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.
Chaise chairs are great chairs for relaxation and so, you should always select the most comfortable chair you can find. Start by sitting on the chair in the store, if possible, so that you can get a feel for it. If the chair feels comfortable the moment you sit on it, this is no guarantee that you will have the same feeling after extended hours of sitting on it. Remember that you can spend hours sitting on the chair so it must have adequate padding to protect your body from the hard surfaces of the chair.
While the proper name for them is a chaise lounge, you may also hear this piece of furniture called a fainting couch, likely due to the image of the emotionally overcome southern lass above.
