Expect to pay much more for these. Patio Furniture Chaise Lounge frames are easy to find and the cushions are even easier and more plentiful. Your lounge will be the most popular seat on the patio and you might even have to fight for it.
So what exactly is a chaise lounge? The phrase comes from the French for 'long chair' which pretty much sums up what it is. The French popularized this form of furniture centuries ago and the concept crossed the ocean to the United States with immigrants. In today's homes, they're popular indoors as daybeds or comfy reading chairs, or outside on the patio, or by the pool as sunbathing beds, or just places to stretch out and unwind.
They are durable, relatively inexpensive, and are often molded to resemble more expensive and traditional materials like wood and concrete. Though more fragile, wicker is a popular choice but is not meant to be left completely outdoors and unprotected from the elements. Keeping your wicker chaise lounge beneath a covered porch or deck will keep it away from rain and too much direct sunlight. For inside the frame, cushion supports like the strap and the sling are often employed. These are strong and usually made from a waterproof nylon or plastic. As far as innovations, the zero gravity chair is built for maximum comfort and so its user can more fully relax without putting any extra pressure onto any part of the body, especially the seat.
Another is scale. A lounge chair shouldn't overwhelm the space you're putting it in. That was part of the problem with the old style loungers. They were massive, especially when grandpa reclined it all the way back. It could suck the visual life out of a room. Lounge chairs today are much more subdued in scale yet still full featured and far more attractive.
