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.
If you like to make the most of your outdoor area, spending as much time as you can outside year round, you will want quality outdoor furniture that doesn't have to be covered or moved around at the whims of the weather. You want solid and durable furniture that requires little maintenance so that you can spend more time relaxing with a good book or entertaining family and friends. Teak outdoor furniture offers you that stability.
The aluminum chaise lounge will probably not last very long. The nylon strips tend to get frayed and break after awhile and the frame tends to bend. The plastic type tends to get brittle after a few years of sitting in the sun and they crack and break. There are also resin frames that you can get that will last a bit longer but they too tend to get brittle after several years in the sun. Resin frames require a separate cushion just like the plastic variety.
The frame for an outdoor chaise lounge can be made from a wide range of furniture building materials. The only condition is that it must be somewhat weather-resistant. Wood that has been treated and varnished will usually last a long time with the right amount of upkeep, as will metal. For elegance and traditional design, a wrought iron frame is beautiful but also arguably heavy. An aluminum frame does not connote the same elegance, but is much lighter and looks more modern. Both are subject to rusting after enough time. Plastics like polywood and resin are relatively recent innovations and are perfect for use in patio furniture.
