History of the Chaise Lounge

The chaise lounge enjoys a long history spanning many cultures. It has been a symbol of luxury and comfort from the days of Cleopatra to today. And it was a favorite in both French rococo and early 20th century design for its structural beauty and ornament delights.

Depending on the style of the time, a chaise lounge may feature as many as six to eight legs. The influence of the era will also dictate:
  • Materials used in construction
  • Fabrics
  • Dimensions of width
  • Density and quantity of cushions
  • Height and position of headpieces
