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.
They were traditionally made of wood but today are made in wrought iron, aluminum and plastic as well. These materials are especially popular for outdoor use as they can resist the elements. Wood is still a popular material especially teak, wicker and rattan. Teak is the most handsome of woods with its dark sheen while wicker has a nostalgic colonial appeal. Wooden loungers are perfect from both indoor and outdoor use.
