Chaise Longue / September 15, 2018 / Jillian Morris
Originally, the frames for the very first chaise lounge chairs used in drawing rooms was made from wood. Variations on the indoor chairs also brought about a mobile chaise lounge made from metal used by the French army. This seat was portable and could be folded and unfolded. Today, most indoor chaise lounge frames are still made from wood, some of which is ornately carved. While there also exist chaise loungers with metal frames, they are not nearly as portable or foldable as were their predecessors. For indoor use, it is assumed that the chair will not be moved around very often, so weight and ease of movement are not of chief priority.
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.
