(ci. 5-13'0 ‘ frame at 22 and are preferably constructed of >an angle bar cut away as atV 23 to provide a stop so'that the legs when opened up will be set at an angle as shown in Figure 5. Brace members 24 extend between the legs I3 and the pivoted bar l 2|, so that when theA legs I3 are closed against the‘bed the bar 2| turns on its pivots and urges the bolt 25, which is hinged to it at 2S, upwardly and through a guide opening 2l in the bed'frame, and under the stopv 28 to hold the bed in its closed This invention relates to a bed which folds into ak portable wardrobe cabinet. » ` One of. theobjects of thisy invention is` to pro» vide arcabinet constructedof light weight metal ci having a. wardrobe on one side of the cabinet and a-.folding bed'concealed on the other side, the Whole being mounted on casters and easily moved to anyfdesired positionwhen the bed is closed. Another object is to »provide a folding bed of 10 simple yet rugged construction and which is so easy to open and close that even a child can doit. position. Another object is to provide a bed which when lowered from the cabinet, is provided with four legs adjacent the corners o'f the bed to independ ently support it, so that all tendency to tip the cabinet forwardly is eliminated when the bed is The head legs Il are secured to each other by the cross braces 29, and are positioned away from opened or occupied.

Figure Sis a perspective View of the back of the cabinet showing the bed folded into it. Figure 4 is a fragmentary detail in perspective When the bed is raised the rollers 35 bear on the guides 36 and run down them, and the slots 33 move along the studs 34 to 'carry the head of of the foot end of the bed. the bed to rest on the base of the cabinet. When ’ , Y Figure 5 is a perspective view showing the bed in its lowered position. ` Figure 6 is a fragmentary detail in perspective of one of the head legs and operating connections between the bed and the cabinet. Referring to the drawing, IB indicates a 'cabi-` net having a partitioning wall || (Fig. 6) be tween the front and the back. The front is pref erably formed as a wardrobe i2, provided with closing doors.V The rear of the cabinet houses a folding bed, generally designated as I3. The whole cabinet is mounted on casters I4 so that it may be »moved about and when the bed is not in use it> may be moved against the wall so that only the front portion of the cabinet is exposed. The bed comprises a frame I5 supported at its foot end by the legs I6, and at its head end by the legs I'I. Extendingfrom the frame at the foot end are the hooks I 8 onto which may be engaged mattress loops to keep the mattress in kplace when the >bed is raised. The vfootboard I9 is pivoted at 2|! toV the frame so that it gives the bed is completely folded in, the movement of 30 the frame lifts the legs Il by means of theY stud 34 held in slot 33, and retracts them inwardly so that when the bed is closed the legs hang perpen dicularly against the bed. ' To open the , bed the forward -legs I6 are 35 grasped, and a movement away from the cabinet releases the bolt 25. Then Vby lowering the foot end the rollers 35 actas a pivot and travel up wardly in the guides 33. The stud 34 moves down wardly in the slots 33 carrying the legs Il out 40 wardly and downwardly on the links 30 and 3| which also spaces the legs away from the cabinet under the head of the bed. When the bed is com pletely lowered the head of the bed rests solely on the legs Il, and due to the curvature of the 45 guides 36, the rollers 35 no longer bear on them, so that all weight and tension is released from the cabinet and the tendency to tip it is entirely eliminated.

The foot legs|6 are also pivoted to the 2 2,105,236 fore, I do not wish to be restricted speciñcally thereto except as so limited by the appended claims. What I claim is: l. In an article of the class described, a com ing rollers extending into said curved guideways, folding foot legs pivoted to said frame, folding head legs pivotally retained in guideways secured to the sides of the frame, and links pivoted to the head legs and to the inside of the com partment adapted to wholly contain and support partment for extending the head legs forwardly a bed vertically foldable therei'nto, said bed be ing adapted to be unfolded and lowered there and downwardly away from the cabinet and un der the head of the bed in its extended position from to its operative horizontal position whereby to support it independently of the cabinet. 10 the compartment is freed from the weight and tension of said bed, curved channel guideways secured to the inner sides of said compartment 3. In a portable cabinet having a compartment adapted to wholly contain a folding bed in its closed position, the combination with said com adjacent the base thereof, a bed frame having rollers extending into said guideways and oper 15 able therein, folding foot legs pivoted to said frame, folding head legs engaged to said frame and adapted to limited longitudinal movement thereof, spaced links secured to said compart ment and said head legs and extending there 20 between and adapted to maintain said head legs Yin substantially vertical position and to extend them outwardly of said compartment and for longitudinal movement in relation to said frame, whereby said hea-d legs will support the head partment of curved channel guideways secured in sai-d compartment adjacent the base of said cabinet, a bed frame having rollers extending into said curved guideways and engaged therein dur ing longitudinal movement of said frame, fold ing foot legs pivoted to said frame, folding head 25 end of said bed independent of said compartment. 2.
