You can buy chaise lounges from a variety of retailers, including your local department store or ecommerce websites. Depending on your budget or requirements, it is also worth looking into buying a chaise lounge direct from the furniture manufacture as they can create bespoke pieces suited to your specific needs. For a cheaper option try consulting online furniture sales where products are frequently discounted and there are many bargains to be had. Chaise lounges are a great investment; providing a lifetime of comfort and luxury and are guaranteed to be the envy of your friends.
Emphasis must be placed on the fact that the American spelling for the furniture differs from its French counterpart. In French, it is "chaise longue" (long chair) but Americans altered it to "chaise lounge" because the user was expected to lounge in it.
The chair, throughout the centuries, has been modified and designed slightly differently from area to area. By the time the 1600s came along, the chaise lounge was adopted by the French and turned into one of the most lush and lavish pieces of furniture a person could have up to current times. The French designers started a trend in Europe with their chaise designs. Rather than entirely copy the simple designs that the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans used earlier, the French borrowed the basic form and added upholstery.
