If you like to lounge alone, a classic single person teak chaise lounge is ideal, however if you don't want to fight for the right to recline, buy your loved one a lounger of his or her own. Sit side-by-side and read the paper, or consider a twin teak lounger for two. The intimacy of a twin lounger offers you double the comfort and makes for a wonderful spot to curl up together and check out the stars. Ease of movement is another consideration when purchasing a teak lounger. Want to chase the sun, or move into the shade? A teak lounger with wheels will give you the versatility and convenience of movement that will allow you to shift your lounger to the best position possible at any time.
As you can imagine, the major consideration in finding the right lounge chair for outdoor spaces is durability and comfort. That means finding one that is not only comfortable to sit in, but which won't become too hot after a day in the sun. If you've ever sat in a metal lawn chair or one of those cheap plastic molded ones, you know how unpleasant that can be.
Another is scale. A lounge chair shouldn't overwhelm the space you're putting it in. That was part of the problem with the old style loungers. They were massive, especially when grandpa reclined it all the way back. It could suck the visual life out of a room. Lounge chairs today are much more subdued in scale yet still full featured and far more attractive.
Brief History, the chaise lounge, as it is also called, originated from 16th-century France. It become popular in Europe and was later imported to the United States during the 1930s where it was primarily used an outdoor patio seat or an indoor recliner. Then and now, the lounge furniture was designed to be versatile, beautiful and functional on both sides of the ocean. Emphasis must be placed on the fact that the American spelling for the furniture differs from its French counterpart. In French, it is "chaise longue" (long chair) but Americans altered it to "chaise lounge" because the user was expected to lounge in it.
