They were traditionally made of wood but today are made in wrought iron, aluminum and plastic as well. These materials are especially popular for outdoor use as they can resist the elements. Wood is still a popular material especially teak, wicker and rattan. Teak is the most handsome of woods with its dark sheen while wicker has a nostalgic colonial appeal. Wooden loungers are perfect from both indoor and outdoor use.
They are durable, relatively inexpensive, and are often molded to resemble more expensive and traditional materials like wood and concrete. Though more fragile, wicker is a popular choice but is not meant to be left completely outdoors and unprotected from the elements. Keeping your wicker chaise lounge beneath a covered porch or deck will keep it away from rain and too much direct sunlight. For inside the frame, cushion supports like the strap and the sling are often employed. These are strong and usually made from a waterproof nylon or plastic. As far as innovations, the zero gravity chair is built for maximum comfort and so its user can more fully relax without putting any extra pressure onto any part of the body, especially the seat.
The chair stays true to neo-classical sensibilities, while sporting a rounded backrest which extends into two sloping armrests, thus taking on a wide U shape. They closely resemble a traditional French lit bateau, or boat bed, though designed for common areas rather than the bedroom. Predominantly backless, there are some Recamiers with backs along the long edge of the seat. The term itself Recamier can be applied to other loose types of furniture design.
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.
