Accessory of the week: Chaise Longue

May 20th, 2014 by Alice

A touch of decadance in a home never goes amiss, and a chaise longue is a fantastic way to bring a spot of aristocracy to your lounging habits. You don’t always have to go for the royal look – you can have a chaise longue as smart or as casual as you like. And your home doesn’t have to be a manor to pull it off.

Antique

This is a classic look for a chaise longue – decadent but elegant. I love the contrast of the unfinished wall behind to ensure it doesn’t look too regal.

Comfy

Having a chaise longue doesn’t mean you have to compromise on comfort – a big padded one can be a lovely place to relax on a summer afternoon and looks laidback too.

Contemporary

A chaise longue can even modernise your home, and opting for white fabric with graphic pillows will look super cool. I love the simplicity of this look, and bright cushions will make your room look extra summery.

Day bed

A day bed is a great alternative to a chaise longue, and can even replace an armchair or sofa. This one is from Sofa.com, and it’s ridiculously comfy (personal experience). The rich, red fabric adds a touch of decadence to it.
