Some chaise lounges are also equipped with a small side table. This handy inclusion is the perfect place to rest a book or to keep a cool drink close by. For convenient and simple storage, the table slides directly under the chaise.
Designed in the late 16th century, a chase lounge was initially a chair that was in a lady's bedroom, where she would greet people. Bedrooms back then were not just for sleeping, but were just as much a greeting and sitting room, and were decorated accordingly.
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.
