What is the French Chaise Lounge?

French Chaise Lounge – The word “chair” is the abbreviated form of the full term, “chaise longue,” which should actually be spelled chaise “longue,” the French form, from which the Americanized version comes. Both spellings are in the dictionary and mean the same thing. A chair is defined as a sofa-like chair with a backrest and a seat long enough to support the extended legs.

The chair is most often found in the bedrooms, where the owner of the house can relax away from the hustle and bustle of family life. A well-placed lamp next to RHE chaise offers a wonderful place to read the latest novel. If the chair looks a little more masculine, the man of the family can also enjoy the use of the lounger to read in peace and tranquility. Occasionally chaises appear in a living room. They are great for watching TV, as well as reading or relaxing. Normally, the fabric is more robust and durable than the bedroom couches. Some sofas have built-in chaise sections.

Contemporary lounge chairs do not usually have arms. The very comfortable loungers are molded in a curvilinear silhouette (see photo), which keeps the body from slipping. A relative’s chair is the Victorian “fainting couch”, which may or may not have a copy or a half-turn, and the arm usually a laminate, which is used to support a person’s back. It was named so because the Victorian ladies whose corsets were too tight would fall weak on them! Another family member is a recliner. When stretched, it resembles a chair and works like one too.
