1. A furniture item, comprising:

  • a fixed first structure;

    a second structure;

    a drive assembly for moving the second structure in relation to the first structure between predefined target positions, said drive assembly having at least two servo drives; and

    an adjustment mechanism for maintaining the second structure in desired alignment with the first structure, said adjustment mechanism including a control unit for controlling operation of the servo drives, and first and second signal transducer assemblies operatively connected to the control unit, with the first signal transducer assembly interacting with one of the servo drives and with the second signal transducer assembly interacting with the other one of the servo drives such that a movement to any one of the target positions by the second structure in relation to the first structure is accompanied by a simultaneous activation of the first and second signal transducer assemblies, and a deviation from a target position causes the control unit to manipulate operation of one of the servo drives to adjust the movement of the second structure.
