Chaise Lounges. Tuesday , December 05th , 2017 - 09:41:12 AM
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.
You may think the phrase `contemporary chaise lounge´ is a contradiction in terms. After all aren´t these the items of furniture that French noblemen and Hollywood vamps sprawled on in the long gone past?

It become popular in Europe and was later imported to the United States during the 1930s where it was primarily used an outdoor patio seat or an indoor recliner. Then and now the lounge furniture was designed to be versatile beautiful and functional on both sides of the ocean.
