In America and England they were popular during the Victorian era and were usually placed in the bedroom. It was thought to be lazy to take a nap in bed during the day, but if you fell asleep reading or relaxing on the chaise you were not so lazy. There are still indoor chaises being made but most are used for the patio or near a pool.
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.
