Description:

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to lounges, in particular to a lounge having a seat frame, a back frame, a left frame and a right frame. The lounge has at least one liftable leg and at least one table plate and thus the lounge has the functions of liftability and placing objects. The lounge provides the table plate so that the user can work conveniently without needing a further table.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The prior art lounge has a seat frame, a back frame, a left frame and a right frame. The user can lie and seat upon the seat frame, but the function of the lounge is limited, for example, the lounge has no table plate so that if the user desires to work, the user must take another table aside. This is inconvenient. Thus there is a necessity for a novel design which can add extra functions to the lounge.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Accordingly, the object of the present invention is to provide a lounge with the function of liftability and the provision of at least one table plate for placing objects, such as a notebook computer, etc. The lounge provides the table plate so that the user can work conveniently with needing a further table. These functions cannot be achieved by the prior art.

To achieve above object, the present invention provides a lounge comprising a seat frame, a back frame, a left frame and a right frame; the seat frame and the back frame being installed between the left frame and the right frame; a top of the left frame having a left handle and a top of the right frame having a right handle; at least one of the left frame and right frame having a liftable inner tube and an openable table plate for being positioned horizontally for adjusting a height of the lounge and for supporting objects upon the table plate.

The various objects and advantages of the present invention will be more readily understood from the following detailed description when read in conjunction with the appended drawing.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of the present invention.

FIG. 2 is a schematic perspective view showing the use of the table plate of the present invention.

FIG. 3 is a schematic view showing the adjustment of the inner tube on the leg of the present invention.

FIG. 4 is a schematic cross sectional view showing the functions of the lock and the inner tube installed to the leg of the present invention.

FIG. 5 is a schematic cross sectional view which shows that the pin is used as a lock.

FIG. 6 is a schematic cross sectional view showing that the table plate is arranged horizontally.

FIG. 7 is a schematic view showing the lateral side of an induced supporter of the present invention.

FIG. 8 is a perspective view showing the supporter is operated to cause the table plate to be placed downwards.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

In order that those skilled in the art can further understand the present invention, a description will be provided in the following in details. However, these descriptions and the appended drawings are only used to cause those skilled in the art to understand the objects, features, and characteristics of the present invention, but not to be used to confine the scope and spirit of the present invention defined in the appended claims.

Referring to FIG. 1, the lounge of the present invention includes a seat frame 1, a back frame 2, a left frame 3 and a right frame 4. The seat frame 1 and the back frame 2 are installed between the left frame 3 and the right frame 4. A first enhance frame 11 is installed between the right frame 4 and the left frame 3 and below the seat frame 1. A second enhance frame 11′ is installed at the backside of the back frame 2 for increasing the structure for supporting loads.

A user can seat or lie upon the seat frame 1. A top of the left frame 3 has a left handle 31 and a top of the right frame 4 has a right handle 41. The seat frame 1 is formed by a plurality of first long sheets 12. Each first long sheet 12 is formed by a plurality of iron wires which have small sizes and are arranged by intersections of longitudinal and transversal iron wires as a web. The back frame 2 is formed by a plurality of second long sheets 22. Each second long sheet 22 is formed by a plurality of iron wires which have small sizes and are arranged by intersections of longitudinal and transversal iron wires as a web. The feature of the present invention is that each of the left frame 3 and right frame 4 has a liftable inner tube 5 and an openable table plate 6 for being positioned horizontally.

Referring to FIGS. 2 and 3, the left frame 3 has two legs 32. Each leg 32 is installed with an inner tube 5. The inner tube 5 has a plurality of insertion holes 51 spaced arranged. Each leg 32 is installed with a lock 71 which is locked to the insertion hole 51 of the inner tube 5. Referring to FIGS. 3 to 5, the lock 7 is locked to the leg 32 by using a locking seat 70. A pin 71 is installed within the locking seat 70. One end of the pin 71 is inserted into the insertion hole 51 and another end of the pin 71 is installed with a pullable head 74. A washer 73 in the locking seat 70 enclosing a spring 72 of the pin 71 within the locking seat 70. In operation, when the head 74 is pulled outwards, the pin 71 will separate from the insertion hole 51 so that the inner tube 5 is liftable upwards. Then the pin 71 is locked to another insertion hole 51 of the inner tube 5 so as to adjust the height. Furthermore, in the present invention, the lock 7 can be replaced another pin 9 as illustrated in FIG. 5. An outside of the pin 9 is installed with a pullable ring 90. This is convenient for operation.

Referring to FIGS. 6 to 8, two sides of the table plate 6 are installed to the two legs 32 so that the table plate 6 can be lifted at one side or descendent at the side. When the table plate 6 is lifted to be at a horizontal state, it is supported by a shaft 80 of a supporter 8 so that as illustrated in FIG. 6, the table plate 6 is steadily arranged. Referring to FIG. 7, when the supporter 6 is closed, the table plate 6 will move downwards as illustrated in FIG. 8 and FIG. 1.

However in the present invention, the table plate 6 and inner tube 5 can be installed both at the left frame 3 and right frame 4. Furthermore, the table plates 6 at two sides may have different forms.

However the present invention provides a lounge with the function of liftability and the provision of at least one table plate for placing objects, such as a notebook computer, etc. The lounge provides the table plate so that the user can work conveniently with needing a further table. These functions can not be achieved by the prior art.

The present invention is thus described, it will be obvious that the same may be varied in many ways. Such variations are not to be regarded as a departure from the spirit and scope of the present invention, and all such modifications as would be obvious to one skilled in the art are intended to be included within the scope of the following claims.
