Chaise Lounge

About

Chaise lounges—elongated chairs designed for reclining—go by many names, including chaise longues, long chairs, and daybeds. In the Victorian era, the chaise lounge became popular as a “fainting couch” for tightly-corseted women, and symbolized luxury and relaxation in the home. In collaboration with Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret, the famed architect Le Corbusier designed a modern version of the chaise lounge in 1928, which featured a sleek metal frame that could move up or down to meet the user’s preferences. The American duo Charles and Ray Eames produced multiple chaise lounges, including the white fiberglass “La Chaise” (1948), the “Billy Wilder” napping couch (1968), and the ever-popular plywood and leather “Lounge Chair and Ottoman” (1956).
