COMBINED DESK AND SEAT
William J. Sponsler, Danville, Ill.
Application November 10, 1936, Serial No. 110,149
4 Claims. (Cl. 155-78)
This invention relates to furniture and more
particularly desks.
‘
The primary object of this invention resides
in the provision of a combined desk and seat
In adapted to be contracted when not in use.
Another object of this invention resides in
the provision of a seat adapted to be so secured
to a desk or other desired piece of furniture that
it can be disposed out of the way when not in
10 use.
A further object of this invention'resides in
the provision of a seat adapted to be swingably
secured to a desk or other piece of furniture
so as to be disposed in inoperative position on
one of the rails of the desk.
A still further object of this invention resides
in the provision of a particularly constructed
desk or other piece of furniture adapted to sup
port a swingable seat therefrom in such manner
that it will remain in rigid relation to the desk
when in operative position and locked relation
when in inoperative position.
Aside from the aforesaid objects, this invention
resides in the particular construction of certain
elements of the desk and seat, the salient features
thereof being to establish cooperation between
the elements both when the seat is in operative
and inoperative positions.
With these and other objects
vention resides in certain novel
struction and arrangement of
hereinafter more fully set forth
in view this in
features of con
elements to be
in the speci?ca
tion, illustrated in the accompanying drawings
and pointed out in the appended claims and,
While this disclosure depicts my present concep
tion of the invention, the right is reserved to re
sort to such changes in arrangement and con
struction as come within the scope of the claims.
In the accompanying drawings forming a part
40 of this application:
Fig. 1 is a side view of the desk showing a
seat as constructed in accordance with this in
vention secured thereto and in operative posi
tion.
45
,
Fig. 2 is a longitudinal vertical sectional view
through the desk showing the seat in full lines
in inoperative position and in dotted lines in op
erative position.
Fig. 3 is a front view of the desk with the
seat in inoperative position relative thereto.
Fig. 4 is a detail perspective view of the seat
and its supporting members.
Fig. 5 is a detail perspective View of the seat
supporting rail of the desk.
In the present illustration of this invention the
55
numeral 5 designates, in general, a desk which
is herein disclosed in the form of the box type
supported by legs 6, but which may be of any
other approved type permitting the chair of my
invention to be combined therewith.
Swingably secured to the desk 5, preferably
from its bottom, as by a hinge [4 or other suit
able element is a bracket or arm l2 having its
opposite end hingedly connected as at l3 to an
arm I l secured to and extending from a standard
In, said standard It] being preferably of greater
diameter at its opposite ends than at its medial
portion to provide a back I ‘l and a foot "5.
Rigidly secured on the arm ll preferably in
inclined relation thereto is a seat 9 which may
be of any desired con?guration and, in order to
maintain rigidity between the arm and standard
and also resist downward pressure from the seat
when occupied, a brace I5 is secured to the stand
ard and arm at their junction.
20
Aside from other rails usually utilized to sta
bilize the legs of a desk of this character, a rail
1, having its medial portion of greater thickness
than its ends and grooved or cut out as at 8 to
receive the foot E6 of the standard Ill when in
inoperative position, is secured to and extends
between the front legs of the desk and, while
this structure is utilized in the present instance,
the standard may be seated in a similarly dis
posed groove in other types of desks to retain it 30
in inoperative position.
Through the instrumentality of the elements
comprising this invention it will be noted the
seat is rigidly supported in its operative position
in front of the desk by the standard I0, arm II
and bracket I? connected to the desk and, upon
disposing the seat in inoperative position, the
standard II] is moved inwardly and lifted so as
to seat the foot IS in the groove 8 of the rail
1, whereupon the upper end of the standard will 40
be held against the face of the desk by the coun
tering weight of the seat, arm and bracket.
With this invention fully set forth it is mani
fest that a combined desk and seat of appreciable
utility is provided and, through the simplicity of
construction, the cost of manufacture will be
reasonable.
Having thus described my invention what I
claim and desire to protect by Letters Patent is:
1. In a desk of the character described the
combination of a desk top, legs supporting the
desk top, a rail connecting certain of the legs
and having a groove in its inner side, a standard
adapted to rest in the groove of the rail when in
inoperative position, and to extend in front of 55

the desk, when in operative position, with its
lower end resting on the floor, an arm secured to
point than at its ends connecting certain of the
legs and having a groove in the inner surface of
the standard and extending beneath the desk top,
the thicker portion thereof, a bracket hingedly
a seat secured to the arm, a brace secured to the
connected at one end to the desk top, an arm
standard and supporting the arm, a bracket ’ hingedly connected at one end to the free end
hingedly connected at one end to the arm and to

having a groove therein, a bracket hingedly con
nected to the desk top, an arm hingedly connect
ed to the free end of the bracket, a standard
rigidly secured to the arm, a seat secured to the
when the standard is in operative position ex
tended in front of the desk and a seat secured
arm adjacent the standard, a brace on said ‘stand
ard and bearing beneath the arm, said standard

seating in the groove of the rail when the seat is arm to the desk top and retaining it in elevated
folded in inoperative position.
3. In a desk of the character described the
combination of, a desk top, legs supporting the
