This type of chair allows you to be in a reclining position without necessarily laying down. As you assume this position, you are able to rest while still being able to see the surroundings. This is why this type of is so popular for outdoors, as they allow you to enjoy the nice and relaxing view outside.
Chaise lounges are thought to be modeled on common furniture from previous civilizations. For instance, the Egyptians had a similar piece of furniture that was a combination between a chair and a daybed. They were constructed of sticks and rawhide or sticks and cord. A little later on, the Greeks had a similar chair that was used during gatherings and was called a "kline." The Roman civilizations didnt upholster furniture because their versions were cast in bronze or carefully carved from wood. To make their versions more comfortable they used pillows, blankets and hides. The Romans also added legs.
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.
