The versatility of a single unit of chaise lounger can be transferred from the pool during sunny weather to the den when the weather turns stormy and yet the furniture will look just as good in either circumstance. The chaise lounge, as it is also called, originated from 16th-century France.

During its early years of development, the lounge was made from natural materials like wood and rattan, which were often carved with stylized designs. With the modern times also came the modern materials like plastic and metal although wood is still the most popular material mainly because of its beauty, durability and versatility.
