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.
Due to their popularity, durability and comfort level, chaise lounges are very collectible pieces. Some chairs that were made centuries ago still exist and they can reach very good prices when they in good condition, can be restored, or were owned by royalty or someone famous. It will not be surprising if they continue to be an essential pieces of furniture in the centuries to come because they are made with such an adaptable, timeless design.
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.
