Other wood chaise lounges suitable for outdoor use include those made with other rot resistant woods, such as cedar. Wicker chaise lounges are a newer entrant to the market, but they have already become popular due to the strength and beauty of wicker, a natural material. Natural wicker is more suitable for use in patio chaise lounges where there is a roof to protect the lounge from rain, however, as wicker does not like being wet. Resin chaise lounges are safer for outdoor use.
Jacques Louis Davids painting called Madame Recamier, brought even more prominence to the chaise lounge which was soon introduced and fancied by other Europeans, then later by Americans, then to mainland Asia and now all over the world. And along the introductions of the chaise to other countries, comes the variations of its style. Some of the noted styles are rococo, recamier, duchesse brisée, and Méridienne and others.
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.
Compared to indoor chaise lounges, outdoor lounges are generally cheaper and are not upholstered. They might also get less use than an indoor one, as most people seem to spend the bulk of their time indoors, watching television. Whereas upholstered lounges are strictly a luxury item in most cases, outdoor chaises may actually be a beneficial item that get people to spend more time outdoors. This makes them a better purchase for most people than a normal chaise would be.
Aside from the materials, you also need to consider the structure of your preferred chaise. Others find feet down, a little bit lower than your body and with your head elevated a comfortable position, while others prefer their feet to be leveled to their body while their heads are elevated and others prefer their feet to elevated also. Lastly, you need to consider if the chaise lounge that you want, has a reasonable price or not.
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.
