Coming in timber or resin, the chaise lounge can come as its own single recliner unit or can be matched with other pieces including tables and settee chairs. The open slat style allows your skin to breathe as you take in the midday sun and the optional side table conveniently houses your refreshments, radio, sunglasses and novel. Similarly, the 3 or 4 recline positions allow you to absorb the sun at exactly the right angle when the sun moves throughout the day.
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.
For true elegance, craftsmanship build wrought iron loungers have no equal. More expensive than wooden units, they offer a real touch of class. Make sure that any wrought iron piece you buy is rust proof. You'll want wheels to, as they can be quite heavy. Prices usually start at around $500-$600, although you will be able to find cheaper models.
