Teak is probably the best in outdoor patio furniture that is available today. Its lifespan alone is unbelievable, and to add to its longevity it is available in many different styles. Although out of all of the finishes and materials that outdoor chaise lounges are available in, teak is close to the most expensive among them. But well worth the initial investment for your lasting comfort.
In order to be in a position to understand when to use a chaise lounge, it would be a great idea to first acquaint ourselves with what such a chaise lounge is, in the first place. As it turns, the chaise lounge is simply a chair whose sitting area is extended to accommodate the sitters legs. So unlike a usual lounge, where the legs of the person sitting on dangle to the ground, on the chaise lounge, the legs remain on the lounge; making it - in essence - something of a cross between a lounge and a bed.
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.
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.
There are many different alternatives or options when choosing a chaise lounge such as aluminum strap cushion chaise lounges or plastic resin cushion patio chaise lounges that offer a distinct design to any patio. Several of the earlier chaise lounges were made from rattan or caning wood.

If you try to look at the pros and cons in acquiring a chaise lounge chair, setting the price of the product aside, then the only con is that it needs space. And against all these benefits, a piece of furniture that symbolizes elegance, style and other purposes, then I suggest that you should buy one. For the many people that enjoy relaxing and taking advantage of the smells and sounds of nature, an outdoor chaise lounge, just may be that one necessity that you require in order to fully get the experience you so dearly deserve.
