Due to their popularity, durability and comfort level, chaise lounges are very collectible pieces. Some chairs that were made centuries ago still exist and they can reach very good prices when they in good condition, can be restored, or were owned by royalty or someone famous. It will not be surprising if they continue to be an essential pieces of furniture in the centuries to come because they are made with such an adaptable, timeless design.
One-arm chaise lounges obviously feature just one supporting arm either on the left or the right. This harks back to the Victorian times when the lounge was a place for a woman to appear relaxed and yet sophisticated.
The chaise lounge is not just a style of furniture, but a work of art offering the feeling of decadence and romance at first sight. The term "chaise lounge" is an Anglicized version of the French term, "chaise longue." "Chaise longue" means, literally, "long chair." They are sometimes known as "fainting couches," as well. Currently, the term applies to any type of furniture that provides a person with a back or an arm rest on one end that sometimes tapers down the backside of the chair, resulting in one end resembling a bench.
