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.
If selecting wood for the chair frame, ensure the material is sturdy enough to support the weight of your largest family member. An outdoor chaise lounge will require staining and varnishing to lock out the moisture. Alternatively, assemble the plastic or metal parts according to the manual. Invest in suitable padding for chairs placed around the pool.
The chaise lounge, as it is also called, originated from 16th-century France. It become popular in Europe and was later imported to the United States during the 1930s where it was primarily used an outdoor patio seat or an indoor recliner. Then and now, the lounge furniture was designed to be versatile, beautiful and functional on both sides of the ocean.
