In order to be in a position to understand when to use a chaise lounge, it would be a great idea to first acquaint ourselves with what such a chaise lounge is, in the first place. As it turns, the chaise lounge is simply a chair whose sitting area is extended to accommodate 'the sitter's' legs. So unlike a usual lounge, where the legs of the person sitting on dangle to the ground, on the chaise lounge, the legs remain on the lounge; making it - in essence - something of a cross between a lounge and a bed.
If selecting wood for the chair frame, ensure the material is sturdy enough to support the weight of your largest family member. An outdoor chaise lounge will require staining and varnishing to lock out the moisture. Alternatively, assemble the plastic or metal parts according to the manual. Invest in suitable padding for chairs placed around the pool.
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.
