The Ultimate Relaxing Machine
A chaise longue is the icon of decadent living. Le Corbusier himself described it as the ultimate relaxing machine. Starting life in Egypt, a glamorous chaise longue has been a treasured feature throughout history in the world’s most luxurious homes. Beloved of Pharoahs and Emperors, French noblewomen, Victorian ladies and Hollywood starlets — not to mention Freud — its timeless popularity speaks volumes for its universal appeal.
What is a Chaise Longue?
Quite literally, it is a long chair – a fusion of chair and footstool, creating a seamless item of luxury furniture on which to recline. We believe it is the most versatile piece of furniture you are ever likely to own. Use it indoors as a chair or a sofa. It makes a perfect day bed or even a stylish window seat. Take it outdoors and you immediately have the most glamorous sun lounger. At its heart, a chaise longue is a seat with a headrest. It may also have a footrest, a back and one or two armrests, but none of these are absolutely necessary. With so many variations – a high, low or sloping back, with or without armrests, formal, casual, ornate or contemporary – choosing the right one takes consideration. Essentially, though, a chaise is a place to kick back and relax, feet up, and watch the world go by. Indoors or outdoors, a chaise longue is still associated with luxury, decadence and the high life. No doubt that’s why it is on many a person’s wish list.
