No matter what style of teak chaise lounge you choose you will love spending a summer day relaxing in the sun as if you were vacationing at a posh resort, but in reality you will be in your own backyard. It is easy to transform your yard into an outdoor oasis and your favorite vacation destination. Start with a pair of chaise lounges and don't forget the side table between them. Then add a dining area with a teak table and chair set. And don't forget an inviting teak bench in the garden or by the pond and a beckoning entrance with a vine covered arbor at the start of your garden path. Toss in lush greenery and bright blooms and a few cushions and you and your guests will never want to leave your little piece of heaven.
Next is the lovely Meridienne. This is one of the more interesting types of chaise lounge because of its eye-catching asymmetry. The top of the chair begins with a higher than normal headrest, followed by a gradually sloping backrest down the side, and the result is something which looks like a daybed. Next to it can be found a matching footstool. The Meridienne enjoyed popularity in Western Europe during the same time as the Recamier and was meant to be used as a bed for midday naps, when the sun is closest to the meridian.
Armless chaise lounges are designed to conform to the natural body shape, thus, eliminating the need for the arms. The head and neck are supported by the back of the furniture while the body is supported by the seat itself. Day bed chaise lounges are designed for an upright sitting instead of a reclining position. Its design may not be as body-friendly as the other types but it has its purpose, namely, as a bench-cum-lounger.
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.
