For budding interior designers and home décor enthusiasts a chaise lounge is a must-have piece of luxury furniture that looks sleek and sophisticated in any interior. Chaise lounges are extended upholstered chairs which resemble couches but with open ends for a more laid back seating experience. Chaise lounges are of 18th century French origin but have evolved through the ages to come in a variety of shapes and styles to match the more contemporary interior. Chaise can be upholstered in the fabric of your choosing and are a great addition to your home furnishings scheme.
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.
The Captain's Chaise Lounge is one of the most popular, and sturdy, chaise lounges. Generally constructed of recycled plastic, this type of chaise lounge is unaffected by salt air, snow, rain and sunlight. The Captain's Chaise is also available with or without arms to satisfy every personal preference. In addition, five different color choices make this style chaise ideal for any beachgoer or pool owner.
