There are pool lounge chairs which have mattresses or foam quilting making the lounge experience enjoyable. The orthodox wooden chair still has no parallel when it comes to elegance. The well polished wooden chair with leather cover foam mattresses is still "IN" and its class statement is evident from its excessive use at five stars hotels, upscale spas and expensive beach houses. Though these classic looking lounge chairs have one great disadvantage as well; they are not generally resistant to water, therefore they are required to be used with extreme care and caution and might require regular maintenance and polish so that the wood work is not tarnished with the passage of time.
For indoor spaces you really want to have the chair complement your décor. It doesn't have to match exactly. These chairs can be contrasting in terms of style, material and color - done right, it can add excitement to the room and bring focus to a particular space.
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.
Another is scale. A lounge chair shouldn't overwhelm the space you're putting it in. That was part of the problem with the old style loungers. They were massive, especially when grandpa reclined it all the way back. It could suck the visual life out of a room. Lounge chairs today are much more subdued in scale yet still full featured and far more attractive.
