As one of those anomalies of folk etymology, the term "chaise lounge" is actually an error of American invention. The proper term for the chair is "chaise longue," but Americans have been mispronouncing the word since 1850 so it has become engrained into the culture. Today, both versions are accepted, though the former is by far the more popular. In its simplest description, a chaise lounge is a couch-like seat, (usually) upholstered, but in the shape of an extended chair and with four legs.
The words chaise lounge translate to long chair in French. The French were the first ones to start making them as commercial furnishing for the home in the 18th century. Only the rich could afford these plush pieces of furniture but as time went on they became more affordable and not only kings could have them but so could regular people.
