    Abstract: A combination tablet and armrest assembly for a seating unit. The seating unit includes a seat portion and a back, and the combination tablet and armrest assembly includes a support member which is movable between an operative position toward the front of the seat portion, and an inoperative position toward the rear of the seat portion. The support member is preferably mounted for pivoting movement to a base member secured to the underside of the seat portion. A combination tablet/armrest member is mounted to the support member. The tablet/armrest member includes a stationary section mounted to the support member, and a pivotable section interconnected with the stationary section via a hinge. The sections of the tablet/armrest member are adapted to be folded together when the support member is in its inoperative rearward position, to function as an armrest.
