Solaina Chaise Lounge November 08th, 2017 - 09:40:40
Nowadays the most popular wood materials for use in pieces of chaise lounger furniture are cedar and teak. These woods are known for their weatherproof properties as well as their excellent grain patterns. The beauty of chaise lounge furniture is that it is adaptable to just about any indoor and outdoor space. As a result it can be moved from the bedroom dining room and living room to the porch pool and even the outdoor deck. Of course most wooden chaise lounges have removable cushions.
Jacques Louis Davids painting called Madame Recamier brought even more prominence to the chaise lounge which was soon introduced and fancied by other Europeans then later by Americans then to mainland Asia and now all over the world. And along the introductions of the chaise to other countries comes the variations of its style. Some of the noted styles are rococo recamier duchesse brisée and Méridienne and others.
Plastic often used in pool lounges is probably the cheapest in terms of cost. However this cheapness also applies to quality as plastic generally doesnt hold up to the sun that well. It tends to get bleached and brittle fading if it is a color rather than white and discoloring if it is white. Protective covers are a must for most plastic outdoor furniture left directly exposed to the elements.
Before making a purchase it is a good idea to know the different materials used in making outdoor lounges in order to decide on one for your home. Aluminum chaise lounges are a popular choice for outdoor use as aluminum has a high strength to weight ratio and is relatively inexpensive. Its not the most environmentally conscious choice however as extracting aluminum from the earth is a destructive process.
