Chaise Longue / September 14, 2018 / Rylie Potter
The cushion filling for an indoor chaise is very much like any other piece of upholstered indoor furniture. It's the outside covering where the beauty usually lies, especially because the chaise lounge is meant to convey opulence, and this is often reflected in expensive fabrics, like satin and velvet. Leather and microsuede are two especially luxurious materials. Aside from the cushion material, the accompanying patterns and colors adorning it are beautiful and endless. Solid, block color, Asian print, paisley, you name it. If you don't like the way it looks, a chaise lounge is reupholstered as easily as a couch or old armchair.
Follow the plan to build the frame for an indoor chaise lounge. After securely attaching the base padding, use a staple gun to fasten the matching fabric or upholstery to the frame. Alternatively, fasten a base fabric to protect the padding and sew a cover to drape over the chair. This will not be an easy job as you need to accurately measure the dimensions of the completed padded chair, and cut and sew the material for proper fit. The benefit is the ability to remove the chair cover for laundering, or alternate with covers of different patterns. If this sounds too adventurous, sand and varnish the completed chair frame minus the base padding. Sew or purchase some flat cushions and attach laces to the corners of the cushions. Place the cushions on the chair and securely tie the laces to the frame. Apart from recreational use, the chaise lounge has also made some appearances in the medical profession. Patients stretch themselves out and pour out the contents of their minds and hearts as part of therapy.
