Chaise Lounge Chairs

If you’re looking for a way to sneak in stylish sophistication to your home’s decor, consider a chaise lounge chair or divan. Whether you’re outfitting a reading nook or adding extra seating to your living room, they’re sure to be a chic accessory that will complete any look. Since it will likely be an investment piece, be sure to make the right decision when purchasing by understanding what to look for and deciding what chaise lounge is right for your home.

What’s the difference between divans, chaise lounges and settees?

There isn’t a big one, and they essentially function in the same fashion. A chaise lounge (meaning “long chair” in French) is a one, two or no-armed sofa featuring a low or half back — think chair and ottoman combined. A divan tends to be a bit larger and closer to the ground, and usually does away with any arms or back, leaving a mattress-like cushion that can be used as a daybed of sorts. Lastly, with two arms and a back, a settee is most like a small, slender sofa. Some settees resemble a bench, and work well at the foot of a bed or in an entryway.

Which chaise lounge chair should I buy?

This depends a lot on the style you’re looking for: many have become more trendy as well, so often the styles appear very similar. Divans tend to be perceived as more functional than a traditional chaise lounge sofa, given their bed-like ability, but the latter can add an elegant touch to a living room or bedroom. In the end, it comes down to function and aesthetics: determine where and in what way you want to use it, and how you want it to look in your home.

Where should I put a chaise lounge?

These pieces of furniture are actually useful in a wide variety of spots throughout the home. Want to create a cozy reading nook in your bedroom? Outfit it with a comfortable chaise lounge sofa and enjoy a book into the wee hours. Settees and divans are also great for adding seating space to living rooms without creating a visually bulky set-up. Place an armless chaise across from a sofa with a coffee table in-between for ample entertaining.

What style chaise lounge sofa should I choose?

Determine where you’re going to place it, and then survey the room’s current decor. For a vintage look, scour flea markets or antique stores to score an affordable settee that will add instant charm to your space. If you’re looking to go modern, consider something sleek and plush. For contemporary appeal, find an armless lounge chair or divan and consider a bold or vibrant colored fabric.

What should I look for in upholstery?

Since chaise lounges are usually meant for relaxation, find a fabric that will suit that. Cotton, linen and polyester will provide a soft surface that’s durable to boot. If you want to go sleek and contemporary, choose ultrasuede for an eye-catching element. If you’re thinking more Victorian era, velvet will do the trick.

Great piece for teen room: I bought this for my teen daughter's bedroom. The color is actually purple and just what she wanted. It arrives in one large box and I just needed to screw the legs on - easy. It looks great and is a good size for a child or small adult (she's 5 ft 4 and can recline on it.

The right Choice for me: Okay, so here's my review of this purchase. I'll start by saying that because the apt I am now living in is super small (living room & bedroom) so buying any furniture that will work is a challenge. The color is exactly like the photo online and as hoped it's construction is good. The other thing is that because it comes in two pieces it fit up the stairs of my tiny building & into my apt. It's comfortable & and looks great in my apt. (The arm rest which has a compartment for storage is actually handy) I'd highly recommend this piece as additional seating (also have a love seat which I also bought from Houzz and which I like less than this new piece). The only complaint is with the always unreliable FedEx. Getting the delivery was a bit of a nightmare but we've all been through it. I've asked Houzz to ship it through UPS but no...sigh). As for their customer service reps, it's a mixed bag, some good, but not all. Depends who you get. The Chaise is great though. Love it.

Nice and inexpensive: Looks very nice and somewhat easy to install once you understand where the screws go. The design of the two pieces still allows a bit of give when you lean back. The support is not great as you can feel the cardboard like bounce when you lie back. But good price for decorative accent and a part time lounger.

Very good chair for the money: The only problem I have with the chair are things you don't see. The shipping was extremely fast, it got here in 3 days. They were both packaged very well. The leather is very comfortable. The seat overall is stiff but gives you great support. The over all look is perfect. The chair does sit a little low but after all, it is a lounge chair. It is also much wider than I expected. My only problem with the chair is the black paint on the bases will chip off very easily when you screw it in. I wish the manufacturer would have the bases powder coated.

So cute but not comfortable: It's truly adorable, but a bit of a pain to put together,..in fact, still trying to get one of the legs to actually screw in correctly ugh. And it's pretty stiff in terms of sitting, but like. SO CUTE. So whatever, I think it's worth it :)

nice chair: I love this chaise, the fabric is nice and the chair is comfortable. The color is beautiful, one of the back legs had a nick in the wood and the packaging was flimsy--it was raining the evening it came and the box was damaged. other than that all is well. Thank you. Nancy B.

Love it!: Very nice chaise lounge. It is the true color as the picture. A little blue which was perfect for my décor as I had hoped. Maybe people know this, but it is short to the ground which I don't mind. Very comfortable for my r&r time. Love it!

beautiful: I can't believe the price I paid for this. Super easy to put together and it looks AMAZING and lux. I loooove how it looks in my penthouse loft. My husband asked my I didn't buy 2. This chair could easily cost $700+ I was nervous because no returns and there wasn't a review but because so many other products had great reviews I went for it. I love how deep the seat is too.
