    Description


    [0001] The present invention relates to a bedside table suitable to be attached to a mattress assembly, in particular to be releasably attached to a folding lateral extension of a mattress assembly.

    [0002] There are currently many types and models of bedside tables according to tastes, needs, decoration and space in a room or bedroom where the bedside table is intended to be placed. A bedside table, as a furniture intended to be placed next to a bed, is therefore a functional object that, in addition, complements the decoration of the bedroom where it is placed.

    [0003] Regardless of the size of the bedroom, there is now a tendency to use fewer bedside tables. This is mainly due to the fact that they take up a lot of space and they increasingly benefit less from the functionality they usually offer to store objects in drawers or other spaces provided therein. Their functionality is relegated almost exclusively to place objects thereon, such as a lamp, a glass, a telephone, etc.

    [0004] KR 1020100049136 discloses a known bedside table.

    [0005] The invention proposes a substitute for conventional bedside tables known hitherto. Specifically, a bedside table is provided to be applied to mattress assemblies having folding lateral extensions. The purpose of the proposed bedside table is to make it possible to maintain the functional aspect of including means for supporting and storing objects with a piece of furniture that takes up very little space.

    [0006] The mattress assembly in which the bedside table of the present invention preferably finds application is, for example, a mattress assembly with folding lateral extensions such as that described in the international patent application WO/2014/075928, to the same holder of the present invention. This mattress assembly is configured to expand its surface. For this purpose, the mattress assembly comprises a central body having two or more lateral extensions and a footboard extension. In some versions of the mattress assembly, it further comprises a headboard extension. The folding extensions of the mattress assembly are allowed to be folded an angle so that they can form an extension of the surface in a plane completely horizontal relative to the central body or arranged in a plane perpendicular to the central body respectively. Other angular positions of the folding lateral extensions are also possible.

    [0007] The bedside table of the present invention comprises a surface that is intended to be arranged in an area of the folding lateral extension of such mattress assembly. The surface of the bedside table may be however extended substantially covering the entire lateral extension of the mattress assembly, as required.

    [0008] In any case, the surface of the bedside table of the invention is intended for receiving or storing at least one object, such as a mobile telephone, a tablet, a laptop, a lighting device, such as a lamp, or other objects. The surface of the bedside table of the invention may be made of any suitable rigid material, such as plastic, metal, wood, or combinations of these materials. This surface may however be also made of a flexible material or even of a suitable textile or fabric. The surface may be transparent, translucent, opaque, coloured, it may be provided with ornamentation, including a combination of the above and/or include display means such as, for example, an information display screen such as a flexible type screen.

    [0009] The bedside table of the invention includes means for releasably attaching said surface to the folding lateral extension of the mattress assembly. These releasable attaching means are such as to enable the bedside surface to be releasably or removably attached to the mattress assembly even when the lateral extension is lowered or folded.

    [0010] According to the invention, the releasable attaching means are formed as a box shaped body with an interior adapted to receive a portion of the folding lateral extension of the mattress assembly. Fitting of the folding lateral extension of the mattress assembly may preferably be a press fitting. In embodiments not covered by the invention, the means for

    [0011] releasably attaching the bedside table may be formed by grippers adapted to attach to the lateral extension of the mattress assembly. In a further embodiment not covered by the invention, the means for releasably attaching the bedside table may comprise at least one magnetic area adapted to be attached to the lateral extension of the mattress assembly. A further embodiment not according to the invention of the means for releasably attaching the bedside table is a Velcro® area associated, for example, with the bedside table surface adapted to attach to the lateral extension of the mattress assembly.

    [0012] It is envisaged that, in some versions of the bedside table, it may include suitable means for connecting a mobile device, such as a mobile telephone, a tablet, a laptop computer or the like, to an appropriate power supply. In some embodiments, the bedside table may include means for connecting the mobile device that provide said mobile device with information about the mattress assembly. In other embodiments, the present bedside table may include home domotic control means, for example means for controlling the lights in a room.

    [0013] The bedside table includes an interior space suitable for storing one or more objects. This interior space of the bedside table may be formed of one or several receptacles, that is, the interior space may be provided with partitions for orderly storing various objects. The receptacles may be all equal, all different or only some of them equal.

    [0014] A cover may also be provided, for example a hinged cover or a sliding cover, to cover at least partially that interior space. The cover may in some cases define the surface of the bedside table.

    [0015] One or several of the receptacles may consist of one or more pockets. The pockets may be opened or they may include conventional closure means, such as zipper, button, Velcro®, snap fasteners, magnetic means and the like. In some embodiments, means may be provided for hinging the bedside table surface to the lateral extension of the mattress assembly. This would, for example, allow said surface to be concealed in the lateral extension of the mattress assembly. Specifically, the means for hinging the bedside table surface may comprise a suitable hinge so that the bedside table surface can be rotated to be arranged at different slopes or angular positions and/or also concealed in a lower part of the lateral extension of the mattress assembly, as stated above.

