So what exactly is a chaise lounge? The phrase comes from the French for 'long chair' which pretty much sums up what it is. The French popularized this form of furniture centuries ago and the concept crossed the ocean to the United States with immigrants. In today's homes, they're popular indoors as daybeds or comfy reading chairs, or outside on the patio, or by the pool as sunbathing beds, or just places to stretch out and unwind.
During the summer you can find aluminum and plastic chaise in just about any store and they might cost anywhere from USD $25 to $50. A nice stylish wooden lounge might cost you $200 or more but remember that they last for much longer. You can also get chaise lounges in steel or wrought iron and you can even find them in wicker.
Chic and Modern, these chaise lounge chairs are sleek with clean lines and wouldn't be out of place even in a loft, spa or salon. The Strathwood Orbital Lounger incorporates a European design with anti-gravity technology, an aluminum frame, removable headrest and a weight capacity of 275 pounds. For comparison shopping, other outdoor chaise lounge chairs with chic and innovative designs are Mesh Zero and Zuo Modern. No matter what type of chaise lounge chair you decide on, it will not only add beauty to your home but it will give you an opportunity to relax and relieve stress of day-to-day life.
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.
