Is there anything more elegant than the chaise longue? Even the name evokes images of ancient Egyptian pharoahs being fanned and fed grapes! As a matter of fact, it is believed that the chaise longue (or long chair) originated in ancient Egypt as a combination daybed and chair.
I love working with the chaise and its cousin the settee (a small couch or loveseat). Chaises and settees are the perfect small space alternative to the larger sofas and couches.
I’m especially enamored of the Leigh Chaise by Hickory Chair and specify it often. Not only is it incredibly comfy, but the lines are quite elegant, too. This style comes in right arm or left arm depending on where you want to place it in a room.
This chaise from West Elm combines comfort and clean, modern lines.
One of my favorite settees from Hickory Chair is the Elza. It’s versatile, with or without nails, so it can be used in a variety of ways.
This Jonathan Adler settee comes in a variety of fabrics. Imagine how elegant this would be in your office or library.
