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.
