Indoor chaise lounges come upholstered in a variety of materials including leathers, fabrics and microfibers for easy cleaning. Many include storage space beneath the lounger for added convenience, great for those who are untidy or who often mislay their possessions. Chaise also come in a variety of designs that are best suited to a number of different locations. The French style lounge chair for example is best suited to a living room or bedroom interior, while the more formal coaster design befits an office or showroom. Before investing in a chaise lounge, it is recommended that you research the different options available to find one that best suits your space.
These lounges can be used indoors or outdoors so the materials for their cushions vary. Indoor chaise lounge cushions are usually stuffed with foam and covered with common fabrics. Outdoor cushions, however, need to be more specialized in order to resist the sun, rain and other external factors. As such, they are usually made of synthetic materials like polyester, olefin, acrylic, Sunbrealla or Outdura. These materials are light-weight but durable making them ideal for outdoor cushioning. They are flexible so the cushions don't deform or wrinkle. They are also resistant to mold and mildew, stains and fading.
The furniture's height of popularity was during the 1800 and 1900s. As the population grew and started to move out into the suburbs this piece of furniture took on a new look being stripped down and were often seen on people's patios. Because they are so comfortable and great for relaxing in it was the logical next step for this type of furniture, the outdoors chaise lounge.
The Recamier is sometimes mistaken for a chaise lounge because of its similar appearance, but they do in fact look different. This seat was named for its appearance in the 1800 painting of Mme. Recamier by Jacques-Louis David and came thereafter to be associated with the French socialite. 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.
