Décor Dictionary: Chaise Longue

{click to enlarge}

Today we are defining a furniture item as old as the mountains…

Chaise Longue: (French for “long chair”) is a low upholstered sofa in the shape of a chair that is long enough to support outstretched legs when reclining. This blend of chair and daybed originated in Egypt and is almost as old as the Egyptian empire itself.
