Plastic, often used in pool lounges, is probably the cheapest in terms of cost. However, this cheapness also applies to quality, as plastic generally doesn't hold up to the sun that well. It tends to get bleached and brittle, fading if it is a color rather than white, and discoloring if it is white. Protective covers are a must for most plastic outdoor furniture left directly exposed to the elements.
The result resembles a sort of daybed, one with a headrest at one end and can have a backrest or be backless. In translation, the French word actually just means a "long chair" and so in the language the chaise lounge can refer to any number of indoor and outdoor reclining seats and deckchairs. In practice, the chaise lounge can seat two to three people sitting upright, or one person can lie comfortably with her feet suspended above the ground. As per design, these chairs can be simply adorned or famously done up with tufted cushions, ornate carvings and svelte fabrics. Antique version tend to be fancier affairs than contemporary chaise lounges, especially as today's models include sun loungers and other stripped down outdoor furniture.
A chaise is often considered a particularly elite or luxurious item of furniture that is not on the list of essential home furnishing items. However they have evolved for present day use from the typical image of opulence into a functional and versatile item of furniture that can be incorporated into almost any style of interior. Chaise might be used as recliners that come with footstalls, double recliners which can accommodate two people or sofa-like pieces that can provide additional space and comfort to both residents and guests.
Before making a purchase, it is a good idea to know the different materials used in making outdoor lounges in order to decide on one for your home. Aluminum chaise lounges are a popular choice for outdoor use, as aluminum has a high strength to weight ratio and is relatively inexpensive. It's not the most environmentally conscious choice, however, as extracting aluminum from the earth is a destructive process.
