But they can be more than just a space to cry or faint. A chaise lounge is also a perfect place to lay back and relax, lady-like, while reading a book, legs tucked neatly beside you.
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.
Before leaping ahead, decide whether you need a chaise lounge for indoor or outdoor use. The outdoor version is able to withstand exposure to weather elements, has a back frame with adjustable angles and wheels at one end of the chair for easier portability. Review the available designs and make your decision based on complexity of the job, available space and budget. You can choose to customize the designs but it's advisable to adhere to the fundamentals and only tweak the aesthetics. Never build on a whim as it's better to have the proper plans or instructions on how to build a chaise lounge in hand. Allocate sufficient working space and prepare the implements beforehand. If need be, invest in the correct tools as there is bound to be more home projects in the pipeline.
