Coming in timber or resin, the chaise lounge can come as its own single recliner unit or can be matched with other pieces including tables and settee chairs. The open slat style allows your skin to breathe as you take in the midday sun and the optional side table conveniently houses your refreshments, radio, sunglasses and novel. Similarly, the 3 or 4 recline positions allow you to absorb the sun at exactly the right angle when the sun moves throughout the day.
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.
Day bed chaise lounges are designed for an upright sitting instead of a reclining position. Its design may not be as body-friendly as the other types but it has its purpose, namely, as a bench-cum-lounger.
