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.
Emphasis must be placed on the fact that the American spelling for the furniture differs from its French counterpart. In French, it is "chaise longue" (long chair) but Americans altered it to "chaise lounge" because the user was expected to lounge in it.
You can buy chaise lounges from a variety of retailers, including your local department store or ecommerce websites. Depending on your budget or requirements, it is also worth looking into buying a chaise lounge direct from the furniture manufacture as they can create bespoke pieces suited to your specific needs. For a cheaper option try consulting online furniture sales where products are frequently discounted and there are many bargains to be had. Chaise lounges are a great investment; providing a lifetime of comfort and luxury and are guaranteed to be the envy of your friends.
