Chaise lounge cushions refer to cushions used for any kind of reclining chairs-chair with seats long enough to support the legs. These chairs are usually used outdoors for bathing in the sun or just stretching and relaxing. The cushions make the chairs more comfortable to sit and relax on.
Since the early 1960's the outdoor chaise lounge has been available. However, the options and versions today are much more esthetically pleasing that that of the earlier days. Today's versions can be customized from the material they are made from, to the chaise cushions you choose to put on them. You can get your chaise lounge in wood, metal, resin, and many other types of weather friendly materials. Some people have these outdoor chaises mostly for looks and when you fit down in them you find they are not as comfortable as they look. In these cases, people end up not using their lounges and they become just for show.
The Recamier is sometimes mistaken for a chaise lounge because of its similar appearance, but they do in fact look different. This seat was named for its appearance in the 1800 painting of Mme. Recamier by Jacques-Louis David and came thereafter to be associated with the French socialite. The chair stays true to neo-classical sensibilities, while sporting a rounded backrest which extends into two sloping armrests, thus taking on a wide U shape. They closely resemble a traditional French lit bateau, or boat bed, though designed for common areas rather than the bedroom. Predominantly backless, there are some Recamiers with backs along the long edge of the seat. The term itself Recamier can be applied to other loose types of furniture design.
The furniture's height of popularity was during the 1800 and 1900s. As the population grew and started to move out into the suburbs this piece of furniture took on a new look being stripped down and were often seen on people's patios. Because they are so comfortable and great for relaxing in it was the logical next step for this type of furniture, the outdoors chaise lounge.
