Maybe one with wheels to follow the sun and a pull out tray for drinks and your novel is what you have been dreaming of. Or perhaps one with armrests is more your style. There are so many styles of teak chaise lounges available you are bound to find on that suits your fancy. Try one that is a mix of teak, steel and durable batyline fabric for a look right out of South Beach. Or outfit your deck or poolside with loungers that are the picture of modern Asian allure.
One of the oldest variety of chaise lounge, the Duchesse dates back to around 1785-95. This version has a pronounced chair-like backrest curving out into two armrests. Unlike the Meridienne, the Duchesse looks more like an armchair (albeit a distorted one) than a daybed. Why it's called the Duchesse is somewhat a mystery, as there is no history to support whether it refers to a specific duchess.
The Recamier is sometimes mistaken for a chaise lounge because of its similar appearance, but they do in fact look different. This seat was named for its appearance in the 1800 painting of me. Recamier by Jacques-Louis David and came thereafter to be associated with the French socialite.
Far from the likes of the original prototypes, the outdoor chaise lounge strays from the strict definition of what the seat should actually look like. In translation, the chaise longue simply means a long chair in French, and so applies to any number of outdoor recliners. The lines begin to blur here, as some pieces of outdoor furniture, the chaise lounge, sun lounger and recliner especially, are difficult to actually tell apart. The key parts are just the backrest and ability to lie nearly supine with legs above the ground. Aside from that, there is a definite amount of crossover that must just be accepted.
