Chaises are not only an outdoor furniture item but can also be utilized in different areas of your house like the living room or even your bedroom. They are also great for sitting in front of the fireplace during the long winter months. Adding scatter cushions and sofa cushions to your chaise lounge is also a unique way to make the feel of the room cozier. If you room lacks that warm and welcoming feeling, adding a little luxury in the form of a chaise lounge chair will ultimately transform the look and atmosphere in your room.
The chair, throughout the centuries, has been modified and designed slightly differently from area to area. By the time the 1600s came along, the chaise lounge was adopted by the French and turned into one of the most lush and lavish pieces of furniture a person could have up to current times. The French designers started a trend in Europe with their chaise designs. Rather than entirely copy the simple designs that the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans used earlier, the French borrowed the basic form and added upholstery.
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.
