Basic Design, basically, the chaise lounger is an elongated chair resembling a couch except for two things - first, the back support portion of the lounge slants toward the back, thus, making for a reclined position with the feet fully elongated possible; and second; the armrests may or may not be present in the chaise lounge. The individual was expected to lie on his back while using the lounge furniture. In contrast, the recliner chairs from ancient Greece had men and women lying on their sides.
A chaise end sofa looks exactly like any other sofa apart from the fact it has an arm at one end but is exposed at the other. Now you'll probably be able to paint a mental picture of what I'm talking about, so I can move on to why they represent such a good investment. What is immediately striking about a chaise end sofa is its image. Once you enter a room it makes a bold statement about your personal style and taste. This isn't to say that they're garish and only for the ultra trendy, it simply means that they catch your attention. So if you're looking for a focal point for your living area, then a chaise end might well be a good choice.
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.
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.
