Imagine sprawling back in total comfort with your feet up sipping a sundowner, reading a book or just enjoying the sunset or a picture on the wall. As a way to sit down with your feet up or just kick back in total comfort, you really can't beat a chaise lounge chair. A chaise can be used for an afternoon siesta or just a place to sprawl and read or think. It's the most relaxation-inducing item of furniture on the market.
This is true with lounge chairs for the outdoors as well. New designs and materials have made it easy to find the right lounge chair for the deck, pool area or patio. The biggest problem is really defining what a lounge chair is, since the description is used for anything from a lovely cushioned chair that looks a lot like it belongs indoors to massive chaise lounges that are ideal for relaxing and tanning poolside. Again, there's no right or wrong answer in finding the right lounge chair for the great outdoors. It's a matter of personal taste and style.
The chaise lounge is an amalgam of the day bed and the lounge chair. The day bed is likely the heaviest influence in the creation of the Chaise lounge. The day bed design was originally utilized in Egypt, and has been a continual inspiration for designers across many cultures and time periods. The time period for the merger of the day bed and the chair to produce the chaise lounge is unclear, but this style of lounge began its rise in popularity in the Americas in the early twentieth century. The name "chaise longue" is French in origin and literally means long-chair. The similarity between the French word longue and the English word lounge, the term is commonly mispronounced by most Americans. The pronunciation of "longue" is much more similar to the English word "long" with a long G sound on the end.
The frame for an outdoor chaise lounge can be made from a wide range of furniture building materials. The only condition is that it must be somewhat weather-resistant. Wood that has been treated and varnished will usually last a long time with the right amount of upkeep, as will metal. For elegance and traditional design, a wrought iron frame is beautiful but also arguably heavy. An aluminum frame does not connote the same elegance, but is much lighter and looks more modern. Both are subject to rusting after enough time. Plastics like polywood and resin are relatively recent innovations and are perfect for use in patio furniture.
