  • Patent number: 6851138
    Abstract: A hammock system for allowing an individual to efficiently enter and exit the hammock in a safe manner. The hammock system includes a support frame, and a cradle frame having opposing ends pivotally attached to the support frame. The cradle frame has a middle section surrounded by two opposing side sections, wherein the side sections are at an angle with respect to the middle section forming a concave structure. A mattress is preferably positioned upon the cradle frame. A catch member may be attached to the support frame and removably connected to the cradle frame to retain the cradle frame in a sofa position.

  • Patent number: 5564987
    Abstract: A folding swing hammock that has a main rectangular support frame that is held in a generally vertical position by leg members when the hammock is in an unfolded condition. A rectangular seat frame is rotatably supported between two support arms which, in turn, are suspended by springs in the top element of the support frame. A cover is rotatably mounted in the top section of the support frame over the seat frame. The interrelated parts of the hammock are connected together so that they can all be folded into the plane described by the support frame.

  • Patent number: 5107556
    Abstract: Sitting or reclining furniture with an upper and a lower part that can move relative to each other. The upper part is suspended so as to be able to oscillate on the lower part and at least two sets of ropes are arranged functionally in series. One set of ropes is suspended by way of bridge pieces and an approximately gallows-like frame. The bridge pieces are, in turn, joined to each other through the frame.

  • Patent number: 4868939
    Abstract: A free floating bunk bed includes a bed framework supported on a base framework which in turn is supported on a bed support floor of a truck or tractor cab. The base framework includes first and second subframes. The bed framework is supported on the base framework by a suspension means which includes two pairs of rigid hanger brackets each pair is pivotally mounted to a one of the suspension subframes. Hanger straps extend between the end of each hanger bracket and a portion of the bed framework spaced below the end of the hanger bracket, and two universal joints connect each hanger strap between the end of its hanger bracket and the bed framework. A pair of opposed and balanced compression coil springs are operative between the base framework and each pair of hanger brackets to tend to keep the hanger bracket from pivoting with respect to the base framework.

  • Patent number: 4793009
    Abstract: On the fixed stand (1) of a piece of reclining furniture, a pendulum frame (2) is suspended in a freely oscillating manner via several tension members (52). Supporting elements (51) of the pendulum frame (2) project into the box-shaped bases (3) of the stand, which supporting elements (51) can be combined there with an amplitude limitation (54) on the one side and with a damping device (56, 57) on the other side.

  • Patent number: 4783863
    Abstract: A pendulum frame (2) is suspended on a fixed stand (1) by means of four pendulums (16). The amplitude of each of the pendulums (16, 17) is limited by a plate (24) provided with an orifice (23). The plates (24) carry locking projections (28), into which detent pawls (26), arranged on the pendulum frame (2) can engage. When only one of these detent pawls (26) is in the locking position, the bedding furniture can swing about this detent pawl which functions as a pivot pin. When two detent pawls (26) located behind one another in the longitudinal direction of the bedding furniture are locked, the pendulum frame (2) is blocked and is held outside its mid-position on one side. A free-swinging mid-position, four pendulum positions locked at one point and two fixing positions locked off-center are therefore available for each piece of bedding furniture.The bedding furniture can be adapted to meet individual sleeping requirements and is also characterized in that bed care becomes considerably easier.

  • Patent number: 4567614
    Abstract: A seating or sleep furniture piece having a frame in which an upper portion is pendularly suspended from a lower stationary portion supported on the floor. The upper portion supports the seating or sleep support surface for a user and allows for comfortable pendular and sleep-inducing or restful movements. The pendulum lengths may be adjusted to vary the pendulating effects, or the frame portions latched together to prevent relative movements when desired by a user.
