Picture a southern lady. She is the vision of beauty, waiting for her beau to arrive. Her waiting lasts some time and finally she is told that he will not be coming for her, that he has left with another woman. Her hand flies to her forehead and she swoons sideways, falling right off of the chair she is sitting in, petticoats flapping in the air.
Emphasis must be placed on the fact that the American spelling for the furniture differs from its French counterpart. In French, it is "chaise longue" (long chair) but Americans altered it to "chaise lounge" because the user was expected to lounge in it.
For chaise lounging on the go, a portable lounge chair is best. Unlike the heavy lounges kept in the backyard, the portable varieties are light and maneuverable. The best feature about them is that they fold down flat and can be popped into the car. Some chairs come with nylon cases with easy to use carry straps. Portable lounges still have a lot of features despite their smaller profile. Arm rests, cup holders, flat stands and other features are built into them. Large and bulky lounges have wheels on the bottom that let them be moved without back strain. Give chaise lounges a try to experience comfort like no other.
