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.
In today's hectic world it is no wonder that it is now growing in popularity again. An upholstered one makes an ideal choice for a conservatory or even an office space but is most frequently found in the bedroom where they make it an excellent place in which to escape for a few hours during the day and relax with a good book or even to catch an afternoon nap.
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.
