Brief History, the chaise lounge, as it is also called, originated from 16th-century France. It become popular in Europe and was later imported to the United States during the 1930s where it was primarily used an outdoor patio seat or an indoor recliner. Then and now, the lounge furniture was designed to be versatile, beautiful and functional on both sides of the ocean. Emphasis must be placed on the fact that the American spelling for the furniture differs from its French counterpart. In French, it is "chaise longue" (long chair) but Americans altered it to "chaise lounge" because the user was expected to lounge in it.
A chaise end sofa looks exactly like any other sofa apart from the fact it has an arm at one end but is exposed at the other. Now you'll probably be able to paint a mental picture of what I'm talking about, so I can move on to why they represent such a good investment. What is immediately striking about a chaise end sofa is its image. Once you enter a room it makes a bold statement about your personal style and taste. This isn't to say that they're garish and only for the ultra trendy, it simply means that they catch your attention. So if you're looking for a focal point for your living area, then a chaise end might well be a good choice.
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.
The aluminum chaise lounge will probably not last very long. The nylon strips tend to get frayed and break after awhile and the frame tends to bend. The plastic type tends to get brittle after a few years of sitting in the sun and they crack and break. There are also resin frames that you can get that will last a bit longer but they too tend to get brittle after several years in the sun. Resin frames require a separate cushion just like the plastic variety.
