Don’t think of a chaise as the fainting couch of yore. Sure, you’ve seen them depicted as the chair of choice for the melodramatic damsel in distress, but perish the thought! Today’s chaises are anything but old-fashioned. They’re hip, unexpected and oh-so-comfortable. Here are a few of our favorite ways to enjoy a chaise.
If you ask us, the best way to while away the afternoon is sprawled out on a chaise with a good book or movie. But if your family is of the “you move it, you lose it” ilk, you could be in for a long afternoon. Rather than struggle over who gets the best seat in the house, spring for two chaises and let the lounging begin!
It Takes Two
Consider yourself a cuddler? With about as much space as a full-size bed, this double chaise lounge can comfortably seat you and your significant other. Then again, nobody says you have to share.
Your Attention, Please
We love them for their comfort, but a truly amazing chaise wows with its looks too. With a few stylish throw pillows and a strategically placed area rug, your chaise will become a focal point you can be proud of.
In Your Corner
Have an empty corner to fill? Try tucking in a chaise with a small table and a lamp to create a relaxing place to read. This is a great option for bedrooms, and it’s the perfect way to unwind before bed.
If You've Got It, Float It
A chaise makes a dramatic statement when it’s floating away from the walls. Doing so also frees up space for a fireplace, which will help you create a warm and toasty zone while keeping your chaise front and center.
