Chaise Lounge Chairs Outdoor Luxury Seating
Chaise lounge chairs are ideal for a variety of outdoor living areas: terraces, poolside, patio, beachside, and garden. The chaise lounge derived from the French “chaise longue” meaning long chair has a rich history, think back to images of Romans and Greeks laying leisurely upon an early version of the chaise lounge. This multi-purpose chair provides a comfortable and chic platform for sunning, reading, relaxing, sleeping and they make great backdrops to show off your fashionable, elegant bathing attire.
Now, chaise lounges are even more popular than ever thanks to scenes like the one in the upcoming Sex and the City movie in which the ladies are lounging on gorgeous, stylish chaise lounge chairs by the pool. The scene captures the sophisticated glamour associated with the sleek, sexy and indulgent outdoor lounger.
Luxury poolside chaises have long been popular at high-end hotels and resorts but we think all divas, decorating or otherwise, should own one of these posh lovelies. Our favorite luxury resort style chaises are:
