Chaise Lounge. Sunday , October 15th , 2017 - 15:49:14 PM
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.
Ideally, the chaise seat should only be used where there is adequate space to comfortably accommodate it. Thanks to the extension for legs it comes with, the typical chaise recline will tend to consume considerably more space than the typical lounge. Therefore although you may desire to have a chaise seat, if your living room is too small, you would be well advised not to take it on. Ideally, pieces of furniture like the chaise lounge are best used in the kinds of houses where the lounge is a halls size.
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.
