A specific and well-known take on the basic form is the Duchesse Brisee. Meaning "broken," brisee refers to how the chair is divided into the aforementioned chair design with the addition of a long footstool. At the same time, a brisee can also be two smaller chaise lounge chairs separated in the middle by a shared footrest.
These days these chairs come in all sizes and shapes, from modern designs that echo the work of the great masters of the Modernist movement to soft, supple loungers that will relax you as you rock back and forth in flawless fashion, thanks to the inclusion of a glider mechanism. The good news is that there is no right or wrong in choosing the right chair, as long as you follow a few basic recommendations. Obviously, you want to put comfort above anything else. The idea of a lounge chair is to relax and recharge - being uncomfortable in the name of fashion or saving a couple bucks will only cause you to wonder why you even thought of buying these chairs for your home or outdoor entertainment space.
One of the oldest variety of chaise lounge, the Duchesse dates back to around 1785-95. This version has a pronounced chair-like backrest curving out into two armrests. Unlike the Meridienne, the Duchesse looks more like an armchair (albeit a distorted one) than a daybed. Why it's called the Duchesse is somewhat a mystery, as there is no history to support whether it refers to a specific duchess.
Keeping with Tradition. The most traditional hammocks are rope hammocks meant to be suspended between two posts or two trees. Today, they come in a wide range of colors, sizes, patterns and styles, so that you can easily choose the one that suits your tastes and needs the best.
