Chaise style lounging has made its way into the backyard and garden industry. Previously only seen at fine resorts and establishments, chaise lounges have become affordable enough to place in the backyard. What makes them so desirable is the way they are designed. They are typically comprised of two to three main sections, one for sitting, one to rest the back on and another to rest the legs on. Each one of the sections is equipped with hinges and a metallic ratcheting system that allows them to be adjusted. The positions are varies until the optimal feel is achieved.
The chair, throughout the centuries, has been modified and designed slightly differently from area to area. By the time the 1600s came along, the chaise lounge was adopted by the French and turned into one of the most lush and lavish pieces of furniture a person could have up to current times. The French designers started a trend in Europe with their chaise designs. Rather than entirely copy the simple designs that the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans used earlier, the French borrowed the basic form and added upholstery.
The chaise lounge is not just a style of furniture, but a work of art offering the feeling of decadence and romance at first sight. The term "chaise lounge" is an Anglicized version of the French term, "chaise longue." "Chaise longue" means, literally, "long chair." They are sometimes known as "fainting couches," as well. Currently, the term applies to any type of furniture that provides a person with a back or an arm rest on one end that sometimes tapers down the backside of the chair, resulting in one end resembling a bench.
