The chaise lounges of of the sixteenth century often had wood accents and luxurious cushioning that made them very comfortable for a variety of activities. From dining to relaxing to napping, the chaise lounge remains a very versatile design. They are often made with plush fabrics that include silk, brocade, velvet, and satin. They can be found in sitting rooms, salons, libraries, and bedrooms. Features that have been present over the last couple of thousand years ago are sometimes revived and paired with modern techniques, such as gold leaf applications and cast metals.
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.
