Basically, the chaise lounger is an elongated chair resembling a couch except for two things - first, the back support portion of the lounge slants toward the back, thus, making for a reclined position with the feet fully elongated possible; and second; the armrests may or may not be present in the chaise lounge. The individual was expected to lie on his back while using the lounge furniture. In contrast, the recliner chairs from ancient Greece had men and women lying on their sides.
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.
The Captain's Chaise Lounge is one of the most popular, and sturdy, chaise lounges. Generally constructed of recycled plastic, this type of chaise lounge is unaffected by salt air, snow, rain and sunlight. The Captain's Chaise is also available with or without arms to satisfy every personal preference. In addition, five different color choices make this style chaise ideal for any beachgoer or pool owner.
