The chaise lounges of of the sixteenth century often had wood accents and luxurious cushioning that made them very comfortable for a variety of activities. From dining to relaxing to napping, the chaise lounge remains a very versatile design. They are often made with plush fabrics that include silk, brocade, velvet, and satin. They can be found in sitting rooms, salons, libraries, and bedrooms. Features that have been present over the last couple of thousand years ago are sometimes revived and paired with modern techniques, such as gold leaf applications and cast metals.
Apart from recreational use, the chaise lounge has also made some appearances in the medical profession. Patients stretch themselves out and pour out the contents of their minds and hearts as part of therapy.
While the proper name for them is a chaise lounge, you may also hear this piece of furniture called a fainting couch, likely due to the image of the emotionally overcome southern lass above.
