A chaise is often considered a particularly elite or luxurious item of furniture that is not on the list of essential home furnishing items. However they have evolved for present day use from the typical image of opulence into a functional and versatile item of furniture that can be incorporated into almost any style of interior. Chaise might be used as recliners that come with footstalls, double recliners which can accommodate two people or sofa-like pieces that can provide additional space and comfort to both residents and guests.
Chaise lounges can also be adapted for both indoor and outdoor use, and can make an iconic centrepiece for your garden party. They come in a variety of styles, including the popular hammock style. This creates a feeling of floating as users are suspended as though on a swing, allowing them to sway gently in the breeze as they relax and soak up the sunshine. Most of these come with umbrellas or canopies for shade and have plenty of padding for extra comfort. Some are even termed 'day beds' owed to how much they resemble the indoor bed; allowing for a luxurious and relaxing experience outside.
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.
Chaise lounge, mention those two words and it conjures up images of Cleopatra, or ladies from the medieval times laying back and being fanned to stay cool but most people will associate this piece of furniture with the French. These two words are actually French and should be spelt Chaise Longue meaning long chair.
