There’s a reason why chaise lounges conjure images of wealth and luxury. Only the royals, bureaucrats and those belonging to the upper class during the 16th and 17th century could afford and had the privilege of using them. The image continued to stick as the stylish seating became associated to Hollywood glamour.
Thanks to advances in technology and industrialization in the 20th century, chaise lounges have become economical and affordable to the masses. They can now be had for as low as $100 or $300 but still look stylish and add glamour to your room.