    [0016] In some cases, provision of a gyroscope or similar mechanism is also envisaged so as to maintain the stability of the bedside table surface at a required angle, irrespective of the degree of inclination of the lateral extension of the mattress assembly. This solution would make it possible to convert the lateral extension of the mattress assembly into a rigid surface suitable for eating in residences, changing of babies' diapers, or simply for leisure and/or work in homes and hospitals.

    [0017] Additional objects, advantages and features of examples of the present invention will become apparent to those skilled in the art upon examination of the description.

    BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS



    [0018] A particular embodiment of a bedside table according to the present invention will now be described by way of a non-limiting example with reference to the accompanying drawings.

    [0019] In the drawings:

    Figure 1 shows a perspective view of one particular example of a bedside

    table according to the invention;

    Figure 2 shows a side elevational view of the bedside table illustrated in figure 1; and

    Figure 3 shows a fragmentary perspective view of a folding lateral extension of a mattress assembly with a bedside table as shown in figures 1 and 2 attached thereto.


    DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF ONE EMBODIMENT



    [0020] In the non-limiting example that is illustrated in figures 1-3, the bedside table has been denoted as a whole by reference numeral 10. The bedside table 10 of the example shown in said figures is adapted to be releasably attached to a folding lateral extension 20 of a mattress assembly 30 as described in the international patent application WO/2014/075928.

    [0021] One example of such a mattress assembly 30 is shown in figure 3 of the drawings. It is a mattress assembly 30 that is configured to allow its surface to be adequately expanded and, at the same time, to provide the user with safety means to prevent her/him from falling to the ground. For this purpose, folding lateral extensions 20 are provided which can be folded at different slopes or angular positions with respect to the main mattress 31. For example, the folding lateral extensions 20 may be folded to form an angle of 0 or 180° relative to the main mattress 31 so as to provide the user with an extended surface. The folding lateral extensions 20 may also be folded so as to be arranged at an angle of substantially 90° relative to the main mattress 31 in order to provide the user with a safety barrier to prevent the user from falling to the ground. Other angular positions of the folding extensions are also possible as required.

    [0022] The lateral extensions 20 of the mattress assembly 30 may be made of a single piece or several lateral extensions may be provided which may be folded independently of each other so as to be each arranged in different predetermined positions relative to the main mattress 31 of the mattress assembly 30.

    [0023] In addition to the folding lateral extensions 20, the mattress assembly 30 to which the bedside table 10 is applied may include a folding footboard extension and, in some embodiments, it may further comprise a folding headboard extension (not shown).

    [0024] The mattress assembly 30 may further comprise a tubular structure provided in the contour of said folding extensions. Such tubular structure of the mattress assembly 30 may be fixed or factory fitted, or it can be assembled by the user through suitable quick lock and release means.

    [0025] The bedside table 10 of the non-limiting example shown in the figures comprises a surface 40 which may be, for example, about 20 x 40 cm or 20 x 60 cm. Other suitable sizes for the surface 40 are of course possible depending on the needs, functionality, the area of the lateral extension 20 of the mattress assembly 30 to be covered, etc.

    [0026] This surface 40 may be made of any suitable material, such as rigid plastic, metal, wood, or combinations thereof. In other examples, the surface 40 of the bedside table 10 may be made of a flexible material or even of an appropriate textile or fabric material.

    [0027] The surface 40 of the bedside table 10 is intended to be placed in an area 25 of the folding lateral extension 20 of the mattress assembly 30. This area 25 may be located, for example, near the area of the pillow, as illustrated in figure 3 of the drawings. In other examples, the area 25 where the bedside table 10 is arranged may be located further away from the area of the pillow. In yet further examples, surface 40 of the bedside table 10 may be extended covering substantially the entire folding lateral extension 20 of the mattress assembly 30 rather than partially as illustrated in figure 3 of the drawings.

    [0028] As it can be seen in figure 1 and in figure 2, the surface 40 of the bedside table 10 is part of a body inside of which a space 50 is defined. This interior space 50 of the bedside table 10 is suitable for storing objects, for example a mobile telephone 55, as illustrated in the example shown in figures 1-3. Although not shown in said figures, suitable means for connecting a mobile telephone 55 or other mobile devices, such as a tablet, a laptop computer or the like, to a power supply, and/or suitable means for connecting said mobile device 55 to provide information about the mattress assembly 30, for example about the main mattress 31, and/or suitable means for domotic control of a home or a part thereof, for example, means for controlling the lights in a room, may be provided in the inner space 50 of the body of the bedside table 10

    [0029] In order to cover or at least partially close the interior space 50 of the table 10, a cover 60 is provided. The cover 60 may be a folding cover, a sliding cover or any other suitable type of cover which allows easy access to the interior of the interior space 50 of the bedside table 10. The cover 60 may be made of an appropriate transparent material, although it may be made of a translucent or opaque material, to at least partially conceal the object or objects stored inside. The cover 60 may be provided with an ornamentation on its outer surface as desired, and even with light. Embodiments where the cover 60 is provided with display means such as, for example, an information display screen, such as a touch screen, a flexible type screen, a roll-up screen or the like, are not ruled out.

