Whimsy Your Space with a Chaise Lounge

Reading Time: 4 minutes

There’s a new interior design trend making a splash: colour, colour, colour! Design trends are no longer dominated by minimalism and colourlessness. We are entering an era of bright hues and bold tints.

Adding colour to your space is easy with a striking chaise lounge or sectional. These funky pieces of furniture can infuse new life into even a dreary room with their funky shapes and vibrant colors.

Here are a few tips to prepare your home for a bright and colorful new year.

Where Can You Put a Chaise Lounge?

Choosing the right chaise lounge for your home starts with deciding where it will reside. It can be placed in a variety of locations, but some rooms may work better than others. The following are some ideas to get you started:

Create a reading nook

Is there anything better than curling up with a good read? Invest in a chaise lounge, a tall bookshelf, a side table, a lamp, a throw blanket, and other essentials for a comfortable reading area.

A home office with a traditional style chaise lounge upholstered in two different fabrics - a lattice patterned fabric in cream and beige and a solid beige fabric. The chaise is positioned in the corner of the home office, in front of a window with blinds and stationary panels. The walls are painted a soft shade of pink, and there is a wallpapered feature wall with a lattice pattern behind a glass desk. On the right side of the chaise, there is a natural wood console with a table lamp resting on it. The space is well-lit with natural light, and the overall design is cohesive and comfortable.

Refresh your home office

Do you work from home? It might be time to update your at-home office space with something colourful and unconventional. Sitting at your desk all day is not only boring, but it is also a well-known health hazard. Add a chaise lounge to your workspace to make it more comfortable and beneficial for you. The stylish setup lets you be productive and relaxed in the room where you spend a lot of time.

Make it complete

With a small sectional, you can put it just about anywhere. When you have an empty spot next to your window or fireplace, a standalone chaise lounge could be the perfect solution.

Have the perfect walk-in closet

Does this prized feature lack luster? The place you pick out your outfit every day can be a little bit more luxurious with a chaise lounge. You can put on your shoes or sit comfortably while deciding what to wear. Either way, it adds an elegant touch to your walk-in closet and your daily routine.

Sectional Styles

Chaise lounges and sectionals come in all kinds of styles. Which one best suits you?

A blue upholstered chaise in a transitional style is the focal point of the room. The chaise is positioned in front of a window, with a white roman shade and drapes in another window. The floor is a deep brown hardwood, and the walls are white. A colourful floral kidney pillow and a white throw are placed on the chaise. Two drinks tables finished in brushed nickel are situated near the chaise, with a silver and white floor lamp nearby. The room is well-lit and the blue chaise adds a pop of color to the space.


Like a comfortable reclining chair, this type of chaise has a distinctive seat contour to support your legs. Based on the model, your luxurious, cushioned sectional may include a back that can be adjusted to increase or decrease the angle of elevation.

Bench Sofa

The bench-style sofa can be arranged in many different ways. As with a daybed, this chaise lounge has an unupholstered back and high ends on either side. A wide seat like this one can be a wonderful addition to any living room or bedroom.

The Sofa Chaise and the Traditional Sectional

The chair sectional is a luxurious style of chaise lounge.

There is no better alternative to a chaise lounge than this. Traditional sectionals have short seats with cushioned backs, as well as a long seat where your legs and feet can be propped up. Suitable for a living room or family room, this comfortable option seats multiple people comfortably. A sofa chaise is made up of two seats and a chaise.

In each of these styles of chaise lounges can be further subdivided in décor styles, so choose the one you think would be most appropriate for your space. Are you looking for a French-inspired piece, or maybe contemporary, or modern? What shape are you after? Curved? Straight? Perhaps it’s time to consult an interior decorator if you aren’t sure.
