Chaise lounges are thought to be modeled on common furniture from previous civilizations. For instance, the Egyptians had a similar piece of furniture that was a combination between a chair and a daybed. They were constructed of sticks and rawhide or sticks and cord. A little later on, the Greeks had a similar chair that was used during gatherings and was called a "kline." The Roman civilizations didnt upholster furniture because their versions were cast in bronze or carefully carved from wood. To make their versions more comfortable they used pillows, blankets and hides. The Romans also added legs.
Designed in the late 16th century, a chase lounge was initially a chair that was in a lady's bedroom, where she would greet people. Bedrooms back then were not just for sleeping, but were just as much a greeting and sitting room, and were decorated accordingly.
The beauty of chaise lounge furniture is that it is adaptable to just about any indoor and outdoor space. As a result, it can be moved from the bedroom, dining room and living room to the porch, pool and even the outdoor deck. Of course, most wooden chaise lounges have removable cushions.
