Design Tip of the Week (10.13.08): Chaise Loungin Around

Nothing is better than laying around with a good book or your favorite movie. A chaise lounge (or chase lounge) is the perfect accompaniment for a lazy day. An interesting fact about the origin of the term chaise lounges is that it is derived from a linquistic error. In french, a long chair is called a chaise longue, over time it became known as a chaise lounge or also knows as a chase lounge. A chair to lounge around on. Here are some chaise lounges you are sure to want to lounge around on.
