A Chaise Lounge (or Chaise Longue) is an elongated chair meant for reclining and relaxing. It takes its name from 19th Century France, meaning, in French, ‘long chair.’ In today’s world, it can be a standalone piece as well as a chaise attached to a sectional for extra space to relax. Oftentimes a chaise on a sectional can be separated.

When they’re not attached to a sectional, they are freestanding extended chairs—the equivalent of a chair and an ottoman all in one piece. Sometimes you’ll see chaises that have two arms, sometimes they’ll have one arm. Oftentimes, they’re put in a bedroom, reading nook, or living room.
