In America and England they were popular during the Victorian era and were usually placed in the bedroom. It was thought to be lazy to take a nap in bed during the day, but if you fell asleep reading or relaxing on the chaise you were not so lazy. There are still indoor chaises being made but most are used for the patio or near a pool.
The result resembles a sort of daybed, one with a headrest at one end and can have a backrest or be backless. In translation, the French word actually just means a "long chair" and so in the language the chaise lounge can refer to any number of indoor and outdoor reclining seats and deckchairs. In practice, the chaise lounge can seat two to three people sitting upright, or one person can lie comfortably with her feet suspended above the ground. As per design, these chairs can be simply adorned or famously done up with tufted cushions, ornate carvings and svelte fabrics. Antique version tend to be fancier affairs than contemporary chaise lounges, especially as today's models include sun loungers and other stripped down outdoor furniture.
This French inspired romantic piece of fine furniture adds a feeling of warmth to a sitting room and can be dressed up with just a few small scatter cushions. One thing that seems to surprise a lot of people is that today's chaise lounge has such a wide range from which to choose from. The first image that comes to mind for most people is something that's all white and tinged with gold edging, whilst this style is still available and would fit in comfortably with a formal living room; the modern and contemporary designs with their clean looking sleek designs are proving to be very popular. They come with a complete line of fabrics to choose from that will add a modern feel to a very classic design. The chaise lounge should actually come with a warning; whilst most people will buy one for their good looks and classy appearance they will tend to make you spend a lot more time lounging than actually doing boring housework.
Imagine sprawling back in total comfort with your feet up sipping a sundowner, reading a book or just enjoying the sunset or a picture on the wall. As a way to sit down with your feet up or just kick back in total comfort, you really can't beat a chaise lounge chair. A chaise can be used for an afternoon siesta or just a place to sprawl and read or think. It's the most relaxation-inducing item of furniture on the market.
