Chaise Lounge. Friday , October 06th , 2017 - 11:48:56 AM
For centuries now the chaise lounge chair has been a symbol of elegance in homes nowadays and even way back to the elite families of old Europe. Although it was believed to have originated from Egypt and then brought into art by the Greeks whose artworks depict Greek gods and other elite reclined in chaise lounges, it has gained more popularity and sense of elegance in the Post-Revolution France where it got its name which means a long chair.
Other wood chaise lounges suitable for outdoor use include those made with other rot resistant woods, such as cedar. Wicker chaise lounges are a newer entrant to the market, but they have already become popular due to the strength and beauty of wicker, a natural material. Natural wicker is more suitable for use in patio chaise lounges where there is a roof to protect the lounge from rain, however, as wicker does not like being wet. Resin chaise lounges are safer for outdoor use.
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. Emphasis must be placed on the fact that the American spelling for the furniture differs from its French counterpart.
