Materials Used, during its early years of development, the lounge was made from natural materials like wood and rattan, which were often carved with stylized designs. With the modern times also came the modern materials like plastic and metal although wood is still the most popular material mainly because of its beauty, durability and versatility. Nowadays, the most popular wood materials for use in pieces of chaise lounger furniture are cedar and teak. These woods are known for their weatherproof properties as well as their excellent grain patterns.
The result resembles a sort of daybed, one with a headrest at one end and can have a backrest or be backless. In translation, the French word actually just means a "long chair" and so in the language the chaise lounge can refer to any number of indoor and outdoor reclining seats and deckchairs. In practice, the chaise lounge can seat two to three people sitting upright, or one person can lie comfortably with her feet suspended above the ground. As per design, these chairs can be simply adorned or famously done up with tufted cushions, ornate carvings and svelte fabrics. Antique version tend to be fancier affairs than contemporary chaise lounges, especially as today's models include sun loungers and other stripped down outdoor furniture.
In the light weight category are plastic lounges that can be used for patio use. They have frames that require the use of a cushion that is tied onto the frame. Plastic framed lounges are easy to lift and fold but might be a little bulkier than the aluminum variety. If you put them on your patio be sure to take care when a heavy wind blows up. The wind will take any plastic or aluminum chaise lounges and toss them off the patio easily.
The biggest consideration in finding the right chair for the inside of your home is the scale of the chair and its features. Features, you say? Many lounge chairs offer you the option of reclining, gliding, swiveling or rocking. The type of motion, or no motion at all, can help you narrow your choices.
