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.
Now for the nitty gritty ... How much will a chaise lounge cost? You may be surprised to learn that luxury doesn't have to be expensive. It is quite possible to find a recliner made of prestigious wood, such as cedar, for around $150. However, some of the less expensive models may be prone to slacking, due to the slats being made from thin pieces of wood. This could cause problems if you are a little on the heavy side. Cushions vary greatly, almost as much as the loungers themselves. Prices range from $30 up to several hundred.
Emphasis must be placed on the fact that the American spelling for the furniture differs from its French counterpart. In French, it is "chaise longue" (long chair) but Americans altered it to "chaise lounge" because the user was expected to lounge in it.
