You do not have to have a swimming pool in order to enjoy the style and comfort of a classic teak chaise lounge. However, with one of these great loungers, you will feel as though you are relaxing at one of the best summertime spots around. You have several different backrest positions that you can take advantage of with a chaise lounge including completely flat. As if that is not enough, there is even a comfortable knee bend section that will give you support, comfort and the right amount of elevation when you want to take a load off of your feet.
Originally, the frames for the very first chaise lounge chairs used in drawing rooms was made from wood. Variations on the indoor chairs also brought about a mobile chaise lounge made from metal used by the French army. This seat was portable and could be folded and unfolded. Today, most indoor chaise lounge frames are still made from wood, some of which is ornately carved. While there also exist chaise loungers with metal frames, they are not nearly as portable or foldable as were their predecessors. For indoor use, it is assumed that the chair will not be moved around very often, so weight and ease of movement are not of chief priority.
The Recamier is sometimes mistaken for a chaise lounge because of its similar appearance, but they do in fact look different. This seat was named for its appearance in the 1800 painting of me. Recamier by Jacques-Louis David and came thereafter to be associated with the French socialite.
This is true with lounge chairs for the outdoors as well. New designs and materials have made it easy to find the right lounge chair for the deck, pool area or patio. The biggest problem is really defining what a lounge chair is, since the description is used for anything from a lovely cushioned chair that looks a lot like it belongs indoors to massive chaise lounges that are ideal for relaxing and tanning poolside. Again, there's no right or wrong answer in finding the right lounge chair for the great outdoors. It's a matter of personal taste and style.
