To Lounge or Not to Lounge...that is the question



We need one more seat in our library to make it complete.  It's something that's been missing since we moved in...an "I'll get to it," thing that is still looming 6yrs. later.

Source

This morning I had the news running on TV (seeing if school was in session, which it is, woohoo!) and I saw a chaise lounge sofa.  I've seen them before and they've mildly piqued my interest, but nothing more.  Today, I'm seriously considering one for purchase.  It looks like a piece of furniture you could really kick back in to read a book.  OR, it looks like it could be a complete waste of money because it's not at all conducive to sitting, or comfy for reading.

So...I'm torn.

Has anyone sat in one?  Lounged in one?  Are they dreamy? Or a waste of money?

Just looking for opinions.  Many thanks, and HAPPY FRIDAY!!

  1. My parents have one and I have to say, that whenever the family goes over there for holidays or whatnot, we all fight over who gets to sit on it.

  2. I have never sat on one before, but I have to say, the first one pictured, even though it looks BEAUTIFUL, would, I believe, not be all that comfortable to sit on, OR lounge on. The second one pictured (source), would look to me to be the ideal piece of furniture to stretch out on and read a book, or take one magnificent nap on! Just my personal opinion...

  3. Never have had one, but always thought they looked so comfortable and think you should go for it!! :)

  4. I've had the (sometimes dubious) pleasure of sitting or stretching out on several and have to say you want to make sure and try it out. Some are wonderful whilst others are, literally, a pain.

  5. I have a lounge in my living room and love it. I wanted one done in material and not leather. When I sit on leather, I freeze my rear end off.... so I always go for fabric. We like ours, although I don't get to sit down a lot and use it.

  6. I've not a clue since I've not been on one either. I think you should go sit on on yourself and see what you think.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. ☺

  7. i think they are cool....we used to have one, well kinda one that was geared a bit more toward comfort...but i liked being able to put the feet up...ha.

  8. I think it depends on the one you buy. Just like some couches are more comfy than others, so it is with chaises. I do like them though.

  9. I think they looks so comfortable. You have to have the room for them though. That's the down side.

  10. Im going with lounge, These things look so comfortable and stylish

  11. I don't know which one you like better - but the second one looks wonderful! I want one too!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I would love one like the first one pictured above-bit in a fabric cover rather then leather. I can definitely see me relaxing with a book in that one!

  13. My grandparents had a lounge like this when I was growing up. It actually worked really well for extra seating when they had a lot of people over, although I know one of my uncles used to complain it was bad for his back when used as a couch because there wasn't much to lean against. I think that if you have the room for it, it's a great addition to any home and looks great!

  14. I have never sat on one so I don't know, but I am sure you will have fun trying some out heheh!

    Have a loungetastic week ;-)

  15. Never sat on one either, but that last one doesn't look like it would be very good posture wise as your feet may take a hit

    ReplyDelete
  16. No , I don't have a lounge. But I would love to have one! Its so comfy and I can stay in there the whole day, not that my life will permit it haha- Vinma

  17. Although I have never sat in one, so I don't know if they are really comfortable or not. I just love the look of a lounger and so I really want one!

  18. Hi Rosey .. Rudyard Kipling did all his writing on one, when they moved to Batemans near here in Sussex .... I imagine they could be quite comfortable and if I had a large enough place then I think I'd put one in .. I'd have the one with the back and sides .. if you do - enjoy! Hilary

  19. I love the one in the 2nd pic! I have one in my bedroom. Really love it, but rarely get the chance to enjoy it because either my daughter or my hubby is occupying the space.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I do love a good chaise lounge sofa, though I don't have one of my own. I suggest getting one with a taller back for better lumbar support.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The lounge chairs i have all end up being places where laundry or something else accumulates rather than a place we actually sit with out feet up to read a book. Hope you get something you really like!

    ReplyDelete
  22. OMG! I absolutely love these! The top one is my fave. We have an antique fainting couch that I rarely use but my daughter like to lay on it when she is on the ipad.

    ReplyDelete
  23. We have one of these, not so fancy though... and it's super comfy! My hubby wants one of these fancy one's though lol.

  24. To lounge, on the first one. Near a fire. Comfortable blanket, cup of coffee and my favorite book! :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I own one and I LOVE it ... it's so freaking comfy! The funny thing is that I don't sit in it as much and every time I do I always wonder why I don't sit in it more. But it is awesome!!

  27. I want a lounge chair now!! Those are so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  28. i like the top one...
    the bottom looks cool- but not that comfy

    ReplyDelete
  29. I can see that located by a bay window for a place to read a god book! Looks so comfy!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think you would just have to try it out to see if you like it. I will never buy furniture without trying out a showroom piece first.

