chair assembly comprises two pairs of legs connected
together at their upper ends .on each side of the table and
to the table top, the connection being such as to permit
pivotal movement between the two pairs of legs and be
tween the table top and the legs, and at least one chair
seat pivotally connected to one of the pairs of legs so
that it can be supported in the horizontal position and can
be moved from the horizontal position to lie substan
tially ?at along or between the said one pair of legs.
The connection between the pairs of legs and the table
top is conveniently provided with locking means so that
the pairs of legs can be locked in the closed or in the
open position and at the same time the table top is locked
in relation to the legs.
The chair seat is conveniently pivoted to or between a
pair of legs at its front edge and is supported in its hori
zontal or open position by a strut which is pivoted also
to or between the pair of legs at its lower end and is
the horizontal portion 19 to limit the pivoting movement
of the seat, the length of the slot being made such as to
permit the seat to move from a position where it is folded
?at with the legs 1 (FIG. 3) to a position where it is
open in the seat position as shown in FIGURE 1.
When the chair desk assembly is to be folded the seat
8 is lifted at its rear end so as to allow the portions 22
of the member 9 to enter into the horizontal section of
the respective slots 20. The seat is then allowed to pivot
down to a position lying ?at with the legs 1. This allows
the member 9 also to be folded forwardly to lie within the
legs. The wing nuts 14 are slackened and the two pairs
of legs closed together and the table top folded to lie
in line with the legs as shown in FIGURE 3.
If it is desired for a seat to be provided on each side
of the table then the legs 1 and 2 are made of equal
length so that the legs 2 project beyond ‘the edge of the
table in a manner similar to the legs 1 so allowing a
