If you are looking to make a purchase of a chaise lounge for your home, or wondering if you need one, here are a few things to think about.
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.
That is how the scene would have looked without a chaise lounge in her southern plantation home. The epitome of style, drama and grace a chaise lounge allows a lady to be dramatic, emotional, and still look like a lady, instead of a fool.
