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.
The classic indoor chaise lounge screams French decadence with its flowing lines and hardly a straight line or ninety degree angle in sight. French furniture makers are well renowned for their artistic flair and of being able to bring a touch of romance to their furniture and this is nowhere more obvious than in the classic chaise lounge. So if you're looking for a classy but somehow romantic piece of furniture whether for the bedroom, sitting room, or even your study the chaise lounge is your only choice, its like buying two pieces of furniture in one. Firstly there's the comfort, the long chair allows you to stretch out, lie down or sit virtually in any position, so it's great for reading a book or for taking an afternoon nap. Secondly it's extremely good looks make it very difficult for an ordinary chair or sofa to match its plush, smooth lines.
