Patent Number: 6,296,309

Title: Chair construction

Abstract: A chair has a seat and reclinable back with a pair of armrests pivotably attached to the back. The back includes an outer shell and a mating inner shell. A bolt attaches each armrest to the outer shell and the inner shell is provided with sleeves for receiving the bolts and thereby securing the inner shell to the outer shell. By this arrangement, a single bolt provides for both the pivotable attachment of an armrest as well as for attaching the two mating shells together without any exposed hardware.
