Outdoor chaise lounges are one of the most comfortable furniture pieces one can own. They allow one to recline while being fully supported. Chaises are very common pieces of outdoor furniture and many folks choose to include them as part of the seating areas, especially by pools. Some chaises are adjustable and can be fully reclined so that they function like an outdoor bed. These pieces of outdoor furniture are ideal for sunbathers, those who enjoy a nap in nature, and those who use their outdoor space for optimum relaxation.
As one of those anomalies of folk etymology, the term "chaise lounge" is actually an error of American invention. The proper term for the chair is "chaise longue," but Americans have been mispronouncing the word since 1850 so it has become engrained into the culture. Today, both versions are accepted, though the former is by far the more popular. In its simplest description, a chaise lounge is a couch-like seat, (usually) upholstered, but in the shape of an extended chair and with four legs.
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.
The right choice for any outdoor condition, teak is also a very adaptable material. To create the ultimate look for your backyard, whether you're looking to style it after your favorite resort or create a more country-styled feel, teak can be teamed with a variety of other materials to provide both functionality and fashion. Steel or fabric, mixed with teak, creates a very harmonious look. You can also consider a number options such as extra wide arm rests to make your teak chaise lounger the ultimate place to lounge.
