These lounges can be used indoors or outdoors so the materials for their cushions vary. Indoor chaise lounge cushions are usually stuffed with foam and covered with common fabrics. Outdoor cushions, however, need to be more specialized in order to resist the sun, rain and other external factors. As such, they are usually made of synthetic materials like polyester, olefin, acrylic, Sunbrealla or Outdura. These materials are light-weight but durable making them ideal for outdoor cushioning. They are flexible so the cushions don't deform or wrinkle. They are also resistant to mold and mildew, stains and fading.
Next is the lovely Meridienne. This is one of the more interesting types of chaise lounge because of its eye-catching asymmetry. The top of the chair begins with a higher than normal headrest, followed by a gradually sloping backrest down the side, and the result is something which looks like a daybed. Next to it can be found a matching footstool. The Meridienne enjoyed popularity in Western Europe during the same time as the Recamier and was meant to be used as a bed for midday naps, when the sun is closest to the meridian.
There exist few cultures who exhibit opulence and elegance as well as the French. When it comes to design, furniture is no different, and the chaise lounge is one piece of European innovation that is the living definition of luxury and sophistication. Aside from the recognizable basic chaise lounge design, there are some variations to the form which you may have mistaken for the same thing. Some of these include the Meridienne, the Duchesse and the Recamier.
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.
