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.
One of the most popular types of outdoor lounge chairs is the traditional format. These types of chairs are high tech and more stylish compared to others. They are however suitable to be used at the backyard and beach side lounging. These traditional chaises are known for the flexible materials used in constructing them thus allowing you to easily recline to a comfortable position. These can be found with or without armrests or padded seats. There are also a couple of designs that have padded headrest to provide comfort for the whole body.
Compared to indoor chaise lounges, outdoor lounges are generally cheaper and are not upholstered. They might also get less use than an indoor one, as most people seem to spend the bulk of their time indoors, watching television. Whereas upholstered lounges are strictly a luxury item in most cases, outdoor chaises may actually be a beneficial item that get people to spend more time outdoors. This makes them a better purchase for most people than a normal chaise would be.
This piece of furniture is now having a renaissance of its own again and can be found in a lot of homes. They are no longer restricted to Hollywood movies or as the couch used in a psychiatrist office. The Chaise lounge is now finding its way back into a lot of homes. The name was changed when it became incorporated into the furniture making industry in the United States.
