Apart from recreational use, the chaise lounge has also made some appearances in the medical profession. Patients stretch themselves out and pour out the contents of their minds and hearts as part of therapy.
During its early years of development, the lounge was made from natural materials like wood and rattan, which were often carved with stylized designs. With the modern times also came the modern materials like plastic and metal although wood is still the most popular material mainly because of its beauty, durability and versatility.
Wood chaise lounge chairs are made with thick wood segments that make up the main frame. Across the entire top are slats which are spaced evenly. This surface is designed to support the weight of a full sized adult while allowing air to breath. Metal versions often incorporate fabric or foam over the top to take the edge off of the harder surfaces. Cotton or foam is contained within decorative fabric which is made to be used outside. The cushion can be taken off if cleaning is needed or if the user wants to use the lounge without the cushion.
