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.
A decorators dream, the chaise lounge can be enhanced with cushions in a myriad of styles and fabrics. This allows you to change the look of your patio area according to the season or indeed the event, for little cost. Match your recliner cushions with your flower bed during spring; add vibrant color for summer or even theme with your company logo colors for a work related cocktail party.
Basically, the chaise lounger is an elongated chair resembling a couch except for two things - first, the back support portion of the lounge slants toward the back, thus, making for a reclined position with the feet fully elongated possible; and second; the armrests may or may not be present in the chaise lounge. The individual was expected to lie on his back while using the lounge furniture. In contrast, the recliner chairs from ancient Greece had men and women lying on their sides.
