Chaises longues are one of the most iconic styles of chair due to their instantly recognisable sofa like design featuring a backrest at one end. Meaning “long chair” in French, chaises longues are designed for lying rather than sitting and are similar in style to reclining chairs.
Chaises longues can bring decadence and luxury to your home, whatever your décor. These versatile pieces of furniture can look just as at home in a living room or bedroom as a conservatory and will add a touch of old-school glamour to any space. Choose from new, used and refurbished chaises longues in contemporary and traditional styles.
You'll find hundreds of elegant chaises longues to choose from made in the finest upholstery. Take your pick from luxurious velvets and tweeds through to a range of polyester and cotton blends. You'll also find several styles upholstered in real leather and suede or faux options.
In addition to block colours, there are several patterns to choose from. Classic checks, tartans and stripes are available or you can opt for something a little wilder with animal print.
Traditional Chaises Longues
Traditional chaises longues are what springs to mind when people talk about daybeds and fainting couches. These classic designs are made from opulent fabrics and typically use rich colours such as blood red and forest green. You'll find lots of ornate detailing from scrolled armrests through to carved wooden legs and button and stud embellishments.
Modern and Contemporary Chaises Longues
In stark contrast to the heavily detailed traditional designs, you'll also find a range of chaises longues that have simple clean lines. Modern chaises longues tend to favour a subtle colour palette, while contemporary chaises longues feature bold block colours. For both modern and contemporary styles, you'll find unembellished legs made of wood or chrome.
