A chaise lounge or to give it its proper French name "chaise longue" is the ideal piece of furniture for either your patio deck pool area or more likely an indoor setting like the bedroom or sitting room. A fully upholstered lounger is a very plush and comfortable item of furniture adding that touch of royalty to your bedroom.

The history of these chairs can be traced back several hundred years to 16th century Europe and the term "chaise lounge" is derived from the French term "chaise longue" which translates to "long chair".

Arranging the chairs in the room is a very important thing. Do not space chairs a great distance away from each other; keep a distance of six to eight feet in distance between them. This is to allow for easier conversation. The worst thing is to for your guests or family to have to yell because the chairs are too far away from each other. Make sure that there is also a lighting source by the seating area so it will not be so dim. Coffee tables should be anywhere from 14 to 18 inches from seats and accessible to all the seating areas. Side tables should be as tall as the arms of chairs of the sofa. Also make sure not to make the space too cluttered so there will still be ample room to walk and move around the living room.
