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.
This piece of furniture is now having a renaissance of its own again and can be found in a lot of homes. They are no longer restricted to Hollywood movies or as the couch used in a psychiatrist office. The Chaise lounge is now finding its way back into a lot of homes. The name was changed when it became incorporated into the furniture making industry in the United States.
Chaise lounge, mention those two words and it conjures up images of Cleopatra, or ladies from the medieval times laying back and being fanned to stay cool but most people will associate this piece of furniture with the French. These two words are actually French and should be spelt Chaise Longue meaning long chair.
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.
