An Overview On Chaise Lounges

Chaise lounges are long, low reclining chairs meant for reclining upon. They are popular as outdoor furniture, but there are also indoor chaise lounges in a variety of styles and materials.

This is the first consideration when buying a chaise lounge: whether it will be used outdoors or indoors. Outdoor chaise lounges must be made from materials that can withstand the elements, most importantly, light and moisture. Most outdoor chaise lounges are made with metal, plastic or wood frames, and they have cushions made from weather-resistant materials that are also often washable.

Indoor chaises, on the other hand, can be made from any materials, and they come in a variety of styles, configurations and designs. Outdoor chaises are also often adjustable, which is less common for indoor chaises. Indoors, chaise lounges can make a significant decorative statement in your living space.

Further considerations with chaise lounges are comfort and how easy they are to clean. Many stylish options are made from fabrics that can be harder to clean, but many buyers consider the tradeoff in visual appeal and comfort worth it.

Chaise lounges also vary in the type and amount of padding they have. Tufting, a textile weaving technique that adds puffiness, is often used in chaise lounges, and also adds a unique visual appeal. The wide variety of chaise lounge materials, styles, and colors means there’s a chaise lounge for every taste and preference.

DWYM Fun Fact

Chaise lounges were popularized in 16th-century France as a status symbol so that the wealthy could rest on them without retiring to their chambers. Closer to the modern era, Sigmund Freud initiated the practice of using chaise lounges during psychoanalysis and psychotherapy sessions, with the patient reclining and the psychoanalyst or therapist sitting at the head, out of sight.

The Chaise Lounge Buying Guide

  • Chaise lounges are traditionally low pieces of furniture, so it’s important to consider mobility issues. Some chaise lounges have arms or armrests to make getting into and out of them easier.
  • Consider the intended use of your chaise lounge. If you plan to use it as extra seating in the living room, choosing a chaise lounge that can accommodate multiple people is a smart decision. If the chaise lounge will be put in the bedroom, a smaller piece meant for one person to relax or recline can be a great choice.
  • For outdoor chaise lounges, removable cushions are often a desirable feature. Some outdoor chaise lounges have cushions with removable covers for more convenient washing.
  • Weight is an important consideration for outdoor chaise lounges. This style of chaise lounge is often moved around outdoors, so a lighter chaise lounge made from aluminum or plastic can be an advantage. However, in windy areas, heavier chaise lounges can be a better choice.
