This is true with lounge chairs for the outdoors as well. New designs and materials have made it easy to find the right lounge chair for the deck, pool area or patio. The biggest problem is really defining what a lounge chair is, since the description is used for anything from a lovely cushioned chair that looks a lot like it belongs indoors to massive chaise lounges that are ideal for relaxing and tanning poolside. Again, there's no right or wrong answer in finding the right lounge chair for the great outdoors. It's a matter of personal taste and style.
Originally, the frames for the very first chaise lounge chairs used in drawing rooms was made from wood. Variations on the indoor chairs also brought about a mobile chaise lounge made from metal used by the French army. This seat was portable and could be folded and unfolded. Today, most indoor chaise lounge frames are still made from wood, some of which is ornately carved. While there also exist chaise loungers with metal frames, they are not nearly as portable or foldable as were their predecessors. For indoor use, it is assumed that the chair will not be moved around very often, so weight and ease of movement are not of chief priority.
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.
Chaise loungers have adapted well with changing times and styles and nowadays an array of modern chaise lounge are available crafted from tubular steel and leather and futuristic in design. So if you want a home with a difference that's the perfect sanctuary to relax, look into getting a chaise lounge. They are truly versatile pieces of furniture that potentially could be used in any room in your home.
