The result resembles a sort of daybed, one with a headrest at one end and can have a backrest or be backless. In translation, the French word actually just means a "long chair" and so in the language the chaise lounge can refer to any number of indoor and outdoor reclining seats and deckchairs. In practice, the chaise lounge can seat two to three people sitting upright, or one person can lie comfortably with her feet suspended above the ground. As per design, these chairs can be simply adorned or famously done up with tufted cushions, ornate carvings and svelte fabrics. Antique version tend to be fancier affairs than contemporary chaise lounges, especially as today's models include sun loungers and other stripped down outdoor furniture.
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.
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.
The cushions of an outdoor chaise lounge must also be waterproof because a certain amount of moisture from rain, snow and dew is to be expected. The inside, a polyfill blend, is also more waterproof than indoor cushions. The indoor chaise lounge is recognized as the proper definition insofar as appearance. The basic design for a chaise is an upholstered couch-looking piece of furniture which is really like an extended chair with at least a headrest and the ability for one to recline and elevate one's feet. Various styles come with double headrests, attached armrests and some also come with matching, separate footrests.
