French for “long chair,” the chaise lounge is a piece of furniture that first became popular during the 18th century Regency period in France. Today, these gorgeous daybeds are used to add a touch of glamour, elegance and charm to interior spaces as they conjure wonderful images of romantic French design.
But how do you best arrange furniture to make the most of this 18th and 19th century design tradition in the 21st century? Inspired by a Better Homes & Gardens article on how to “Romance Your Rooms,” here are some tips on the best locations for antique chaise lounge chairs in interior styles from traditional to modern.
Place an antique chaise lounge in front of a window with a view.
Make a comfy reading nook in the corner of a bedroom or living room with a chaise lounge, table and lamp.
Arrange it opposite a coach to create an intimate seating area.
Finish a bedroom with a chaise lounge at the end of the bed; it’s beautiful and practical!
