Is there anything more satisfying than the feeling as you lie down onto a comfortable chaise lounge? The history of the chaise dates back to ancient Egypt, but more modern versions draw their influence from 16th century France, where designers created an elongated chair that would allow French royalty and nobility to rest and recline without the need to move to the bedroom. Offering more flexibility and movement than a couch or lounge chair, without requiring the space needed for a bed, the chaise is a fabulous addition to any home. This week, we’re highlighting five chaise lounges that will allow you to live like royalty, and relax anywhere in your home in comfort and style.
