My invention relates generally to furniture,
the line 9-9 of Fig. 1.
and more particularly to a combination desk
and chair for the convenience of a person en
gaged in reading, writing or drafting.
The principal objects of my invention, are to
provide a combination desk and chair that in
cludes a pair of substantially parallel vupright
cabinets that provide in effect, the sides and
arms of the chair, and said cabinets being pro
10 vided with shelves and compartments for the

justable connection between the seat-black and
the side braces therefor.
Fig. 12 is `a detail section showing a drawing
board adjustably mounted on the board or table
that normally carries the typewriter.
Referring by numerals to the accompanying ì
.accommodation of books, stationery, letter files

and the like, further to arrange between said
cabinets, an adjustable seat for the occupant of tangular upright cabinets that function as the
the combined desk and chair, further to combine A sides of the chair, said cabinets being preferably
formed of sheet metal and each cabinet is sup- 15
15 with the upright cabinets, a swinging table adapt
ed to support a typewriter, a drawing board or ported by a plurality of casters I2 that enables
the completed structure to be readily moved from
the like, and further to combine with the cabi
nets various accessories for the convenience of
the user of the combined desk and chair; for
2O instance, a swinging dictionary holder, an ad
justable foot and leg rest, an adjustable copy
vholder and an adjustable reading lamp.
Further objects of my invention are, to pro
vide a combined desk and chair of the character
refered to that is very compact, so as to occupy
comparatively little floor space, the cabinets form
ing the sides of the chair being mounted on
casters to facilitate movement from one posi
tion to another and to construct the parts yof
in the cabinets may be divided by shelves andv 20
partitions into compartments adapted to receive
books, letter files and accessories generally uti
lized by Writers, draftsmen and readers.
In Fig. 6 the lefthand cabinet is shown in ele
vation, and this cabinet is provided with three 25
horizontally disposed shelves I3 and one vertical
ly disposed partition I4.
.The space to one side of the partition I4 is
occupied by a plurality of drawers I5, preferably

With the foregoing and other objects in view
35 my invention consists in certain novel features
of construction and-arrangements of parts‘that
will be hereinafter more fully described and
claimed and illustrated in the accompanying

Where the drawers are utilized for containing
writing paper, sheets of carbon and the like, the
front walls of the drawers are provided with 35
apertures I6 that are extended a short distance
rearwardly in the bottoms of the drawers as illus
trated in Fig. 10.
Such construction enables the individual draw
ers to be pulled out and the ends of the sheets
of paper within the Withdrawn drawer to be
pushed upward to facilitate removal.

ferent elevations between the front portions of
the cabinets. (See Figs. 3 and 4.)
