Brief History, the chaise lounge, as it is also called, originated from 16th-century France. It become popular in Europe and was later imported to the United States during the 1930s where it was primarily used an outdoor patio seat or an indoor recliner. Then and now, the lounge furniture was designed to be versatile, beautiful and functional on both sides of the ocean. Emphasis must be placed on the fact that the American spelling for the furniture differs from its French counterpart. In French, it is "chaise longue" (long chair) but Americans altered it to "chaise lounge" because the user was expected to lounge in it.
The cushion filling for an indoor chaise is very much like any other piece of upholstered indoor furniture. It's the outside covering where the beauty usually lies, especially because the chaise lounge is meant to convey opulence, and this is often reflected in expensive fabrics, like satin and velvet. Leather and microsuede are two especially luxurious materials. Aside from the cushion material, the accompanying patterns and colors adorning it are beautiful and endless. Solid, block color, Asian print, paisley, you name it. If you don't like the way it looks, a chaise lounge is reupholstered as easily as a couch or old armchair.
There are pool lounge chairs which have mattresses or foam quilting making the lounge experience enjoyable. The orthodox wooden chair still has no parallel when it comes to elegance. The well polished wooden chair with leather cover foam mattresses is still "IN" and its class statement is evident from its excessive use at five stars hotels, upscale spas and expensive beach houses. Though these classic looking lounge chairs have one great disadvantage as well; they are not generally resistant to water, therefore they are required to be used with extreme care and caution and might require regular maintenance and polish so that the wood work is not tarnished with the passage of time.
You see aluminum lounges all over during the summer. They are extremely portable so you can take them to the beach or on the patio or to a summer outdoor concert. The frame is light being made of aluminum and they usually will fold up small and compact for transportation. You sit on woven nylon strips that are sewn to the frame. You can easily clean this type of chaise and they are popular because of their inexpensive prices.
