Looking at the lounge chair, you will probably think that the outdoor chaise lounge is some sort of a bed if not for its hinge point and latches allowing you to adjust the sections to your level of comfort.
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.
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.
The benefits of having chaise lounge chairs are that they are easy to maintain. They have a natural feel and look that makes them easy to take care after. These are also flexible as they can be decorated with colored cushions that makes them match any occasion you might have. You also have the option of buying lounge chairs that are made with only plain wood, which are ideal for the outdoors. For most of these outdoor lounge chairs, teak is used as it is durable, easy to maintain and versatile.
