The chaise lounge is an amalgam of the day bed and the lounge chair. The day bed is likely the heaviest influence in the creation of the Chaise lounge. The day bed design was originally utilized in Egypt, and has been a continual inspiration for designers across many cultures and time periods. The time period for the merger of the day bed and the chair to produce the chaise lounge is unclear, but this style of lounge began its rise in popularity in the Americas in the early twentieth century. The name "chaise longue" is French in origin and literally means long-chair. The similarity between the French word longue and the English word lounge, the term is commonly mispronounced by most Americans. The pronunciation of "longue" is much more similar to the English word "long" with a long G sound on the end.
Since its first appearance some 300-some years ago in France, the chaise lounge has come a long way as far as design of form. From the very first model came modifications like the Recamier, the Duchesse Brisee, and the Meridienne. Today, the chaise lounge has also crossed into the outdoor domain, where it enjoys a good deal of popularity in gardens, on decks and in backyards. Here are some differences between indoor and outdoor chairs.
