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.
There are a number of pool lounge chairs which are now available in the market which are simple yet decent designed mostly made of a few strips of metal and plastic sheets to hold the weight of a person. There are however more complex designs available as well with many adjusting levers to ensure the comfort of its users and are made of aluminum or other light weight alloys which also do not get heat up under the sun. Others might have inflatable tubes attached to them making them afloat on the pool water, some might have day built-in beds as well.
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.
Another is scale. A lounge chair shouldn't overwhelm the space you're putting it in. That was part of the problem with the old style loungers. They were massive, especially when grandpa reclined it all the way back. It could suck the visual life out of a room. Lounge chairs today are much more subdued in scale yet still full featured and far more attractive.
