Abstract

See full text

A furniture member may include a base assembly, a frame assembly and a tilt mechanism. The base assembly includes rails having a track and a stop plug received in the track. The frame assembly includes a base frame, a seatback frame and a seat bottom frame. The seatback frame is rotatably coupled to the base frame. The seat bottom frame is coupled to the seatback frame such that rotation of the seatback frame causes movement of the seat bottom frame relative to the seatback frame and the base frame. The tilt mechanism is coupled to the seat bottom frame and engages the tracks such that rotation of the seatback frame relative to the base frame causes bearings of the tilt mechanism to slide along the tracks, thereby translating the base frame relative to the base assembly. The bearings contact stop plugs when the seatback is in a fully reclined position.
