A specific and well-known take on the basic form is the Duchesse Brisee. Meaning "broken," brisee refers to how the chair is divided into the aforementioned chair design with the addition of a long footstool. At the same time, a brisee can also be two smaller chaise lounge chairs separated in the middle by a shared footrest.
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.
As one of those anomalies of folk etymology, the term "chaise lounge" is actually an error of American invention. The proper term for the chair is "chaise longue," but Americans have been mispronouncing the word since 1850 so it has become engrained into the culture. Today, both versions are accepted, though the former is by far the more popular. In its simplest description, a chaise lounge is a couch-like seat, (usually) upholstered, but in the shape of an extended chair and with four legs.
