In terms of functionality a chaise end actually makes a lot of sense. For instance, if you like to lie down on your sofa then having arms at both ends can make it somewhat uncomfortable and prevent you from really stretching out. Equally, if you only have a small living area, being able to access your sofa from the side as well as the front certainly has its benefits. If you do choose to go for chaise end sofas then you certainly won't be alone. Even though most people are familiar with the term, this particular style of sofa is fast becoming the most popular and leaving more traditional designs behind.
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.