    [0030] In order to attach the surface 40 of the bedside table 10 in the area 25 of the folding lateral extension 20 of the mattress assembly 30, releasable attaching means 15 are provided. These releasable attaching means 15 are adapted to allow the surface 40 of the bedside table 10 to be releasably attached to the mattress assembly 30 even when the lateral extension 20 is already folded or as it is being folded by the user.

    [0031] Means 15 for releasably attaching the bedside table 10 that are shown in figures 1, 2 and 3 of the drawings, according to the invention, these comprise a box shaped body 15 which is associated with the surface 40 of the bedside table 10. According to the invention, the surface 40 is part of the box shaped body 15. Said box shaped body 15 is clearly shown in the perspective view of figure 1 and also in the elevational view of figure 2 of the drawings. The box shaped body 15 is formed, as it has been indicated, by the surface 40 of the bedside table 10, and also by a lower surface 41, that is substantially parallel to said surface 40 of the bedside table 10, and by respective adjacent surfaces 42, 43. Said adjacent surfaces 42, 43 are substantially perpendicular to each other and join the surface 40 of the bedside table 10 and the lower surface 41. Such configuration defines, as described, a box shaped body 15, which is opened through two adjacent openings 44, 45. These two adjacent openings 44, 45 are defined at, or correspond to, adjacent surfaces of the box shaped body 15 other than the adjacent surfaces 42, 43. These openings 44, 45 of the box shaped body are sized to allow the area 25 of the folding lateral extension 20 of the mattress assembly 30 to be properly received, until the bedside table 10 is releasably suitably attached to the mattress assembly 30. The bedside table 10 is thus secured to the mattress assembly, even when the lateral extension 20 that is being folded by the user in order to place it to the desired position is folded in a vertical upward position, forming a barrier to the user for preventing her/him from falling to the ground.

    [0032] It is apparent that if the user places the lateral extension 20 folded in a vertical downward position, then the adjacent openings 44, 45 would now be solid adjacent surfaces and the solid adjacent surfaces 42, 43 would be adjacent openings.

    [0033] The condition for the areas 42, 43, 44, 45 to be solid surfaces or openings may be interchangeable according to whether the lateral extension 20 is folded in a vertical upward or downward position. This configuration would allow the bedside table 10 to be positioned anywhere on the mattress assembly 10.

    [0034] It should be noted that, although in the example shown, the lower surface 41 of the box shaped body 15 is shown substantially the same as the surface 40 of the bedside table 10, the lower surface 41 may, in other possible embodiments, have a substantially triangular configuration. That is, the lower surface 41 of the box shaped body 15 may be defined by a triangle passing through vertices A, B, C defined by the wall 43 and the area of the opening 44, as shown in Figure 1.

    [0035] The configuration of the releasable attaching means by means of a box shaped body 15, as shown in Figures 1-3, enables the bedside table 10 to be assembled and disassembled by the user very quickly, easily and conveniently in the folding lateral extension 20 of the mattress assembly 30 through the openings 44, 45 in the body as described.

    [0036] Specifically, the bedside table 10 can be assembled by the user very simply and very quickly in the mattress assembly 30 by suitably pushing the box shaped body 15 towards the lateral extension 20 until it is properly inserted into said body 15. Once the lateral extension 20 is inserted inside the bedside table 10, it is held securely, for example, press fitted, so that, although the folding lateral extension 20 of the mattress assembly 30 is folded, it does not fall due to the adjacent lateral surfaces 42, 43 of the box shaped body.

    [0037] Although it is not necessary, additional or complementary attaching means may be provided to hold the bedside table 10 in the folding lateral extension 20, once it has been inserted into the other.

    [0038] The bedside table 10 can be also detached from the mattress assembly 30 by the user very quickly and very conveniently by easily pulling the box shaped body 15 outwardly of the lateral extension 20 to remove it from the interior thereof. This allows the user to store the bedside table 10 conveniently when not in use, or place it in another different mattress in the same or another room, or in another lateral extension 20 of the same mattress. etc. Given the very small space taken up by the bedside table 10 of the invention, the user may have several bedside tables 10 with different and varied ornamentations and/or functionalities, according to tastes and needs. The user thus has the possibility to change the decoration of the room. Even if desired different bedside tables may be provided in the same room, which can be exchanged when and as desired. The user can easily change the type of bedside table 10 to be placed at any time depending on the taste and/or functionality thanks to the great ease, comfort and speed in the exchange of the bedside tables 10 in the mattress assembly 30.

    [0039] Although only a number of particular embodiments and examples of the invention have been disclosed herein, it will be understood by those skilled in the art that other alternative embodiments and/or uses of the invention and obvious modifications and equivalents thereof are possible. The scope of the present disclosure should therefore not be limited to the particular example that has been disclosed, but should be determined only by the claims that follow.

    [0040] Thus, although the bedside table that been disclosed herein includes means for releasably attaching to a lateral extension of a mattress assembly, said releasable attaching means may be adapted to attach the bedside table to another part of the mattress assembly, such as a structure thereof.

    [0041] Also, the bedside table that has been disclosed herein may be provided with means for controlling some features of the mattress assembly, such as, for example, internal ventilation of the mattress by controlling small fans arranged to blow air into the mattress through small holes, adjusting lighting provided in the structure of the mattress or any other part thereof, etc.
