Resembling an Adirondack chair, the Original Series Chaise Lounge, looks different than most other chaises. With the same slatted back as the Adirondack chair, this chaise is quality constructed, yet classical. Placed lakeside this type of chaise lounge looks elegant and inviting. The arms add support while reading or relaxing. With over 25 color selections, the Original Series Chaise Lounge coincides with any exterior décor or adds vibrancy to a simple patio.
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.
Some chaise lounges are also equipped with a small side table. This handy inclusion is the perfect place to rest a book or to keep a cool drink close by. For convenient and simple storage, the table slides directly under the chaise.
