Alcott Hill It is thought that the earliest versions of a chaise lounge chair originated in Egypt, where the earliest known models were made from palm sticks lashed together with pieces of cord or rawhide. Eventually, the ancient Romans adopted their own version of a chaise lounge chair so as to recline during a meal. But dont worry, you dont have to be Cleopatra or an ancient Roman to enjoy this seat. Made in the USA, this modern style lounger is constructed of birch wood, and upholstered of fabric, with a down feather and synthetic fiber filling material. It also features two rolled arms, removable seat and back cushions and covers, and sinuous springs seat construction.
