The chaise lounge is an amalgam of the day bed and the lounge chair. The day bed is likely the heaviest influence in the creation of the Chaise lounge. The day bed design was originally utilized in Egypt, and has been a continual inspiration for designers across many cultures and time periods. The time period for the merger of the day bed and the chair to produce the chaise lounge is unclear, but this style of lounge began its rise in popularity in the Americas in the early twentieth century. The name "chaise longue" is French in origin and literally means long-chair. The similarity between the French word longue and the English word lounge, the term is commonly mispronounced by most Americans. The pronunciation of "longue" is much more similar to the English word "long" with a long G sound on the end.
Armless chaise lounges are designed to conform to the natural body shape, thus, eliminating the need for the arms. The head and neck are supported by the back of the furniture while the body is supported by the seat itself. Day bed chaise lounges are designed for an upright sitting instead of a reclining position. Its design may not be as body-friendly as the other types but it has its purpose, namely, as a bench-cum-lounger.
