Retractable backs are one of the most redeeming features found on some chaise lounges. The Teddington and Kingston models are two types that include retractable backs. With 5 different reclining positions switching from sunbathing to reading is no problem. Multiple positions allow anyone to experience the comfort of a chaise lounge without restriction. Whether the lounge is left fully upright, laid out completely flat, or anything in between, this style chaise accommodates everyone.
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.
A chaise is often considered a particularly elite or luxurious item of furniture that is not on the list of essential home furnishing items. However they have evolved for present day use from the typical image of opulence into a functional and versatile item of furniture that can be incorporated into almost any style of interior. Chaise might be used as recliners that come with footstalls, double recliners which can accommodate two people or sofa-like pieces that can provide additional space and comfort to both residents and guests.
