What Is a Chaise Sofa? (Including 15 Examples)

Chaise sofas include a lounging area where you can put up your feet while relaxing on the couch with family and friends. The chaise sofa is an updated version of the chaise lounge.

Chaise lounges became popular during the time French Victorian age in the 16th century. These were made for wealthy ladies who needed a place to relax that was not in the bedroom.

The chaise is now attached to one side of a sofa. Sofas are larger and can fit more people on the seats than the traditional chaise.

Chaise sofas can cost several hundred dollars to several thousand. This is based on materials, how many are made, and how in-demand the sofa is. These sofas are great to have around since people can sit on them or lay down.
