Amanda Sabina. Chaise Lounges. December 09th, 2017.
Basic Design. 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.
Functional Uses. The beauty of chaise lounge furniture is that it is adaptable to just about any indoor and outdoor space. As a result it can be moved from the bedroom dining room and living room to the porch pool and even the outdoor deck. Of course most wooden chaise lounges have removable cushions.
They are most often manufactured from plastic metal and wood are best used outdoors because they can withstand the changes of weather without easily getting damaged.
One of the best things about a lounge is the number of seating options that it presents. In the lounge you can choose whether you would prefer to sit up lay down or just recline a bit. Versatility is the key when it comes to this piece of furniture!
