Feeling Faint

Various RBI bedroom vignettes that include a chaise longue.
One of our favourite types of lounge seating has to be the chaise longue (long chair).  We've used them in many of our projects and in a number of styles.  For me they always speak of a kind of pampered luxury.   A little sanctuary from modern life and all it's frenetic activity. They definitely recall a more genteel time.  But I think this graceful symbol of indulgent relaxation, can be part of our time as well.  The NYT's magazine recently included " A Short History of the Fainting Couch; we've long needed a place to lounge".   I certainly agree.
