This French inspired romantic piece of fine furniture adds a feeling of warmth to a sitting room and can be dressed up with just a few small scatter cushions. One thing that seems to surprise a lot of people is that today's chaise lounge has such a wide range from which to choose from. The first image that comes to mind for most people is something that's all white and tinged with gold edging, whilst this style is still available and would fit in comfortably with a formal living room; the modern and contemporary designs with their clean looking sleek designs are proving to be very popular. They come with a complete line of fabrics to choose from that will add a modern feel to a very classic design. The chaise lounge should actually come with a warning; whilst most people will buy one for their good looks and classy appearance they will tend to make you spend a lot more time lounging than actually doing boring housework.
Maybe one with wheels to follow the sun and a pull out tray for drinks and your novel is what you have been dreaming of. Or perhaps one with armrests is more your style. There are so many styles of teak chaise lounges available you are bound to find on that suits your fancy. Try one that is a mix of teak, steel and durable batyline fabric for a look right out of South Beach. Or outfit your deck or poolside with loungers that are the picture of modern Asian allure.
In the light weight category are plastic lounges that can be used for patio use. They have frames that require the use of a cushion that is tied onto the frame. Plastic framed lounges are easy to lift and fold but might be a little bulkier than the aluminum variety. If you put them on your patio be sure to take care when a heavy wind blows up. The wind will take any plastic or aluminum chaise lounges and toss them off the patio easily.
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.
