For budding interior designers and home décor enthusiasts a chaise lounge is a must-have piece of luxury furniture that looks sleek and sophisticated in any interior. Chaise lounges are extended upholstered chairs which resemble couches but with open ends for a more laid back seating experience. Chaise lounges are of 18th century French origin but have evolved through the ages to come in a variety of shapes and styles to match the more contemporary interior. Chaise can be upholstered in the fabric of your choosing and are a great addition to your home furnishings scheme.
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.
