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 can be upholstered in the fabric of your choosing and are a great addition to your home furnishings scheme.

Basically, the chaise lounger is an elongated chair resembling a couch except for two things - first, the back support portion of the lounge slants toward the back, thus, making for a reclined position with the feet fully elongated possible; and second; the armrests may or may not be present in the chaise lounge. The individual was expected to lie on his back while using the lounge furniture. In contrast, the recliner chairs from ancient Greece had men and women lying on their sides.

Indeed, there are some situations where the usage of the chaise lounge would be outright inappropriate. But being pragmatists, we will not focus on where the chaise lounge should not be used, but rather where the use of chaise recline would be appropriate. Our calculation here is that you would know that if the use of a chaise lounge in situation A is recommended, then it would obviously not be recommended in situation B, where situation B is the exact opposite of situation A.

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.

Thanks to the extension for legs it comes with, the typical chaise recline will tend to consume considerably more space than the typical lounge. Therefore although you may desire to have a chaise seat, if your living room is too small, you would be well advised not to take it on. Ideally, pieces of furniture like the chaise lounge are best used in the kinds of houses where the lounge is a hall's size. But if all you have is a 'crib' it would be inappropriate to try to squeeze a chaise recline in there.

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.

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.

Previously only seen at fine resorts and establishments, chaise lounges have become affordable enough to place in the backyard. What makes them so desirable is the way they are designed. They are typically comprised of two to three main sections, one for sitting, one to rest the back on and another to rest the legs on. Each one of the sections is equipped with hinges and a metallic ratcheting system that allows them to be adjusted. The positions are varies until the optimal feel is achieved.
