Lamontagne. Chaise Lounge. October 08th , 2017.
Jacques Louis Davids painting called Madame Recamier, brought even more prominence to the chaise lounge which was soon introduced and fancied by other Europeans, then later by Americans, then to mainland Asia and now all over the world. And along the introductions of the chaise to other countries, comes the variations of its style. Some of the noted styles are rococo, recamier, duchesse brisée, and Méridienne and others.
Aside from the materials, you also need to consider the structure of your preferred chaise. Others find feet down, a little bit lower than your body and with your head elevated a comfortable position, while others prefer their feet to be leveled to their body while their heads are elevated and others prefer their feet to elevated also. Lastly, you need to consider if the chaise lounge that you want, has a reasonable price or not.
Nowadays, the most popular wood materials for use in pieces of chaise lounger furniture are cedar and teak. These woods are known for their weatherproof properties as well as their excellent grain patterns. 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.
In French, it is chaise longue (long chair) but Americans altered it to chaise lounge because the user was expected to lounge in it. 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.
In order to be in a position to understand when to use a chaise lounge, it would be a great idea to first acquaint ourselves with what such a chaise lounge is, in the first place. As it turns, the chaise lounge is simply a chair whose sitting area is extended to accommodate the sitters legs. So unlike a usual lounge, where the legs of the person sitting on dangle to the ground, on the chaise lounge, the legs remain on the lounge; making it - in essence - something of a cross between a lounge and a bed.
