Knockdown Sofa Bed Patents (Class 5/12.2)
  • Patent number: 8893322
    Abstract: A sofa configured to be converted into various positions, including a sofa, lounge, bed and chaise position. The sofa includes a seat deck and a backrest. Further, the sofa includes a first type of click-clack mechanisms placed between the seat deck and backrest which are used to convert the sofa to the lounge or bed position. Also, the sofa includes a second type of click-clack mechanisms placed throughout the seat deck and backrest. These are used to convert the sofa to one of two possible chaise positions. In particular, these click-clack mechanisms enable the sides of the seat deck and backrest to be raised to various levels (e.g., 20 degrees, 40 degrees). As a result, opposing sides of the seat deck and backrest can be raised at the appropriate level thereby providing two individual chaises facing one another.

    Abstract: This invention relates to a transformable furniture unit, and in particular to a changing table with shelving that transforms into two sitting benches, and into a bed. The infant's changing table with shelving comprises four posts that support two tiers of shelving, with the capacity to support additional tiers in another aspect of the invention. The tiers of shelving are supported by wooden beams that connect perpendicularly to the four posts. The changing table with shelving transforms into two sitting benches when one tier of shelving is detached from the other. The furniture can be transformed into a bed when the sitting bench with the high back support is used as a headboard, the second sitting bench with no back support is used as the foot of the bed, and a supplementary support panel is attached in between, holding together the headboard and the foot of the bed.

  • Patent number: 6463602
    Abstract: Sofa bed comprising innovating mechanisms for position adjustment and quick assembly. It comprises padding elements supported by two hinged frames and is characterised by a mechanism which allows the wheels of the front legs to touch the floor in both position said “bed” and “sofa. Moreover, said sofa bed comprises a mechanism which locks the rotation of the seat frame respect to the back frame and to obtain a lever which makes easier to convert the bed into a sofa. Finally, according to a subsequent aim, the assembly of a spacing bar to the right and left sides is less difficult; this spacing bar is needed to provide a sufficiently rigid base for the bed.