    ReplyDelete
  31. can i take a nap in it now, please? :D

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have never sat in one of these, but this lounge chair would be the perfect chair for me because if I am sitting I have to put my legs up. I really like this chair, and you should get it! I bet you will love it!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I want one of these so bad for my home office! that chair is fabulous! Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love the looks of the second one! Beautiful picks!

  35. I don't have one, but these are gorgeous! I've been wanting one for our Master Bedroom, though!

    ReplyDelete
  36. We had a sectional that came with one. I actually LOVED it! It was perfect for reading, napping or relaxing.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I've never trued one of these... but I'm pretty sure it's a really handy - I vote Yes!

  39. I have never sat in one however they look super comfey! Especially to red a book or watch tv. It is very good looking as well.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I actually have never sat in one, but now I think I want one. lol.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love the second one. I would have one in my house if I had the space/money. I think you should try it out first. Everything depends on your bodyshape and the use you want to give it. So go have a run in furniture department and try out one with some comfy cushions. Then you'll know if it is the one :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I've never sat in one, but I love the look of the one in the top pictures. It also looks like it's at least somewhat conducive to sitting on when you're not curled up with a book.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think it would be a great place to sit and read a book. Plus, it would be a conversation piece.

  44. I've never sat in one of those before, but it sure looks comfy! We need to get a new sofa as soon as we can afford it. The one we are currently using is old and stained. Have a terrific weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  45. My grandfather had a soft cushioned one and it was so comfy. Plus it looked great too. I liked to lay on it while watching tv or reading a book.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Love the chaise lounge sofa, it would look gorgeous in my home office!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Both are stunning, comfy or not.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love chase lounges, but I'd be looking for something not leather or pleather for our family room. Need something good enough to nap on without the seat sticking to your thighs. But I love the design with these!

    ReplyDelete
  49. These are both gorgeous. I've never had one, so I can't vouch for their comfort, but they would LOOK great.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I don't think I've ever sat in one of those, but they do look comfy to me! And they are really stylish in my opinion. Let us know if you take the plunge!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Yes, they are comfy. There are a lot of different makes and models so you'll have to do your research. I say go for it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I always admire how pretty they look, but I don't think I would ever purchase one for our home. I'd be interested to see how it looks in your house if you do purchase one!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Now that looks like a fab lounge to have a relaxing day after work. Go for it. I love the second one.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Get the right one for you, some aren't great for the back

    ReplyDelete
  55. If you have any of these, the answer is obvious - lounge away. They look so comfy.

    ReplyDelete
  56. The love child of a bed and a sofa chair!

    ReplyDelete
  57. My mother in law has one but I personally won't buy one. It all depends on your taste. I much prefer to have a sofa and lounge on that. :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Oooh! These are both really nice. I have a tendency to drool though and I think I would mess up these pretty chairs. lol!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I haven't but I would love to get one of those for our living room.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I have never sat on one like this, but I think it looks comfy!

  62. My son has one quite similar to the photo at the bottom. His is not leather, but same type of lounge. I really like it and it's quite comfy :) If you have the room for it, I would recommend for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  63. My husband parents had one like this not leather, but it was nice to have a est on but not much when used as couch

    ReplyDelete
  64. I've always wanted one for my future woman cave. I've sat in one that's like a giant wave and so comfortable go for it but try it out first to make sure its the one you want.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I've never sat in one, but it sure does look like a great place to read!

    ReplyDelete
  66. those are so comfy and elegant to look at - I definitely would want one in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  67. The second one is gorgeous! I would love to see how it looks in your house if you do purchase one!

    Have a wonderful weekend, Rosey!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'm kinda thinking that's a read a book chair too or heck, watch a movie or really anything! I just want to sit in it and see how it feels!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I've never had one, but I can't remember if I've sat on one.

    I agree it would be great for relax and read. Afterall I sleep on the couch! However for sitting, it might not be so good for the back, but that is why you have those little pillows for support right ? :)

    I hope you get a really good one!

    ReplyDelete
  70. I have never sat on one but omg I want the second one. Cute and looks so comfy!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Years ago, I inherited a single-person lounge chair similar to the one in your second photo. It had been my grandfather's, and it was supposedly a therapeutic chair for him. I loved it, though. Really comfortable.

    ReplyDelete
  72. These look so comfortable. They are both so beautiful. I wish I could have them both. I would lounge all day, If I could!

    ReplyDelete
  73. These lounge chairs are really nice. I think they would dress up any living room or office.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I have never tried one but it certainly looks like it would be comfortable and I would not hesitate to get it!

    ReplyDelete
  75. They are so comfy-- but for myself I don't believe I would go leather, tuck and roll for sure and they are pretty spendy almost as much as a good sofa-- but they sure are nice

    ReplyDelete
  76. Hi Rosey,
    We have a chaise on our couch. We love it! It's where everyone wants to sit. I like it because it has two sides to it. I'm not a fan of the one with no "arm." I like to lean on something, but that's just me. Good luck with your decision.

    Sincerely,
    Karina
