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.
Nowadays, the most popular wood materials for use in pieces of chaise lounger furniture are cedar and teak. These woods are known for their weatherproof properties as well as their excellent grain patterns. The beauty of chaise lounge furniture is that it is adaptable to just about any indoor and outdoor space. As a result, it can be moved from the bedroom, dining room and living room to the porch, pool and even the outdoor deck. Of course, most wooden chaise lounges have removable cushions.
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. Its not the most environmentally conscious choice, however, as extracting aluminum from the earth is a destructive process.
