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.
This French inspired romantic piece of fine furniture adds a feeling of warmth to a sitting room and can be dressed up with just a few small scatter cushions. One thing that seems to surprise a lot of people is that today's chaise lounge has such a wide range from which to choose from. The first image that comes to mind for most people is something that's all white and tinged with gold edging, whilst this style is still available and would fit in comfortably with a formal living room; the modern and contemporary designs with their clean looking sleek designs are proving to be very popular. They come with a complete line of fabrics to choose from that will add a modern feel to a very classic design. The chaise lounge should actually come with a warning; whilst most people will buy one for their good looks and classy appearance they will tend to make you spend a lot more time lounging than actually doing boring housework.
