But if all you have is a crib it would be inappropriate to try to squeeze a chaise recline in there. The chaise seat is best used in relaxation rooms, as opposed to, for instance, boardrooms. Remember, it -is the type of a lounge you get on when you want to relax, not the type of a lounge you get on when you want to think! Where you want to create an image of opulence, the chaise seat would be ideal for you.
Chaise lounges have many meanings. It is called long chairs in French, especially in the furniture industry. It can also refer to a stretched chair, fitting under a persons legs with an armchair or upholstered back. Nowadays, modern discerning and machine manufacturing have permitted chaise lounges to be constructed and turned out more economically. It provide great comfort particularly when they are thoughtfully placed on a terrace or patio.
It become popular in Europe and was later imported to the United States during the 1930s where it was primarily used an outdoor patio seat or an indoor recliner. Then and now, the lounge furniture was designed to be versatile, beautiful and functional on both sides of the ocean. Emphasis must be placed on the fact that the American spelling for the furniture differs from its French counterpart.
The individual was expected to lie on his back while using the lounge furniture. In contrast, the recliner chairs from ancient Greece had men and women lying on their sides. During its early years of development, the lounge was made from natural materials like wood and rattan, which were often carved with stylized designs. With the modern times also came the modern materials like plastic and metal although wood is still the most popular material mainly because of its beauty, durability and versatility.
Homes and hotels feature chaise lounge furniture placed in various parts of the premises both indoors and outdoors. The versatility of a single unit of chaise lounger can be transferred from the pool during sunny weather to the den when the weather turns stormy and yet the furniture will look just as good in either circumstance. The chaise lounge, as it is also called, originated from 16th-century France.
Teak chaise lounges are the best choice in terms of durability and attractiveness. Teaks high oil content makes it virtually rot proof and extremely resistant to the elements. It is a strong and beautiful material. Unfortunately, it is also usually harvested unsustainably and is therefore a poor choice if one is concerned with environmental health. The exception is teak that is farmed sustainably, though this can be somewhat hard to find.
