Lounging Around

A lot of people have *a thing* for the Chaise Lounge. When I see one I imagine myself lounging on it with a grande Williams Sonoma cup of perfect cafe latte and a good, great, fantastic book. Relaxation in a chair! Yep, that's what a chaise lounge is. Wouldn't it be great if they had one that would fit into the shower? How do you pronounce it? "Shays," "Chase," or "Shez?"

I would love to own a couple of these but what I've really always wanted is a house with an entrance that could accommodate a pouf. I love those old films that have rooms with poufs in the center.

Thinking about, maybe I just take the fantastic book and beverage!

I always think I would love to have one of these, but then the practical side of space and function hit like a ton of bricks and I know that I do not have room in my life for one... so, I'll enjoy them by seeing them here on your blog. It is fun to daydream!

Hi Janean!
I have always wanted one but for some reason I don't have one. I better look into that! LOL!

The last photo is unbelieveable and of course, the ultimate in luxury and comfort. Ophra probably has one!

Those look so dreamy! Would love to have one in my bedroom to curl up on.

Good Morning Janean!
I love them and when we lived in the Victorian I had thought about getting one and putting it in the turret of the dining room with a little table and lamp beside it. I'm afraid our little farmhouse has no room for something so luxurious. That's ok...I'd rather be here. I hope you have a wonderful day. Maura :)

All I can see is Garbo and John Gilbert in one of those silent film, overdone embraces!

Number three is similiar to the red velvet one my Mema had in her bedroom. My aunt has it now. My girls use to lay on it..and act like they were queens..lol I know she recovered it in red ..because I remember my mom saying it looked like a hooker couch..and was so embarassed by it..lol I loved it!!!

I want the white one with all the pillows! And the one submerged in water is interesting and I'd love to give it a try!

I dream of having an old fashioned chaise somewhere in my house. I just need a bigger house!

Janean,

You've located my office! Down pillows of course. Simply heaven.

Your Friend,

I love all of them, I really need a chaise lounge. The last one is a WOW!...... Like in two hours when I am done of all my daily baking, I will need it.

You were right - it was a moth - a luna (white) moth and it was huge.

Hey I have always wanted a chase lounge. I liked a couple of them. The white one I love because I could have my grandson there with me and the shower one - whew - that is a trip.

Nice to meet you!

PS

May I request a motorized one with a wet bar?

Dolores said...

I had one similar to the 4th one down, only mine was green. I loved it for my bedroom, but we gave it to our daughter when we moved to a smaller house.
The last one looks so comfortable, not particularly attractive to me though.
Hugs,

Karen said...

Some of those are lovely. A "chase" in the shower??? Then you go and show a picture of exactly that! (But isn't the water above the head?) :P

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I always say...Shez! I have looked for one for my bedroom...you've found some beautiful ones that I would love! Now if they were just in my price range...heehee! ♥

NanaDiana said...

Wow! I always wanted an inside chaise lounger...we had the perfect house for one-a grand old lady...but now..I don't know where I would put it to really enjoy it. But....it is fun to dream about finding the perfect one! Diana

Deb said...

the last one is very unusual...thanks for sharing..

Porch Days said...

They certainly are pretty but only the overstuffed white one looks comfortable. The others look stiff and hard!

Sarah said...

We have a chaise on the terrace and one in both of our sunporches. Noting like curling up in one of these with a good book or to take a nap. Beautiful photos. ~ Sarah

Nancy said...

That white one looks so comfy, I'd love to cilmb into it right now with a great book. Now with coffee though. I'd be sure to get a spot somewhere.

Ch'ower??? what do you think? Kimmie xo

Barb said...

Hi Janean!

Love, love the, chase, shez, shays?! I would take the leather one any day, it's gorgeous! when I see some loungers, I think of Cleopatra being fanned by a muscle bound servant and a leopard with a studded collar sitting next to her . . . and palm trees. hummmmmmm?

Hugs,
Barb

I wanted one from the moment I stayed in a guest room at a beautiful home on Jupiter Island. I was 23 years old, not long married, and green as can be, but I knew what I liked! Several years ago The Great Dane bought me a chaise longue for my birthday. It has sat in the bedroom and in the TV room - wherever I think I'd like to read and lounge. I don't think there's a nicer piece of furniture.

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

Don't they always conjure up thoughts of rest and relaxation... Even my grandson said he could picture himself with a nice glass of lemonade when he saw an outdoor chaise. :-)

Warm blessings,
Spencer

Need the last one -- indeed

Technodoll said...

Beautiful pear tree lane said...

Forget about pronouncing the's word, let just relax on one, and I will give you first choice janean. lol But I kinda got my eye on the tan leather, please. Thanks for sharing.
Hugs,

Thank you for dropping by my blog and commenting! I pray you find God's grace abundant. I've learned that ANYTHING that draws me nearer to God is "good" for me . . . even pain. It sounds as though you were at His feet ALOT yesterday . . . my guess is He wished you would stay a little longer. :) When we are gripped by fear and consumed with pain . . . we can rest assured we are held by God . . . He never leaves us. He is always at work . . . and in our weakness . . . He is our strength.
Praying for you sister,
Cherie
