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 chaise continues to be a very popular piece of furniture in today's American culture. This is especially true when it comes to furnishing outdoor and enclosed spaces. It is the ultimate in relaxation, but provides support to do quiet activities outside, like read, snack, knit, or conversation. Chaise longues are also available in many different styles and lengths. Some will reflect the chaises most popular era (the Rococo Period), and some are very sleek and modern in appearance. Some chaises are created with modern ergonomic design to provide maximum comfort.
As you can imagine, the major consideration in finding the right lounge chair for outdoor spaces is durability and comfort. That means finding one that is not only comfortable to sit in, but which won't become too hot after a day in the sun. If you've ever sat in a metal lawn chair or one of those cheap plastic molded ones, you know how unpleasant that can be.
There are pool lounge chairs which have mattresses or foam quilting making the lounge experience enjoyable. The orthodox wooden chair still has no parallel when it comes to elegance. The well polished wooden chair with leather cover foam mattresses is still "IN" and its class statement is evident from its excessive use at five stars hotels, upscale spas and expensive beach houses. Though these classic looking lounge chairs have one great disadvantage as well; they are not generally resistant to water, therefore they are required to be used with extreme care and caution and might require regular maintenance and polish so that the wood work is not tarnished with the passage of time.
