Borgfeldt's patent "relates to a lounge the parts of which are adapted to be folded together convenient for storage or transportation, as well as to a novel construction..." It combines "a frame, constructed of wires or other supports and feet, with a flexible web, which is stretched over and incloses the supports in such a manner as to form a comfortable rest for the body of a person, to permit of folding the parts together..."
