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.
There are a number of pool lounge chairs which are now available in the market which are simple yet decent designed mostly made of a few strips of metal and plastic sheets to hold the weight of a person. There are however more complex designs available as well with many adjusting levers to ensure the comfort of its users and are made of aluminum or other light weight alloys which also do not get heat up under the sun. Others might have inflatable tubes attached to them making them afloat on the pool water, some might have day built-in beds as well.
No matter what style of teak chaise lounge you choose you will love spending a summer day relaxing in the sun as if you were vacationing at a posh resort, but in reality you will be in your own backyard. It is easy to transform your yard into an outdoor oasis and your favorite vacation destination. Start with a pair of chaise lounges and don't forget the side table between them. Then add a dining area with a teak table and chair set. And don't forget an inviting teak bench in the garden or by the pond and a beckoning entrance with a vine covered arbor at the start of your garden path. Toss in lush greenery and bright blooms and a few cushions and you and your guests will never want to leave your little piece of heaven.
One of the oldest variety of chaise lounge, the Duchesse dates back to around 1785-95. This version has a pronounced chair-like backrest curving out into two armrests. Unlike the Meridienne, the Duchesse looks more like an armchair (albeit a distorted one) than a daybed. Why it's called the Duchesse is somewhat a mystery, as there is no history to support whether it refers to a specific duchess.
