The hardest decision you will encounter on your journey for the perfect outdoor chaise lounge chair for you yard will more than likely be buying only one. It is not all that uncommon for a person to set out to buy an outdoor chaise lounge to go into a particular area of their yard. Once getting the chair home in put into the precise location imagined, the person then realizes they want to add a couple to the pool area, the side yard and anywhere else that could use some added comfort.
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.
Plastic, often used in pool lounges, is probably the cheapest in terms of cost. However, this cheapness also applies to quality, as plastic generally doesnt hold up to the sun that well. It tends to get bleached and brittle, fading if it is a color rather than white, and discoloring if it is white. Protective covers are a must for most plastic outdoor furniture left directly exposed to the elements.
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.
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.
The head and neck are supported by the back of the furniture while the body is supported by the seat itself. Day bed chaise lounges are designed for an upright sitting instead of a reclining position. Its design may not be as body-friendly as the other types but it has its purpose, namely, as a bench-cum-lounger. The homeowners choice in the chaise lounge furniture boils down to design preferences, available space and allocated cost. In all other matters, the lounge functions just as well.
