When it comes to furniture inside the house, the most flexible one is the chaise lounge. It has a reclining design for the backside which is purposefully designed to give comfort and to maintain proper posture of the one sitting on it. Sitting on a chaise lounge is definitely more than a comfort and relaxation as it also can be placed on your patio, garden, beside the pool, or even on the beach. As time goes by, the Strathwood chaise lounges have been made in different designs and creativity to please the customers.
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.
There exist few cultures who exhibit opulence and elegance as well as the French. When it comes to design, furniture is no different, and the chaise lounge is one piece of European innovation that is the living definition of luxury and sophistication. Aside from the recognizable basic chaise lounge design, there are some variations to the form which you may have mistaken for the same thing. Some of these include the Meridienne, the Duchesse and the Recamier.
As one of those anomalies of folk etymology, the term "chaise lounge" is actually an error of American invention. The proper term for the chair is "chaise longue," but Americans have been mispronouncing the word since 1850 so it has become engrained into the culture. Today, both versions are accepted, though the former is by far the more popular. In its simplest description, a chaise lounge is a couch-like seat, (usually) upholstered, but in the shape of an extended chair and with four legs.
