For budding interior designers and home décor enthusiasts a chaise lounge is a must-have piece of luxury furniture that looks sleek and sophisticated in any interior. Chaise lounges are extended upholstered chairs which resemble couches but with open ends for a more laid back seating experience. Chaise lounges are of 18th century French origin but have evolved through the ages to come in a variety of shapes and styles to match the more contemporary interior. Chaise can be upholstered in the fabric of your choosing and are a great addition to your home furnishings scheme.
Before making a purchase, it is a good idea to know the different materials used in making outdoor lounges in order to decide on one for your home. Aluminum chaise lounges are a popular choice for outdoor use, as aluminum has a high strength to weight ratio and is relatively inexpensive. It's not the most environmentally conscious choice, however, as extracting aluminum from the earth is a destructive process.
If you choose to have your outdoor chaise lounge permanent this doesn't necessarily mean it's bolted or sealed to your patio or ground. These versions are usually just heavier and made with different bases than that of the portable versions. These options will most likely have wheels or thick legs to guarantee they stay put in case of high winds of crazy weather. If you choose you can have your chaise mounted in the cement or pounded into the ground, but they are usually heavy enough to stay put. Whichever option you choose be sure to do some thorough shopping before buying.
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.
