Chaise Lounges. Monday , December 04th , 2017 - 23:54:02 PM
First let´s look at what they are exactly. A chaise lounge is a reworking of the French phrase chaise longue which means `long chair´. It´s essentially an item of furniture about the size of a day bed but with a raised back to sprawl back on. It´s the perfect piece for someone who needs to relax totally.
The fact that these chairs were mainly the domain of the rich and fabulous they eventually became very much associated with luxury and wealth. This image was further magnified during the early days of Hollywood as they were a commonly seen in film with the era´s starlets draped seductively across their upholstered frames. However the early 20th century also served to make these furniture designs more accessible to the masses due to the industrialized process of furniture making in general. Being mass-produced had the effect of making them much less expensive and soon they could be found in middle class homes around the world.
A chaise lounge or to give it its proper French name "chaise longue" is the ideal piece of furniture for either your patio deck pool area or more likely an indoor setting like the bedroom or sitting room. A fully upholstered lounger is a very plush and comfortable item of furniture adding that touch of royalty to your bedroom. Outdoor loungers are usually not so heavily upholstered because of their setting but with some cushioning can be just as comfortable as their indoor counter-parts.
