Perhaps no other piece of furniture defines elegance as well as a chaise lounge which derives its name from 16th Century Europe’s ‘chaise longue’ and is translated long chair. It is actually a combination chair and daybed which was popularized during the 17th Century reign of Louis XV and is part of the Rococo period. It is usually characterized as an example of asymmetrical design with delicate, feminine lines first used in boudoirs and then migrating to living spaces.
It is a very versatile piece of furniture that can be used in many spaces and styles from contemporary to traditional to transitional. Using one in your own home will guarantee you a little touch of elegance.
