Retractable backs are one of the most redeeming features found on some chaise lounges. The Teddington and Kingston models are two types that include retractable backs. With 5 different reclining positions switching from sunbathing to reading is no problem. Multiple positions allow anyone to experience the comfort of a chaise lounge without restriction. Whether the lounge is left fully upright, laid out completely flat, or anything in between, this style chaise accommodates everyone.
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.
While the proper name for them is a chaise lounge, you may also hear this piece of furniture called a fainting couch, likely due to the image of the emotionally overcome southern lass above.
