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.
For budding interior designers and home décor enthusiasts a chaise lounge is a must-have piece of luxury furniture that looks sleek and sophisticated in any interior. Chaise lounges are extended upholstered chairs which resemble couches but with open ends for a more laid back seating experience. Chaise lounges are of 18th century French origin but have evolved through the ages to come in a variety of shapes and styles to match the more contemporary interior. Chaise can be upholstered in the fabric of your choosing and are a great addition to your home furnishings scheme.
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.
