Some chaise lounges are also equipped with a small side table. This handy inclusion is the perfect place to rest a book or to keep a cool drink close by. For convenient and simple storage, the table slides directly under the chaise.
Irrespective of the build, chaise lounges are made to protect against the sun and other weather elements. Generally a lounger has multiple reclining positions, folds easily for storage and have built-in wheels for mobility. Wooden chaise lounges usually come in kit form, but are simple to construct.
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.
