The words chaise lounge translate to long chair in French. The French were the first ones to start making them as commercial furnishing for the home in the 18th century. Only the rich could afford these plush pieces of furniture but as time went on they became more affordable and not only kings could have them but so could regular people.
In America and England they were popular during the Victorian era and were usually placed in the bedroom. It was thought to be lazy to take a nap in bed during the day, but if you fell asleep reading or relaxing on the chaise you were not so lazy. There are still indoor chaises being made but most are used for the patio or near a pool.
The frame for an outdoor chaise lounge can be made from a wide range of furniture building materials. The only condition is that it must be somewhat weather-resistant. Wood that has been treated and varnished will usually last a long time with the right amount of upkeep, as will metal. For elegance and traditional design, a wrought iron frame is beautiful but also arguably heavy. An aluminum frame does not connote the same elegance, but is much lighter and looks more modern. Both are subject to rusting after enough time. Plastics like polywood and resin are relatively recent innovations and are perfect for use in patio furniture.
During the summer you can find aluminum and plastic chaise in just about any store and they might cost anywhere from USD $25 to $50. A nice stylish wooden lounge might cost you $200 or more but remember that they last for much longer. You can also get chaise lounges in steel or wrought iron and you can even find them in wicker.
