Chaise Longue / September 10, 2018 / Isabel Malone
Far from the likes of the original prototypes, the outdoor chaise lounge strays from the strict definition of what the seat should actually look like. In translation, the chaise longue simply means a long chair in French, and so applies to any number of outdoor recliners. The lines begin to blur here, as some pieces of outdoor furniture, the chaise lounge, sun lounger and recliner especially, are difficult to actually tell apart. The key parts are just the backrest and ability to lie nearly supine with legs above the ground. Aside from that, there is a definite amount of crossover that must just be accepted.
The cushions of an outdoor chaise lounge must also be waterproof because a certain amount of moisture from rain, snow and dew is to be expected. The inside, a polyfill blend, is also more waterproof than indoor cushions. The indoor chaise lounge is recognized as the proper definition insofar as appearance. The basic design for a chaise is an upholstered couch-looking piece of furniture which is really like an extended chair with at least a headrest and the ability for one to recline and elevate one's feet. Various styles come with double headrests, attached armrests and some also come with matching, separate footrests.
