PLATE XIX. The lounge chair represented in this plan will be appreciated by every smoker and reader, combining, as it does, practically every element of comfort and convenience he can reasonably desire and expect in one article of furniture. The chair is fitted with a comfortable sloping seat for the reception of a cushion, and a back which can be adjusted to any desirable angle. The right arm is made broad to carry a book or any article in use, and is fitted with an ash-bowl. On the left side of the chair is a projecting portion for holding newspapers, etc. The eight drawings given in these plans show in the clearest manner the formation and construction of all portions of the chair.

Fig. 1 is a side view of the complete chair, showing the front of the projecting newspaper-holder, and one of the fittings which allow the adjustment of the inclined back. Fig. 2 is a front view of the complete chair showing the end of the right arm, supported by a small bracket screwed to the front leg, and also the front end of the newspaper-holder, below the left arm. Fig. 3 is a vertical section through the seat, showing the slope of the same, and the hinging of the bottom rail of the back. Fig. 4 is a horizontal section of the left portion of the chair, immediately above the newspaper-holder. (To prevent confusion of lines the solid bottom of the holder is not indicated by graining.) The bottom of the holder is indicated by dotted lines in Fig. 2. Fig. 5 is a top view of the broad, right arm with its ash-bowl: its rear end forms portion of the fittings provided for the adjustment of the back. Fig. 6 is a corresponding view of the narrower, left arm, showing its portion of the fittings for the adjustment of the back. Fig, 7 is an enlarged drawing of the rear end of the left arm, showing the brass pin which passes through the holes bored in it - shown in Fig. 1 - and against which the back rests. Fig. 8 is a section through the ash-bowl inserted in the right arm. By means of the system of dotted lines in all the drawings, the details of the construction of the chair can be thoroughly understood.

We strongly recommend oak wood to be used, although the chair may be made of any hard wood. Any desirable finish can be adopted. As the seat is sufficiently deep, a cushion may be applied to the back if desired.
