If you are looking for something that will last for a long time and look sleek and stylish on your patio you may want to consider a wood frame chaise lounge. These are actual pieces of furniture that are heavy and not portable at all so they will stay on the patio. Some do have wheels so that you can move them with some ease. Wooden Lounges come in several different types of wood and can be stained to resemble any type of wood. They can also be painted.
When you think of a chaise lounge, you probably envision a leather recliner placed in front of the television set. These are usually very comfortable because they are soft and fluffy and most of all, people think that they are strictly for indoor use. Today, you can have the same degree of comfort and satisfaction outdoors. Outdoor loungers can be portable with free spinning wheels for ease of moving them from one place to another. The wheels only engage when the lounger is lifted on one end and are equipped with durable hinges and latches for adjustments. They are usually placed near the pool or beach areas with comfort features like thick and comfortable cushions.
Far from the likes of the original prototypes, the outdoor chaise lounge strays from the strict definition of what the seat should actually look like. In translation, the chaise longue simply means a long chair in French, and so applies to any number of outdoor recliners. The lines begin to blur here, as some pieces of outdoor furniture, the chaise lounge, sun lounger and recliner especially, are difficult to actually tell apart. The key parts are just the backrest and ability to lie nearly supine with legs above the ground. Aside from that, there is a definite amount of crossover that must just be accepted.
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.
