If you are looking to make a purchase of a chaise lounge for your home, or wondering if you need one, here are a few things to think about.
Wood chaise lounge chairs are made with thick wood segments that make up the main frame. Across the entire top are slats which are spaced evenly. This surface is designed to support the weight of a full sized adult while allowing air to breath. Metal versions often incorporate fabric or foam over the top to take the edge off of the harder surfaces. Cotton or foam is contained within decorative fabric which is made to be used outside. The cushion can be taken off if cleaning is needed or if the user wants to use the lounge without the cushion.
Basically, the chaise lounger is an elongated chair resembling a couch except for two things - first, the back support portion of the lounge slants toward the back, thus, making for a reclined position with the feet fully elongated possible; and second; the armrests may or may not be present in the chaise lounge. The individual was expected to lie on his back while using the lounge furniture. In contrast, the recliner chairs from ancient Greece had men and women lying on their sides.
