Modern aluminum single and double seated chaise lounges.
Before the advent of aluminum outdoor chaise lounges, seating that was used outdoors was taken from the kitchen and dining room. According to Ellen S. Wilson's article "Aluminum by Design: Jewelry to Jets" in Carnegie Magazine, the use of aluminum products first became popular in the kitchen.
It wasn't long before the demand for aluminum outdoor furniture would prompt designers to begin showing outdoor chaise lounges made of aluminum.
Aluminum legs were made to look like turned wood legs and were even painted to look like wood grain. As buyers began to enjoy the modern look of aluminum furniture it took on its own look.
In the 70's and 80's plastic patio furniture became the rage replacing aluminum. Recently, consumers have once again began to enjoy the durability and light weight of aluminum patio furniture and designers are responded with chaise lounges that are stylish and modern.
