What is a chaise lounge chair?
A chaise longue chair — or “chaise lounge,” as it is sometimes called in America — is a reclining upholstered sofa that is long enough to support one's legs. A comfortable common ground between sofas and daybeds, early iterations of chaise longues were discovered in Ancient Egypt and were later frequently used in both Greece and Rome.
