The chair stays true to neo-classical sensibilities, while sporting a rounded backrest which extends into two sloping armrests, thus taking on a wide U shape. They closely resemble a traditional French lit bateau, or boat bed, though designed for common areas rather than the bedroom. Predominantly backless, there are some Recamiers with backs along the long edge of the seat. The term itself Recamier can be applied to other loose types of furniture design.
The cushions of an outdoor chaise lounge must also be waterproof because a certain amount of moisture from rain, snow and dew is to be expected. The inside, a polyfill blend, is also more waterproof than indoor cushions. The indoor chaise lounge is recognized as the proper definition insofar as appearance. The basic design for a chaise is an upholstered couch-looking piece of furniture which is really like an extended chair with at least a headrest and the ability for one to recline and elevate one's feet. Various styles come with double headrests, attached armrests and some also come with matching, separate footrests.
As one of those anomalies of folk etymology, the term "chaise lounge" is actually an error of American invention. The proper term for the chair is "chaise longue," but Americans have been mispronouncing the word since 1850 so it has become engrained into the culture. Today, both versions are accepted, though the former is by far the more popular. In its simplest description, a chaise lounge is a couch-like seat, (usually) upholstered, but in the shape of an extended chair and with four legs.
Going Extra Wide. Wide hammocks are designed for the comfort of larger adults or to allow two or more people to relax together. Most extra wide hammocks are fitted with a spreader bar to help keep the net, rope or fabric spread at the two ends. The spreader bars keep the hammock from "cocooning," or wrapping itself around the occupant, and make it easier to get in and out of the suspended swing.
