Follow the plan to build the frame for an indoor chaise lounge. After securely attaching the base padding, use a staple gun to fasten the matching fabric or upholstery to the frame. Alternatively, fasten a base fabric to protect the padding and sew a cover to drape over the chair. This will not be an easy job as you need to accurately measure the dimensions of the completed padded chair, and cut and sew the material for proper fit. The benefit is the ability to remove the chair cover for laundering, or alternate with covers of different patterns. If this sounds too adventurous, sand and varnish the completed chair frame minus the base padding. Sew or purchase some flat cushions and attach laces to the corners of the cushions. Place the cushions on the chair and securely tie the laces to the frame.
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.
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.
