The chaise continues to be a very popular piece of furniture in today's American culture. This is especially true when it comes to furnishing outdoor and enclosed spaces. It is the ultimate in relaxation, but provides support to do quiet activities outside, like read, snack, knit, or conversation. Chaise longues are also available in many different styles and lengths. Some will reflect the chaises most popular era (the Rococo Period), and some are very sleek and modern in appearance. Some chaises are created with modern ergonomic design to provide maximum comfort.
There exist few cultures who exhibit opulence and elegance as well as the French. When it comes to design, furniture is no different, and the chaise lounge is one piece of European innovation that is the living definition of luxury and sophistication. Aside from the recognizable basic chaise lounge design, there are some variations to the form which you may have mistaken for the same thing. Some of these include the Meridienne, the Duchesse and the Recamier.
In America and England they were popular during the Victorian era and were usually placed in the bedroom. It was thought to be lazy to take a nap in bed during the day, but if you fell asleep reading or relaxing on the chaise you were not so lazy. There are still indoor chaises being made but most are used for the patio or near a pool.
The classic indoor chaise lounge screams French decadence with its flowing lines and hardly a straight line or ninety degree angle in sight. French furniture makers are well renowned for their artistic flair and of being able to bring a touch of romance to their furniture and this is nowhere more obvious than in the classic chaise lounge. So if you're looking for a classy but somehow romantic piece of furniture whether for the bedroom, sitting room, or even your study the chaise lounge is your only choice, its like buying two pieces of furniture in one. Firstly there's the comfort, the long chair allows you to stretch out, lie down or sit virtually in any position, so it's great for reading a book or for taking an afternoon nap. Secondly it's extremely good looks make it very difficult for an ordinary chair or sofa to match its plush, smooth lines.
