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.
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 cushion filling of this indoor chaise is like any other piece of upholstered indoor furniture. The outside covering is where the attractiveness and beauty lies, especially if the lounge is meant to radiate opulence, and this is usually reflected in expensive fabrics, like satin and velvet. Aside from the cushion material, the patterns and colors that you can choose from are endless. Solid, block color, Asian print, paisley, you name it. If you don't like the way it looks, a lounge is reupholstered as easily as a couch or old armchair.
There is no better way to enjoy your patio or backyard then adding an outdoor chaise lounge. It not only exude class and luxury, but it helps you relax while you are reading a book or even watching your kids or grandkids play. You can also choose whether or not you want your chaise lounge to be permanent fixtures in your backyard or if you want it to be portable. Most chaises are foldable and are easily taken to sporting events, camping trips, and other outdoor outings. But for those of us who want to create a more permanent sitting area, you are also taken care of.
