For true elegance, craftsmanship build wrought iron loungers have no equal. More expensive than wooden units, they offer a real touch of class. Make sure that any wrought iron piece you buy is rust proof. You'll want wheels to, as they can be quite heavy. Prices usually start at around $500-$600, although you will be able to find cheaper models.
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.
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.
