Darby Home Co 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. For example, this left-arm chaise is perfect for a traditional aesthetic. Made in the USA, it is constructed from solid pine wood, upholstered with 55% linen and 45% cotton fabric, and filled with foam. It features one recessed arm, a web suspension seat construction, and one included matching throw pillow.
