Whether it is pronounced “chase”, “chez” or “shays” we are all about this functional and versatile little place to lounge around. To clear up a bit of the pronunciation controversy we did a little bit of googling and from what we can tell it can be pronounced as either “chase” or “chez”. But here at EHD we don’t care if you call it a chaise, a chez, a tomatoe or a tomato – just so long as you enjoy it as much as we do.
Although I have always been a fan of the chaise lounge in regards to style and function I haven’t actually had one of my own until earlier this year when I found this vintage beauty below from Jayson Home for my living room and friends I have to say…. once you have enjoyed lounging, reading, nap, or cuddle time in a chaise lounge it is hard to enjoy it anywhere else.
We recently pulled together a daybed roundup and also have done a chair and half roundup and recliner roundup, however due to popular demand and request we figured it was time to pull together some of our favorite chaise lounges for your browsing and shopping pleasure.
However before we get into it, there are a few tips to keep in mind before you bring one into your own home. 1) Pay attention to scale and style. Not all chaise lounges are the same size nor does every room allow for a chaise lounge. So look for a piece that can stylistically work within your decor and also will work with the scale of the rest of your furniture. If you have a larger room then you can opt for a larger sized chaise where as if small scale living is your current situation then look for something that might be a bit more sleek or may have a shorter length.
2) Pay attention to fabric. Depending on where you plan on using this you will want to consider fabric and color. For instance the Chaise that Amber Lewis used above although stunning may not be the best option for a high traffic area due to the fact that white picks up stains pretty easily. Chaise Lounges are also one of the ONLY pieces of furniture that you kick your feet up on. So if you are the type of household that doesn’t have a “no shoes policy” then make sure you get a color or pattern that will work for your lifestyle.
3) Consider your options. Chaise Lounges come in a variety of styles (curved, flat, rounded back, as well as armed and armless). So while stylistically a particular chaise may work for your space consider how you plan to use it and find the right piece that will allow for the most comfortable lounging experience.
Now that we have gone through the basics here are some of our favorite options out there (including a few vintage finds) in both the armless and armed varieties.
