My invention relates to improvements in chairs
and other types of seating structures, and has for
its object the provision of a chair structure of
generally simpli?ed and improved form which can
5 be made cheaply and conveniently assembled, and
which, nevertheless, will be. of light-weight
and sturdy construction. ‘The present invention
is directed more particularly to the leg portions
of a chair and the connection thereto of a seat
10 board or cushion;
As shown on the accompanying drawing, Figure
1 is a side view of a chair; Fig. 2 is a face view
devices 8 and 9 are not subjected to severe bend
ing strains.
Back bars I 2 may also be formed of tubular
stock, and are welded at l3 to the seat bar por- -
tions 1. The upper ends of the back bars l2 are 5
?attened‘ somewhat and connected to a back
member l4 by screws. The ends of the bars l2
that are welded to the bar portions 1 have ex- :
tended contact therewith, thereby serving to brace
the bar portions 1 against transverse rocking 10
I claim as my invention:

rality of pieces connected in unitary relation, and
20 may be formed of material other than metal
An important feature of my invention involves
the bending inwardly of the seat bar portions 1,
as shown more clearly in‘Figs. 2 and 3. These in
25 wardly bent seat bar portions are secured by
screws or bolts 8 and 9 to a board or plate III that
is covered with a pad or upholstering H. Open
framework or other types of seats could, of course,
be substituted for the board ill.
30 By reason of the angularity or lateral spread of
the seat bars 1 and theirconnection to the seat _
board, it will be seen that the legs are thereby
strongly braced and held in rigid relationship to
the seat and to eachother, especially if the seat
35 bars are de?ected inwardly to nearly the center
of the seat board, as shown.
This construction
of. the seat member to points more closely adja
cent to the seat center than to the edges of the
seat, to form base-like extensions to support the
legs against tilting relative to said seat; and se-'
cured to the seat member.

leg members respectively disposed adjacent to
opposite edges of the seat and each member hav

opposite directions and having ?at contact

seat, and means for securing the said seat bar 30

leg members respectively disposed adjacent to

portions 1 constitutebase extensions or ?anges ' underside of the seat, and means for securing the

of the legs and serve to support the tubular or adjacent to the inner and outer portions of the
other narrow bar stock material against trans
seat bar portions.
