A chaise longue is an upholstered sofa in the shape of a chair that is long enough to support the legs. It is thought that the first blend of a chair and daybed originated in Egypt. The earliest known models were made from palm sticks lashed together with pieces of cord or rawhide. Later, Egyptian bed-makers introduced mortise-and-tenon construction and wood bed frames veneered with ivory or ebony. Ancient Greek art depicts gods and goddesses lounging in this type of chair. For Origins design the Chaise Longue is the ultimate in luxury whether placed in a bedroom, lounge or covered patio. Our designs range from sleek and feminine to chunky and essentially masculine.
