The chaise lounge is not just a style of furniture, but a work of art offering the feeling of decadence and romance at first sight. The term "chaise lounge" is an Anglicized version of the French term, "chaise longue." "Chaise longue" means, literally, "long chair." They are sometimes known as "fainting couches," as well. Currently, the term applies to any type of furniture that provides a person with a back or an arm rest on one end that sometimes tapers down the backside of the chair, resulting in one end resembling a bench.
Indoor chaise lounges come upholstered in a variety of materials including leathers, fabrics and microfibers for easy cleaning. Many include storage space beneath the lounger for added convenience, great for those who are untidy or who often mislay their possessions. Chaise also come in a variety of designs that are best suited to a number of different locations. The French style lounge chair for example is best suited to a living room or bedroom interior, while the more formal coaster design befits an office or showroom. Before investing in a chaise lounge, it is recommended that you research the different options available to find one that best suits your space.
Ideally, the chaise seat should only be used where there is adequate space to comfortably accommodate it. Thanks to the extension for legs it comes with, the typical chaise recline will tend to consume considerably more space than the typical lounge. Therefore although you may desire to have a chaise seat, if your living room is too small, you would be well advised not to take it on. Ideally, pieces of furniture like the chaise lounge are best used in the kinds of houses where the lounge is a hall's size. But if all you have is a 'crib' it would be inappropriate to try to squeeze a chaise recline in there.
