Next is the lovely Meridienne. This is one of the more interesting types of chaise lounge because of its eye-catching asymmetry. The top of the chair begins with a higher than normal headrest, followed by a gradually sloping backrest down the side, and the result is something which looks like a daybed. Next to it can be found a matching footstool. The Meridienne enjoyed popularity in Western Europe during the same time as the Recamier and was meant to be used as a bed for midday naps, when the sun is closest to the meridian.
One of the oldest variety of chaise lounge, the Duchesse dates back to around 1785-95. This version has a pronounced chair-like backrest curving out into two armrests. Unlike the Meridienne, the Duchesse looks more like an armchair (albeit a distorted one) than a daybed. Why it's called the Duchesse is somewhat a mystery, as there is no history to support whether it refers to a specific duchess.
Most pools are lined with many chaises and if you go on a cruise you will also see them lining the deck of the ship. The materials used to make them are mostly aluminum, plastic or wood and you can get them to match just about any budget. They can look like expensive furnishings that are very strong. They are also made out of light weight materials making them easy to pick up and take with you. A lounge allows you to recline up off the ground so the portable type is popular to take to the beach so you sit above the sand.
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.
