The chaise lounges of of the sixteenth century often had wood accents and luxurious cushioning that made them very comfortable for a variety of activities. From dining to relaxing to napping, the chaise lounge remains a very versatile design. They are often made with plush fabrics that include silk, brocade, velvet, and satin. They can be found in sitting rooms, salons, libraries, and bedrooms. Features that have been present over the last couple of thousand years ago are sometimes revived and paired with modern techniques, such as gold leaf applications and cast metals.
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.
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.
