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.
Armless chaise lounges are designed to conform to the natural body shape, thus, eliminating the need for the arms. The head and neck are supported by the back of the furniture while the body is supported by the seat itself.
In order to be in a position to understand when to use a chaise lounge, it would be a great idea to first acquaint ourselves with what such a chaise lounge is, in the first place. As it turns, the chaise lounge is simply a chair whose sitting area is extended to accommodate 'the sitter's' legs. So unlike a usual lounge, where the legs of the person sitting on dangle to the ground, on the chaise lounge, the legs remain on the lounge; making it - in essence - something of a cross between a lounge and a bed.
