So what exactly is a chaise lounge? The phrase comes from the French for 'long chair' which pretty much sums up what it is. The French popularized this form of furniture centuries ago and the concept crossed the ocean to the United States with immigrants. In today's homes, they're popular indoors as daybeds or comfy reading chairs, or outside on the patio, or by the pool as sunbathing beds, or just places to stretch out and unwind.
The chair stays true to neo-classical sensibilities, while sporting a rounded backrest which extends into two sloping armrests, thus taking on a wide U shape. They closely resemble a traditional French lit bateau, or boat bed, though designed for common areas rather than the bedroom. Predominantly backless, there are some Recamiers with backs along the long edge of the seat. The term itself Recamier can be applied to other loose types of furniture design.
