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.
Retractable backs are one of the most redeeming features found on some chaise lounges. The Teddington and Kingston models are two types that include retractable backs. With 5 different reclining positions switching from sunbathing to reading is no problem. Multiple positions allow anyone to experience the comfort of a chaise lounge without restriction. Whether the lounge is left fully upright, laid out completely flat, or anything in between, this style chaise accommodates everyone.
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.
