Abstract

See full text

A chaise lounge recliner/rocker chair is provided which incorporates an arm/leg rest member and an intermediate leg support member for providing support to an occupant of the chair. The arm/leg rest member is connected to a portion of the chair frame side panels and a portion of the leg rest member while the intermediate leg support member is independently connected to a portion of the seat member and a portion of the leg rest member. When the leg rest member is in a retracted position, the arm/leg rest member and intermediate leg support member overlie portions of the upright chair. As the leg rest member is moved to an extended position, the arm/leg rest member has its degree of arcuate curvature progressively reduced and finally extends in an essentially planar configuration between the side panels and the leg rest member. As the seat back of the chair is reclined, it causes the seat member to slide towards the extended leg rest member which causes the intermediate leg support member to assume a pronounced convex shape.
