Lately I’ve been thinking about chaise lounge chairs — chaise longue, to use the proper spelling. A quick search on the Internet provided me with a myriad of chaises and their history. I knew Cleopatra had one; I’ve seen the Elizabeth Taylor movie. But I didn’t realize that the chaise has such a long and varied past. Take a look at Designbloom.com. They have a historical timeline of the chaise lounge/daybed dating back to 900 AD. Very interesting - naturally, the 1960s and 70s had some of the most unique designs, like these three.
Yes, these are lounge chairs!
I love this squiggly chaise, although, it doesn’t look very comfortable.
The nest with egg-shaped pillows looks like a great spot to curl up and read your kids a Sesame Street book, and couldn’t you just imagine the foot lounger in a podiatrist’s waiting room?
Another totally cool thing: If custom-made, fine-wood furniture is makes you gaga like it does to me, check out www.Thosmoser.com. Their craftsmanship is their art and it is simply gorgeous. On their website you can enter to win a cherry-wood and leather lounger.
