Many people might well stare at the page blankly when I talk about chaise end sofas, so let me start by giving you a definition of exactly what a chaise end sofa is. The term is taken from the French phrase chaise lounge, which simply means a long chair. You'll have definitely seen a chaise lounge even if you haven't heard the term before.
Functional Uses, the beauty of chaise lounge furniture is that it is adaptable to just about any indoor and outdoor space. As a result, it can be moved from the bedroom, dining room and living room to the porch, pool and even the outdoor deck. Of course, most wooden chaise lounges have removable cushions.
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.
For outdoors you really can't go wrong with a finely crafted wooden lounge chair, either one with cushions or without. Wood lounge chairs along with wicker ones can really handle the elements, even the worst winter storms, with very little care and maintenance. And you'll never have to go hunting for them once a storm has passed.
