Ah, pure luxury! You may have seen a beautiful, velvety chaise lounge, which is basically a long chair whereby you can stretch your legs out without having to use an ottoman or foot stool. Naturally, its translation from French means "lounging chair", and that's exactly its purpose. Chaise lounges come in various sizes and designs, with some holding onto their French influence with regards to their style and finishes. A more vintage chaise lounge will most likely be made out of luxurious suede or fabric. Due to its relaxed reputation, the chaise lounge will usually be found outside on the patio for some real lounging. Chaise lounges are excellent statement pieces in your living room, or alternatively at the end of your bed, if your bedroom is large enough. Only use chaise lounges outdoors however if they are made of a hardy, weather-proof material.
The squat style chairs with heavy backs that were carved like a piece of paneling gave way to taller, more slender and elegant chairs. The framework of these chairs were less carved and new directions were taken as far as how these chairs were ornamented. Cabinet makers of the Restoration began to take advantage of the opportunities given to them to design these new chairs. Chairs began to take on an elaborate construction with graceful semicircular ornaments that connected all four legs by a vase shaped knob in the center. The arms and legs of the chairs of this period were scrolled with the splats of the back containing a rich arrangement of spirals and scrolls.
