A lounge chair, sometimes referred to as a chaise lounge, is a hybrid between a chair and a sofa. It’s not as robust or as heavy as a sofa but it isn’t as small and as lightweight as a chair either. It’s this hybrid nature that allows it to be more versatile than both concepts that inspired it. But where could you put a chaise lounge chair, assuming that you have the space?The answer is simple: anywhere you want. The living room, the bedroom, home theater, game room, even the office are all spaces that can make a lounge chair fit right in.
