Chaise Longue / September 8, 2018 / Adriana Jensen
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 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.
