The chaise lounges of of the sixteenth century often had wood accents and luxurious cushioning that made them very comfortable for a variety of activities. From dining to relaxing to napping, the chaise lounge remains a very versatile design. They are often made with plush fabrics that include silk, brocade, velvet, and satin. They can be found in sitting rooms, salons, libraries, and bedrooms. Features that have been present over the last couple of thousand years ago are sometimes revived and paired with modern techniques, such as gold leaf applications and cast metals.
A prominent feature on many chaise lounges is that they are equipped with wheels. These wheels allow for easy and fast mobility and repositioning. Moving the chair across a lawn of any size, or down the beach, is effortless and hassle free. Since the wheels are made of the same wood as the chaise, sophistication is not compromised.
Picture a southern lady. She is the vision of beauty, waiting for her beau to arrive. Her waiting lasts some time and finally she is told that he will not be coming for her, that he has left with another woman. Her hand flies to her forehead and she swoons sideways, falling right off of the chair she is sitting in, petticoats flapping in the air.
