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.
Originally, the frames for the very first chaise lounge chairs used in drawing rooms was made from wood. Variations on the indoor chairs also brought about a mobile chaise lounge made from metal used by the French army. This seat was portable and could be folded and unfolded. Today, most indoor chaise lounge frames are still made from wood, some of which is ornately carved. While there also exist chaise loungers with metal frames, they are not nearly as portable or foldable as were their predecessors. For indoor use, it is assumed that the chair will not be moved around very often, so weight and ease of movement are not of chief priority.
If you are looking for something that will last for a long time and look sleek and stylish on your patio you may want to consider a wood frame chaise lounge. These are actual pieces of furniture that are heavy and not portable at all so they will stay on the patio. Some do have wheels so that you can move them with some ease. Wooden Lounges come in several different types of wood and can be stained to resemble any type of wood. They can also be painted.
Functional Uses, the beauty of chaise lounge furniture is that it is adaptable to just about any indoor and outdoor space. As a result, it can be moved from the bedroom, dining room and living room to the porch, pool and even the outdoor deck. Of course, most wooden chaise lounges have removable cushions.
