It was the French and architect Le Corbusier who made it famous and revitalized its classic look.

Classic Image with a Contemporary Makeover

While cinema might have kept the chaise lounge relevant, it was innovative designers and interior decorators who took it to a whole new level.

Creating Ergonomic Space

The variety of design in the chaise lounge is such that it offers plenty of choices for those willing to get a bit creative with the placement of decor. A cool chaise lounge that is raised at both ends allows you to sit on either side. A traditional one next to your bedroom window makes for a great ‘relaxation seat’ and allows you to work and kickback at the same time. The design of this unique piece of furniture is such that you can place it in any room and it works well even if it is disjointed with the rest of the space!
