Basic Design, basically, the chaise lounger is an elongated chair resembling a couch except for two things - first, the back support portion of the lounge slants toward the back, thus, making for a reclined position with the feet fully elongated possible; and second; the armrests may or may not be present in the chaise lounge. The individual was expected to lie on his back while using the lounge furniture. In contrast, the recliner chairs from ancient Greece had men and women lying on their sides.
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.
They were traditionally made of wood but today are made in wrought iron, aluminum and plastic as well. These materials are especially popular for outdoor use as they can resist the elements. Wood is still a popular material especially teak, wicker and rattan. Teak is the most handsome of woods with its dark sheen while wicker has a nostalgic colonial appeal. Wooden loungers are perfect from both indoor and outdoor use.
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.
