Chaise Sofa Collection
Is a chaise sofa a good idea?
A chaise sofa is an excellent idea if you need more seating, additional comfort, or to fill a frustrating space in the living room. Instead of using a side table, for example, the chaise can fill that area as an extension of the sofa. Chaise designs are praised for their remarkable comfort - who doesn't want to recline after a long day at work?
What's the point of a chaise?
A chaise sofa can help fill the awkward corner of a living room while also providing some extra seating options to guests (when you aren't using it to recline, that is). Furthermore, some chaise designs will also feature a unique storage design underneath their seat, which can be lifted up for easy access.
Which side should the chaise be on?
There is no right or wrong way to position a chaise, although you typically want it on one of the sides of the sofa, as this is the intended style. However, before you decide on where you want the chaise, consider which side has less traffic - you don't want to be bumping into it often while you walk around the living room. Also, take the layout of your home into consideration, such as where any side tables or rooms are. Once you determine the best side based on these considerations, the rest is easy!
Are chaise lounges out of style?
The sofa with chaise first became popular in the 16th century in France. In fact, this design was made specifically for the rich to recline and rest without requiring a bedroom. Today, the chaise remains a popular favourite for the same reasons in addition to its elegant style. Check our full range of sofa collection options!
