Designed in the late 16th century, a chase lounge was initially a chair that was in a lady's bedroom, where she would greet people. Bedrooms back then were not just for sleeping, but were just as much a greeting and sitting room, and were decorated accordingly.
The chair, throughout the centuries, has been modified and designed slightly differently from area to area. By the time the 1600s came along, the chaise lounge was adopted by the French and turned into one of the most lush and lavish pieces of furniture a person could have up to current times. The French designers started a trend in Europe with their chaise designs. Rather than entirely copy the simple designs that the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans used earlier, the French borrowed the basic form and added upholstery.
Armless chaise lounges are great for a variety of reasons. For one, they are accessible from both sides. Secondly, it is easier for people to turn over while sun tanning or reading. Armless chaise lounges look great near a lake or pool, and are perfect for napping after a long day spent swimming or boating.
