What Is The Difference Between A Chaise and Settee?
A chaise, otherwise known as a chaise lounge or chaise sofa, is an elongated upholstered seat long enough to recline with your feet up. It comes from a French term meaning “long chair” and is suitable for seating one.
Often considered to be a chair and ottoman or footstool combined, there is a padded back along one short side and can include one or two arms. Differing from a couch , there is no back along the long side of the seat, which makes it easier to place a standalone chaise in front of prominent areas, such as a window or fireplace, without obscuring the view.
Chaise lounges often add a sculptural element to a room, as they can come in curved and trendy designs that differ from the traditional right angles of a couch or sofa. link out to sofas buying guide
