A chaise lounge, sometimes spelt as chaise longue, is the French term for a long chair. If placed indoors, it is normally within the vicinity of the lounge. Alternatively it can be an outdoor fixture located on the pool deck or as part of a garden chair ensemble. If you have some time on your hands, learning how to build a chaise lounge is an achievable task. There is also a great degree of satisfaction when you show off your handiwork to family and friends.
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.
Chaise lounges make the outdoors an even more inviting and relaxing place. Handcrafted chaise lounges are ideal for the pool, beach or lake. They are often constructed of rich woods like mahogany or cedar, or powerful plastics. Also, most chaise lounges are weather and water resistant, so these products will last for years. With a host of styles and designs to choose from there is a chaise lounge perfect for every person, setting and occasion.
