Payne's patent "consists in forming the lier or inclined portion of the lounge in two sections, one of which is rigidly secured to an upper hinged frame, which is swung over to change the lounge to a bedstead, and the other is so hinged to the head-board of the lounge that it can be swung over the end, thereof out of the way, and will thereby afford the bedstead all the length that is taken up by the lier of the lounge in the lounge-bedsteads now in use."
