The chair stays true to neo-classical sensibilities, while sporting a rounded backrest which extends into two sloping armrests, thus taking on a wide U shape. They closely resemble a traditional French lit bateau, or boat bed, though designed for common areas rather than the bedroom. Predominantly backless, there are some Recamiers with backs along the long edge of the seat. The term itself Recamier can be applied to other loose types of furniture design.
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.
