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.
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.
