Brief History, the chaise lounge, as it is also called, originated from 16th-century France. It become popular in Europe and was later imported to the United States during the 1930s where it was primarily used an outdoor patio seat or an indoor recliner. Then and now, the lounge furniture was designed to be versatile, beautiful and functional on both sides of the ocean. Emphasis must be placed on the fact that the American spelling for the furniture differs from its French counterpart. In French, it is "chaise longue" (long chair) but Americans altered it to "chaise lounge" because the user was expected to lounge in it.
Since its first appearance some 300-some years ago in France, the chaise lounge has come a long way as far as design of form. From the very first model came modifications like the Recamier, the Duchesse Brisee, and the Meridienne. Today, the chaise lounge has also crossed into the outdoor domain, where it enjoys a good deal of popularity in gardens, on decks and in backyards. Here are some differences between indoor and outdoor chairs.
Materials Used, during its early years of development, the lounge was made from natural materials like wood and rattan, which were often carved with stylized designs. With the modern times also came the modern materials like plastic and metal although wood is still the most popular material mainly because of its beauty, durability and versatility. Nowadays, the most popular wood materials for use in pieces of chaise lounger furniture are cedar and teak. These woods are known for their weatherproof properties as well as their excellent grain patterns.
