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.
If you want a modern type of chaise chair, then you can acquire the ones framed by metals and then made more relaxing by foam, leather and cloth. If you want it to be more of a decor, something antique like, elegant and rare, I suggest you buy those which are made from wood, bamboo, rattan. With it, you are not only helping small industries and workers who are designing and hand-crafting these products, you are also developing a more elegant sense of fashion in your home.
Aside from being a symbol of elegance and a piece that adds beauty to your home or bedroom, a chaise lounge chair has also practical purposes. It can be another place where your whole body can rest aside from your bed. With it, you can also comfortably read a book, newspaper or magazine in a relaxed position. You can also listen to music, relax and enjoy the sunlight while reclining to it.
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.
In French, it is chaise longue (long chair) but Americans altered it to chaise lounge because the user was expected to lounge in it. Basically, the chaise lounger is an elongated chair resembling a couch except for two things - first, the back support portion of the lounge slants toward the back, thus, making for a reclined position with the feet fully elongated possible; and second; the armrests may or may not be present in the chaise lounge.
The plastic chaise lounge chair is currently available in the widest array of colors to perfectly match your current outdoor entertaining area. They do not seem to be the most comfortable of outdoor chaise lounge chairs, but if they are the one for you, you can purchase cushions to give you some added comfort if you so choose. They also seem to be among the most affordable, and require very little maintenance in order to hold their beauty.
