Picture a southern lady. She is the vision of beauty, waiting for her beau to arrive. Her waiting lasts some time and finally she is told that he will not be coming for her, that he has left with another woman. Her hand flies to her forehead and she swoons sideways, falling right off of the chair she is sitting in, petticoats flapping in the air.
A prominent feature on many chaise lounges is that they are equipped with wheels. These wheels allow for easy and fast mobility and repositioning. Moving the chair across a lawn of any size, or down the beach, is effortless and hassle free. Since the wheels are made of the same wood as the chaise, sophistication is not compromised.
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.
