Call it what you want — a chaise longue, daybed or fainting couch — but this sculptural piece of furniture is essential to relaxation. Known for its nap-inducing qualities, the chaise longue is ideal for small spaces that cannot accommodate a full-sized couch. It adds a bit of drama and visual intrigue to a living room or master bedroom suite. Here we’ve rounded up 7 chaise longues that you’ll want to stretch out on immediately.
1. Lawndale leather daybed from CB2, $1,799
Lived-in luxury is how we would describe this daybed by UK-based designer Leonhard Pfeifer. It has a mid-century modern vibe with 100% buffalo aniline dyed leather and a brass metal base.
2. Bury chaise longue from Wayfair, $456.99
A Victorian-inspired velvet tufted chaise? Le sigh. This cobalt design sits low to the ground should you experience a fainting spell from a corset that’s been laced too tight.
3. Oliver sleeper chaise from Urban Outfitters, $459 – $489
Never has crashing at a friend’s place looked so chic. The Oliver Sleeper Chaise lays upright or flat and features a comfortable cushion upholstered in linen. It’s available in grey with a matte black base or taupe with a shimmering gold base.
4. Monroe mid-century chaise lounger from West Elm, $999 – $1,299
Rose Quartz, one of Pantone’s Colors of the Year for 2016, is making a splash in spring decor. This hand-upholstered lounger features tapered wooden legs, bolster pillows and a shelter-style frame that feels feminine and refined.
5. Engage left-arm chaise from Overstock, $862.49
An extra-wide plush cushion makes this the perfect spot to curl up with a good book. Available in gray, a sunny yellow or earthy wheatgrass, it would be a cozy addition to any home office or den.
6. Velvet Orianna chaise from Anthropologie, $1,598
Anthropologie is ridiculous — in its pricing and occasionally its designs, but we can’t help but swoon over this tufted masterpiece. The vintage-inspired chaise comes in 19 sumptuous shades of durable velvet and boasts an English rolled back.
7. Crush extended chaise from EQ3, $1,199
There’s room for two on this Crush Chaise from EQ3. With a tailored shape and tufted seat and back, it’s sure to become you and your significant other’s go-to cuddle chair.
