Referring more specifically to the drawings,
the numeral l0 indicates a suitable chair which
55 has secured to the interior front portion of its
springs l8 are secured.
Heretofore, in settees, it has been customary to
secure a plurality of webbing members to the
strips 28 and 21 in order to support the upholstery
thereabove. but no pairs of means have been
provided whereby the resilient member could be
inserted in these webbing members intermediate
their ends to cause them to-normally assume a
horizontal position when pressure was not ap~
plied. Consequently, the webbing member which
has heretofore been placed between strip 26 and
21 had a tendency to sag or turn edgewise and
create an unsightly appearance since the vup- '
_ 2,138,747
holstering thereabove would likewise fail to re
turn to its proper position after use.
The webbing members l3 in Figure 4 are
shown supporting a plurality of coiled springs
Figures 6 and 7 show this same supporting
means applied to a different type of chair. Chair
55, to which it is applied, has a front strip 55
secured to the interior of its framework for sup

resting thereon. This pad 29 has its ends secured
to strips 30 and 3| which strips are secured to the
interior of the framework of the sofa.
