the continuations, when detached.

The invention is illustrated in the accompanying A drawings, in which Figure 1 represents a sofa, constructed according to the present invention, Fig. 2 shows the same converted into a bed. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of an arm chair, and Fig: 4 a view similar to Fig. 2. Fig. 5 shows a detail of construction.

The seat frame (I is supported by legs or standards and carries a seat It. The ends of this frame project beyond the seat It and are provided with slots 0, c. Vertically disposed arms a and b are detachably connected to said projecting ends of the seat frame I; by means of wooden tenons l, fitted into the slots 0, 0, formed in the projecting ends of the frame d. In order to permit of converting the seat into a bed, slots 0, c are provided on the vertical ends of the frame d, and are adapted to receive the tenons I when the arms are brought into, the horizontal position. On the front and rear ends of the arms a and 0 legs 0, c are arranged. These legs support the arms a and b in the horizontal position. Hooks j, j are provided for securing the arms a and b to the frame, when inthe horizontal and vertical position. The difference of level, which exists between one of the two arms turned down in this manner and the seat is, is compensated by the back cushions f 40 and g, and if necessary by the reserve cushion h. To attain this end, it is necessary that, in the form shown in Fig. 1, the thickness of the back cushions should be exactly half of the thickness of the scat k, and their length should be the sum of the height of the arm a or b and the length of the projection of the frame cl.

The dimensions of the chair, illustrated in Figs. 3 and 4 should be as follows: the thickness of the reserve cushion h and the back cushionfshould correspond to the thickness of the seat It, and the length again the sum of the height of the arms (1 or b and the length of the projection of the seat frame.

As new and useful is claimed and desired to be se cured by Letters Patent of the United States:-
