Chaise Longues: How To Avoid An Expensive Mistake

0040275_spy-664-chaise-lounge.jpeg

When specifying a chaise longue it's extremely important that you can tell your right from your left. This is because the armrests can be made on either side of the chair. Ordering the armrest on the wrong side of the chaise longue can be a very expensive mistake.

Chaise Longues are meant to be viewed from bottom to the top not side-on as many people think and indeed as most marketing images portray them. Therefore it is possible to order a left-sided chaise when you meant to order a right-sided one if you've viewed it from the wrong angle. See the diagram below for an example. If you think of a chaise as a bed rather than a sofa you'll view it from the bottom up - foot to head- rather than side on.

Sometimes a chaise can be designed without an armrest, appearing more like a bed with a headrest, and will not require left/right specification
