Shopping for a Chaise Longue

Shopping for a Chaise Longue

I had a chaise longue many years ago and I absolutely adored it. Unfortunately, it became a place to store my clean washing rather than a place to sit! Now I’m (slightly) more grown-up, I’ve been shopping for a new chaise longue to furnish my bedroom. There are so many great pieces out there!

Why a Chaise Longue?

Chaise Longues are the perfect place to relax and unwind. Their structure is designed for relaxation. Unlike sofas, designed for a seating position, a chaise longue encourages you to recline – to put your feet up and relax.

The Ancient Greeks used chaise longues from the 8th century BC. They used these pieces of furniture to dine and when socialising. The Romans later adopted this practice.

In the Victorian era, pregnant women (of course, the ones who could afford it) would recline on a chaise longue.

I think they make a perfect statement piece in the home! They ooze class and charm. Every home needs a touch of glamour and they epistomise just that! They’re reminiscent of a bygone era. I’m so excited to lounge on my new chaise longe!

My Chaise Longue Wish list

Oak Furniture superstore have some amazing products! This velvet green chaise longe is simply stunning! It looks incredibly comfortable!

Ikea have on offer some less traditional longues. This piece would work well in any modern home and would make the perfect accompaniment to any existing living room furniture.

I’ve just discovered Rydan Interiors and I absolutely love their site! Who could not fall in love with the fabric they have used on this piece! It’s adorable!

If you’re looking for something quirky and unique, this piece from Love Sofas will certainly pique your interest. The gold colours are simply stunning. This would make an awesome statement piece!

I love this funky retro piece! This longue would look amazing in any room with that retro feel! It’s bold, it’s beautiful and it looks incredibly elegant!

    I used to have a great chaise! I read many books in it. I really like the IKEA one – but would need to sit in it to see just how soft it really is

    I have always loved these and wanted one! I just don’t have the room for one right now. The one from Rydan Interiors is gorgeous! I love the print on it.

    I love the idea of a chaise lounge! We have been looking at a few, more like the Ikea one you listed, in place of the lazy-boy style chair that is currently in our living room.

    I love these things! I wish I could have one in my bedroom but it wouldn’t really fit anywhere unfortunately. The first one is definitely my favourite here, I prefer the more traditional looking ones x

    I was wondering why didn’t I get a chaise lounge when I was pregnant, it would have been an excuse to get one haha. I didn’t realise how pretty it was, the gold printed one is perfect.
