The words chaise lounge translate to long chair in French. The French were the first ones to start making them as commercial furnishing for the home in the 18th century. Only the rich could afford these plush pieces of furniture but as time went on they became more affordable and not only kings could have them but so could regular people.
The chair stays true to neo-classical sensibilities, while sporting a rounded backrest which extends into two sloping armrests, thus taking on a wide U shape. They closely resemble a traditional French lit bateau, or boat bed, though designed for common areas rather than the bedroom. Predominantly backless, there are some Recamiers with backs along the long edge of the seat. The term itself Recamier can be applied to other loose types of furniture design.
