Chaise Longue / September 14, 2018 / Adaline Fitzgerald
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.
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.
