Chaise Lounges. Tuesday , December 05th , 2017 - 09:46:26 AM
Chaise Styles. Homeowners have many choices in chaise lounges including the following styles: One-arm chaise lounges obviously feature just one supporting arm either on the left or the right. This harks back to the Victorian times when the lounge was a place for a woman to appear relaxed and yet sophisticated. Armless chaise lounges are designed to conform to the natural body shape, thus, eliminating the need for the arms. The head and neck are supported by the back of the furniture while the body is supported by the seat itself.
Basic Design. Basically, the chaise lounger is an elongated chair resembling a couch except for two things - first, the back support portion of the lounge slants toward the back, thus, making for a reclined position with the feet fully elongated possible; and second; the armrests may or may not be present in the chaise lounge. The individual was expected to lie on his back while using the lounge furniture. In contrast, the recliner chairs from ancient Greece had men and women lying on their sides.
The fact that these chairs were mainly the domain of the rich and fabulous, they eventually became very much associated with luxury and wealth. This image was further magnified during the early days of Hollywood, as they were a commonly seen in film, with the era´s starlets draped seductively across their upholstered frames. However, the early 20th century also served to make these furniture designs more accessible to the masses due to the industrialized process of furniture making in general. Being mass-produced had the effect of making them much less expensive, and soon they could be found in middle class homes around the world.
